"Our college is a real, accredited U.S. college where students can trust that their online degree will be a very valuable part of their future when they advance to a university or career," says Judy Chow, WLAC's Director of International Student Programs. "Students have come to our college from all over the world to complete the first two years of their Bachelor's degrees at a tremendous cost savings before transferring to a university. They also earn their Associate degrees which can qualify them for gainful employment in a number of industries. In this economic environment, our students say they feel secure in that we are a real, physical college ... not just online, and our esteemed professors care about results."

"West is also going a step further and looking to forge strong partnerships and ties with the countries from which their students come such as China, South Korea, Japan, India, Vietnam, Canada and many others. Over the next few months, we will be reaching out to education authorities, universities, and community based organizations to create strong learning opportunities for our students," Chow said.
