Applying to and Visiting the Geology Program

Become a Geology Student

To get started with Geology in either the undergraduate or graduate program, you first need to register through the Admissions office. There you can select your incoming status (first time, transfer, graduate student, etc.)
Once you have registered and have received your WKU ID number (e.g. 800 ## ###), you can start your orientation.

Upon your arrival at WKU, you will go through an orientation and Ogden College of Science and Engineering meeting. At the end of that meeting, a Geology Professor will be there to pick you up for advising. At that point you may declare Geology as your major.

See you then!

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Fred Siewers or 270-745-6891, or any other geology faculty member.
