Small Private School Feel - Community College price

West Los Angeles College, founded in 1969, is part of the California Community College system. We are located in the hills of Culver City on 70 beautiful acres with views of Marina del Rey, West LA and Century City. The park-like setting and small class sizes give the campus a private school atmosphere. However, tuition is much more affordable than 4-year universities and private career colleges. Additionally, many students qualify for fee waivers and financial aid (grants, scholarships & low interest loans).
