Since the dawn of liberal arts education, college students have asked the age-old questions: “What is the meaning of life?” “Are we alone in the universe?” “Why do humans fight each other?” And, more recently: “How do I register for my courses next semester?”
When it comes to navigating the online registration process, the staff in the Registrar’s Office are here to help! But our mission extends beyond enrollment management. We track the completion of graduation requirements and distribution requirements in order to prepare students for Commencement. We record advancement standing credits and transfer credit for courses taken elsewhere. Finally, we are the office chiefly responsible for collecting, maintaining and releasing academic records for all Washington College students, past and present. So when you need a transcript or an enrollment verification, the Office of the Registrar is your one-stop shop!
Our Top 3 Questions
How do I get a copy of my transcript?
When are transfer credits posted to my academic record?
Before taking courses at another institution, students should review the <title=”transfer credit”=”” a=”” href=”/offices/registrar/transfer-credit.php”>transfer credit procedures in full. We require two items to award transfer credit: an official transcript from the outside institution and a completed Transfer Credit Request Form. Students who took AP, IB, Cambridge A/AS or CLEP tests prior to matriculating at WC should check the Advanced Standing page for more information about earning College credit for those tests.
How can I declare a major, minor, or concentration?
Students who have accumulated at least 16 credit hours may declare a major, minor or concentration/specialization using the Major/Minor Declaration form. Download it from the Student Forms page or stop by the Registrar’s Office to pick up a copy.
