Admissions

Applications to the University are considered active for twelve (12) months from the date of submission of the Student Enrollment Agreement. During the pre-admission process, West reserves the right to cancel an individual’s admission request. Special consideration is given to applicants who are active service members or reservists called to active duty.

West begins all degree coursework with a required introductory course that applies toward the degree requirements for each program. This required introductory course is a three-credit course and credits may be eligible for transfer to other colleges and universities (please refer to Transfer of Credit section for more information on credit transfer eligibility). 


There are two types of admission statuses at West:

    • Provisionally Admitted (PV): Students who meet general admission eligibility criteria are initially admitted to their selected program with a PV status and an admission date that reflects the start date of the required introductory course. Student must complete the required introductory course and earn the requisite GPA in this course to be granted an unconditional, Admitted (AM) status. (See Undergraduate Degree Admission and Graduate Degree Admission sections of the Catalog).


    • Admitted (AM) Status: Students who meet general admission eligibility criteria and who earn the requisite GPA in the required introductory course (See Undergraduate Degree Admission and Graduate Degree Admission sections of the Catalog) are granted an Admitted (AM) Status.
