How to Apply


In addition to the application itself you will need to do the following:

  • Send an official transcript of your work from all secondary schools and/or college you have attended. These transcripts must be sent directly from the institutions concerned.
  • SAT/ACT examinations are required. Have the results of these examinations sent to the Admissions Office.
  • Send two letters of recommendation.
  • Although not required, candidates for admission are encouraged to arrange an on-campus interview. Please contact the Admission office in advance for an appointment at (724) 946-7100.

FAFSA Application

You will be considered for merit-based scholarships as your admissions application is reviewed. For additional financial aid consideration, it is to your advantage to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) as early as possible.

You can apply for undergraduate admission to Westminster College in the following ways:

Early Decision

If your first choice is Westminster, you are encouraged to apply Early Decision and make your senior year of high school stress-free. Early Decision allows you early access to figure out your financial aid package, housing, roommate and class schedule, easing your transition into a great first year of college. Early Decision plans are binding — a student who is accepted must attend Westminster and withdraw applications to other colleges.

Early Action

If you want an early answer on your application status but need more time before committing to Westminster, apply Early Action. Early Action plans are nonbinding — students receive an early response to their application but do not have to commit to the college until the normal reply date.

Rolling Admission

Rolling Admission begins December 1st with notification as soon as the application materials are received and reviewed. A $200 deposit is due by May 1st. Students who apply after March 1st will be admitted based on space availability in the new first-year class.
