Registration Preparation for First-Semester Freshmen
|Step 1: Review the Undergraduate Studies Catalog to review majors available. Webster University offers over 100 different majors from which you can choose. Write down the names of majors you may be interested in studying.
Step 2: If your acceptance letter indicates that you are required to take on-campus English Proficiency Tests, make arrangements to sit for the exam during scheduled testing dates. You will register for classes with an advisor after your on-campus exams are complete.
Step 3: Review course descriptions for introductory (1000-2000 level) courses in your major in the Undergraduate Studies Catalog. If you are undeclared or unsure of your major, look for descriptions of courses that may interest you. Write down course numbers and titles of courses.
Step 4: Choose a Great Thinkers Seminar. All first-semester freshmen are required to take a Great Thinkers Seminar during the fall semester. After registration begins each year, seats fill up quickly. Choose several different seminars so that you have alternates in mind if your first choice is already full.
Step 5: Review the General Education Requirements. Write down the course number and titles of general education courses you may be interested in taking. Many first-semester freshmen take one or two courses that fulfill general education requirements in their first year of study.
Step 6: Using the notes you wrote down about majors and courses of interest, search the Course Schedule online to check if the course/s are available in your first semester. See the instructions for Creating a Schedule for additional information. (Please note that first year students may not take 8 week night classes during the first semester.) Write down a list of the course numbers, titles, and SECTION numbers for classes you would like to take.
Step 7: Submit all Advanced Placement (AP) exam results, International Baccalaureate (IB) certificate or diploma results, General Certificate of Education (GCE) results to the Office of Admissions. Advisors can access information on any potential transfer credit after the Office of Admissions receives the official documentation.
Step 8: Overseas students may contact Academic Advising for an email registration consultation, or if you prefer, you may request a telephone or Instant Messenger appointment. Contact Academic Advising at email@example.com or call us at 314-968-6972.
