    The registration process is really simple, and you get accepted and a student ID number fast. People at this school are really friendly, but also take school seriously. I absolutely love going here and even though i'm transferring soon, will always look back at WVC positively

    The most important tip for ANY student (regardless of their major) would be for them to do their homework. Teachers assign homework for a reason; and even if its not weighted significantly high it makes excellent learning material that should be constantly reviewed before any quiz or test. Another important tip is to attend EVERY class and always try your hardest.

    They have weeks dedicated to stress awareness among other health issues, and transfer days where universities visit the campus. The counselors did not do too good of a job with help, however. They asked what school you would like to go to, give you the requirements for transfer, and then send you on your merry way. If the question is asking for any advice I can give to students, here are a few. Use breaks given in longer classes to walk around the campus. It's a great way to refresh the mind. Also, don't be afraid to use the health service center, they have free ibuprofen and sometimes they will have free (in cost and sugar) candy. Finally, meet your online teachers at least once in person, they'll be nicer in their emails to you if you do. Asking them a question during office hours is a great way to accomplish this.

    I would definitely recommend getting ahead on an orientation with West Valley. Here, you can get a tour of the school, but also a clearer path to specific classes that you need to take in order to graduate. This made me feel more welcome to a new chapter in my life and this will get students ahead of what is needed of you. Definitely get started on this orientation into the Spring Semester before you come, so you can sign up for classes that you want as soon as possible! Every semester, the new catalogs for the next semester come out. Look through each and every class and plan accordingly! Wake up early to sign up for your classes, so you can get the ones you need and get out of there within 2 years (if preferred). If you prefer to take things a little easier, I recommend to take classes during the Winter and Summer Session. Here, you can take one class per session, which is more than enough. You can get ahead on your classes, your semesters will be less stressful, and you will feel productive during the summer! If you are eligible for the Honors Program, get in it! This will benefit your eligibility for your future four-year college. As for tips on picking teachers, definitely check out rate my professor .com. Do this as you check out the class catalog for the next semester, because you don't want to sign up for a teacher that may be too difficult/easy for you!
