We're Happy That You Want to Return!

Whether you've been away for a semester or a year — or even longer — we’re glad to work with you to chart a path for your return and the completion of your undergraduate degree or certificate.

We know every situation is unique, and your pathway to degree completion depends on your specific circumstances.

Re-Enrollment

Re-enrollment is the step to take if you meet the following two criteria:

  • You have been away from Webster for one or two semesters, not counting summer,

AND

  • You are not dismissed.

To re-enroll contact your academic advisor. They will determine what courses you should enroll in, and they will assist in enrolling you in courses to continue your chosen major or certificate at Webster.

The advisor will also check to see if you have a hold, which could be because you owe money. If this is the case, the advisor will refer you to the Finance Office to make a plan to resolve your financial obligations. With finances in order, you can re-enroll in courses to complete your degree.

Readmission

Readmission is the path to take if:

  • You have been away from Webster for more than two semesters, not counting summer. After two semesters — which is one academic year — returning students must meet the requirements of the program in the current catalog.

If your chosen academic program has changed, you will need to meet the new requirements. To apply for readmission, you will complete an Undergraduate Application for Readmission and work with Academic Affairs to determine your program requirements.

OR

  • You were dismissed from Webster University. In this case, you can be considered for readmission. You will complete an Undergraduate Application for Readmission which will be reviewed by Academic Affairs to determine your academic readiness to continue at Webster.

In either case, if you completed credit hours at another institution, you will need to send official transcripts to transcripts@webster.edu so that credits can be transferred to Webster. For questions, please contact the Registrar at +66(0) 32 899 100 Ext. 9601 or registrar@webster.nl.

To request the following letters, fill out a  registrar request form.

  • Proof-of-enrollment letter (for student visa, student insurance etc. — these letters can only be issued if you are currently registered for courses)
  • Proof-of-program-completion letter (for employers, graduate school applications, etc.)
  • Other (please specify clearly)

Please note that letters for currently enrolled students will be placed in their mailbox at Information and Services within two working days.

Our Students

Webster University students are typically multi-lingual and come from diverse cultural backgrounds. Our graduate students often have previous work experience in their home countries or abroad both in private and non-profit organizations. A key element of a Webster education is the focus on hands-on, practical knowledge as part of the learning experience. Our highly qualified academics are experienced in creating an inclusive and stimulating learning environment which is highly responsive to an international student body. The classroom is a forum for discovering fresh perspectives not only on the subject studied, but also on the challenges of becoming a global citizen. Lectures, group work, discussions, case study analyses, and real-life and research projects coupled with teamwork and student presentations help the students to develop strong communication, analytical, and problem-solving skills. Classes are taught in English.
