Innovators in Adult Education

In 1978, West was born in response to a huge, unmet need in the United States: Quality post-secondary education for adults.


For more than 35 years, we’ve been educating working adults. Earning a degree at West is a mark of achievement. Our professors are highly educated, highly experienced, and highly respected—by both students and peers.


Our curriculum is designed to fit your schedule.

West’s 8-week courses begin every month. Coursework and assignments are structured to help balance the workload over the 8-week term, so you can manage your schedule. You complete your weekly coursework and assignments when you can, in the time increments that work best for you.

We understand working adults so well, we built a university just for you.

We’ve streamlined our programs, aligning them directly with fast-growing career fields: Accounting, Business, Information Technology, and Behavioral Science. 

Start Pursuing Your Degree

We’ve improved our course delivery model, making it not just more manageable, but more affordable for people to achieve their educational goals and help advance their careers.


At West, each course lasts 8 weeks, and courses begin monthly. Courses are structured to follow a weekly path of Learn, Practice, Apply – a teaching methodology to help students better absorb and utilize new information.
