There are many reasons why people should never attend Westwood College. In a nutshell it's a $70,000 bachelors degree done entirely online from a nationally accredited school. Regionally accredited is the way to go and this school is no where near to becoming regionally accredited. They are currently in the process and in 3-4 years when they get their results of this attempt to become regionally accredited, I do not see them getting this type of accreditation.
I am a former employee and a former student of WOL. I can tell you that employers do not scramble to find Westwood students. The education is very watered down and the instructors mostly just don't care. There are a few exceptions of course. But for the most part, the instructors will still give you full credit even if you just turn something in with very little effort done on the assignment. I had a 3.75 GPA in my 6 terms there. Sounds like I'm a pretty good student right? Well, I feel I did not earn a 3.75. I am an average student at best and if I attended a better college, I'm sure I would have seen grades that reflected my real abilities as a student.
Don't even get me started on Financial Aid. Because they are nationally accredited, students are very limited on exactly how much FA they can receive. This is horrible because most of the students who attend Westwood can barely pay their own bills and need to pay their tuition out of pocket! Don't let an advisor trick you into believing the $150/month and how easy it is. It is possible but you must go through a TON of red tape and qualify to even be remotely considered for $150/month.
All in all Westwood is not a school to attend. There are several other colleges out there that are regionally accredited, available online, and don't charge as much for tuition. I would strongly recommend DeVry to anyone, and also Colorado Technical University. Oh, and NOT University of Phoenix! That dump is worse than Westwood! Can anyone say "Corporate name at the Arizona Cardinals Football stadium??"
