Get credit for what you already know!

We understand that many adult students have completed college-level coursework prior to enrollment at Webster. That's why we have a generous transfer credit policy designed to maximize your previous academic experiences and help you complete your degree as quickly as possible.

  • College level courses (usually 100-level or above) completed at regionally accredited institutions with a passing grade may transfer toward your degree.
  • Students who have earned an associate degree from a regionally-accredited community college may transfer up to 98 credit hours to Webster as part of the complete associate degree, while students without an associate degree may transfer up to 64 credit hours from the community college.
  • Webster will accept up to 90 credit hours from regionally accredited four year colleges and universities.
  • Transfer credit may be considered on a case by case basis if earned through nationally accredited institutions. The maximum number of transferable credit hours from such institutions is 30 semester hours.

For more resources related to transfer credit, including community college transfer guides, police academy transfer guides, and equivalency database, see the University website: webster.edu/transfercredit

Estimated transfer credit evaluations may be completed as part of the admissions process. Connect with your admission counselor to request this, and we can help you determine what credits may be left for you to complete your degree at Webster.

Credit for Prior Learning - Webster awards credit for previous learning experiences that may fall outside of traditional transfer credit earned through another college or university. Webster follows recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE) for corporate and military training. Webster also provides options for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), where students document learning achieved through nonacademic experiences, most often through a formal portfolio.

What type of student gets accepted? Webster University considers past academic performance as the best predictor of future success. In general, students with at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average based on all college work attempted will be competitive applicants for admission, but we consider each student individually and make decisions based on a thorough review of each application. Students with grade point averages below a 2.5 may qualify for conditional admission based on the discretion of the Office of Admission.

When should I apply? You may apply for admission as early as one year before you plan to enroll at Webster. In order to take full advantage of financial aid and possible scholarship opportunities, we recommend that you submit your application early in the semester before you intend to enroll and be aware of financial aid or scholarship deadlines. However, Webster offers the flexibility of a rolling admissions process, which means we accept applications year-round.

How do I apply?

  1. Submit an application online at applywu.webster.edu.
  2. Request official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended.
  3. If you have completed fewer than 30 college credit hours, you must submit your official high school transcript listing date of graduation or official GED/HISET scores.
  4. Military students should submit an official Joint Services Transcript or Community College of the Air Force transcript. These documents should be submitted to Webster University Office of Admission (regardless of the campus location you plan to attend): Office of Admission - Webster University 470 East Lockwood Ave St. Louis, MO 63119
  5. Applicants for programs in nursing will be required to arrange for an interview.

All applications and supporting documents will be reviewed on a rolling basis, though we recommend applications be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the start of the intended term of enrollment.
