you to these guidelines. It is not meant to be inclusive of all of the policies and procedures
imposed by your student’s high school, the Early/Middle College program, and/or Wayne
County Community College District. Your student is strongly encouraged to read the
schools’ relevant handbooks prior to beginning the program.
Required textbooks and supplies are paid for by the WBSD. If supplies are consumable or are suited to the individual (ie. art supplies, clothing, etc.) those will be the responsibility of the student. All books and supplies purchased by the WBSD remain the property of the school district. If a student wishes to purchase the books for their own and future use, they will not be reimbursed.
The local school district will approve the courses it will pay once your student has met with both the student’s local high school counselor and a WCCCD academic counselor after developing an academic plan. Any change in courses during a semester will require the approval of WBSD staff in conjunction with WCCCD academic counselor. Students that fail or walk away from a course may be held liable for tuition and related fees for said course.
Freedom of ideas, content, and expression are the foundations of college courses. While a student at WCCCD, or any college/university, students could be exposed to topics and content, some of which may be adult in nature, which could be drastically different from their current world view. We believe this open information format is vital in creating a well-rounded student who will become an informed citizen of the world.

At the beginning of each course, the instructor will provide students with written attendance requirements as part of the class assignment schedule. Pay close attention to these requirements as they may differ from attendance policies of the high school. Failure to follow attendance requirements will negatively affect a student’s grade and may result in removal from WWEMC program.
WCCCD instructors will only communicate with your student. Students should check their WCCCD email account daily for important messages from their instructors. Consequently, it is the student’s responsibility to consult with the instructor regarding assignments, tests, and grades. As a parent of a student in the WWEMC program, there are some policies, procedures, and resources in place to assist you and your student. This document is meant to introduce you to these guidelines.
