FIRST YEAR AT
Located in the heart of Southern California between bustling Los Angeles and beautiful Orange County, Whittier is distinguished by its small size, pioneering faculty, and nationally recognized curriculum. Facilities rival those at large public institutions, but ours is an intimate setting where students and professors unite in an ongoing pursuit of knowledge.
Whittier College welcomes applications from international students as part of its commitment to creating and nurturing a diverse and global learning atmosphere. We encourage applications from students who wish to pursue an undergraduate education with the desire to learn in the interdisciplinary approach of a liberal arts curriculum.
Whittier provides an environment for transfer students to thrive. We pride ourselves on fostering a strong and supportive community in which transfer students are empowered to complete their undergraduate educations effectively.
