What is Adult Learner Services?

Adult Learner Services is a program specifically designed to help adults pursue a college degree. Thinking about entering college for the first time but don't know where to start? Considering going back to school to finish a degree you started years ago but didn't complete? Wondering how long and what classes you would have to take to finish? We can help with these and other questions.

WKU Adult Learner Services offers a wide variety of assistance to "non-traditional" students.

We offer assistance with:

  • Degree audits—determining remaining requirements for completing a degree for returning adult learners or determining the quickest route to completing a degree
  • Procedures for admissions and re-admissions
  • Financial Aid  
  • Setting up NET ID & topper webmail
  • Registering for class
  • Referrals to campus resources
  • Academic renewal
  • Navigating the WKU website
  • Blackboard and online classes
  • Placement exams
