Benefits of Joint Admissions

plus signCollaborative Academic Advising

A Joint Admissions student will benefit from collaborative academic advising with WKU academic advisors in his/her intended major(s). This allows you to make the most efficient use of time and tuition dollars by taking courses that work for your community college degree and your WKU bachelor’s degree. You can earn both degrees in less time and save on the costs of higher education.

plus signFixed Degree Plan

When admitted as a Joint Admissions student, your catalog term and general education requirements are locked in and will not change. This includes courses specific to your major and general education requirements. Simply stated, if WKU changes courses required for your degree after you have been admitted, those changes will not apply to you. Your WKU academic advisor will play a crucial role in assisting you with your degree plan. Remember to make an advising appointment with a WKU academic advisor early and meet with them often.

These services include financial aid advising, career counseling, leadership training, library/research facilities, and computer lab/technology.  Find out more information about how to use these resources!
