5. Do I have to take the GRE or the GMAT to be admitted to graduate programs at Webster University?
No. To qualify for admission a student is not required to complete an entrance exam but must have earned a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university. A student is advanced to candidacy upon completion of 12 semester hours with a B average or above. We believe that maturity and motivation are more accurate indicators of an adult learner's potential for success than scores on standardized tests.

For B.A./B.S.N. students transferring to the Webster program, the admission requirement is a 2.5 grade point average (G.P.A.).

Graduate students are required to maintain a B average.
