Students

Becoming a BACWWE Student!

  1. Apply to Solano Community College and get an SCC ID - Solano Community College Application
  2. PIck and request for classes - Fall 2018 BACWWE Classes
  3. Contact BACWWE once you have your SCC ID to request classes - bacwwe@solano.edu

Whether you’re a brand-new BACWWE student or a returning student who has been away for a semester or longer, you’ll need to follow some registration steps before you can be enrolled in BACWWE classes.

The other requirements for enrollment in the BACWWE program are simple. You must be 18 years old or older and have graduated from high school or have obtained a GED.

That's it!

SCC Application

The online application process begins with Solano Community College’s CCC Apply system. Submitting an application for admission through CCC Apply will generate a 9-digit Student Identification Number (SCCID) if you are a new student, or re-activate your status as a returning student if you have been away for a semester or longer.

Here’s how it works:

Registration Steps for New Students

If you're a new student, apply below.

Solano Community College Application

You’ll be directed to set up a Student Application Account, including a username and password. Once you’ve done that, you’ll get an auto-reply e-mail back within 24-48 hours with your new Solano Community College Student Identification Number (SCCID) and your automatically generated "My Solano" username and password.

After completing the application, come back to the BACWWE website and select the courses that you wish to enroll in. Contact bacwwe@solano.edu and list the courses you wish to enroll in.

Keep track of all the information related to your new Student Account — especially the Student Identification Number (SCCID), your username, and password — because you’ll need these to register for classes and to check your grades and transcripts.

If you don’t receive a Student Identification Number (SCCID), make sure the automatic e-mail didn’t get stuck in a spam blocker, or log in to your account again through CCC Apply to double-check that your e-mail address is listed correctly.

Registration Steps for Returning Students

If you’re a returning student who has not taken a Solano Community College class for a semester or longer, you must complete another application through CCC Apply for admission to Solano Community College.

Solano Community College Application

Just like your initial application, you’ll go through the CCC Apply online process.

Please note that if you miss a Spring or Fall semester, you must complete another application for admission to Solano Community College.

Use your username and password to access your existing Student Application Account. Do not create a new user Student Application Account if you already have one. If you can’t remember your username and password information, use the "I Forgot My Username and Password" option below the log on box.

Once you re-apply for admission, you’ll receive an auto-reply e-mail within 24-48 hours with your Student Identification Number (SCCID) and your "My Solano" username and password.

After completing the application, come back to the BACWWE website and select the courses that you wish to enroll in. Contact bacwwe@solano.edu and list the courses you wish to enroll in.

Student Testimonial

The books we use — and that the program pays for — are on the shelf of every plant.  They’re still consulted as reference manuals by people working in the field, and we’ll use them as we start our careers, too.  Seeing those books at the plant where I did my internship made me realize that we’re being given real tools — relevant tools — that are being used today."
