Application Requirements

Westminster College enrolls students based on their potential for success. Although we encourage students to take challenging classes, we do not have specific required courses for enrollment. If students meet their high school requirements we will consider them for admission to Westminster College.

What to Submit

  • Application for admission
  • Unofficial High School Transcripts (official transcripts with official school seal, Parchment, National Student Clearing House or eScrip-Safe will be requested upon completion of high school)
  • Official ACT or SAT score (we accept either and will take the highest score) OR personal essay

At Westminster, your success is recognized. Your academic achievements—measured by difficulty of course work, grades, and entrance exams (ACT or SAT) along with recommendations and extracurricular activities—indicate your future success at Westminster and beyond.

When you apply and are admitted to Westminster College, you are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. This includes international students. Students in the Bachelor of Business Administration and RN-to-BS in Nursing programs are not eligible for Westminster merit scholarships due to the already discounted tuition rate.
