Admission to the Construction Management program parallels admission to WKU. The American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is required of all beginning freshmen. A student having deficiencies in certain subjects is given the opportunity to take remedial courses, while enrolling in the major, in order to have the required skills.
There are three categories for freshmen admission to WKU: 1) Full, 2) Directed, and 3) Conditional. These admission categories are summarized below:
|1. Pre-College Curriculum (see below)||1. Pre-College Curriculum (see below)||1. Minimum unweighted 2.0 high school GPA on a 4.0 scale OR ACT composite of 16 (for Spring 2011 admission) or 17 (for Summer or Fall 2011 admission)|
|2. Minimum 2.5 unweighted high school GPA on a 4.0 scale OR ACT composite of 20 or higher||2. Minimum 2.5 unweighted high school GPA on a 4.0 scale OR ACT composite of 20 or higher||(Note: students admitted conditionally will enroll in the WKU University College)|
|3. ACT Reading subscore of 20 or higher OR ACT English subscore of 18 or higher||3. ACT Reading subscore below 20 AND ACT English subscore below 18|
External transfer students must have a minimum GPA of "C" (2.0 on 4.0 unweighted scale) for the last semester or term of full-time work, a cumulative GPA of "C" (2.0 on 4.0 unweighted scale) and be in good standing at the institution from which they are transferring. WKU accepts credit from other institutions if the institutions have met the accrediting standards of the appropriate regional accreditation association. Students who have previously earned course credit from a non-regionally accredited institution may petition for recognition of that credit. Consideration is given to courses whose content suggests competencies at least equivalent to courses offered by WKU. Transfer students are not allowed to ignore previous college work. Transfer students with fewer than 24 hours earned are required to have completed the pre-college curriculum. High School transcripts and ACT/SAT test scores will be required for students with fewer than 24 hours earned.
