Westmont requires that applicants have a minimum GPA of 2.3 and have completed at least one year of college coursework (unless otherwise noted) to be eligible for participation in any program.  Some programs require an even higher GPA to apply. Though not encouraged, students hoping to participate in off-campus programs in consecutive semesters must seek approval from the Academic Senate by submitting a petition form, available in the Records Office.

Students who have completed 59 units toward their degree, prior to the semester in which they will be participating in an Off-Campus Program, MUST have an approved Application for Degree on file in the Student Records Office. Final acceptance to an Off-Campus Program will not be granted until the Off-Campus Programs Office has received a release from the Student Records Office.
