Promise Programs


FREE TUITION for the 1st year

Through LA College Promise / CA College Promise, first-time freshmen of any age and income who enroll full-time can have FREE TUITION for the 1st year. Other benefits of the Promise programs include participation in our Summer transition program; assistance completing Financial Aid forms; priority registration for classes (move to the front of the line); success coaching and tutoring; and a planned out class schedule.
Additionally, many students will also qualify for vouchers to cover book expenses and some living expenses as well as grants that cover the second year of tuition.

  • Complete either the FAFSA or CA Dream Act at a WLAC Financial Aid Workshop or on your own
  • Complete a short summer transition program
  • Attend West full-time (12 or more units) in the Fall and Spring and maintain a 2.0 GPA or better
YES! If you took college courses while still in high school, you still qualify for the Promise program.
