Interstate Passport
















West Los Angeles College

Culver City, California

 West Los Angeles College is an accredited California Community College offering paths to university transfer, career education and courses for professional and personal growth. It occupies 70 park-like acres overlooking Culver City, Marina Del Rey and Greater West Los Angeles. On a clear day you can see the Pacific Ocean from the highest points on campus,

Over the course of a year, West will serve between 16,000 to 19,000 students between our on-ground, online, and full-time and part-time students. But the college still retains the small, warm college feel as we have no more than about 5,000 students on campus at any one time.

Passport Block


The Passport Block listed here is for general information only.
Students must see the institution's website for access to its official block.

The Interstate Passport can be earned by passing with a grade of C or P or higher a minimum of 30 units in courses approved to meet the Interstate Passport learning outcomes for each of the nine knowledge and skills areas. A course may be used any number of times to meet the outcomes of any knowledge and skills area for which it is approved. As a result of this and variations in course unit values, the total number of courses required is likely to be at least nine or ten. Furthermore, because the knowledge and skills areas of the Interstate Passport align with those of the California State University General Education Breadth Pattern (CSUGE) and the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), the above requirements will have been met by any student who completes either the CSUGE or IGETC plan. Consult the college catalog for the most current requirements and other details.

Student Testimonials

""TRIO has helped me focus in on what classes I need to take to complete my degree here at WLAC. They have encouraged me to face me fears of taking a math class so to their tutoring and support. It was a tough semester and I could not have made it through without TRIO. Amazing support! I am very happy with the diligence of the leaders of the program." "
