Complete Your Degree with Us

Whether you’re finishing your undergraduate, seeking a career change, or pursuing an advanced degree, we’re here to help you achieve your academic goals. As a fully American-accredited university in Southeast Asia, we offer transferable credits from other recognized universities in the U.S., U.K., Canada or Europe.

Transferring to Webster Thailand is a simple process starting with our rolling admissions policy. That means prospective transfer students who have accumulated more than 30 credit hours from another accredited establishment can submit their application at any time during the year.

To learn more about transferring credit email our Admissions team, so we can help you stay on track.

Our Undergraduate Transfer Application Process

 

The Office of the Registrar conducts the transfer-of-credit-hour evaluation. Transfer credit normally includes:

  • College-level work completed at accredited institutions. We accept transfer credit college-level work satisfactorily completed with a grade of C or better. Courses completed with a grade of D have severe transfer restrictions and generally are not applicable toward graduation requirements.
  • Standardized tests conducted external to our University. These include ACT-PEP; Excelsior College Ex-aminations; CLEP; DANTES; GED College Level; and USAFI. Because this credit is normally designated lower division, no more than 64 credit hours are transferable. Academic departments approve area exams, establish possible course equivalencies, determine acceptable test scores, and determine the amount and level of credit. These exams are used to assess prior college-level learning and should be completed in the early stages of enrollment at the University. Standardized exams are not approved for upper-class students.
  • Extra-institutional credit. We award transfer credit for selected military and corporate training programs that have been reviewed by the American Council on Education (ACE). For information, see this section below.
  • Associate degrees. We always attempt to provide full transfer of successfully completed associate degrees from regionally accredited institutions. When part of a completed associate degree, transfer credit may include pass/fail courses, advanced placement, credit by examination, dual credit, and experiential learning credits. The integrity of the associate degree will not be invalidated by these components, and transfer credit will be provided according to existing academic policies.

 

We maintain policies and guidelines that promote and facilitate student transfer to the University, including transfer coursework applicable to general education requirements. Students who have completed an approved associate of arts degree will have satisfied Webster University’s general education requirement.

Students who have completed an approved general education program in which we hold articulation agreements (IGETC in California), will have satisfied our general education requirement. Completion of the general education program must be verified or documented on the sending institution’s official transcript.

Students transferring without completion of an associate of arts degree will have their previous college-level coursework evaluated on a course-by-course basis for equivalency with our general education requirement.

We provide full transfer credit for specialized associate degrees (associate of science, associate of fine arts, etc.) successfully completed at regionally accredited institutions. If completion of a required general education program is documented on the official transcript, the transfer student will have satisfied our general education requirement.

Additionally, we maintain many program-by-program articulation agreements to assist transfer students. Transfer without a degree is evaluated on a course-by-course basis subject to the University’s policies regarding lower-division programs.

Through articulation agreements, we accept credit hours for all required courses for a completed A.A.S. program in nursing. This may include credit hours advanced by the community college for licensed practical nurse (L.P.N.) advanced placement.

We maintain articulation agreements and policies for awarding undergraduate credit hours for selected categories of extra-institutional learning. These agreements, including special conditions or restrictions that apply, are outlined in the Webster University Direct Transfer Guideline book and include the following:

 

  • U.S. military training or credits based on the recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE). Students are encouraged to use the Army/ACE Registry Transcript System (AARTS) for documentation. Official documentation of training is required.

 

  • In-service training programs as recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE). Official documentation of successful completion must be submitted when requesting credit hours. Credit hours for in-service programs can be applied only once in the pursuit of degrees offered by Webster University and cannot duplicate credit hours previously earned.

 

  • Registered nurses who do not wish to enter the BSN program, and who have completed an accredited nursing program, may receive up to 30 transfer credit hours for each year of their diploma program. These students must petition for acceptance as a major in a major other than nursing or design an individualized area of concentration (IAOC).

 

  • A successfully completed Casa Dia Montessori (National Center for Montessori Education member school) certificate program may be accepted for 30 transfer credit hours toward degree requirements only. Students interested in state teacher certification will have to be assessed through Webster University’s experiential and individualized learning program to have the Montessori learning counted for certification. Students are required to schedule an appointment with the coordinator of teacher certification at Webster to review state teacher certification requirements.
