For Prospective Students

The short answer is yes, provided they are college-level courses from regionally-accredited institutions, completed with a grade of C- or better.

All transfer credit is capped at 98 credit hours whether from dual credit programs, AP scores, military experience, community colleges, or other four-year institutions. If you have completed an associate degree, we will accept the amount of credit hours needed to obtain the degree within the 98 credit hour maximum. If an associate degree was not completed, we will accept up to 64 credit hours from the community college. We will take a total of 30 semester hours from a nationally accredited institution.

All transfer coursework is evaluated for the closest appropriate equivalency for Webster major requirements if approved by faculty, general education requirements, or elective credit.

We have a list of all previously transferred coursework from various other colleges available on our transfer database. We also have transfer guides that will provide information on what classes will transfer to specific majors at Webster from different institutions.

If you don't see some of your coursework in that database, it doesn't mean it won't transfer; it just isn't in the database yet. Contact your admissions counselor, who can reach out to the faculty for approval!

Students with the last names beginning with A-G applying to the Webster Groves home campus will work with Zachary Tobey; students with last names beginning with H-O applying to the Webster Groves home campus will work with Damian Whitney; students with last names beginning with P-Z applying to the Webster Groves home campus will work with Stacey Tunnicliff.

You can reach out to your admissions counselor for an unofficial evaluation of your previous coursework; this will give you a better idea of how your classes will transfer, and what credits you will still need to graduate. After we receive the final, official transcripts, the registrar will begin the process of officially evaluating your transfer credit. Your transfer credits will move to your academic record and populate in your degree audit shortly after the beginning of your first semester.

After being admitted to Webster, students will work with the Academic Advising Center to enroll in courses and plan the remaining requirements toward their degree. You will also be assigned a faculty advisor within your major during your first semester.
