Wallace State Community College maintains an "open door" admissions policy. All students who have earned a high school diploma or GED are eligible for admission.
In addition to submitting an application for admission, students are required to supply the College with an official copy of their high school transcript or an official copy of their GED scores. Students transferring from another college must submit an admissions application and an official copy of their transcript(s) from each college they have attended. Transient students must submit a transient letter from their home institution stating the courses that they will be allowed to take, in addition to an application for admission. The Office of Admissions will not issue copies of transcripts from other colleges or copies of high school transcripts to students. Health program applicants must obtain copies of transcripts from their previous colleges and high school if required for their application packet.
Graduates from a non-accredited high school, with a diploma demonstrating successful completion of a course of study on the secondary level based upon the Carnegie units required by the state education agency at the time of the award (currently 24) and a minimum ACT score of 16 or the equivalent SAT score of 735, are eligible for admission. If the above requirements are not met, the student must take a GED test.
Special requirements may apply to international students seeking admission. Students must submit official transcripts, an I-20 Form, TOEFL scores, declaration of responsibility statement, proof of insurance, and all appropriate admissions forms. Further information is available by contacting the Wallace State Admissions Office or by viewing the WSCC Catalog online.
Accelerated high school students who have completed the tenth grade, have a cumulative "B" average, and are recommended by the local principal may enroll at Wallace State only in postsecondary courses for which high school prerequisites have been completed. Exceptions may apply for students documented as "gifted and talented" according to the standards included in the State Plan for Exceptional Children and Youth.
The Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit High School program allows eligible high school students to enroll in college classes concurrently with high school classes (either on the college campus or at the high school) and receive both high school and college credit. The student must be in grade ten, eleven, or twelve, have a "B" average, and obtain written approval of the Principal and Superintendent.
Non-Credit Students who enroll exclusively in non-credit courses may be granted admission without a minimum score on the ACT or SAT, a GED Certificate, or transcripts from a high school or college.
Please note that admission to the College does not guarantee entrance into a particular course or program. Specific program requirements may be found in the Wallace State catalog.
