Admission to degree programs at WKU is based on approved admission requirements as listed in the Graduate Catalog. Applicants are required to submit their application online and send in all additional supporting materials to the Graduate School. After the applicant submits the required documents, an admission packet is sent via eSignature to the designated admission coordinator for the program. The department makes an admission decision and forwards the decision to the Graduate School. After the Graduate School receives the admission decision, notification is sent to the applicant via US mail and email. Applicants who are admitted are placed in Good Standing and can register for courses. Instructions on how to use the eSignature system are below.
Please supply any conditional admission requirements in as much detail as possible in the "Conditional Admit Requirements:" box.
For any Rejection decisions, a reject explanation needs to be included.
Any "Departmental Comments" may be added.
