U.S. Army Command and General Staff College

Webster University's transfer credit guidelines with the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College (CGSC) provides two programs for pre-approved graduate transfer credit. The first program is for CGSC students prior to July 2003 and the second is for CGSC students from August 2003 and later.

Transfer credit for the CGSC program prior to July 2003 is limited to 9 credit hours based based on the transfer credit guidelines (earned grade of B- or above) in the Webster University graduate catalog for courses transferred from a regionally accredited educational institution.  If any Webster University students attended the Combined Arms Services Staff School (CAS-3), this would be an addition 3 credit hours for a total of 12 transfer credit hours.  

Transfer credit for the CGSC program August 2003 and later can be applied to the following degrees and is limited to 12-15 credit hours (earned grade of B- or above) depending on when the course was completed and the degree program chosen.

Transfer credit equivalencies are reviewed on an annual basis.  See below for the current agreement, which applies to the academic years 2012-2013, 2013-2014, and 2014-2015..
