Degrees and Areas of Study


International students may earn one of two Associate degrees completely online without ever leaving their home countries. The Associate degree can lead to immediate employment in a wide range of areas or be a stepping stone to the Bachelor’s or higher university degrees. Students who complete their Associate degree at West complete the first two years of course work required for a Bachelor’s degree and at a much lower tuition rate than would be paid at a university or most other online degree programs. Both online Associate degree programs allow the student to transfer to University of California campuses (UCLA, UC Berkley, UC Irvine…), California State Universities and most other prominent universities around the country as a “Junior” (3rd-Year university student).
