CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ADMISSION TO CALIFORNIA WESTERN!

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Given the evolving landscape we find ourselves in as a result of the coronavirus and its impact on every part of our lives, we strive to remain flexible and supportive of all of our admitted students. We want to assure you that California Western admissions remains operational and interactive on the web.

In keeping with health recommendations, we have cancelled our on-campus admitted student activities and temporarily suspended individual campus visits. However, we encourage you to visit our virtual preview page, which contains videos and other virtual materials that we believe will give you valuable insight into being a student at California Western.

As you may know, the State of California and local authorities have prohibited institutions of higher education from opening. These orders are still in place. While we hope these orders will be lifted by the start of the Fall 2020 term, we do not know if that will happen. Assuming that these orders are lifted and institutions of higher education can reopen safely according to evolving best practices, we are planning that some Fall 2020 classes for entering students will be taught in person and some will be taught online. Students will also have the option to attend entirely online. As more details about fall become available, we will share them with you.
