Parent & Family Programs


Welcome, Hilltopper Families!

As a proud WKU alumna, I want to welcome you to the Hilltopper family! We value each Hilltopper family as we work toward our shared goal of supporting the academic and life goals of every student. We recognize the vital role parents and family members play in their students' college experience;

We have designed our information on this site to provide you with campus knowledge, tools, and resources for supporting your students, as well as provide opportunities to become more involved in your students' college experience.

We know the choice of WKU as your student's university was a family decision, and that the decision to send your student to WKU has impacted your family's priorities, finances, and structure. We want you to know that your family's decision to become a part of our Hilltopper Family is a source of pride and commitment for us. We--you, me, and the thousands of other WKU faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni--are equally committed to supporting your student's success.

I hope you will consider WKU Parent and Family Programs your first stop for WKU resources. Let it become your hub for information, referrals, and support. We look forward to serving you and your students.
