The Cornerstone Program provides academic assistance to incoming first-year students as they transition to WKU. Students will collaborate with faculty, staff, and peers to develop crucial academic skills.


The Best Expectation Program (BEP) is an initiative designed to help students improve their academic performance and ultimately graduate from WKU. BEP is required for students with an academic standing of Academic Probation or Academic Committee Approval.
