Program Courses

Academic Year

Webster University students who study abroad on exchange at Obirin University will receive academic credit at Webster University for all courses. Depending on the type of program and the students' major, specific course equivalencies may vary and are subject to review by individual departments. The following information links to various resources that will help students understand, and prepare for, this process.

Students will register for courses locally in Japan. Students will not see the final grades on their Webster record until after the official transcript arrives from Obirin and is entered onto their record. Due to a difference in academic calendars, this happens several months after program completion. (Fall grades arrive in late March of the following semester, and Spring grades arrive in late October of the following semester).

Depending on individual students' major, the credits from Obirin University will apply differently at Webster University. It is important that students maintain contact with their home-campus advisor regarding this.

 The Office of Study Abroad will assist students with obtaining course equivalencies and approvals for Obirin courses.
