About the Company

West Coast University (WCU) is a private, for-profit university focused on healthcare degrees.

David Pyle founded American Career College in 1979 under the name of American College of Optics. Originally the school focused only on optical dispensing. In May 1997, Mr. Pyle purchased West Coast University, which was founded in 1909, out of bankruptcy and developed a program for the training of registered nurses.
