Additional Registration and Enrollment Information

College Admission Criteria

Admission and placement procedures are governed by college policy 7.P.03. As an open-door college, LWTech admits all students who:

  • Hold a high school diploma, or
  • Earned a GED, or
  • Hold another high school equivalency, or
  • Are at least 18 years old

Background Check Considerations Prior to Enrollment

At LWTech we welcome all students as an open enrollment college. Our policy is that we do not require criminal background checks for admission or enrollment in any program of study.

Some programs of study require placement at a clinical location, which does require a criminal background check (you are not able to graduate from the program without clinical hours) or you may not be eligible for employment within the industry even if you graduate from the program. You can verify this information on individual program webpages in the “Industry At A Glance” section.

Please know, LWTech is committed to your inclusion at the college and you can talk with an advisor about alternative options that may be similar to the program you initially were interested in enrollment. To find out whether your offense will or may disqualify you from a certain type of job, you can check the Council of State Governments Map. To use the map, click on Washington State, and do a search for the category “Employment.”

Currently enrolled degree and certificate seeking students should follow these steps:

  1. Meet with a faculty advisor to review courses for next quarter (on Advising Day or make an appointment).
  2. Register for courses (students may register for most courses via  web, email, or in person in West Building, W201). See the Class Schedule for a list of courses.
  3. Students pay tuition and fees via the web (LionsLink Powered by ctcLink), at the Cashier's Office, or other modes offered by the college.
  4. Textbook and supply costs are in addition to tuition.

Payments

The quarterly Class Schedule lists fee payment requirements. Tuition and fees are due by the first day of the quarter.

Students who have not paid tuition and fees or made the first payment of the Student Payment Plan may be dropped from their classes after the fifth day of the quarter.

Students who owe tuition and fees will not be able to register for future quarters, receive official transcripts, or graduate until their account has been paid.

Prerequisite Requirements

Many classes require completion of prerequisite coursework to ensure students are prepared for course content and rigor. Students must meet the requirements of a class either by grade, transfer coursework, placement score, or faculty permission.

Waiting Lists

If a class is full, students have the option to be put on a waiting list. This list automatically adds students to openings as they appear prior to the first day of each quarter. Students should check their class enrollment online, with Enrollment Services, or with the course instructor during the first week of classes to see if they are enrolled in the class. Students should remove themselves from the waiting list if they decide not to enroll in the class.

Note: Students may not register for a course (example: ENGL& 101 item #XXXA) and hold a place on the wait list for another section of the same course (ENGL& 101 item #XXXB).

Administrative Withdrawals (Single/Multiple Course Drop)

Students may be administratively withdrawn from an individual class or all classes in a particular quarter for the following reasons. In all cases, tuition refunds will follow LWTech's posted refund policy. 

  • Failure to meet prerequisite requirements: many classes require completion of prerequisite coursework to ensure students are prepared for course content and rigor. Students must meet the requirements of a class either by grade, transfer coursework, placement score, or faculty permission.
  • Conduct sanctions: when a student is found in violation of one or more of the student conduct codes published in the Student Handbook, administrative withdrawal may be selected as an appropriate sanction. You may also refer to the LWTech Student Code of Conduct for more information
  • Non-attendance: in order to maximize enrollment opportunities for all students, instructors may request the Enrollment Services office to administratively withdraw students who (1) Do not attend the first and/or any subsequent class meetings AND (2) Do not notify the instructor in advance of the absence.

Complete Withdrawal (Dropping All Classes) 

A student may withdraw from all courses through the eighth week of the quarter, or the equivalent proportion for shorter courses or courses with irregular start and end dates. It is the student's responsibility to drop all classes. Further information is available in the Class Schedule

Official withdrawals occurring after the tenth instructional day of the quarter are posted with a "W" on the student's transcript. A grade of W does not count in GPA calculations. Not attending a class does not withdraw a student or create refund eligibility. After the eighth week, no withdrawals will be allowed. An instructor will assign the appropriate grade. Depending on the start date and length of the class, an early withdrawal during the first two weeks will not be recorded on the transcript.
