Opportunities on Campus
Westmont is committed to offering opportunities to celebrate students’ culture as well as learning about the diversity of others. All students are invited to participate in the Intercultural Organizations on campus. Activities include workshops, concerts, dinners, desserts, and a chance to attend the National Intercultural Student Leadership Conference.
All documents, including high school and college transcripts, must be translated into English and evaluated by an approved credential evaluation service before being sent to the Office of Admission. You can contact any credential evaluator approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluators (NACES). For additional information about credential evaluation services and listings, visit: Credential Evaluation Services.
The strength of the high-school equivalent program, the record of academic aptitude demonstrated by SAT, ACT, or TOEFL results (560 paper-based, 220 computer-based or 83 Internet-based) are important in determining admission.
Non-US citizens accepted for admission need a Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant Student Form (I-20) to apply for the F-1 Visa (Student Visa). An I-20 is issued to accepted students once the college has received their confirmation deposits.
International students may receive up to $15,000 in merit-based scholarship aid. Applicants are also eligible to apply for departmental aid: athletic (based on coach’s assessment), music, art, theatre, and cultural diversity. International students are not eligible for U.S. government grants or loans. However, students may work on campus.
