Academic Policies and Information - Baccalaureate Degree Requirements

The Baccalaureate Degree Requirements section should read:

To earn a bachelor's degree, students must:

  • Complete at least 120 total credit hours
    • At least 30 of the last 36 credit hours must be earned in residence at Webster University.
    • Credit for assessment of prior learning or departmental credit by exam is considered in residence.
  • Earn a cumulative Webster University grade point average of 2.0 or better.
  • Satisfy the requirements of a major. Options include:
    • A major in a department.
    • An approved self-designed interdisciplinary major (SIM).
  • Meet the requirements of the Global Citizenship Program (GCP).

Bachelor's degrees are awarded in May, August and December.

Students must meet the requirements in effect at the time of their matriculation as degree seeking students. Students leaving the University for more than one calendar year must be readmitted and will follow the requirements in effect at the time of their readmission.

Academic Policies and Information - Honors at Graduation - University Academic Honors

The University Academic Honors section should read:

University Academic Honors (summa cum laude, magna cum laude, cum laude) are awarded, based on recommendations of the faculty Honors Board, to students who have achieved a high grade point average (GPA) across the curriculum. In determining University Academic Honors, the GPA includes any transfer courses used by the student to reach 120 credit hours. Because the Webster University permanent student record shows GPA based on Webster University courses only, students should consult a grade point calculator to determine their college career GPA for purposes of University Academic Honors.

Students whose transcript include the following three criteria will be awarded honors:

  • A minimum of 45 graded credit hours at Webster University
  • A minimum of 90 graded credit hours accumulated in the entire college career
  • A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.7

Students who have been found guilty of academic dishonesty by the Academic Honesty Board are not eligible to receive honors.

(Note: graded credit hours excludes grades of P and CR; cumulative grade point average includes all Webster University courses plus any transfer courses being used by the student to attain his/her 120 credit hours.)

Department chairs, academic directors and/or campus directors (as appropriate) may nominate exceptional students whose transcripts do not include 45 graded hours at Webster University or 90 graded hours accumulated across their college career. The third criterion above, a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.7, must be met. The Honors Board will consider these nominations for Honors based on a demonstration of excellent academic work in the ungraded credit hours, both in the field of study and in other disciplines. The chair/director nominating the student must provide a narrative presenting the student's exceptional academic work in the ungraded credit hours.

The type of honor awarded will be determined on the basis of the following GPAs:

GPA Honor
3.70-3.79 cum laude
3.80-3.89 magna cum laude
3.90-4.0 summa cum laude

 

University Academic Honors are awarded upon completion of all degree requirements. Webster University notifies students that they have been awarded Honors (if they have completed their degree requirements) or that that they have tentative Honors (if they have not yet completed their degree requirements). Upon completion of all courses and degree requirements, students who received notice of tentative Honors are notified of their final Honors status.

University Academic Honors are recorded on the permanent student record and on the diploma.

Academic Policies and Information - Transfer Credit - Requirements for Transfer Credit

The bulleted list under the Requirements for Transfer Credit section should read:

  • Official transcripts or other documentation of all previous study must be submitted to the Office of Admission at the time of application.
  • The University accepts a maximum of 90 credit hours of transfer work toward a bachelor's degree unless that work includes significant lower-division work.
  • If the transfer work includes significant lower-division work, the University accepts a maximum of 64 credit hours from any combination of the following:
    • Credit hours from community colleges, unless the credit hours are part of a successfully completed associate degree program from a regionally accredited institution.
    • Credit hours completed in programs designated by Webster University as lower-division.
    • Credit hours included in the 32-credit-hour maximum awarded for first year (freshman) work earned through any combination of International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement and other designated 13th year programs normally completed prior to enrollment at the University.
    • Standardized tests designated as lower-division.
  • Duplicate coursework does not transfer.
  • Transfer credit hours do not count toward the University's residency requirement. The residency requirement is the completion of 30 credit hours of the last 36 credit hours prior to graduation.

Academic Policies and Information - Transfer Credit - Transfer of Associate Degrees

The second paragraph of the Transfer of Associate Degrees section should read:

Transfer students must meet the University's minimum residency and graduation requirements. While students with associate degrees typically transfer 64 credit hours -- approximately the first two years of the baccalaureate educational experience -- students may transfer in up to 90 credit hours as part of the completed associate of arts degree. Transfer for additional lower-division credit beyond the associate degree is restricted.

