Coronavirus (COVID-19)

WKU continues to monitor the situation and activate contingency plans to best protect members of the WKU family and the communities in which we live.

The following information is subject to change. Please continue to check this website for the most up-to-date information:

  • All in person spring 2020 classes have transitioned to alternative delivery formats. Students needing additional information or clarification can contact the Office of the Provost.
  • All in-person events for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester must be postponed, canceled, or virtualized. Degrees will still be conferred in May to students who complete all the required coursework this semester. In-person commencement celebrations will take place at a later date.
  • For summer 2020, WKU will offer only online courses or those that include synchronous activities delivered with no personal contact, such as practicums, theses and dissertation hours.
