What is the Office of Academic Services
Western accepts a limited number of students through the Office of Academic Services (OAS) program who show academic potential based on several different criteria, but who do not meet regular admission standards.
Philosophy of the Office of Academic Services
The Office of Academic Services (OAS) is committed to offering deserving students who show academic potential, but who do not meet regular admission requirements, the opportunity to participate in higher education. Advisors within the program not only serve as mentors and advocates but also offer students encouragement and join with them in celebrating their many successes.
