Complete Your Degree with Us
Whether you’re finishing your undergraduate degree, seeking a career change or pursuing an advanced degree, we’re here to help you achieve your academic goals. As a fully American-accredited university in Europe, we offer transferable credits from other recognized universities in the U.S., U.K. or Canada.
Transferring to Webster Athens is a simple process starting with our rolling admissions policy. That means prospective transfer students who have accumulated more than 30 credit hours from another accredited establishment have seven times a year to apply to our University.
To learn more about transferring credit, email our Admissions team so they can help you stay on track.

All students from outside the European Union must request a Greek Student Visa from the Greek Embassy or Greek Consulate in your country of residence before entering Greece.

The minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent. Academic achievement in programs that use a different assessment scale is evaluated in the context of the relevant academic system.
English as a Second Language Contingent Admission
Some applicants are accepted 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.
Transfer credits are not automatically awarded as institutions and credit system differ from country to country. Consequently, during the application process, an applicant may request a preliminary evaluation as to how many credits might be transferable. The official final evaluation of transfer credit is made once all original documents are submitted and the student is officially enrolled. Course equivalency requirements are determined by the appropriate academic department and/or Advisors.
Each application is reviewed by the Admissions Committee. We look for evidence of your potential to be successful at our 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.
Once you are accepted 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 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. To learn more, see Visas and Permits.
