The Athletic Department at West takes pride in placing academic excellence as the number one priority, and we are committed to supporting the recruitment, retention, graduation and transfer of our student athletes.
The Athletic Counseling Office assists prospective, current and former WLAC student athletes in identifying their educational, vocational, career and personal goals. Additionally, guidance is provided in the establishment of student educational plans, advisement pertaining to the California Community College Athletic Association athletic eligibility rules, as well as NCAA and NAIA transfer rules.
The athletic department at West also promotes academic excellence and celebrates the academic success of our student athletes by honoring scholar athletes who graduate with an associate degree or certificate, as well as those who attain a 3.0 grade point average and complete at least 12 units each semester. The department has also recently established a "Scholar Athlete of The Month" and the "Student Athlete Of The Year" awards in an effort to promote academic and athletic excellence amongst the student athletes at West. Finally, there are additional opportunities for our student athletes to be nominated and honored for their efforts through various conference and state associations such as the California Community College Athletic Association, the Western State Conference and the Southern California Football Association.
