The Admission Process

You can become a Westmoreland student in a few easy steps. See them HERE.

Students with a GED

High school graduates or those who hold a GED high school equivalency are granted admission to the college. Individuals 18 years of age and older who have not earned a high school diploma or a GED are admitted to the college if they can demonstrate their ability to benefit from the college experience. After successfully completing 30 credits at Westmoreland, they may be eligible to petition for a Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma. Forms for Commonwealth Secondary School Diplomas are available at the Department of Education, GED, Harrisburg.


Former students who wish to return after a lapse of two years must submit a new Application for Admission. A re-entering student who has attended another institution since leaving Westmoreland must request that an official transcript from each school be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar.

A student who interrupts residence for two or more years must meet the graduation requirements at the time of readmission and may not be readmitted to a degree, major and/or minor that is no longer active.

International students

International students must submit official English translated academic credentials, TOEFL scores of 61 or higher (TOEFLiBT), a statement of financial support for the entire period of enrollment, and provide documentation of immigration status.

Full-time and Part-time Students

Full-time students register for 12 or more credits a semester; part-time students register for fewer than 12 credits a semester.

Since many programs and courses fill to capacity well before the beginning of each semester, early inquiry is advised.
