Woodland began offering outreach classes in the fall of 1975. Woodland was designated as an approved education center by the California Postsecondary Education Commission in 1981.
Woodland Center (now Woodland Community College) moved to its current 120-acre (49-hectare) location in 1990. Woodland Center was designated as a self-sufficient community college by the Yuba Community College District in 1999, the same year that a Child Development Center opened on campus. The next year, the district got clearance from the State Chancellor’s office to begin the process of transforming Woodland Center into a comprehensive college.
Since 1972, the Lake County Campus has provided courses to Lake County residents. At Konocti Harbor Inn, the campus centre began with a modest offering of a few courses. In a gorgeous oak woodland setting in Clearlake, California, the campus today accommodates 1000 students in modern facilities.
Our objectives remain the same
To provide high-quality student services and academic programmes that will assist you in achieving your educational and professional objectives. To that end, we want to make sure that students have access to the right student support services for a smooth matriculation process and to life-long learning strategies that will serve as a foundation for future career and academic exploration.
Many transfer degrees and certificate programmes are available at Woodland Community College. Whether you want to get an associate’s degree and transfer to a four-year university or gain a specialized certificate, Woodland Community College offers a programme that will meet your needs.
On August 8, 2018, the Woodland Community College team completed and submitted its Institutional Self Evaluation Report (ISER) to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) as well as our visiting team members. A pre-visit will take place on August 23, 2018, followed by the full visit on October 8–11, 2018. The College will continue to support this work over the following two months by ensuring that all teachers and staff have access to our ISER. A full copy of our report can be found below.
WCC and LCC Funds
Above and beyond the public money granted by the state of California to the campus, its parent college, and the Yuba Community College District, the Woodland Campus Fund and Lake Campus Fund support student scholarships and other programmes. The Yuba Community College District Foundation’s Lake County Campus Fund is a self-sustaining auxiliary of the broader Yuba Community College District Foundation. Because of our Foundation’s 501(c)3 status, all donations are fully tax-deductible to the degree feasible.
Our Student’s Goals
The most common motivation for students attending WCC is to obtain an Associate’s Degree and then transfer to a bachelor degree-granting institution (43 %). Many students (10%) attend WCC to finish their general education requirements before continuing their study in a bachelor programme.
An Associate’s Degree is a primary priority for many WCC students. Approximately 25% of our students say they are enrolled only for the purpose of earning an A.A., A.S., or a Certificate. Some (12%) are looking for occupational degrees or certificates, while others (11%) believe that the Associate of Arts or Sciences will suffice.
