Earn Your Degree Online

Through Our Online Degree for International Students Program . . .

You are able to earn a degree from an American college without ever leaving home.

Online International Students may pursue a 2-year Associate degree in Business Administration or Liberal Arts or pick and choose any online classes we offer. Students who complete the West program may also "transfer" to a university as a 3rd year student to complete the last two years of a Bachelor's degree.

Through our partnership with Brandman, Fort Hays and Regis Universities, students may transfer to an ONLINE Bachelor's degree program as a 3rd year student. Both Regis and Brandman University are recognized as outstanding by "U.S. News & World Report."

Real Location. Real Relationships.

Unlike some online degree programs, the West online degree program is connected to an actual physical location. For more than 40 years, West has served residents from the greater Los Angeles area, around the United States and international students. We are part of a 9-campus community college system founded nearly 80 years ago. And, West is part of the greater California public higher education system which includes the UC campuses (UCLA, UC Berkley, UC Irvine…) and the 23 California State Universities. This relationship makes it easier for our students to transfer their course credits to these and other distinguished universities. 


Courses Taught by Faculty.

All online courses at West are taught by faculty with a Masters Degree or Ph. D. from notable universities around the country. The college is fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
