Admission Requirements

Starting your bachelor's degree program can be completed by following the steps below:

  • Apply for admission*
  • Submit Required Materials:
    • Beginning Freshmen: An officialhigh school transcript (no faxed transcripts accepted) and ACT or SAT scores. Students over the age of 21 may substitute the ACCUPLACER for ACT/SAT.
    • Transfer Students: Send your official transcripts from each college attended to Undergraduate Admissions: 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.

*Adult learners who have fewer than 24 credit hours earned and a high school GPA below 2.5 should refer to the alternate admission guidelines available at wku.edu/online/admission.php.
