Student Advocacy

West Coast Baptist College has always been more concerned with producing successful graduates than with growing the size of the student body. We're grateful for every semester God allows us to invest in our students, but we look forward to the day they graduate and pursue God's calling for the rest of their lives. Our entire administrative structure is designed with the success of our students at its heart. Even so, college can be a demanding and confusing time. The Student Advocacy Office provides a one-stop-shop for helping our students to get any and all their questions answered.

Students, whether you are trying to understand Financial Aid opportunities, dealing with personal or roommate conflicts, adjusting to WCBC as a new student, or just trying to get through the overwhelm, our student success advocates are here for you. Sometimes, they provide advice or clarity on who is best qualified to address a student's needs. Other times, they just listen. To contact an advocate, students should dial extension 6000 from any campus phone, dial 888.694.9222 ext. 6000, or stop by the Welcome Center.
