WHARTON, TEXAS – Wharton County Junior College is making registering for classes convenient by offering a “Let’s Get Registered” in-person registration event. Evening events have been held at all four of WCJC’s campuses to assist students who may be unable to speak with a college advisor during regular business hours. Staff from WCJC’s Academic, Career and Transfer Center, the Admissions Office and Financial Aid Office answered questions and helped navigate through the registration process. There is no pre-registration required, but students must have completed their Admission Status checklist prior to the event.

“We’ll be there to make sure you receive the help you need to start off on the right foot,” said Director of Academic and Career Advising Dr. Mike Adkins. “We’d love to see a lot of students attend.”

Initial events were held in June and July. One remaining event is scheduled for the following:

  • Tuesday, Aug. 17 – 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Room 228 on the Richmond Campus, Room 370 on the Sugar Land Campus and in the Library Computer Lab at the Wharton Campus

Students may also attend a one-hour walk-in group advising session at the Wharton and Sugar Land campus every Wednesday at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The Wharton sessions will take place on the third level of the Pioneer Student Center and the Sugar Land sessions will be in Room 376. Appointments are not required.

Advisors may also be reached during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday) by scheduling an appointment. In-person and virtual advising are both available. Visit the college’s website for more information. 

In addition to registering for classes, students are encouraged to review the “Fund Your Future” resources webpage found on the college’s website at

“The college is offering a number of resources to assist students in funding their future at WCJC,” explained Zina Carter, WCJC’s director of marketing, communications and advancement. “Resources range from scholarships for all first-time-in-college WCJC students to discounted tuition and fees to various forms of federal aid and much more.”
