Committed To Making Education Manageable


A college education should be available to every student willing to work toward his or her degree – regardless of time and financial resources. At Western International University® (West), we strive to provide a more affordable, more manageable way for all working adults to earn a quality university degree.

Bachelor Degree

Remaining 123 credits, $250/credit hour

total = 126 credits, $30,950

Master Degree

Remaining 36 credits, $350/credit hour

total = 39 credits, $12,800

It starts with transparency. After you complete your introductory course (three credits) for $200, the cost for undergraduate tuition is $250/credit hour and graduate tuition is $350/credit hour. This includes all eBooks and course materials, and there are no additional fees. That means your West degree is about half the cost of many other accredited universities. Our Tuition Comparison Guide compares the cost of a degree at West with some of the other institutions you may be considering.




There are many ways to help reduce your overall costs (as well as accelerate your learning), and we want to be sure you take full advantage. To learn more about transferable college credits, possible credits from Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) for certifications or licenses, military training credits and more, visit Earned & Learned Credit. Also, be sure to check with your employer for details on how to use any tuition reimbursement benefits they may offer.

Financial aid is available for those who qualify. You will receive information about official admission to West, transfer of college credit, and payment options for future course tuition while you are completing your introductory courses. Complete financial information and information about federal financial aid can be found in our Consumer Information Guide. or visit for information about federal financial aid.

As part of a student’s admission to the University, West provides the opportunity for students to attend the first course without financial risk. While tuition charges will be recorded on the student’s account, payment in full is only due upon course completion and is required only for grade and credit issuance or if the student continues enrollment in a West degree or certificate program.

If a student successfully completes the first course, is admitted to the program, and continues beyond the first course, the student’s Federal Student Aid may be used to pay for program-related tuition charges from the beginning of the first course. However, if the student does not successfully complete the first course or decides not to continue enrollment in the degree or certificate program, the student is ineligible for Federal Student Aid.

Sign up for your introductory course for $200, so you can see what West's courses are like. As you progress through your introductory course, we'll help you apply for full admission*, evaluate your previous college credits for potential transfer, explore PLA for your non-college learning experiences, and select your financial options. This way, you'll find out if school is right for you—and vice versa—before you've fully committed. Plus, you'll have earned three credits** in the time it would ordinarily take just to apply to college!
