How to Apply

Applicants will have their application files reviewed individually to ascertain the fit between prior educational accomplishments and established academic expectations at Webster.

Typical Webster Student Profile: Applicants most likely to be accepted will have a cumulative grade-point average of a "B," rank in the top half of their graduating class, and score a 21 or higher on the ACT or a 1000 or higher on the SAT (composite score of critical reading and math). The University believes that success in prior academic work is the best foundation to ensure academic success at Webster.



Pre-College Work: Freshmen are admitted to the University following the successful completion of a twelve-year American high school program or its international equivalent as recognized by Webster.  Webster awards credit for AP, CLEP, and IB exams. More information about these and other external exams for college credit is available on the Credit by Exam webpage.

Credits and Degrees: The typical length of full-time undergraduate study at the University is four years. Successful completion culminates in the award of a baccalaureate (bachelor's) degree. Students previously enrolled at another accredited university may be eligible for transfer credit and complete the program in fewer than four years.

Non-Native Students: Students whose native or predominant language is not English may need additional English proficiency that requires them to enroll in English as a Second Language (ESL). Webster offers intermediate and/or advanced ESL courses at the St. Louis, Geneva, Leiden, Hua Hin/Cha-am, and Vienna campuses. These courses are designated as university level and may count toward degree requirements.

Transfer Students: Advanced standing may be awarded to transfer students whose prior academic work was completed at a regionally accredited American university or an equivalent international university as recognized by Webster.
