St. Louis Community College and Webster University Nursing Dual Admission Program

The Dual Admission program (DAP) between St. Louis Community College and Webster University makes it possible for students to be jointly admitted to both institutions.  It provides nursing students at STLCC with the opportunity to seamlessly complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at Webster University and provides students with access to resources at both institutions. 

Benefits of the Dual Admission Program

  • You can work with a faculty advisor to maximize transfer credit and complete your BSN more efficiently. 
  • You can be admitted to the nursing program at Webster immediately upon admission to the ADN program at STLCC; this gives you the opportunity to tell potential employers you are admitted into a BSN program while still pursuing your associate degree.
  • You can take classes at Webster while completing your ADN program.*  See section below for more information regarding possible dual enrollment.
  • You can participate in all student activities at STLCC and open attendance student activities at Webster.
  • You can access student services--including computer labs, library, and on-campus speakers and events-- at both institutions.
  • Work while you learn--Webster's evening and online classes provide flexibility to allow you to work while you pursue your BSN degree.
