Online College - University Transfer



To “transfer” is to advance from the community college to a university to complete a Bachelor’s degree or higher. A student must apply to and be accepted at a university. If accepted, the student who has completed one of our 2-year, online Associate degrees will enter a university as a Junior (3rd-year student). Typically, it will take the student 2 to 3 years of full-time student at a university to earn the Bachelor’s degree.

The advantage to beginning the Bachelor’s degree at a community college is the savings in tuition. West’s tuition is as much as half the cost of tuition at a 4-year university. Additionally, West’s classes are typically smaller than at universities so students have more access to their professors. Additionally, West’s classes are taught by our professors, not teaching assistants, as is common in many universities.

West student routinely transfer to competitive California universities such as UCLA, USC, Stanford, Loyola and universities around the country.


California has three public college systems: the Community Colleges; the California State Universities (CSU or Cal State); and the University of California (UC) campuses. This integrated system of colleges is designed to make it easier for a student to from a community college like West to transfer to our associate universities such as UCLA, UC Berkley, UC San Diego, CSUN, Cal State LA, Cal State San Jose, etc.
