Western International University Has Closed

From 1978 through February 2019, Western International University (West) was a university headquartered in Tempe, Arizona that was regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). For information on accreditation, please access the HLC web site.

On March 9, 2017, the Board of Western International University approved the recommendation to cease enrolling new students, develop a teach-out plan for current students and, ultimately, to close the university once the teach-out plan has been approved by the Higher Learning Commission and the Arizona Board for Private Postsecondary Education and carried out. The teach-out lasted through February 2019 to allow students an opportunity to graduate from West or transfer to another institution. West subsequently resigned accreditation from the HLC in February 2019.