Academic Policies and Information - Transfer Credit - Transfer of Associate Degrees - Associate Degree Registered Nurses

The second paragraph of the Associate Degree Registered Nurses section should read:

Webster University may accept up to 90 lower-division credit hours, including lower-division credit hours earned beyond the first associate degree and for credit by examination, for RN students seeking a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN). This may include credit hours advanced by the community college for licensed practical nurse (LPN) advanced placement. Refer to the Nursing department for more information.

Academic Policies and Information - Undergraduate Grading Policy - Grading System - Grade Points and Grade Point Average (GPA)

The Grade Points and Grade Point Average (GPA) section should read:

A grade point average (GPA) is calculated and is recorded on the student record. The GPA is based only on work taken at Webster University. However, for determining University Academic Honors, GPA includes any transfer credits a student used to reach 120 hours. (See University Academic Honors, below.)

CR (Credit awarded), Pass (P), Incomplete (I), Withdrawn (W) or Waived (WV) are not used in calculating the GPA. If a student repeats a course, the most recent grade is used to calculate the GPA.

Enrollment - Course Load Guidelines

The first paragraph of the Course Load Guidelines section should read:

The recommended academic load for full-time students is 15 credit hours each semester. Fifteen credit hours for eight semesters total the 120 credit hours required for a degree. For students enrolling in 8-week terms, the recommended academic load is two to three courses per term (6-9 credit hours). Students in good academic standing must request written approval from the Academic Advising Center to enroll in more than 18 credit hours in a single semester (or more than 9 credit hours in a term). Students who take more than 18 credit hours are charged for the additional credit hours at the per-credit-hour rate.

Financial Information - Academic Scholarship Renewal

The Academic Scholarship Renewal section should read:

Webster University scholarships are renewable if the recipient makes satisfactory academic progress as defined in the scholarship contract, maintains continuous enrollment in a minimum of 13 credit hours each semester at Webster and has not exceeded eight full time semesters for freshmen and four full time semesters for transfer students. Student records are checked at the end of the spring semester to determine whether the recipient has achieved satisfactory academic progress for renewal.

Financial Information - Satisfactory Academic Progress - Maximum Time-Frame

The Maximum Time-Frame section should read:

Degree requirements must be completed within a specific time frame. The maximum time frame for an Undergraduate Degree at Webster University is 180 credit hours (120 credit hours x 150%). Hours earned at Webster as well as hours transferred and accepted by Webster are considered in this time frame. Any student who has exceeded the maximum time frame and/or who mathematically cannot finish the program within this period will be considered ineligible for financial aid. Webster University understands students may change their educational goals and programs of study, and additional education is often needed to enhance career opportunities. These students may provide a written request for reevaluation of their status.

Nursing (BSN)

The Transfer Credit for the RN to BSN Program section should read:

Webster University may accept up to 90 lower-division credit hours, including lower-division credit hours earned beyond the first associate degree and for credit by examination, for registered nurse (RN) students seeking a bachelor of science in nursing. This may include credit hours advanced by the community college for licensed practical nurse (LPN) advanced placement. Please refer to the nursing department for more information.

Nursing (BSN)

The Program Description section should read:

The bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program is designed for the registered nurse who wishes to advance his or her knowledge in nursing, the sciences and the liberal arts. The program helps the registered nurse develop analytic and communication skills for professional excellence.

The BSN curriculum focuses on holistic health promotion for the individual student, the profession, the individual client, the family, groups and the community. There is a strong emphasis on the nurse's personal development, the needs and future of the profession and the broad, accountable nursing role that is needed and expected by today's health care consumer. The program prepares the registered nurse for generalist nursing practice. A variety of faculty members, student experiences and learning environments are used to meet program and individual student goals.

The program is tailored to working adults, offering part-time enrollment and eight-week terms. To accommodate individuals' unique learning preferences, classes are offered in two formats: face-to-face or online. Eligible students attend evening face-to-face classes at our St. Louis-area corporate partner sites. Typically, students complete the core nursing curriculum in 2 to 2.5 years depending on if courses are taken in the summer. Frequently, students must take additional Global Citizenship Program and/or elective courses to fulfill degree requirements. Nursing faculty advisors discuss additional requirements during the admission interview.
