Admission Requirements

Starting your Plus 2 Business program can be completed by following the steps below:

  • Get admitted to Western Kentucky University. You can apply here.
  • Send your official transcripts from each college attended: You may request electronic transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse. This speeds up the admissions process considerably. If your school is not listed with the Clearinghouse, please contact them directly to see if they have another process in place for electronic submissions or request that an official copy be sent by mail. Transfer students with fewer than 24 semester hours of college credit earned, must also submit high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores.

To Apply to WKU and the Plus 2 in Business Administration:

Under Planned Course of Study Section, Choose:

  1. Category of Study >>> Bachelor's Degree
  2. Planned Course of Study >>> Management – Seeking Admission

Once you have been admitted to the University, we can determine if any general education core or pre-admission courses remain for you to take.

If there are courses needed, your advisor will work with you to map out a plan to complete your pre-admission requirements and/or General Education requirements in preparation for entering the online program.
