Initial Registration Preparation

  • STEP 1: Review the Undergraduate Catalog to determine your degree requirements as well as the transfer guides, policies, and transfer equivalency database. Identify which general requirements apply to you (may vary by student and program): general education or global citizenship. Check your requirements to verify what courses you have remaining.
  • STEP 2: Check the Course Schedule for available courses.
  • STEP 3: You must have a copy of your transcripts on file at the main campus so they may be evaluated before your appointment. If you have not yet sent your official transcripts, they must be received by the end of your final term. 
  • STEP 4: After you have been accepted to the University, you will be contacted by the Academic Advising Center to schedule an appointment with an advisor for your initial registration.
  • STEP 5: Review the preparatory registration materials sent to you in your appointment confirmation email.
  • STEP 6: Be at a computer with Internet access at the time of your appointment.

General Education/Global Citizenship Program Requirements

Webster University requires all baccalaureate students to complete a general education program in addition to the major and elective requirements. These requirements are intended to provide a general framework for the degree outside the major and provide course requirements to ensure university graduates have a broad set of knowledge and skills.

In 2011, the faculty of Webster University approved the Global Citizenship Program (GCP) to replace the previous General Education Programs. The GCP will have a phased implementation, beginning with brand new college students pursuing BA and BS degrees in the Fall of 2012 and in 2013. In later years, transfer students and students pursuing other degrees (such as the BFA, BSN, and BM) will be included, as well.
