West offers a FREE COLLEGE that's just right for getting started ...or restarted.

FREE COLLEGE offers individual courses and certificates of COMPLETION OR COMPETENCY in a variety of CAREER-TECHNICAL and ACADEMIC areas. Most classes are 8-weeks long or less, and most certificates can be achieved by taking only TWO to three courses. Plus you don’t have to stress about grades, because FREE COLLEGE classes are always graded Pass or No Pass.
 
FREE COLLEGE classes are NONCREDIT and do not apply toward an Associate Degree or university transfer. Instead, they are designed to help you successfully enter or re-enter the workforce or advance on the job. FREE COLLEGE classes can also help you acquire or strengthen skills you need to succeed in college degree programs.
