Resources for Undergraduate Transfer Students

Fall 2014 Registration

Through this interactive program, you will create your fall semester class schedule, network with faculty, staff, and peers, and receive a student ID card as well as academic program information. You will also get to know your classmates and professors. Register for a Transfer 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.

*NOTE: Transfer students in the School of Education  will be contacted directly by the School of Education regarding transfer enrollment.

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 (*see below). 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, contact the Academic Advising Center to schedule an appointment with an advisor for your initial registration.

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 began a phased implementation, beginning with brand new college students pursuing BA and BS degrees in the Fall of 2012 and in 2013. *For 2014, BA and BS degree-seeking transfer students with fewer than 75 transfer hours will fall under Global Citizenship Requirements. Until the 2015-2016 academic year, BA and BS degree-seeking transfer students with 75 credit hours or more, as well as students seeking BFA, BM, BMEd, and BSN degrees will remain under the General Education Program. In 2015, the Global Citizenship Program will apply to all new students.
