Welcome to WKU!

We are excited to welcome you to WKU!  

By now you are narrowing down your choices.  Maybe you've visited, applied, or maybe you've been accepted!  You might be wondering what to do next?  Will WKU contact you?  Do you need to contact someone?  Who will your roommate be, and did you receive your financial aid?  How do you register for classes? This site answers some of your most pressing questions!

The links on this page offer a comprehensive listing of your next steps in becoming a Hilltopper!  Our FAQ's at the top of the page cover many topics that will help you along the way.  If you can't find your answer here, then check out the different ways you can connect with us at WKU to ask questions, meet other students, and more!
