Well-qualified newcomers now receive merit scholarships from Westmont automatically. Both first-year and transfer students earn these awards on the basis of their academic grade point averages and SAT or ACT scores. Recipients who maintain a specified minimum grade point average may renew their scholarships each year.
Under a new rolling policy, Westmont announces a decision about admission and financial aid awards as soon as an applicant submits a complete package to the college.
Westmont students continue to receive grants based on financial need, interest-free loans for graduates of California high schools, and all state and federal grants, loans, and work-study opportunities.
