Everyone who would like to attend one of our Colleges must complete an admissions application.
After applying to one of our colleges you will be asked to have your official transcripts sent to us from any previous colleges or universities you have attended.
For more information, please see “I completed classes at another college. How do I receive credit for these courses at West Hills?”
No. If you are 18 or over, you do not need a high school diploma for admission to West Hills College.
If you are under age 18 or still in high school, you will need a special admission form which must be submitted (in person) to Student Services.
Please see our college admission pages for full details on how to apply to one of our colleges.
Variation: How do I start the admissions/registration process?

Should you run into any issues or have any questions feel free to contact us at any time.
The first step after applying to one of our colleges is to have your official transcripts sent to us from any previous colleges or universities you have attended.
Currently, West Hills 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 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.
