Resources for International Transfer Students

Transfer Credit for New International Freshmen

Undergraduate international students may request a review of transfer credit courses completed in college-level programs.  For new students, submit official transcripts from each institution or testing agency directly to the International Recruitment and Services office as an admission requirement.

An academic advisor can provide you with an estimate of how your transfer credit may apply towards degree requirements at Webster University.

The Office of the Registrar notifies students of an official transfer credit award upon receipt and review of all transcripts and upon full admission to the university.

Off Campus Study Request:  Currently enrolled undergraduate students may request permission to take classes at another school or college and transfer courses to Webster University, subject to current transfer credit policy and residency requirements.

Transfer Credit for New International Graduate Students

You must apply for admission or already be accepted to a graduate program in order for us to evaluate transcripts for transfer credit. 

To find out if your transfer credits may apply to your Webster degree, contact an advisor at your local Webster campus. If you are not close to a Webster campus, contact the Academic Advising Center or the advisor who assisted you during your initial advising session. Please provide the course numbers, course titles, number of credits and where completed. If you are asking for transferred courses to be accepted in place of a course required for the degree, we will need the course description and syllabus for the course(s) in question. Unofficial transcripts sent as attachments to an appropriate advisor are useful when requesting a preliminary transfer credit evaluation. 

All transfer credit evaluations are estimates until official transcripts are received to the appropriate campus. Students working with the home campus should have official transcripts for academic courses, or official documentation for military or corporate classes, sent to: Julie Altmann, Academic Advising Center, Webster University, 568 Garden Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63119-3248.
