Wilson Community College is a comprehensive community college and a proud member of the North Carolina Community College System. The College has an “open-door-policy”, which means that students are assisted in selecting programs that serve their needs and objectives in life, consistent with their background, aptitudes and expressed interests. Some programs have additional admissions requirements.
Admissions Procedures for New and Re-admitted Students
The following steps must be completed for admission to a curriculum program before official acceptance is granted:
- Go to www.ncresidency.org and select “Complete Residency Determination”. Follow the steps to obtain a residency certification number (RCN).
- Submit an online application for admission using www.CFNC.org. Please note the username and password used to complete the residency determination and to complete the online application for admission will be the same. In addition, you will be unable to submit your application for admission without the RCN.
- Request an official transcript from all high school and post high school academic work to be sent directly to the Office of Admissions in Student Development. The Director of Enrollment Services/Registrar will review transcripts to determine if placement testing is required.
- Take placement tests (if required).
- Meet with an Admissions Counselor in person, by phone, or through Skype to complete the admission process.
- Meet with your advisor and register for classes.
