Admissions & Aid Transfer Scholarships
Generous academic scholarships set the foundation of our financial aid program and are awarded to students who show exceptional promise for success at Westmont. Typically, incoming transfer students are awarded academic scholarship on the basis of their previous college work. A minimum 3.0 GPA in college-level work is required to qualify.
These amounts do not include any need-based aid you may receive on the basis of your FAFSA or talent-based awards such as athletics and music scholarships. Need- and talent-based awards can stack on top of academic scholarships!
Westmont bases admission decisions on all the information applicants submit, including essays, references, community service and leadership experience. Meeting scholarship criteria based on GPA does not guarantee acceptance.

|The Ruth Kerr Scholarship||Named for our founder, the Ruth Kerr Scholarship offers eligible transfer students $12,000 per year and is renewable with a minimum 3.0 GPA.|
|The Founder's Scholarship||Honoring the vision of many faithful men and women who helped Westmont become a premier Christian liberal arts college, this $9,000 annual award for transfer students is renewable with a minimum 2.75 GPA.|
Talent scholarships are available in athletics, art, theatre and music. Applicants interested in these programs should contact the respective academic department or athletic coach for more information. Athletes are encouraged to visit the athletics website and submit a "Recruit Me" form, found here.
