    Hands-on learners and for those who want to succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Read the chapters before going to class. Do not skip classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition rate is $15,000 per year without the cost of books. Pell Grant covers approx $5,500 max, Federal loan covers approx $6,500-$8,500, then the remaining balance is to be paid out of pocket or private loans. Reason why I NEED scholarships.

    Am enjoying being here

    Class sizes are average or relatively small, which is exactly what I want. Homework and other assignments are not too dificult, as long as one reads the chapters before going to class. Students are relatively friendly.

    Am learning a lot

    Professors have been in specific criminal justice career field for over 10 years and know what they teach. One of my professors was an intelligence officer for 15+ years and others are police officers and part-time lawyers.

    students who can manage time wisely. students who like a small class size. students who are independent (like to work alone.) students who are dedicated and have a lot of motivation to succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    stay on top of your work. do not fall behind or you will not be able to catch up. read all chapter material assigned, as you never know what will be on the quizzes, finals, or other assignments. be organized, dedicated, and set time aside to study each day.

    Bang for the buck

    while this school is for-profit, and the credits do not transfer, you do get a good education. financial aid is available.

    Am enjoying being here

    The majority of the instructors I have had are terrific. They are knowledgeable in their field and provide access to information that will help you enhance your learning potential.

    Academic Rigor

    westwood college offers hands-on labs, webinars, lectures, and tons of discussions from fellow classmates and the instructor.

    It's good for students that just want to pay for a degree but not learn much.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't go here.

    Bang for the buck

    Way too expensive.

    Did enjoy being here

    The environment was pleasant. The students and faculty are friendly.

    Did learn a lot

    Teachers barely even taught. I spent many classes just sitting there chatting with my fellow students. Also the books were a waste of money since no teacher except for a select few (namely the program directors) ever even opened the book or gave us assignments in them.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not apply, run away as fast as you can!

    Did learn a lot

    Institution of higher learning my A$$. I am at my wit's end with this degree mill. They lied to me in every way, shape and form. Ben my admission counselor (Salesman) stated credits would be transferable, now they post on the website they are not transferable. Degree can be used to obtain a better position or higher paying job. Now they state is only gives you the tools to succeed..lies, lies, lies... Even the Dean, School of Technology of WOL who I met lies to me about future accreditation. Where does it end? Westwood has voluntarily dropped from Regional Candidacy. As I work a second job (nights and weekends) trying to pay for this now $80,000 education that is worthless, trying to stay afloat of this financial h**l that this college create, my anger grows. So what did I learn that cost me $80,000 and nothing but grief, financial insecurity and embarrassment? That For-Profit schools like Westwood are out to make money off the backs of those who want to succeed and have dreams by lying and making false promises. They are in it only for the money and will not supply you with an education that will allow you to enter the job market. You will be placed so far into debt that no matter what job you apply for, you will not be able to realistically pay it off timely and if you do get a degree from them, it is better used as toilet paper. I was duped and feel like I’ve been made a fool by attending this joke of a college. Yes, I am trying to pay off this bogus debt. I have been in the IT business for over 20 years, hold certifications in Cisco, Microsoft and database administration, all obtained prior to Westwood. Here's how great they are, of those that graduated from Westwood with me, here is a list of their current positions as of today: Manager KFC, Walmart Clerk, Homeless and Unemployed, Clerk 7-11, Student (went to a real college to start over) Now the have a placement guarantee that is really not a guarantee. See the other posts to see how it works. It's your money that they are giving back to you if they cannot help you find a job. You are still paying for it and once the six months are up, you are still saddled with outrageous school loans. No one who graduated with me was able to work in their field of study and failed to keep their promise of job assistance. Westwood college (joke) needs to be shut down. Westwood ruined my credit, finances and future dreams. I am amazed at the amount of fraud,deceit and lies from this degree mill. Online research has provided me with some interesting information. On 04/20/2011 the BBB accreditation wassuspended due to recent government action concerning the marketplaceand its customers that demonstrates a significant failure of thecompany to support the principles and purposes of BBB accreditation. The matter will be reviewed by the BBB's Board of Directors at its next meeting. On December 14, 2010 the Colorado Commission of Higher Education (CCHE) changed Westwood College's status from Full Authorization to Probationary Authorization due to it's probation order from the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges. The Department of Veterans Affairs has pulled GI Bill funding from all three Texas campuses of a for-profit college accused of misleading advertising and enrollment practices. At the December 2, 2010 regular CCHE meeting, Commissioners voted to defer action for Westwood College until staff had received notification from the Accrediting Commission for Career Colleges and Schools. Department staff received a Continued Probation Order from the ACCSC on December 9, 2010. The ACCSC reviewed the September 1, 2010 Probation Order and the school's response to that action at its November 2010 meeting. It was determined that the school has not demonstrated compliance with the ACCSC's requirements relative to student achievement outcomes. Additionally, Westwood College was requested to provide information with regard to compliance to several and various state agencies and other accreditors given the allegations of the Government Accountability Office August 4, 2010 report. On April 6, 2009 the United States of America (on behalf of the United States Board of Education) filed an Amended Complaint in the United State District Court of the Northern District of Texas. Charges filed indicate the business was in violation of state law prohibiting a failure to comply with Statutory and Regulatory Requirements for Proprietary School Operations. Particularly, some charges related to unethical and/or misleading recruitment practices, failure to report unsatisfactory job placement rates for graduates, and/or failure to properly register school representatives. The matter was resolved by a settlement in March 2009. In 2009, Westwood's parent company, Alta Colleges Inc., of Denver, agreed to pay the U.S. government $7 million to settle a lawsuit accusing the Texas campuses of submitting falsified federal student aid forms. Wow....and they have the nerve to tell me they are transparent?

    Students who like everything Technical from Nursing to Networking.

    Bang for the buck

    It is definitely worth the money, I have the opportunity to recieve my Bachelors in only 3 years.

    What to do for fun

    EVERYTHING. Being a student going for my Bachelors in Cisco Network Administration, Westwood offers many Network and Computer rooms to utilize in your own time. What could be more fun? Networking and Computers are my passion.

    Food and Dining

    The dining area at Westwood has a large variety of healthy food choices.

    Dorm Life

    Westwood is more of a vocational college and does not offer dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Westwood is a very organized school when it comes to the Curriculum. Unlike other schools they push and expect you to graduate and receive your degree much quicker than traditional schools. Some may feel rushed, yet I feel motivated by this. They also hold a higher graduation rate because they do push their students and use mostly hands-on educating.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for all of the grants and scholarships you possibly can. Be as honest as possible with your Admissions Representative. Study a little on your basic math, reading and arithmetic skills before taking your aptitude test.

    In three sentences

    Westwood is a very hands-on school. The instructors and Staff are very helpful, motivating and Knowledgeable. I believe these are the reasons I will be successful at this school.

    Make sure you check your email, and assingments regularly, things come up and your teacher may not be able to help you right away with a question. If you do have questions you can also ask your classmates.

    In three sentences

    I like the Online classes because you can go to school on your own time. I also like the teachers, they are very helpful when you have a question. If there were a scale from 1-10 I would rate westwood a 9.
