Message to Parents

Message To Parents

All students that participate in BEP are required to sign a FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) agreement. This will give you, the parent or guardian, a person to contact to get information about the academic performance, academic progress, and class attendance of your student. As a parent or guardian, you have a unique perspective on the role WKU plays in the educational and social development of your student. Another useful tool for students and parents or guardians is our 5th Week Freshman Assessment. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our webpage. This will help you to understand what will be required of your student while he/she participates in BEP. Thank you for choosing to accept such a critical role within the WKU family. We look forward to working with you in your student's academic growth.

Please feel free to contact the Retention Coordinator at (270) 745-5065 with any questions or concerns.
