Students at Webster University have a great deal of freedom to choose their courses. This can be daunting when looking at all the choices available and figuring out what is best for you. We also understand that many students are coming to Webster from countries all over the world and may not be that familiar with the American university system. So you may find yourself needing help getting and staying on track for a timely graduation.
Therefore, academic advising plays a major role in the student's academic career at Webster and provides students with individualized academic program planning.
How Advising Works
On acceptance to the university, students are put in touch with their advisor to discuss their academic plans and to register for classes.
Throughout their academic careers at Webster, students work with their academic advisor to plan their choice of university courses. The advisor helps the student choose coursework to meet individual educational and career goals, informs students about academic policies and procedures, and helps solve a variety of academic problems. Ultimately, however, it is the responsibility of each student to keep apprised of current graduation requirements for his or her particular degree program.
