CIT@WKU for Valencia College Students

 

Welcome Valencia Students!

Welcome to CIT@WKU! My name is Mark Revels, and I am the program coordinator for the Computer Information Technology (CIT) program at WKU.

I apologize for the rather long welcome, but we want you to get off to a great start, so please be sure to read the following material carefully.

Because CIT is an online program, and because almost all correspondence occurs via e-mail, we usually conduct advising via email as well. However, first, note that the CIT website answers 99.9% of all student questions. So, please be sure to visit it at http://www.wku.edu/cit, especially the Advising link (left of this screen). After visiting the website, if you still have a question, please share.

 As you already (or soon will) have an AAS in an IT-related field from Valencia, you are considered a CIT 2+2 transfer student, which means the following must be completed for the CIT degree:

  • Four 300-level courses (usually taken in the first semester): CIT 300, 302, 352, 372 (12 hours)
  • Seven courses, to be selected from 400-level CIT courses and/or from AMS 342, 367, 390, 394, 396, 430, 475 (21 hours) 
  • Capstone course: AMS 490 (3 hours, to be taken in last semester)

 In addition, you will need to ensure:

  • 36 hours minimum in courses earned at WKU (usually satisfied with CIT courses)
  • 42 hours in upper-division credit (waived to 36 hours for 2+2 students, and usually satisfied with CIT courses)
  • 120 hours minimum overall
  • All Colonnade (general education) requirements are met (can be met with courses from Valencia or WKU)
  • Successful completion of MATH 116 or equivalent

If you also complete a degree containing 30 unduplicated semester credit hours of General Education (typically an Associate of Arts [AA] or an Associate of Science [AS]) from Valencia or other regionally accredited institution outside Kentucky, you are considered to have fulfilled all WKU Colonnade General Education requirements (for more on general education, see the WKU-Valencia articulation agreement here.)

Regardless of course requirements, please know that all CIT courses are online.

Also, please know that the CIT program does not accept transfer CIT courses, only degrees. Likewise, the program does not accept life experience, nor are there any test-out options for CIT classes.

You may also be interested in knowing that we have a master's program (Joint Undergraduate and Master's Degree Program, or JUMP) that provides the opportunity for academically outstanding CIT students to complete their combined online Bachelor of Science and online Master of Science in Engineering Technology Management (MSETM) degrees in as little as five years (or less for transfer students). This is an excellent opportunity for 2+2 transfer students who wish to follow a management track and obtain an advanced degree. Transfer (2+2) students can complete their Bachelor's degree with just 36 CIT course hours (as always), but up to twelve graduate hours will be dual-counted as CIT and MSETM hours. Thus, on graduation with the Bachelor's degree in CIT, students will only need 21 more hours to graduate with a Master's Degree in Engineering Technology Management (MSETM). Note: Students that take more than nine hours of AMS undergraduate courses as part of the undergraduate CIT program will not be allowed to double count any graduate AMS courses.

Again, please be sure to review our website at www.wku.edu/cit and the quick video overview here.

When you are ready to join the CIT program, see the Apply Now to CIT! link on the left of this page.

Let me know if you have any questions; I am always happy to help. You can email me at mark.revels@wku.edu

Thanks,

Dr. Revels
