Help ensure safety on campus -- If you see something, say something

As a part of the West Hills College Lemoore family you know we share everyday moments together.  It's easy to take for granted the routine moments in our every day—going to school, getting a bite to eat, studying in our Library, or just laughing and hanging out with friends.  But your every day is different than your friends and classmates lives—filled with the moments that make it uniquely yours. So if you see something you know shouldn't be there—or someone's behavior doesn't seem quite right—say something. Because you know what's supposed to be in your everyday.

Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our campus safe. Help keep our campus safe -- if you see something, say something! 

To report suspicious activity, contact your local law enforcement agency. Describe specifically what you observed, including:

·         Who or what you saw;

·         When you saw it;

·         Where it occurred; and

·         Why it's suspicious.

If there is an emergency, call 9–1–1

For non-emergencies in Lemoore, call the Lemoore Police Department:(559) 924-5333 or our Campus Police Officer: (559) 469-4080

​For non-emergencies in Coalinga, call the Coalinga Police Department at (559) ​​935- 2313 or our Campus Police Officer: (559) 935-2202. ​

​For non-emergencies in Firebaugh, call the Firebaugh Police Department at (559) 659-5909

Financial Aid Research Study

Financial Aid Research Study

West Hills College is working with a research organization called MDRC to learn how financial aid can best assist students with managing their finances and succeeding in college.  As part of this study, West Hills College will share your student records data with MDRC beginning in the 2016-17 academic year.  These data include personal identifiers, such as name and contact information, enrollment, credits attempted and completed, grades, and financial aid awarded and disbursed. Information that MDRC collects for the study will be kept confidential and will be used for research purposes only.  If you have questions about the study, or you don't want to be contacted or your data to be shared, please email ALAP@mdrc.org and include your student ID number.
