1. Apply / Reapply
Apply online or in person (Clock tower Building D). There is no application fee.
The earlier the better: Apply online now or request a paper version from Student Services. Once your application has been processed you will receive a response email/letter that will include your Student Identification Number (SID) and global PIN.
If you have credits from a previous college(s):
Step 1: Order all prior official college transcripts to be sent to Peninsula College at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles WA 98362. Prior college(s) will have their own official transcript request forms (often on their websites) and may often charge a fee, or you may use this Prior Institution Request for Transcript Form.
Step 2: Complete this online Transcript Evaluation Request Form to have your prior college credits evaluated toward a Peninsula College degree.
2. Find Money
Plan ahead and do this at the same time as steps 1-7.
Applying for financial aid and scholarships is a process, not a single step.
Apply for Financial Aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Be aware of the deadlines!
3. Take Placement Test
To enroll in classes, an evaluation of your skills is required. Take the test and/or submit transcripts for review.
Find a COMPASS practice test and schedule on the Testing Center webpage or call (360) 417-6598 for more information. Please note there is a $20 fee to take the COMPASS (you must provide proof of payment and photo ID at the time of testing). If you have placement scores from another college please have them faxed to (360) 417-6416.
4. Get Oriented
New students must complete New Student Orientation on campus before advising and registering for classes. Online Orientation is available for students who live out of the area. You may schedule an optional campus tour by filling out the online form on the Ambassadors web page or by contacting email@example.com.
Sign up for a New Student Orientation session.
5. Advise and Register
Meet with an advisor to create your roadmap for success and register for classes.
After placement testing and advising orientation schedule an advising appointment with Student Development to discuss classes, create your educational plan, and register for classes. NOTE: If your official transcripts evaluation of potential transfer credits hasn’t processed yet, please bring an unofficial transcript to your advising appointment. Call (360) 417-6340 to schedule an appointment.
Browse the online class schedule at classes.pencol.edu. Peninsula College does not allow late registration. Registration must happen before the first day of the quarter.
After advising you will use your SID and registration PIN to register online.
6. Pay Tuition
Make sure to pay on time. Missing the due date will mean missing out on the classes you registered for.
Pay your tuition and fees with the online payment option, in person or by mail. A payment plan option is available.
Washington's Community Colleges offer hundreds of students free and reduced tuition, books and fees every quarter. Take this quick survey to see if you qualify for additional funding.
