Information for Course Credit:
Non-WCU students who wish to receive academic credit should follow the procedure below:
- Complete a WCU Application for Admission and pay a $65 application fee. This is a one-time fee and will not be required of
a student who has recently been admitted to WCU. Please be sure to complete the entire
application. Incomplete applications may cause delays. This fee is non-refundable. Students must meet the WCU admission criteria as determined by the WCU Office of Admissions.
- Register, pay application fee, and tuition online. Pay a fee equal to the amount of credit desired. Should the student not be eligible
for admission to WCU, the course cost will be refunded.
Pending the admission to WCU, the student will be registered for the Adventure Treks
- Should the student desire a transcript be sent at the end of the course (after grades
are posted), complete the transcript request. A signature is required. Scan the transcript request and email it to email@example.com with "Adventure Treks Course" in the subject line.
