WKU Undergraduate Catalog

Undergraduate Catalog

The Undergraduate Catalog is an invaluable resource for all current and future WKU students. Within the catalog rests critical information for all WKU students to be aware of while spending their time on The Hill. The Undergraduate Catalog is a publication of the Office of the Registrar.

Student Catalog Rights

The student's initial term of entry is identified as the student's "catalog term." Catalog term rights include the following:

  • A student shall be entitled to follow general education and major/minor degree requirements contained in the catalog current when first enrolled at WKU as a degree-seeking student. This does not preclude the addition of requirements arising from action of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
  • A student will be allowed seven consecutive years from his/her catalog term to complete degree requirements. The college dean may grant an extension to this deadline.
  • A student who drops out and re-enrolls after an absence of seven consecutive years or more will be assigned the catalog term of the readmission term.
  • A student's catalog term will be changed to a more recent term if the student, in consultation with the advisor and with approval by the department head, agrees to follow more recent degree requirements.

Academic departments reserve the right to authorize appropriate course substitutions for earlier versions of major/minor requirements in which required courses have been discontinued.
