Next Steps for Admitted Transfer Students


You've Been Accepted ~ What's Next?

Congratulations on your acceptance to Webster University!  We look forward to welcoming you to our campus community! On this page we have outlined important next steps and helpful campus connections to help you prepare for a successful transition to Webster.

Be sure to take these important steps to help ensure success at Webster!  See below for some helpful tips along the way.

Academic Advising & Registration

  • All new students to Webster will meet individually with a professional advisor for academic advising and initial course registration. 
  • Upcoming registration dates are published in the academic calendar for each term or semester. Transfer registration for fall typically begins in mid-April and transfer registration for spring in mid-November.
  • You are encouraged to attend a Transfer & Registration session or schedule an appointment in the advising center. You are invited to contact advising to schedule an appointment a month before registration opens.
  • Students pursuing a degree in Education or Nursing should contact those departments directly for advising and registration appointments.
  • Check out the transfer advising and orientation resources.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

  • Be sure to file the FAFSA to be considered for need-based financial aid. Webster's school code is 002521. Students should also complete the Webster financial aid application. Students will be mailed a financial aid award package once all requested documents have been received.
  • It is recommended to submit financial aid applications prior to February 1 for the upcoming academic year.
  • Check deadlines and eligibility for transfer scholarships.
  • Be reminded that if your circumstances change from what is reported on your financial aid application, your aid may be subject to change. Discuss with your financial aid counselor.

Housing & Residential Life

  • If you are interested in on-campus housing, we encourage you to apply early. Housing is available for transfer students, but space is limited. The housing application for the following academic year is usually available in late November.
  • All accepted students are sent an activation email for their Candidate account upon admission, which is what you will use to submit your online housing application. The same log-in credentials will be used for Webster Connections after you enroll for classes.

Connections & Office 365 Account

  • All Webster students will receive access to their Webster Connections, Office 365, and student email accounts upon enrollment.  Look for an activation email from IT services. 
  • Official communication from the University for many offices is conducted through your student email account, so please activate and check often.
  • Learn more about your University Connections & Office 365 accounts, Webster student email, and many other technology services offered through the IT Service Desk.
