West Los Angeles College is an accredited California Community College offering paths to university transfer, career education and courses for personal or professional growth. It occupies 70 park-like acres overlooking Culver City, Marina Del Rey and Greater West Los Angeles. On a clear day, from the highest points on campus, you can see the Pacific Ocean. With an active student population of nearly 12,000 regular and extension students, our 110 full-time faculty, more than 300 hourly faculty and 112 classified staff create an educational environment unique in Southern California.
Our Dental Hygiene program is a national model and extremely competitive to enter. We have the only American Bar Association Approved Paralegal program in the Los Angeles Community College District. The campus boasts state of the art childcare and learning services to help students succeed in their studies. Our athletic fields have been host to Olympic events (the hammer throw, and track and field event at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games).
All students at West have the opportunity for success. The College awards more than 600 degrees and certificates annually in 39 different fields. Each year, West sends more than 300 transfer students to four year colleges and many West Associate degree and Certificate program graduates begin professional employment immediately after graduation in consumer education, engineering and industrial technologies, law and health.
Our students have gone on to the greatest of successes. More than 60% of our Associate Degree graduates each year transfer to four year colleges. Several of our former students are now faculty or staff members at West. Our athletes have gone on to professional sports, including NFL Hall of Fame inductee Warren Moon. A former President of the college was once a student at West.
West creates success through its innovative programs. The college offers traditional transfer and associate degrees through its academic programs as well as certificate and special programs. Each semester, the college offers nearly 1,000 classes in 12 different academic disciplines.

did not attend last weekend class because i found out weekend before which was the 9th that i had book the wrong class and that it was too late to get my money back are a credit note for a future class. I must say i was so disappointed but its no one fault just mind. The class that i was interested in is none profitable business.
Loved it, the instructor was very knowledgeable of the topic.
The teacher was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. Also, a very nice guy who was patient and thorough in answering questions. The world would be much better off if we had a lot more teachers like him.
No experience needed. Just a fun project and a nice teacher.

Great class and recommended for beginners and anyone who wants to learn strategies alike!
Really great class! Sandy was an excellent instructor and knew her stuff! I would take it again:)
Perfect for a quick start.
Brian is awesome! He breaks difficult material down in an easy to understand way. I’ve kearned a lot from the course. Probably will repeat it at some point as a lot of material is covered.
