Undergraduate Transfer Application Process

Webster University operates on a rolling admissions basis, meaning you can submit your application at any time during the year. An admission decision is normally made within two weeks of receiving all application documents. For prospective students who need a student visa, we recommend completing your application at least two months before your desired enrollment date.

How to Apply    

Apply online and prepare to submit the following documents:

  • Original high school transcripts that document at least the last three years of academic work to date (normally 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year grades of 1st semester), as well as your graduation date. Transfer students who have completed 30 credit hours or more of coursework at another university do not need to submit their secondary school transcript.
  • Official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended, documenting all coursework attempted.
  • Certified true copy of high school diploma or External exams certificate
  • Literal English translations of the diploma and transcripts (if they are not in English). Translations must be official: certified by an accredited translator or notarized by a competent legal authority. We do not accept photocopies of translations
  • English proficiency results from either a TOEFL or IELTS test
  • A 300 word essay to discuss the following:
    1. Your education and life experience 
    2. How have these experiences shaped your life goals?
    3. How do you expect this program to help you achieve your goal?
  • A letter of recommendation
  • Official ID - A photocopy of a national identity card or passport biographical page

Evaluation of your Application

Each application is reviewed by the Admissions Committee. We look for evidence of your potential to be successful at Webster University. Primary consideration is given to your academic performance, the rigor and content of your coursework, your documented English language proficiency, your motivation, commitment and readiness for university life, as demonstrated in your application essay and discussed in your academic recommendations.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

Transfer credits are not automatically awarded as institutions and credit system differ from country to country. Consequently, during the application process, an applicant may request a preliminary evaluation as to how many credits might be transferable. The official final evaluation of transfer credit is made once all original documents are submitted and the student is officially enrolled in Webster. Course equivalency requirements are determined by the appropriate academic department and/or Advisors.
