Freshmen: A Freshmen is a student who enrolls at Webster directly from high school, or transfers in from another accredited university with less than one year of courses (less than 30 credits).

When to Apply

Webster Athens maintains a rolling admissions policy meaning that prospective students have seven different times a year that they can apply to the University: Fall I begins in August, Fall II begins in October, Spring I begins in January, Spring II begins in March. We also have Summer Session in May, June and July. We urge applicants to file an application at least one month prior to the expected date of enrollment, but late inquiries can be submitted as late as one week before classes begin, provided applicants meet the requirements for admission. Admissions Counselors as well as Academic Advisors are available for counseling prior, during, and after student enrollment.

All application documents submitted to Webster University become the property of the university and cannot be returned or reproduced. Keep a copy of all documents submitted.


English as a Second Language Contingent Admission

Some applicants are accepted to the University but may have additional English language proficiency needs that can be met by taking English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. These students will be accepted on a contingent basis. Students admitted with an ESL contingency must meet the University's English language proficiency requirements before their contingent admission status can be waived.

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.

International Student Visa Information

Once you are accepted into Webster Athens you will have to secure a student visa to be able to travel to Greece and begin classes. The visa process may take some time depending on the country of origin. It is very important that you allow yourself time for this process so you can arrive in Athens before the beginning of the desired semester and not after it has already begun.

The Municipality here in Athens requires specific documents from the student in order for them to issue the official certificate, which allows you to apply for a student visa. For more information see Visas & Permits
