New or Returning Students

New students who have not previously attended AWC can get started with the guide below.

Returning students who have not taken AWC courses within the past year will need to create an account and reapply for admission. Students who have attended AWC within the past year do not need to reapply and are encouraged to make an appointment with an academic advisor to plan a course of study, and log into Student Planning to plan and register for classes.
