The information below applies to the 2015-2016 academic year. Charges and financial policies are subject to annual change by the board of trustees.

2015-2016 costs for a student living off campus

The cost of attendance for students who are approved to live in non-Westmont-run housing (not including living with parents/family members) includes allowances toward housing and other living expenses.  These are not intended to reflect actual costs that a student may incur, only an allowance toward those costs.  Since total financial aid is limited to the total cost of attendance, students should carefully consider their own costs and their ability to supplement financial aid, if necessary, to cover any additional costs that may arise.
