Paying for Someone Else (Sponsorship Billing)

If you are paying for someone else, such as an employer paying on behalf of an employee, please email the Workforce Continuing Education Registration Form and Sponsorship Billing Template found below to [email protected]. No payment should be sent until an invoice is received from our Accounting Department, and that will probably be after the course has started. If you have multiple employees, you can indicate all in the letter, but each must complete the registration form. We will register the student(s) and forward the letter for processing. Online registration is not an option with sponsorship billing. The letter must have an authorizing signature.

If you do not receive an email confirmation within 24 hours, please call 984-275-3923 or 984-275-4178. Sponsors are responsible for giving the course information to their employees.

Community-based organizations

If you are a community-based organization and would like to partner with Wake Tech to set up sponsorship billing on behalf of a client, to ensure student support, tracking and success, please call 919-866-5853 or email [email protected].

Withdrawal or request for transfer

In the event a sponsorship is withdrawn, it is the responsibility of the sponsoring agency to notify the college immediately in writing to the Workforce Continuing Education Registrar at [email protected] before class starts, to prevent being sent an invoice for registration charges. In the event a transfer is required, a new sponsorship form must be submitted prior to the 10% point of total scheduled course hours, for both courses.

Read official policy in College Catalog

To request a refund, email the Registrar's Office at [email protected] or call 984-275-3923 or 984-275-4178.

Registration Schedule

Registration for Workforce Continuing Education classes is ongoing throughout the year. When viewing a course in the WCE Course Catalog, if a class section is visible in the Available Classes area, then you will be able to see the number of seats still open for registration. If no class sections are visible, then you can request to be notified about the next available section, using the "Notify Me" box. 

Registrations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the minimum number of students necessary for classes to be held, we encourage you to sign up at least one week before the class starts. Enrollments after the start date of the class are not eligible for a full refund.


Registration Confirmation

If you register online, an automated email confirmation will be sent to the email address we have on file for you. 

NOTE: We can contact you only if we have your current information on file. It is the student’s responsibility to update any changes to contact information (i.e. phone number, address, email). Student information is not automatically updated when a new course registration is received. To make changes to your student record, call the Workforce Continuing Education Registrar’s office at 984-275-3923 or 984-275-4178 or email [email protected]


Class Cancellation Policy

At times, courses may be canceled. In the event of a cancellation, each registered student will be contacted at the phone number or email address on file for the student. Whenever possible, the decision to cancel a course will take place a minimum of 48 hours prior to the start of the course. 

NOTE: We can contact you only if we have your current information on file. It is the student’s responsibility to update any changes to contact information (i.e. phone number, address, email). Student information is not automatically updated when a new course registration is received.
