WKU Announces New Educator Discount


WKU Summer 2020 Educator Discount

Educators have worked harder than ever over the past few months, and WKU wants to thank them for the exceptional work they have done in ensuring that students of the Commonwealth continue to learn through this extraordinary time. Further discounting the rate of graduate education for Kentucky licensed educators to $325/credit hour is just one of the ways that WKU can show our appreciation for that work and honor WKU’s history of educating educators.


The WKU Educator Discount will….

  • Allow Kentucky educators the opportunity to earn graduate credit at WKU at a rate that is $282 below the standard graduate tuition rate, and $90 below the already-discounted rate of $415/hr for graduate education programs. 
  • Allow educators the opportunity to participate in optional special topics courses focusing on Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) pedagogy, technology, and leadership taught in partnership with regional district experts.

Who is Eligible for the Discount?

Anyone who is a legal resident of Kentucky and holds a current Kentucky Educator License issued by the Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB) will be eligible to take graduate education courses at WKU this summer for $325 per credit hour.
(Doctoral courses are not eligible)

“The sudden transition to NTI across the state presented challenges for our school systems, teachers and students, and our educators stepped up to meet those challenges. This program builds on WKU’s strong history of educating educators and helping them prepare students—our most precious resource—to be the future of our Commonwealth.” – Dr. Corinne M. Murphy, Dean, College of Education and Behavioral Sciences.
