You Can Start SM Today
The Systems Management major is open to all interested WKU students. Unlike some other programs, SM does not have a complicated admissions policy or require a series of prerequisite courses before letting you dive into your major. Systems Management courses are offered on every semester and you may sign up for these whenever your schedule permits. You do not need to have junior-standing or complete some number of hours to declare this major. You may start taking SM classes as early as the second semester of your Sophomore year.

WKU is pleased to partner with Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges (KCTCS) and the U.S. Army (and other branches) with the SM program.
Transfer students may apply their complete A.A., A.S., or A.A.S. degree to the SM Major. Military AARTS transcripts are also welcome.
You won’t find any complicated articulation agreements or lists of which classes may or may not transfer in the SM program. We respect the college work that you’ve completed and will work with you to map your Associates to a Bachelors degree.
Transfer students complete 8 required SM classes, 5 classes in an area of Professional
Concentration, 3 departmental electives, and complete their General Education and
other WKU graduation requirements. Many transfer students graduate in as few as 4
semesters of full-time study.
