Hear what our students have to say...

Cherie Kelley

"I am a returning student and have a family at home and work full time. Online learning is the best way for me to finish my degree on my time frame."

Jeremy Miller

"I have wanted to go back to school to expand on my existing degree for some time. Having a family and a full-time job makes it hard to commit to on-campus classes. The ability to take classes online has increased my learning opportunities by allowing me to study remotely and work around my day-to-day responsibilities."

Thomas Garner
“WKU Online has been a great opportunity for me. I was able to transfer KCTCS degree credits and still 'attend' WKU from Lexington."
