WCore is Westminster’s general education program. As part of your overall graduation requirements, WCore classes are designed to give you the opportunity to explore new subjects in hands-on, small-group settings.
First-year students at Westminster take classes called Learning Communities. These classes are interdisciplinary—linking two different classes together with a common theme—and are designed to hep you transition to college. Past classes have paired psychology and math, economics and philosophy, and anthropology and English, just to name a few.
Before you sign up for classes, you’ll need to pay a $250 admission deposit to secure your spot. You can pay your deposit online, over the phone, or by mail. If you have questions, call the Admission Office at 801.832.2200.
You can register for classes by scheduling a meeting with an academic advisor, either in person or over the phone. You can make an appointment by contacting the academic advising center at 801.832.2280.
You can also sign up for classes at a Griffin GearUp—a two-day experience for admitted first-year students where you’ll meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, learn more about tuition and financial aid, and get to know your future classmates.
Your academic advisor will help you explore your academic, professional, and personal interests to choose classes that are inspiring and exciting. They will also help you figure out how to fit all of your classes in to four years without stretching yourself too thin.
