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 plan to offer 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, schedule an online student-led tour and interview with a member of the Admissions team. Do not hesitate to let us know how we can be of assistance as you explore your options for continuing your education. Please rest assured that during the course of the admissions process, we will continually look for opportunities to connect both online and, as health conditions permit, in person.

In addition to the events listed below, stay tuned for a deeper dive into the Westminster experience and completing applications in the coming months!
