Professional Education Admissions Orientation Meetings

All students who wish to enter WKU’s Professional Educational program must attend a mandatory Orientation Session. This is also a major requirement before being assigned to any school district to complete clinical fieldwork for all School of Teacher Education courses.

This applies to new transfer students in a program leading to teacher certification and students in their first introductory education course.

There are no make-up orientation meetings available during the semester, so please make plans to attend one of these dates. This is a requirement to be admitted in the Professional Education program.

  • Students must pre-register for the session they plan to attend. There are limited seats available for the WKU location. So, be sure to pre-register before attending.
  • Attendance will be taken at each session and reported to the instructors of introductory courses.
  • Students who have pre-registered for orientation will receive a Zoom link via email two days prior to their selected date. We encourage those who have never used Zoom to try it out prior to the meeting to help minimize any technical issues during the orientation. If you experience technical difficulties during your scheduled time and are unable to access the orientation you can pre-register for another date.
