Resources for Incoming Freshmen

Freshman Registration Days

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. Download the flyer (PDF) and registration dates (PDF), and then register for a Freshman Registration Day on the calendar

Remember to make your travel arrangements after you have secured your appointment. Due to logistical concerns and room space, we will not be able to accommodate walk-ins or more than one guest with each student.

Though it is strongly recommended that Freshman students attend one of the Freshman Registration Days events 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.

Freshman Registration Day Preparation

Don't worry! We will take you through the 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. 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. There are two versions of the first video, depending on your intended degree. In the case of a double major involving degrees listed for both videos, you need only watch the video for the BA and BS degree seeking students.

Orientation Materials

Download our orientation packet, which helps new undergraduate students become familiar with a variety of on-campus and online resources, such as online registration, the online undergraduate catalog and online course schedule, and accessing student email. Check out the video about your Connections Portal into your online student account.
