Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that is not answered here, feel free to contact us and ask.

What if I want to take just one course?
On a space-available basis, non-WebBSIT majors may take WebBSIT courses. If you are not already enrolled at a WebBSIT institution you must file a transient student application. Talk to your home institution’s advisor for more information.

What if I already have an Associate’s Degree?
It’s possible that your Associate Degree may have transferable credits. Proceeding with the Application Process is the way to find out just where you stand.

What if I really know VERY little about IT?
This is the place to learn. Our Bachelor of Science Degree plan will prepare you for what you need.

Does the HOPE Scholarship apply?
Financial aid for our program is the same as for our “on-campus” students.

What if I’m already enrolled in another college?

That decision is determined when you apply to the institution.
