Academic Flexibility: Though i am new to the process of "higher education" i am enjoying this past year. One thing i have noticed though, is that some of the 3-credit classes i have taken are equal or greater in their requirements for a good grade. It almost feels like i have put more work into some of those 3-credit classes than some of the others! Transferring credits is not an aspect i have yet experienced, but i hear that it works well enough, going from Whatcom C C to another college, but there have been a couple people that had trouble coming to WCC from other Community Colleges; merely a matter of what was taught and how these classes are categorized, i think...

Academic Flexibility: It's a pretty convenient place to get stuff turned in. All the staff make it easy and are friendly.

Academic Flexibility: Transferring credits into WCC was really quite simple. I did however learn quite a bit later (after I thought I was finished with the transfer process) that there was a very important step I had missed - no one had mentioned it in the process. There was a form that was necessary to fill out for the credits to be reviewed and actually applied towards my new educational goals/plan. I was thankful it was not too late when I was made aware if this form as I had applied for the Medical Assisting program and had that form not been submitted, my application would have been thrown out as it would have looked as though I had not completed the prerequisites.

Academic Flexibility: The only complaint I would have about the Academic Flexibility is that some classes are only offered once a year, MAYBE. It's hard to find out which classes are only offered, say, Winter Quarter, and that can complicate the scheduling significantly.

Academic Flexibility: coop class seriously needs to grow up, this is for first time high school students. Not people who has been in the workforce.
