Transfer Admissions

Make your next move your best move

Our transfer students come from all over—from community colleges, large public universities, and small private colleges from all over the country and right here in Salt Lake City. About 30 percent of our entering new undergraduates are transfers, so you won't be the only one. You'll be part of a big group right from the start!

Because we have so many transfers, we are experts at helping you to make a smooth transition. We will work with you individually to evaluate your transcript(s) and quickly determine the maximum number of credits you can apply toward your Westminster degree program.

Transfer Scholarships

We’re providing additional achievement based scholarships to all in-state and out-of-state transfer students who enroll in Westminster for Fall 2017.

Frequently Asked Questions

The best thing you can do in order to find out what classes will transfer is to come in and meet with an Admissions Counselor. We are more than happy to do an unofficial evaluation of your transcripts. We'll even evaluate your transcripts before you apply to Westminster.

We're here to help you pick up where you left off so you can graduate on-time. Every student is teamed up with an academic advisor, so you can get registered for the right classes right away.

A maximum of 72 semester hours of credit completed with a grade of C- or better from two-year schools can be accepted for academic course work. A maximum of 88 credit hours transferred from all collegiate institutions (two-year and four-year) attended may be applied toward meeting the total number of hours required for graduation.

Westminster College will award transfer credit for course work that meets the following criteria

  • The transfer institution is regionally accredited
  • The course work is non-remedial and taken in general academic areas that are part of the Westminster curriculum
  • The credit awarded is for course work with grades of C- or better

Once you have completed an application to the college and have been accepted, our registrars office will do a thorough evaluation of all of your college transcripts and give you a course by course breakdown of what credits we accept.

We will then have you meet with an academic advisor who will help you figure out what classes you need to take.

We do not have an application deadline. However, in order to get the classes you want, and to have a financial aid package put together we recommend applying at least two months prior to the start of the semester you want to enroll.
