The Westmoreland advantage

Developmental courses to help you succeed

About three-quarters of the students who come to Westmoreland qualify for developmental courses. These courses in reading, writing and mathematics help to prepare students for success in their academic careers at Westmoreland and beyond! Students who actively participate in the developmental program are more likely to succeed and complete their course of study.

Work with faculty on a research project

For the past several years, Westmoreland students have been selected by the National Council on Undergraduate Research to present their research projects at the national conference. Students collaborate with faculty sponsors on the projects, which are also presented to the college community at an academic achievement banquet each year.
