Welcome to WKU!

Congratulations on your admission to Western Kentucky University!  We are so excited to welcome you to WKU!  

Now that you've received your acceptance letter, you are probably wondering what's up next?  Will we 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 strives to answer some of your most pressing questions!

We hope you will view the links to the left for your next steps in becoming a Hilltopper!  Our comprehensive list of FAQ's at the top of the page will cover many topics that will help you along the way.  We also hope you will join our WKU on Facebook App, a private social network that we built just for you so that you can connect with your classmates and with WKU personnel to answer your most pressing questions in real time!

Of course, you may feel free to contact us at any time!  We are excited that you have chosen WKU and can't wait until you arrive in the Fall!

It's cool to be a freshman at WKU!
