    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. Grants and loans are available through our Financial Aid Office.  Scholarships are available at West Hills Community College. Fee waivers and book vouchers are also available for all students who qualify. West Hills Colleges also has work-study available for eligible students.
