On this website you can create an account and then choose classes you have taken through JWCC DUAL CREDIT classes at Western.
You can then see how these credits will transfer to the University or College of your choice.

New 2016 Graduates Requirements
This is my favorite site for helping students see how their performance in high school has readied them for college.
They add different colleges to their dashboard along with their grades from high school to see if they are on track to go to that college, how much money they can be expected to pay, and scholarship that may be available to them. Best of all it is completely free. I plan to start using this with all college bound kids in the sping of the 2013-2014 school year!http://www.overgrad.com
This website is great for students wanting to explore colleges. This school will take your grades from high school, GPA and ACT score and tell you which colleges you are on track for. You add colleges and universities that you are interested in it will tell you what you need to work on to go to that college or universities. Most current students have registered and signed in. If you need an access code, please contact me.
