  • If an undergraduate student, you must have successfully completed a minimum of 15 credit hours at Webster University at the time of international travel
  • If a graduate student, you must have successfully completed a minimum of 9 credit hours at Webster University at the time of international travel
  • You must be in good academic standing

Webster World Traveler Award

The purpose of this award is to provide round-trip airfare to degree-seeking students at Webster University wishing to study abroad at another location and return to their home campus to complete their degrees. This award is not applicable to students wishing to apply for a permanent site-transfer.

Qualifications for the Webster World Traveler Award:

  • You must successfully complete a minimum of one eight-week term (six credits) abroad as a full-time student.
  • You must remain enrolled as a full-time student in good standing while abroad in accordance with Webster University policy and local immigration law.
  • You must complete a minimum of 30 additional credit hours at Webster University, which may include credits earned while abroad or completion of the degree program at Webster University.
  • Successfully fulfill the service obligation to be determined in consultation with the Study Abroad/Student Services Office. The students, for example, would agree, on their return to Webster Ghana, to talk to current students about their experience, the added-value to their education and the lasting impact on their world view. By so doing they would encourage studying abroad to other students.
  • If you decide to change the ticket once it has been booked, you are financially responsible for any change fee and re-booking. 

Tuition fees:

While studying abroad you remain a Webster Ghana student and continue to pay your tuition fees to the Finance Office at the Ghana campus.
