At WCCMT applications are processed on a first-come first-serve basis.

Applications received after the class is full but prior to the application deadline date may be placed on a waiting list or may request enrollment in the subsequent class.

To ensure processing without delay, please follow the instructions on the application form carefully. A complete application, which meets all requirements, does not constitute a guarantee of acceptance.

Late applications will be accepted until commencement of classes if space is available. Applications received after the class is full but prior to the application deadline date may be placed on a waiting list or may request enrollment in the subsequent class.
