Admissions Criteria


Evaluation of your Application

Each application is reviewed by the Admissions Committee. We look for evidence of your potential to be successful at Webster University.  Primary consideration is given to your academic performance, the rigor and content of your coursework, your documented English language proficiency, your motivation, commitment and readiness for university life, as demonstrated in your application essay and discussed in your academic recommendations.

Admissions Requirements

You may apply before you receive your high school diploma, but your admission status will be contingent upon successfully completing your secondary education.  Each application is reviewed individually and holistically, taking into consideration your courses, grades, essays, recommendation letters, etc.  The general guidelines for admission to Webster University Geneva are as follows:

A minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 on a 4 point scale, or its equivalent in other grading systems (academic achievement in programs that use a grading or assessment scale other than a 4.0 is evaluated in the context of the relevant academic system).

The English language proficiency minimum requirement is a TOEFL score of 550 points on the Paper-based test (PBT) or 80 points Internet-based test (iBT) or an IELTS score Overall band 6.0. If you score between 510 and 550 on the paper-based TOEFL (64-80 on the iBT) or between a 5.5 and 6.0 on the IELTS and your GPA is equivalent to 2.5 or higher on a 4 point scale, you may be admitted on the condition that you take English as a Second Language (ESL) course(s) when you first enroll at Webster. You will need to meet the University’s required English proficiency level before enrolling in non-ESL courses. ESL courses at Webster will count towards your bachelor degree.
