The Reeg Academic Resource Center is here to support you! The Center provides academic resources, support, advocacy, and access through relationships that empower students across the worldwide Webster University community.

Services include academic counseling, assistive technology, disability accommodations, a testing center, a tutoring program and writing services. The Reeg Academic Resource Center also provides resources and programming for academic integrity awareness and education, as well as programming and support for conditionally-admitted students. Let us know how we can help.

NOTE: While we continue to restructure our website on the new platform, you may find additional resources at the archived version of the site.


Academic counseling is available to all students, undergraduate and graduate, throughout Webster's global system and supports student success. Academic counseling conversations often focus on accessing University resources, goal setting, learning styles, motivation, note taking, self-advocacy, stress relief and management, study skills, test taking, time management, and more. Among the many specialty programs and consultations are work with students on Academic Probation, with low or failing grades, with grades of Incomplete, etc.; work with transfer students and students with disability accommodations; and work with conditionally-admitted students, including an extensive program for students meeting the criteria for inclusion in the Transitions program. Academic counseling is one-on-one support that provides the assistance students need when they need it.

If you have any questions about academic counseling or want to make an appointment, please call 314-246-8284 or email

Assistive technology is available for students who need additional support. While many forms of assistive technology are available only to students with applicable disability accommodations, some technology and software is available to all students. Kurzweil 3000, a program that assists students with reading and writing, is an example of free software that is available to all students, undergraduate and graduate, throughout Webster's global system.

If you have any questions about assistive technology, please call 314-246-4245 or email

Disability accommodations are available through the Reeg Academic Resource Center, and Webster University considers admission, financial aid, program, and activity applications without regard to disability. The Reeg Academic Resource Center's Academic ADA Coordinator helps St. Louis and online students with documented physical, psychological, medical, and/or learning disabilities obtain the accommodations they need to have equal access to information and equal opportunity for program success. At extended sites and international campuses, the site director or a staff designee assists students with disability accommodations.

More information about accommodations can be found on this page and in the podcasts linked there.

If you have any questions about disability accommodations, please call 314-246-7700 or email

The Reeg ARC's Testing Center proctors rescheduled tests with an instructor's approval, accommodated tests, MBA prerequisite waiver exams, language placement exams, and various other exams. Appointments should be made at least 24 hours in advance of the requested testing time.

The Transitions program supports undergraduate students conditionally admitted to Webster University by preparing these students for the academic rigor of the University. The Transitions program provides students with overall knowledge of available University resources. Specifically, the Transitions program serves students who are conditionally accepted to the University and have 30 or fewer hours of college coursework completed.

The Transitions program offers a variety of resources to help students reach their academic potential. Examples include academic counseling, PSYC 1000: Learning Strategies, organization and time management strategies, peer tutoring, writing support, and academic integrity.

As a Transitions student, you will be assigned an academic counselor with whom you will meet one-on-one regularly. Together, you will explore your strengths, areas of possible improvement, and how best to achieve your goals.

The transition to college can be challenging, which is why Webster University offers the summer Transition and Academic Prep (TAP) program for Transitions students. The TAP program is an exciting residential program for incoming Transitions students to Webster University where students can earn three credit hours toward their degrees at no cost. Please complete your virtual New Student Advising Appointment by July 1 to secure your spot in this program. Learn more information about the TAP program.

If you have any questions about the Transitions or TAP program, please call 314-246-8768 or email
