International Student Admissions
Western International University (West) welcomes students from around the world. International students are defined as those who are neither citizens nor permanent residents of the United States. West is authorized to accept and enroll qualified, degree-seeking, non-immigrant students (F-1 status) by the Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP). These students can receive additional support from the Designated School Official (DSO) to begin a different life within the United States.
Sessions begin monthly at West. Therefore, applications are accepted on a continuous basis. International applicants should begin the admission process well in advance of the desired enrollment date (at least 3 months is recommended). Students should plan on at least six (6) weeks between receipt of I-20 and beginning coursework in Tempe.
