Admissions

The essence of Westminster is personal relationships, meaningful discourse, nurtured growth, and intimate class sizes. Here, your professors will know more than your name, they'll know what drives you.

Students who do well at Westminster are those who are looking to get more out of life, who yearn for the freedom to explore, who accept the challenge to see the world through others’ eyes, and who believe that life isn’t about what the world holds for them, but what they can bring to the world.
