Advising In Organizational Leadership

Undergraduate Advising for Organizational Leadership

Welcome!  We believe that we are here to help advise you in picking your classes, and towards your graduation. However, we want YOU to take ownership of your education. In that regard, we have an Advising Worksheet that we ask you to fill out before coming to your advising appointment. On this worksheet you will answer a few questions, and pick out at least four classes plus two alternates. 

It is also important for you to review your iCAP - 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.

Graduate Advising for Organizational Leadership

Our master’s program consists of six core and four elective classes. The core classes provide a foundation in organizational leadership while the electives allow you to focus in a specific area or take courses that best fit your professional goals. The Graduate School requires each student to file a Program Form at the beginning of your studies and will place a registration hold on accounts that do not have Program Forms on file. To preclude the registration hold, we have students file a Program Form knowing we will have to change this form. During your final semester, we will update your Program Form to match the courses that you actually took.

We recommend you take LEAD 500 first. You are not required to take the courses in a specific order, but we do advise that you identify early which electives you would like to take, so you can take them as they are offered. Advising for the graduate Certificate is the same as above with students required to take LEAD 500, LEAD 600, and two electives, usually from their master’s program, with approval from the Organizational Leadership Advisors.
