Admission Requirements

Currently Calwest University only offers Graduate and Doctoral Programs

As Calwest University is an exempt institution pursuant to Section 94874 (b) of the California Education Code; Title 5; it only offers educational programs sponsored by a bona fide professional organization, solely for that organization's membership; and under Section 94874 (d) (2) (c) offers continuing education that is approved, certified, or sponsored by a bona fide professional organization. As such, Calwest will currently admit only members of a bona-fide professional organization to the MBA and DBA programs
