 It is important for you to review your iCAP - What is an iCAP Audit? iCAP is an acronym for interactive Curriculum and Academic Progress. An iCAP Audit show all the requirements needed to fulfill all of your degree requirements for WKU, including: GPA, major/minor, general education/colonnade, and university requirements. Students may also run "What-If" audits to compare current coursework to other majors. Click here for a Step by Step Guide.
