WATC Enrollment

“The journey of a million miles begins with a single step.” – Lao-tzu

We are excited that you are taking your first steps toward a bright future with us here at the Western Arkansas Technical Center. Below you will find a detailed list of instructions to help you get started.


Enrollment Steps

  1. Visit with your high school counselor before completing the admissions packet. Your counselor will have vital information (i.e., graduation requirements) for you to consider before applying to the Western Arkansas Technical Center.
  2. Complete a WATC admissions packet. Be sure to sign the bottom of the registration form and the participation agreement along with a parent/guardian. Part of the admissions packet must be completed online. Instructions for this portion are located inside the packet.
  3. Attend a summer orientation. Orientations will take place at the end of May each year. View the orientation sessions page to find out more about the session and to obtain this year’s dates.
  4. Make sure the WATC office has your test scores on file. We will let you know at orientation if you need to take action. Don’t be concerned if you've never taken an ACT exam. The WATC office will explain how to obtain the appropriate test scores at the summer orientation session.
  5. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our office at 479-788-7720. We will be glad to help you in any way we can.
