Resources for Incoming Freshmen

Freshman Advising and Registration Day

Through this engaging, welcoming and just plain fun program, you will create your first semester class schedule, select your first year seminar, and receive a student ID card as well as academic program information. You will also get to know your classmates and professors. Please note that you should make your travel arrangements after your appointment. Due to limited space, we will not be able to accommodate more than one guest with each student.

Sign up for an event:

  • Review the advising and registration dates (PDF).
  • Register for a Freshman Advising and Registration Day on the calendar. We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins.
  • Though it is strongly recommended that Freshman students attend an event to get the fullest picture of our events and opportunities and to be welcomed to the Webster University community by faculty, staff and students, students who cannot travel to campus may schedule a phone appointment by calling (800) 982-3847.
  • Use the resources listed below to make initial course selections and considerations.

Freshman Advising and Registration Day Preparation

Steps for registration.

  • After you have registered for a Freshman Registration Day above, choose a First Year Seminar and an alternative.
  • Review the requirements of any programs you would like to pursue, and jot down a few 1000- and 2000-level course selections that interest you.
  • Review the Global Citizenship Course options. You can review the entire GCP list and/or the GCP schedule for a specific semester. Select several options.
  • On the day of your appointment, bring your packet of information, registration confirmation and your own notes, as faculty and staff will be on hand to answer questions and help you register.

Students who will be registering by phone are required to have viewed both of the orientation videos listed below as well as be at a computer at the time of their call.
