A certificate is a cohesive set of courses reflecting the knowledge and/or skills in a narrowly defined discipline that can be awarded as a stand-alone credential. Certificate programs are designed for both first-time degree-seeking students and individuals who already possess a baccalaureate degree. The University's certificates can be viewed at

Requirements for Certificates

  • Students must complete at least 18 credit hours of specified coursework in residence at Webster University.
  • Transfer credits may not be applied to a certificate.
  • Students must earn at least a grade of C or better in courses applied to the certificate. Some departments may establish a higher cumulative grade requirement for specific certificate programs.
  • Courses fulfilling the requirements of a certificate may also be used to satisfy the requirements of a degree program but may not be applied to another certificate.
Certificates are awarded in May, August, and December.

Admission and Financial Aid

Admissions policies for certificate-seeking students are the same as for baccalaureate degree-seeking undergraduates. The general academic and financial policies of the University apply to students seeking certificates. However, scholarship awards are available only to baccalaureate degree-seeking students. 
Stand-alone certificates are subject to the U.S. Department of Education's regulations on Gainful Employment. The U.S. Department of Education defines Gainful Employment program criteria and data requirements.
