Next step for Returning Students

Returning Students

Going back to school as an adult can be daunting, but a very rewarding experience. Enrolling as a Marketing student at Western Technical College is a very simple process. Once you are enrolled in Western’s marketing program, you will be assigned a faculty member from your program’s division who will serve as your academic advisor. Your advisor will assist you with your goals, class scheduling, problem solving, and share additional resources to help you be successful at Western.
