OLC Online Admissions Team: Mollie Baker

Mollie Baker

We took a moment to talk with Mollie Baker, our newest Counselor for Online Student Admissions:

Please tell us about yourself and your background. I am born and raised about 45 minutes South of St. Louis. I grew up playing sports and loving the outdoors. My mom was a college professor for 35 years, so I have been around higher education my whole life. It wasn’t until I went away for college and got a job as a Student Ambassador and Orientation Leader that I quickly knew higher education is what I wanted to do for my career. I love meeting and building relationships with students from all walks of life.

What do you do in your free time? I enjoy anything outdoors. My favorite sport to play is volleyball. Anything athletic/competitive, I am all over. Volleyball and tennis are my two favorite sports to play. I enjoy any DIY projects. I love Pinterest and have tried many crafts, recipes and more! I lead a small group for high school senior girls at my church and am involved with my church.

How long have you been with Webster? I have worked for Webster University since December 2016.

How do you help prospective Webster University Online students? I try to make the admissions process as simple and efficient as possible. I want to help students become Gorloks as soon as possible to begin their journey of success.

You answer many questions from prospective students, what are some of our students’ frequently asked questions?  How many of my credits will transfer over?  There is no one size fits all answer for this question, however you can see our undergraduate transfer policies on how many transfer credits Webster University accepts, here. Once a student applies and sends in their official transcripts, the transcripts will be evaluated for transfer credit. How much will it cost me? You can see tuition rates on the Webster.edu website.

What part of your job is the most satisfying? Getting to know students and helping them achieve their goal of earning a college education.

Do you have any advice for prospective students? Apply, send in your official transcripts and then ask how many of your credits will transfer over.   

What’s your favorite part of Webster University. I love everything Webster has to offer and the opportunities it gives employees to become involved on campus.
