Transfer Credits Guidelines

For military students, the Office of Admissions awards transfer credit according to the guidelines discussed on Webster University’s transfer credits pages. In general, it is Webster University policy to accept credits earned from Professional Military Education (PME) institutions and those institutions fully accredited by a regional accrediting association for colleges and universities, provided that such credits have been earned through university-level courses appropriate to the student’s degree program at Webster.

Official military transcripts (joint services transcripts) must be submitted to the Office of Admissions for evaluation. Coursework recommended for academic college credit at the lower- or upper-division level by the American Council on Education (ACE) will be considered for transfer provided that the coursework is applicable to the student’s degree program. Admissions reserves the right to accept or reject credits earned at other institutions of higher education. Exceptions are considered for all military students.
