New Early Entry Student Instructions
1. Apply for Early Entry student admission.
Select "create account". Once your account has been officially created, you will be able to log in and start your application for admission. Early Entry students should select their major/program as non-degree. Once your application has been submitted, it will take 1-2 business days for processing. Once processed, a dual credit student hold will be placed on your account. This will only prevent the student from adding or dropping courses themselves as WSC enrolls the student.
2. Complete the Early Entry Enrollment Form.
Incomplete forms will not be accepted. The form can be turned in to your high school counselor, faxed to 701.774.4211 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Claim your Campus Connection Account.
You should receive an email with directions on how to claim your campus connection account within 7 days of applying. This email will also include your EMPLID (Student ID number) which is needed to complete this. This step is very important for students taking classes online, IVN or on WSC's campus. If you need your EMPLID prior to this 7 day window, please email email@example.com.
4. Set up your Student Email.
Once you are enrolled, WSC faculty and staff will only respond to emails through your student email.
5. Access Blackboard.
WSC uses Blackboard for IVN, online and some on campus classes. Your login will be the same as your campus connection account. Classes will not be available in Blackboard until 4PM on the first day of the semester. If you are taking an online class, you must set up your accounts and log into Blackboard the first week. If you do not, you will be dropped as a no show.
If you are planning on taking a Math or English course, an ACT/SAT or placement test will be required. Your high school can send over your ACT or SAT score. If you have not taken a placement test, click on the "placement test link" for directions on how to take ours. You can also find our placement test guideline on this page.
If you are planning on taking a course on WSC's campus, we will require a copy of your immunization record with the following vaccines or our Immunization Exemption Request Form filled out:
- Two doses of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine for students born after 01/01/1957.
- One dose of the meningococcal vaccine after the age of 16 for all students 21 and under.
