High School Outreach & Recruitment

hide

Overview

The High School Outreach and Recruitment Office focuses on

1. Increasing awareness of the academic programs and support services available at West

2. Helping high school students successfully transition to West

3. Supporting the concurrent enrollment of high school students

 

Initiatives

High School Partnerships

We visit partner high schools on an ongoing basis to prepare a select group of students for the onboarding process. We help these students apply for WLAC, financial aid, and other support programs we have on campus.

 

Workshops/Presentations

We provide workshops and presentations as requested. Presentations provide an overview of WLAC and can include additional information on specific initiatives (LA College Promise, 1st Year Pathways, Academic Programs, Support Services, LMU-West Scholars Program, etc.). Workshops are focused on applying to WLAC and completing the FAFSA/Dream Act.

 

Events

We attend college fairs, college expos, and other school/community events to inform the public about all of the great things that are happening at West.

 

Campus Tours

We provide group tours to connect student to our campus community.

 

For more information, please email us at outreach@wlac.edu or call us at (310) 287-4419.

Enrollment Policies  for K-12 students

West waives tuition for California residents enrolled in high school (maximum of 11 units per semester; 7 units during winter/summer intersessions). Students are, however, responsible for the cost of textbooks or materials. No financial aid is available to high school students.  

 

Please be advised that:

  1. Parent/guardians may not conduct transactions on behalf of the student. 
  2. All classes are college-level classes; not "high school-level". 
  3. All class recommendations should be made by the high school counselor or administrator. Only they can definitively state how/if West's classes are placed on the high school transcript.
