For assistance with registration or questions about your certificate, contact LL@wku.edu or (270) 745-3120 (alternate number (270) 745-1912). This is the contact information for the Lifelong Learning program area within WKU Continuing & Professional Development- the administrative support for this workshop series. For questions about the content of the workshops, we will be happy to refer your questions to the best contact in the Department of Counseling and Student Affairs.

Individuals must complete registration, attend at least 75% of the duration, and submit an evaluation for each workshop in order to receive a certificate indicating the continuing education credit earned. These steps are required to meet the grant reporting requirements.

Am email with the link to the evaluation will be sent to those who met the 75% attendance criteria following each workshop. Use the link to access and complete the evaluation. Our goal is to send the email by the end of the next business day following the workshop.

The system is set to send a confirmation at the time of registration, a reminder one day before the workshop, and a reminder one hour before the workshop. Each of these emails will include Zoom information for live remote/online workshops. You may not have received emails if

  1. The emails went to an incorrect email address (email LL@wku.edu and request assistance to change your email address)
  2. The emails went to your spam or junk folder (locate the emails in these folders and mark them as NOT junk or spam in order to ensure that you receive future emails)

If you do not have a NetID, close the browser window/tab and open your Zoom application. On the Home screen, click the option to Join. Enter the Meeting ID and Join. Note that you will be asked to "register" as you join the workshop. This is for attendance tracking purposes. It is not required, but helpful, if you enter your name as you did in the registration system and/or as you would like for it to appear on your certificate.

Click here to be directed to the registration system account login screen.

In your initial account creation confirmation email, you received a username (WK#######). Use this username and the password you created to log in. If you do not remember your username OR password, click the Forgot button. Then, enter your email address. You will receive an email with your username and a link to complete the password reset process. It may take the system up to 12 minutes to generate emails, so please allow sufficient time.

Certificates for each workshop are created as a batch. Please bear with us as we allow time for participants to complete all of the criteria. Our goal is to distribute certificates within two weeks of the workshop.
