Welcome To Western Online

WesternOnline delivers fully-accredited, high-quality online classes to students looking for convenience and flexibility in a learning environment specific to their needs.

Interactive Term-Based and Self-Paced online courses offer students options to support their success at Western, whether pursuing a degree, certificate or taking elective courses.

The purpose of WesternOnline is to foster independent thought and learning, placing most of the responsibility for learning on the student. While this may seem at first to be a daunting experience, it is actually very rewarding because learning on your own is what most of life is about.
