International Student Resources
International students on F-1 and J-1 visas will be advised by an international student academic advisor who provides academic advising for most graduate degree programs. Students in certain specialized programs will be assigned to a faculty advisor. Initial advising appointments may be conducted via email, virtually, phone or in person. Students should schedule appointments in advance by contacting the Academic Advising Center at 314-968-6972 or 1-800-982-3847 or emailing email@example.com.
International Services provides information for prospective and current international students on a variety of topics.
Students on F-1 and J-1 visas are allowed to request permission to work on-campus for up to twenty (20) hours per week during enrollment sessions. For the current list of available on-campus employment opportunities, please visit the Career Planning and Development Center's Student Employment Page.
Optical Practical Training
Optional Practical Training (OPT) allows students to work within their field of study for up to one year after their degree completion. OPT is work that is applied for and granted by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Curricular Practical Training (CPT)
Curricular Practical Training allows a student who has maintained F-1 status for at least nine (9) months to work within his/her field of study during an approved internship for academic credit.
Re-enrollment & Readmission
Re-enrollment is the step to take if you meet the following two criteria:
- You have been away from Webster for one or two semesters, not counting summer,
- You are not dismissed.
To re-enroll, contact the Academic Advising Center at (314) 968-6972 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to connect to an advisor. The advisor will ask you questions to determine what courses you should enroll in, and he/she will assist in enrolling you in courses to continue your chosen major or certificate at Webster.
The advisor will also check to see if you have a hold, which could be because you owe money. If this is the case, the advisor will refer you to Webster’s Business Office to make a plan to resolve your financial obligations. With finances in order, you can re-enroll in courses to complete your degree. If you completed credit hours at another institution while you were away from Webster, you will need to send official transcripts to email@example.com so that credits can be transferred to Webster.
Readmission is the path to take if:
- You have been away from Webster for more than two semesters, not counting summer.
After two semesters – which is one academic year – returning students must meet the
requirements of the program in the current catalog. If your chosen academic program
has changed, you will need to meet the new requirements. To apply for readmission,
you will complete an Undergraduate Application for Readmission and work with the Academic Advising Center to determine your program requirements.
- You were dismissed from Webster University. In this case, you can be considered for readmission. You will complete an Undergraduate Application for Readmission which will be reviewed by advisors in the Academic Advising Center to determine your academic readiness to continue at Webster.
In either case, if you completed credit hours at another institution, you will need to send official transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org so that credits can be transferred to Webster.
