Support Services

Academic Counseling

Academic counseling supports student success and is available to all students, undergraduate and graduate, throughout Webster's global system. Academic counseling conversations often focus on accessing University resources, goal setting, learning styles, motivation, note taking, self-advocacy, stress relief and management, study skills, test taking, time management, and more. Among the many specialty programs and consultations are:

  • Work with students on Academic Probation, with low or failing grades, with grades of Incomplete, etc.
  • Work with transfer students and students with disability accommodations.
  • Work with conditionally admitted students, including an extensive program for students meeting the criteria for inclusion in the Transitions program.

Academic counseling is one-on-one support that provides the assistance students need when they need it.

If you have any questions about academic counseling or want to make an appointment, please email academiccounseling@webster.edu.

Academic Integrity at Webster University

Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity at Webster University

At Webster University, we value academic integrity as our mission is to ensure high-quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence. Our community plays a critical role in upholding our values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility.

Part of maintaining academic integrity is utilizing the resources available to students at Webster University.

Assistive Technology

Assistive technology is available for students who need additional support.

If you have any questions about assistive technology, please email atarc@webster.edu.

While many forms of assistive technology are available only to students with applicable disability accommodations, some technology and software is available to all students. Kurzweil 3000, a program that assists students with reading and writing, is an example of free software that is available to all students, undergraduate and graduate, throughout Webster's global system.

Disability Accommodations

Disability accommodations are available through the Reeg Academic Resource Center, and Webster University considers admission, financial aid, program, and activity applications without regard to disability. The Reeg Academic Resource Center's Academic ADA Coordinator helps St. Louis and online students with documented physical, psychological, medical and/or learning disabilities obtain the accommodations they need to have equal access to information and equal opportunity for program success. At extended sites and international campuses, the site director or a staff designee assists students with disability accommodations.

If you have any questions about disability accommodations, please email disability@webster.edu.

Testing Center

The Reeg ARC's Testing Center proctors rescheduled tests with an instructor's approval, accommodated tests, MBA prerequisite waiver exams, language placement exams and various other exams. Appointments should be made at least 24 hours in advance of the requested testing time.

Transitions

The Transitions program supports conditionally-admitted undergraduate students by preparing them for the academic rigor of Webster University. The Transitions program provides students with overall knowledge of available University resources. Specifically, the Transitions program serves students who are conditionally accepted to the University and have 30 or fewer hours of college coursework completed. The transition to college can be challenging, which is why Webster University offers the summer residential Transition and Academic Prep (TAP) program for Transitions students. If you have any questions about the Transitions or TAP program, please call 314-246-8768 or email transitions@webster.edu.
