West Los Angeles College Reviews

Majority of my professors have been extremely helpful with my success in their classes, always being available for office hours to answer questions and taking time to clarify any material from lecture has been very beneficial. All of the workshops and presentations I have ever been to on campus were very useful for several areas of life that I can take with me and use for years to come. However, there has often been a shortage of staff in the student services building, making processing times for important documentation exceedingly long and getting an appointment for general advising nearly impossible. I have had to retake multiple tests as a disabilities student because they were never delivered back to my professor. Nevertheless I have recently joined the Trio SSS program where I look forward to getting plenty of help and advising to be able to transfer next fall. Although my experience in the classroom has been decent, the student support outside the class has not been as great.

When looking for whatever classes I need to take, I always check to see if it is available at WLAC first because it is conveniently located with consistently reliable parking and excellent instructors. All the other students that I have talked to at West agree that WLAC is an excellent school. Every teacher that I have had here has been outstanding in the variety of subjects from sociology, chemistry, psychology, biology, math, statistics, and throughout the dental hygiene program. I have found that they truly want to help the students to succeed and move forward in their lives on toward their educational goals for their overall life enhancement. The campus police are friendly and professional. Go West, Go Far!
I enjoy attending WLAC. It is a beautiful campus and most of the professors are nice and helpful. If you apply and can become a member of TRIO SSS you will have access to one-on=one tutoring, computers/ printers, and academic counseling. It the best program at West!
