Regional Campuses

More than 20,000 students grace WKU’s four campus locations in Bowling Green, Elizabethtown-Fort Knox, Glasgow, and Owensboro. For more than 50 years, WKU has offered courses beyond the Bowling Green campus at regional locations. WKU serves students at three regional campuses in Elizabethtown-Fort Knox, Glasgow and Owensboro. Two of the principal goals for WKU’s Regional Campuses are to provide access to higher education and to improve the quality of life in the communities they serve.

The WKU Regional Campuses are home to many highly ranked and nationally-recognized academic programs and award-winning faculty. WKU's Regional Campuses offer more than 45 associate degrees, bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, and certificate programs. Courses are offered in a variety of flexible delivery methods to meet student’s needs: face-to-face, interactive video services (IVS), and distance learning such as online and on demand.

Why Choose a Regional Campus?

WKU’s Regional Campuses offer students an affordable and convenient way to earn a degree close to home. The campuses provide a friendly and nurturing environment, small class sizes, and personal attention from faculty and staff. Each campus is a one-stop shop and student focused to help students start and finish their degree. Since most of the students at our regional campuses are the first in their family to attend college, our faculty and staff are committed to connecting you to the resources necessary to help you succeed in the classroom, on the job, and in life. In fact, our students often tell us that they feel part of a family at each regional campus location.

But, don’t take our word for it. Experience the Spirit of WKU by visiting a regional campus near you, sitting in on a class, chatting with students and professors, or talking one-on-one with an academic advisor. Contact us today to schedule a visit. We can talk in person, via phone or online, so let us know how we can assist you. Our teams are here to help you reach your educational and career goals.

Student Life

The WKU Regional Campuses understand it’s a choice to attend college and it’s a choice of which college to attend. Our regional campuses have been the university of choice for literally thousands of citizens in the region for a variety of reasons. The campuses provide many with the chance to stay close to home saving students time and money, while allowing convenient access to family, work, and community commitments. Also, students want and expect high quality programs and a campus environment that nurtures, challenges and builds camaraderie in and out of the classroom. Whatever their reasons, students are excited to embark on their college journey when they choose to attend a regional campus. They are what make our campuses so special.
