Freshman Year Experience

Dear Undergraduate,

Welcome to the Webster University Thailand Campus. We are delighted that you have chosen to study for your Webster University [ St. Louis , USA ] accredited degree at the Thailand Campus. It will be our privilege and responsibility to prepare you for graduation and we look forward to working with you to achieve this goal.

The first year at University is vital and, in recognition of the challenges and emotions you will experience at this time, a specific program has been designed for you. The program is called the FRESHMAN YEAR EXPERIENCE [FYE]. Please read the details of the program carefully as they will prepare you for what will be an exciting year.

It seems appropriate to remind you at this juncture of the structure of your degree:

DEGREE REQUIREMENT : 128 credit hours (1 course is normally worth 3 credit hours.)
You MUST declare : A MAJOR (by end of year two) (specialist area e.g. INTL. Relations)
You MAY declare : A MINOR (a contrasting or complementary area to the major e.g. Computer Applications)
You MUST complete : GENERAL EDUCATION (take 1 course in each of nine areas of study)
To complete your degree : ELECTIVES (chosen by you from the curriculum with guidance from advisor)

The FYE program enables you to:

    • See at a glance the planned program of study for year one
    • See how you progress from one course to another in a sequence of learning
    • Attain a range of undergraduate skills which will be important throughout your degree.
    • Follow courses in what you consider is your likely MAJOR
    • Test your aptitude in other courses which may become your MAJOR (if you change your mind) or may become your MINOR

Gain credit hours towards your GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENT of 27 credit hours (36 credit hours for Media students)

      • Complete 30 credit hours towards graduation.

Because your first year of study has been planned, registration has been simplified. All that you will have to do is:

    • See at a glance the planned program of study for year one
    • See how you progress from one course to another in a sequence of learning
    • Attain a range of undergraduate skills which will be important throughout your degree.

I am confident that the FYE Program will help you settle into your studies and into life as an undergraduate. I look forward to addressing you at the Orientation and to working with you to graduation.

Yours Sincerely,

RECTOR
