The Graduate School - Current Students


All degree seeking and certificate seeking students must submit a Program of Study within the first semester (or 12 hours of course work).  The degree program is developed in consultation with and approved by the student's graduate program advisor.  Any changes to the Program of Study must be submitted on a Program of Study Change form.

All programs require a written or oral examination, or an approved capstone course be successfully completed.  Finally, students must submit through TopNet an Application for Graduation and fee the semester prior to completion.

Matriculation as a graduate student is described in detail in the Graduate Catalog.  Students should also consult their department/program for any additional requirements for completion.  Contact the Graduate School (graduate.records@wku.edu, 270-745-2446) if you have questions.  

*Students in a teacher certification program should contact the Teacher Certification Office for completion information, 270-745-4300.
