The Outreach team at West Valley College serves prospective students and existing students by introducing them to information and resources that will help improve their college experience and help eliminate obstacles to educational opportunity. We share information on college planning, admission requirements, degree and certificate programs, guaranteed transfer programs, financial aid, campus life, student services, and much more. Campus tours and high school visits are arranged through the Outreach Office.
After participating in outreach services and/or activities, a prospective student will be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge about the California systems of higher education and independent colleges and universities, including admissions requirements, transfer agreements, costs, scholarships and financial aid, and student support services;
- Demonstrate knowledge about the community college system and determine which community college meets his or her academic goal;
- Identify the benefits of higher education and evaluate the appropriateness of each educational option.
