ASSOCIATE & BACHELOR'S DEGREE
West Los Angeles College (WLAC) has partnered with prestigious Brandman, Fort Hays and Regis Universities to offer international students an online path to earning a Bachelor's Degree. Through these partnership, students are able to complete the first half of their Bachelor’s degree through WLAC at a tuition rate among the lowest in the nation.
The student may then advance to Brandman, Fort Hays or Regis University’s online program to complete the second half. A full-time student taking 16 units may complete the program in just 4 years.
Students must apply for admissions to Brandman, Fort Hays and Regis University separately. Students who sucessfully complete one of the two West Online International Associate degrees, and meet a few other requirements specified by the universities, will be accepted to either university as a 3rd year student. Or, the student may apply to any other university as a 3rd year student through a process called "Transfer."
