Did you know that you can take just two classes at a time and still achieve full-time student status? It's true! 

West offers a wide selection of 8-week classes that meet requirements for graduation, university transfer and your major. By taking just two classes in Fall Session #1 and two classes in Fall Session #2*, you are considered a Full-time Student which may make you eligible for additional financial aid and other benefits available to full-time students. 

*each class must be 3 or more units
