Academic Policies

Academic policies are designed to provide the highest quality education and service to students. Our policies are based on both the American and Austrian education systems. General baseline policies may be found in the Student Handbook and the undergraduate and graduate catalogs. Supplemental Austrian policies† may be found in the WVPU Constitution, Study and Examination Guidelines of Webster Vienna Private University, and Thesis Guidelines for Students at Webster Vienna Private University.
