Admissions

We understand that obtaining a graduate degree shouldn't only be for those willing to drop everything.

Webster University's graduate school is designed for the working adult. Classes meet in the evening on an accelerated term schedule, meaning a 36-credit hour Master's degree program can be completed in as little as 15 months. And our instructors are professionals in their field, combining college classroom theory with practical experience.

Graduate degrees for evening students are offered at universities across the region, but no one offers a combination of as many programs, as many locations and as many online options without sacrificing educational quality.

 

Admission Requirements

To apply for admission as a degree seeking student, the following must be submitted:

  1. A completed Application for Admission
  2. A non-refundable application fee ($50.00 for graduate, $35.00 for undergraduate)
  3. Official transcripts from all colleges or universities and other post-secondary institutions attended

Applicants to Webster's graduate program must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an educational institution accredited by one of the eight regional accrediting bodies in the United States. Students who have completed their university education abroad must have earned an equivalent baccalaureate degree as determined by Webster University.

Applicants to Webster's degree-completion programs should have successfully completed 3-4 semesters of college-level work prior to beginning studies at the University. Webster offers undergraduates Credit for Experiential Learning as well. Contact an academic advisor for more information on this program.

Full acceptance into these programs requires a minimum grade-point average (G.P.A.) of 2.5. Students whose G.P.A. is between 2.0 and 2.5 may be admitted under a "special status" category. Specialized programs may have further admission requirements as outlined in their program description.
