Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) on this page. Chances are good that the information you need is on this page.
Q: Do I have to take a placement test?
A: Placement tests are required for all entering students. The results can determine which English and Math courses are the best for you. We do not want students taking advanced level courses if they are not ready.
Q: How do I know what I want to major in?
A: You may not know. Many students come to college not knowing what they will major in until they have had some college level coursework. Eventually this is a topic you should discuss with your counselor or the WIT coordinator.
Q: Which courses are for WIT students?
A: There are currently a number of designated WIT courses - Career and Life Planning 137, English 100JR, SoSc 150, SoSc 160, the Women In Transition seminar. We also have a number of faculty on campus who are trained and enthusiastic about working with re-entry students. We can make some recommendations.
Q: Do other students take WIT courses if they are not in the program?
A: Sometimes. You will most likely find non-WIT students in the english and life planning courses, but probably not in the SS 160, Women In Transition Seminar.
Q: Is child care available?
A: Yes and No. The Skyline College Children's Center is located at the Loma Chica school across the street from the campus. The Center provides a comprehensive child development program serving toddlers and pre-school age children. You must be a student at Skyline College. For eligibility requirements call (650) 359-8637.
