Minimum Registration Requirements

Congrats on completing your application! The following steps are required of all students prior to registration.

1. Guided Self-Placement

Guided Self-Placement is a tool to help students select math and English classes. This tool is required of all new students, even if you do not plan to take math or English this semester. You will sign in using your WVM Student ID Number, which is sent by email after applying.


2. West Valley Welcome

West Valley Welcome is a virtual experience designed to guide you through the registration, financial aid process and introduce you a number of resources as you begin your journey with us.

To begin, navigate to West Valley Welcome and select the Student Login option. You will sign in using your MyWVM Username, which is sent after applying to the college.


3. Clear Prerequisites As Needed

A prerequisite is a course or skill which is required before you can enroll in a particular course. West Valley College has prerequisites that must be met before taking certain classes. For example, CHEM 1A with a grade of C or better is required before you can take CHEM 1B. Please review the course sequence for your chosen major to determine if there are prerequisites required.
