Transfer Students

Welcome to Webster University! You are part of a large and important part of our undergraduate student body, and we are here to help you navigate the transition to Webster. Advisors in the Academic Advising Center assist transfer students with their first registration appointment where we will help you understand how the credit you’ve already earned will fit into Webster University requirements for your chosen major, for the Global Citizenship Program (Webster’s general education program), and electives. We’ll also orient you to our academic policies and work to get you assigned to a faculty or staff advisor in your major program.

Once your admission to Webster is complete and you are ready to register for your first semester, please call the Academic Advising Center at (314) 968-6972 or (800) 982-3847 to schedule a one-on-one appointment. 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.

To prepare for your first advising appointment, please follow the below steps:

STEP 1: Review the Online Orientation Packet

STEP 2: Review the information on the Transfer Students homepage at You can access Webster’s Transfer Equivalency Database to see how your transfer credits apply to Webster requirements.

STEP 3: Review the Undergraduate Catalog to determine your degree requirements. On the catalog, select “Majors” from the left hand menu to access a list of all majors Webster offers. Review the “Degree Requirements” for your major.

STEP 4: Use the Course Schedule to look for available courses. Make a list of courses to discuss with your advisor.
