Admissions

Events

Westminster was excited to welcome students back to campus this fall. With great regret, however, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we are unable to host visitors on campus at this time. In the absence of campus visits, we will be offering as many online opportunities for prospective students and families to learn about Westminster and engage with members of our community as possible. We hope that you will join us for one or more of the online events outlined below, and schedule an online student-led tour and interview with a member of the Admissions team. Please rest assured we will continually look for opportunities to connect both online and, as health conditions permit, in person. Do not hesitate to let us know how we can be of assistance as you explore your options for continuing your education.  

In addition to the events listed below, check back for more opportunities to connect in the coming weeks!
