check boxSend US your transcripts if you have prior college credit hours:

The transcript copy can be unofficial (obtained from the student) for review and planning purposes; however an official transcript (obtained directly from the higher education institution) is required for WKU Admissions.

You can obtain official transcripts for your previous military experience through the AARTS website.

You need to contact your previous college(s) to obtain an official transcript for your coursework at that school(s).

For unofficial evaluations of your course status, please mail (postal) or email (scanned copy) your transcripts to Bea Cobb, Military Programs Counselor. (Note that faxing of transcripts is not recommended due to the poor reading quality of the faxed copy.) Bea can also advise you on credit transfers, previous college credit, and credit for military experience.

check boxREGISTER for classes

WKU opens registration for classes much earlier than GoArmyEd. The WKU Academic Calendar gives the opening registration date for each semester or term. Since GoArmyEd only allows students to enroll in courses 8 weeks prior to the start of class, it is possible for some WKU courses to fill up before a GoArmyEd student can enroll. Therefore, we recommend that GoArmyEd students use TopNet to register for their classes as soon as WKU registration opens in order to reserve a spot in the class.


NOTE: You may register for classes both through WKU and the GoArmyEd portal
if you are concerned about getting a seat in a particular class.

 

WKU Registration 

WKU also offers self–paced Independent Learning courses with a more flexible completion schedule than traditional, semester–based courses. View the list of WKU Independent Learning courses.

Register for Independent Learning courses by first signing in to TopNet with your WKU ID number and Pin. Then select Registration from the Student Services tab. Select Register for Independent Learning. Then follow the on–screen directions provided to make your registration request.

Important Notice for Veterans Receiving VA Benefit:  Students who recieve Veteran Affairs (VA) benefits will need to go through VA Online Orientation one time, after admission and registration, before they can apply for VA benefits.  After they complete the orientation, they need to complete the form Certification Request Form (CRF) every semester as soon after registration as possible in order for processing to be complete by the start of the term.

 

GoArmyEd Registration 

Eight weeks prior to the start of class, go into the GoArmyEd portal to enroll in the course and make payment, if applicable. (Note that courses sometimes have course fees in addition to tuition.)

We don’t list every graduate course we offer on the GoArmyEd website. If you know that WKU is offering a course that you want, but you don’t see it on the GoArmyEd website, contact Bea Cobb (bea.cobb@wku.edu, 270-745-2626) or Tonya Archey (tonya.archey@wku.edu, 270-745-5308). They can add the course using their GoArmyEd administrator accounts.
