  • Print

You probably have a lot of questions about going to college. Sometimes, the best way to learn is from those who have already been where you are now. Take a look at this video to find out how Westwood graduates think Westwood is different from other schools.


A degree in as little as 17 months. A lifetime to take full advantage of it.

You have a dream, and we'll put you on the fast track to achieving it. Our degree programs provide you with the knowledge, tools and support you need to earn your associate degree in as little as 17 months, your bachelor's degree in as little as three years, or your master's degree in just over a year. By offering year-round classes focused on the most critical skills needed to start or advance your career, you can complete your coursework in less time than students at traditional schools.

Develop your skills with career-focused classes.

We understand that what you want from your education is to improve your career options, and we help you act on that goal from the very beginning. At Westwood, you won't spend two years waiting to get into the classes that matter most to you and your future.

Learn what you need to know. Meet who you need to know.

Instead of merely learning from lectures, you learn by actually doing what you've come here to do. Our instructors are professionals experienced in their fields who can mentor you and teach you what you need to know to succeed in your career. Our small class sizes also promote one-on-one interaction so you'll never get lost in the crowd.

Daytime, evening or online—we make sure our schedule meets your schedule.

We know you live a busy life. That's why many Westwood classes are available during the day, evening and even online, so you can balance school with the rest of your life.With 14 locations in five states plus flexible online learning options, there's little to keep you from starting your career by earning a degree from Westwood College.

We take your success as seriously as you do.

Inside and outside of the classroom, Westwood is dedicated to helping you succeed in ways you may not find anywhere else. It begins with our Quick StartSM process, which is designed to help make your transition into college fast and easy. Once you're enrolled, you'll be assigned a dedicated Westwood Success TeamSM—a team of advisors who'll help answer enrollment questions, sort through student financing options and guide you throughout your Westwood experience. We even offer no-cost tutoring to every Westwood student, in every subject. Even after you graduate and start your career, we're still here for you, offering tuition-free graduate retraining in your field of study to help keep you current on the latest tools and technology.2

We're changing the definition of what a college can be.

If you're looking for an education that breaks the mold, we encourage you to schedule a campus visit, where you can learn more about the advantages of a Westwood education in person. You can sit in on a class, meet our faculty and our students and sample the Westwood experience first-hand.

1 While Westwood strives to accommodate a variety of schedules, we cannot guarantee the ability to work around every student's schedule.
2 Participating in the Westwood alumni re-training program is tuition-free for qualified graduates. Additional costs such as lab fees, books, and supplies are the responsibility of the student. Retraining is limited to the program or area of emphasis from which the student graduated and is subject to space availability.
