Residency Policy

Advising About the Residency Policy

The residency policy changed in 2005. Students must adhere to the catalog that they formally declare as their governing catalog for all academic programs. For example, a student who starts school in 2012 and elects a program under the 2013 catalog must adhere to the residency policy for the 2013 catalog year.

The first question to ask when advising about the residency policy is “what is your governing catalog year”?

Undergraduate students earning baccalaureate degrees from Westminster must complete a minimum of 36 hours of coursework at the college. In addition, undergraduate students must complete in residence:

  • their last 36 hours of course work
  • at least 12 hours of upper division course work in any major 
  • at least 8 hours of course work in any minor
