If you apply for financial aid (we urge every student to apply), your actual cost to enroll at Westmont depends on your family’s financial need and your eligibility for merit- and talent-based scholarships. Westmont commits a significant amount of financial aid ($22.4 million) to scholarships and grants, making our high-quality education affordable to students from a wide range of economic backgrounds.

At Westmont, institutional gift aid represents 63 percent of all aid to students; the national figure is 19 percent. Only 22 percent of aid to Westmont students comes from federal loans compared to 37 percent nationally.

For the 2018-19 school year, first-year students with demonstrated need received an average award of $35,600.

More than 95% of first-year and transfer students receive an academic and/or talent-based scholarship.
