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!

Virtual Visits

Now is a great time to schedule your Virtual Visit! Our Virtual Visits include a live, online student-led tour opportunity, a student-led video tour and a personal interview with one of our Admissions Officers.  
 
Touring may look a little different at the moment, but the opportunity to get to know Westminster through the eyes of a student remains the same. Our Black & Gold tour guides are back in action and can’t wait to connect! Tours are offered regularly Monday through Friday at 4 p.m. with additional offerings based on availability.  
 
Interviews are offered via Zoom, Monday through Saturday. Booking early not only means a greater likelihood of getting your desired appointment time and less stress as you are trying to complete applications but also more opportunities to make meaningful connections with our community.
 
To schedule your Virtual Visit, call the Admissions Office at (860) 408-3060 at your earliest convenience.
