Keys to Success


It’s said that those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Those who plan to succeed start their academic path by meeting with a Washtenaw Community College advisor. Counselors and academic advisors have the know-how to help you achieve your educational goals. From the moment you apply, WCC can help you set meaningful educational, career and personal plans that are compatible with your life goals.


If the thought of taking college-level classes worries you, have no fear! To make sure our students understand all the information and concepts in each of their credit classes, WCC offers free, one-on-one tutoring. The College’s tutors are available to any student in any WCC credit class on a drop-in basis. Students who actively attend classes and bring specific questions to a tutor will be able to make the most of their WCC education.
