  • With our REG 365 initiative, class registration becomes available in April/May each year, allowing registrations for the following Summer, Fall, and Spring semesters - the entire academic year all at once! Priority registration is granted based upon special factors such as active military/veteran status, membership in a special group (i.e. President's Scholars, SSS TRiO), and number of college units completed.

    1. The first step is to have your official transcripts sent to us from any previous colleges or universities you have attended. Currently, West Hills College requires official copies of transcripts from ANY institution of higher education you have attended (whether you passed classes or not) in order to grant a West Hills College degree. To receive credit, the school you attended must be regionally-accredited.

      Typically, your previous school will have a link on their website or portal to request your transcripts be sent to us (or directly to you). Transcripts must still be sealed to be considered official. Allow 2-3 weeks from the time you requested them for your transcripts to arrive. Then, speak to your team counselor to request that your transcripts be evaluated and schedule a follow-up appointment to review the results. Evaluations may take up to 4-6 weeks from the time of request.

    1. Yes. Begin by logging-in to your myWestHills portal and click class search.  You will be able to find scheduled classes and register for classes.
