Student FAQ's for Spring 2020 Grading
Regarding Pass/D/Fail (PDF)
Because of accreditation, licensure, endorsement, or certification requirements, “P”
grades are not acceptable in certain programs. Consult your department if you have
additional questions. Students who are taking courses at WKU to complete high school
requirements must receive a letter grade for their coursework. In addition, students
in on demand courses will not receive the PDF option.
WKU is committed to delivering learning opportunities that fit your life! We achieve this through the delivery of flexible courses, degree programs and student support services for prospective and current online learners.
Online courses are delivered via the internet using Blackboard LMS. The difference lies in the calendar!
- Web classes are semester-based, online classes that follow the same schedule as face-to-face courses - they have specific start and end dates with terms beginning in the fall, winter, spring, and summer. The campus location is listed as "web" in Topnet. Most web classes do not require any face-to-face meetings. However, the professor may require as many as two and still list the class as a web class. If any meetings are required, they will be listed in the "blue notes" just below the class section in the schedule of classes. If this is a concern for you, please contact WKU Online prior to registration at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-4WKUWEB
- On demand classes provide students the opportunity to earn college credit when and where it is convenient for them. The campus location is listed as "On Demand" in TopNet. There are more than 100 undergraduate and graduate flex-paced courses available completely online. Students have the option to accelerate course completion by finishing in as little as 7 weeks or take advantage of an extended time frame. Visit wku.edu/online.

Colonnade Program (General Education)
The Colonnade Program (formerly general education) is a set of classes designed for all students seeking a bachelor's degree at WKU. The curriculum was created with an aim to develop understanding, appreciation, and acceptance of multiple "ways of knowing," including artistic, literary, philosophical, historical, and scientific. WKU provides an online pathway for completion of general education/colonnade curriculum. Please work with your advisor or refer to the guides below to identify online options:
