Track Progress Toward Your Degree


Once enrolled as a degree seeking student at WKU, you and your advisor will use a tool in TopNet called iCAP. iCAP is an acronym for Interactive Curriculum and Academic Progress. As a student, you also have access to this tool under the Student Services tab in TopNet. iCAP does not replace your advisor; however, it can help you track your progress. You can request personalized, interactive audits that display progress toward your degree. iCAP will also allow you to run a "what if" audit, so you can see how your earned credits will count toward a different major, should you decide to change majors. Please be advised that there are overarching university requirements that must be met to receive a degree. These requirements can be viewed on the Degree Certification website.

iCAP Capabilities:

  • Shows completed coursework including grades and hours earned
  • Displays transfer work and applies it to degree requirements
  • Provides a list of “Select From” courses for easy course selection
  • Calculates overall total hours and GPA
  • Calculates major/minor hours and GPA
  • Indicates missing requirements
  • Allows students to run “What-If” audits to compare coursework against other majors and minors

What iCAP Cannot Do:

  • Check for prerequisites or corequisites
  • Automatically apply transfer coursework without an equivalency
  • Allow students to change majors, minors, or concentrations
  • Serve as an advisor
  • Allow courses with “0” hours to fulfill requirements (Labs, etc.)
  • Show test scores
