Committed To Making Education Manageable
We believe in accessible, affordable higher education.
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.

It starts with transparency. The cost for undergraduate tuition is $250/credit hour, and graduate tuition is $350/credit hour. (Active military students pay $250/credit hour for both graduate and undergraduate tuition.) This includes all eBooks and course materials, and there are no additional fees.
That means you can earn a degree at West for about half the cost of many other 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 course. Complete financial information and information about federal financial aid can be found in our Consumer Information Guide or visit www.studentaid.gov 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 introductory course on a trial basis without financial risk. Students will not be eligible for Title IV, HEA program financial aid funds until they are admitted as a regular degree-seeking student after the introductory course is successfully completed. Once admitted as a regular student, students become eligible for Title IV, HEA program financial aid funds starting with the beginning of the payment or loan period, as applicable, to include the introductory course tuition.

Sign up for your introductory course risk-free, 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 West is a good fit for you—and vice versa—before you've fully committed. Plus, you'll have earned 3 credits*** in the time it would ordinarily take just to apply and be admitted to many colleges!
