For Working Adults


Nearly 30% of our students are over age 30. So we make sure that we have programs to fit a variety of schedules including our award-winning online program, part-time programs, 8-week classes, evening and Saturday classes, online and Saturday tutoring and on-campus child care. West also has ample on campus parking or take the Culver City Green Bus to the heart of campus. West, with panoramic views of the Westside, has a small campus feel where you feel like a person and not just a number. And, smaller classes mean you can have more connection with instructors.

Accelerated College Transfer (ACT)

Via online or attending classes just 1 or 2 nights per week or Saturdays, ACT students can complete an Associate Degree and qualify to transfer to a university as a junior in just 2 years. Most ACT program classes are offered in 8-week blocks rather than the traditional 16. Information sessions are held throughout the year.

Awards for Online College


West’s award-winning online degree program and courses feature the same content and offer the same transferability as on-campus classes. Students have the flexibility of accessing course work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from home, the office, a computer lab, or while traveling. Out-of-state residents may also enroll. West even offers a free seminar on how to succeed in online classes.
