WWCC has developed a one year ESL certificate to meet students needs. The certificate documents the English that you've learned at WWCC and can either supplement your two year degree or be a goal unto itself. We hope the certificate will help you with finding employment and in giving students an incentive if they don't necessarily want a 2-year degree. If you're interested in applying for the certificate, please do so through the Enrollment Services office at the beginning of your last semester at the college. Here's the information about the certificate:
