Helping Students "Go West. Go Far." Since 1974

Founded in 1969, West Los Angeles College has provided educational opportunities and pathways for thousands of deserving students to succeed in college and career.

A West education enriches students with the knowledge and skills needed to earn certificates and undergraduate degrees to transfer, build careers, and pursue life-long learning. With more than 18,000 students annually in college credit classes, West offers paths to university transfer, career education and courses for personal or professional growth.

The Foundation and its board strive to raise the funds and awareness necessary to ensure that availability and access to a West LA College education is open to all, regardless of financial circumstance, as well as support the endeavors of the College’s leaders and educators as they further build institutional capability and excellence.
