Apply to Westmont First-Year Students
Steps to Apply
Request official transcripts of all high school and college (if dual-enrolled) work to be submitted directly from school officials. If filing the Common Application, the request may be processed online through that application process.
Westmont requires one academic reference from a teacher in a major subject (i.e. English, Science, History, Math, etc.). In addition, an optional pastoral/character reference may be submitted. The reference forms may be accessed within either application.
The Office of Admissions recommends campus visits and interviews. Scheduling an appointment with your admissions counselor to discuss your plan is encouraged, especially as you prepare to take the next step in your education.

First year applicants are required to have a minimum of 14 academic units of credit to include:
|science||3 years (two years of laboratory science)|
|MATHEMATICS||3 years (including at least second-year algebra)|
|Foreign Language||2 years of one language (three years recommended)|

AP and IB Credit
