Additional Benefits



Be a part of a cohort where you will get to know your fellow WEST scholars by taking classes side by side and network through your academic and extracurricular activities. Together, experience a lot more success and FUN!

Priority Enrollment

Getting into courses can be tricky as a student. Avoid the anxiety that comes from waiting for course registration and the risk of your class being full. WEST scholars will have course advising and early registration. 

Faculty Mentor

Each WEST scholar will have a dedicated faculty mentor that will advise on courses, registration, and managing classwork. One-on-one attention will give West Scholars the assurance that they are on track for graduation and career or grad school placement. 

STEM Seminars 

WEST scholars participate in a weekly seminar course designed to support students in many aspects related to college including campus resources, research experiences, leadership opportunities, and career development.
