Undergraduate transfer students can apply for federal, state, and institutional aid programs by completing a FAFSA. Check out information on loans, scholarships, and work study programs for the best options for you. If you are transferring to Westminster College starting fall semester, you will need to complete a FAFSA or a Renewal FAFSA if you received one in the mail and send it to the Department of Education. Students who are transferring to Westminster starting spring or summer semester and have already completed a FAFSA will need to make sure that Westminster College is listed on their Student Aid Report. If not, call our Financial Aid Office at (801) 832-2500 and we can electronically add Westminster to your financial aid application.
