Topper Orientation Program FAQS

TOP is an orientation program required for all freshmen planning to register for classes at WKU in Glasgow. TOP helps you become more familiar with Western Kentucky University and provides an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, and receive a copy of your class schedule.

Reservations for TOP made through the Application Management Portal.

At least one week prior to your TOP, you need to request that your high school send us your official transcript. While a final high school transcript (with graduation date) will be necessary eventually, you can send an in-progress document for scheduling if you have not graduated before your TOP date. You can send us your final transcript after graduation.

If you completed colleges courses while in high school, official transcripts must be sent directly from the college awarding the credit to WKU by mail or through the National Student Clearinghouse. Once your official transcript is received, we will add your college work to your WKU record.  WKU does not award credit for college courses posted on your high school transcript.

For information on how to send your documents to our office, click here.

We offer individual TOP sessions if you are unable to attend a group session. Call (270) 861-6900 to schedule a date.
There is no fee for WKU in Glasgow students to attend TOP on our campus. If you receive a message requesting for you to pay for TOP,  please call (270) 861-6900 and ask that an Academic Advisor update your student record to show you plan to attend in Glasgow.
Feel free to bring your parents! 
From your application management portal, you can complete a Change of Major form.
