A Message from the Dean of Admission
Welcome to Westmont College. We are pleased that you are beginning the process of applying for admission. We recognize this can be both an exciting and daunting time as you and your family discern the right place to spend the next few years. Please know we are here to assist you through this process and answer any questions you may have.
Whether you are a first year or a transfer student, Westmont College will provide you with a dynamic and vibrant community where you will be stretched intellectually and spiritually. Faculty and students obviously play a critical role in this endeavor. Therefore, we seek new students who strive to deepen their faith, explore their world beyond the classroom, and make rich and fruitful connections between the two.
Through the admissions process we pay close attention to a candidate's strengths, motivations and passions. While your academic record and standarized test scores are very important, we desire to see how you reveal your character, values, personal integrity and social concern through involvement in school, neighborhood and church communities.
Additionally, it is important that you possess an understanding of Westmont College's Christian Mission. Please be sure to take the time to share with us your vision and hope for how you will not only benefit from a Westmont education, but also contribute to this community of scholars and learners.
Blessings on you and your family as you continue.
Dean of Admission
