Advising Information

Advising is one of the most critical components for your success at Wake Technical Community College. All students (with the exception of Visiting Students) are assigned an Advisor or group of Advisors to help them select courses, answer questions about their program of study, set academic goals, and ensure students are ready for registration. If you are not sure who your Advisor is, you may call 919-866-5500 for help identifying and locating your Advisor, or click here for more information.

Visiting Students

Visiting students are not assigned a faculty advisor. However, admissions counselors are available to offer assistance. Visiting students are expected to meet the same pre-requisite and co-requisite course requirements as all other students. The academic units may recommend that a student drops a class for which he has not fulfilled the published pre- or co-requisites. Visiting students who have questions about courses may call Student Information at 919-866-5500 and their inquiry will be directed to the appropriate area.


Registration holds of any type other than advising holds such as unpaid traffic violations, tuition balances, financial aid debts, library fines, etc., must be cleared by the originating office.  A hold will prevent your ability to access web registration or to complete your registration.

Academic Probation

Letters were sent to the address on file at the end of the previous semester to all students whose grade point average was below the college requirement.  Students on academic probation will not be able to register without first obtaining a Permit to Register form from their advisor and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar. Details regarding the academic probation policy are located in the College Catalog.
