SmartPairs and SmartTerms

Go part-time by choosing a SmartPair, Go full-time by building a SmartTerm

Only WCC offers SmartPairs and SmartTerms! These specifically chosen 7-week online courses allow you to rapidly make progress towards your transfer goal. With SmartPairs you can focus on one class at a time to complete double the transferable credits in a semester, as a part-time student. Or, with a SmartTerm, you can focus on two classes at a time, with a full-time (minimum 12 credit hour) schedule. SmartPairs and SmartTerms are offered in Science, Math, English, Business, Social Science and Humanities. You can complete your General Education Requirements with SmartTerms in two semesters with one class in the Summer.
