Fall 2020 TOP Information

As WKU continues to take steps to protect all members of our community—including future Hilltoppers like you—we have made the decision to make our April, May, June, and July  TOP days virtual and online.   

Students who want to participate in virtual/online TOP will have two (2) options for completing your Freshman TOP: a live virtual session or through online modules.

Option 1 *Preferred*: Attend your virtual TOP Live session.This is the preferred option. During TOP Live you will learn about your next steps as a Hilltopper, hear from a Financial Aid representative, and learn more about academic advising. Please plan for at least an hour and a half of uninterrupted time to complete TOP Live. At the end of TOP Live, you will receive instructions on how to contact your academic advisor and register for fall 2020 classes!

Registration is now available for TOP Live sessions. If you have registered for a TOP date, please go ahead and register for your TOP Live session using the link provided in the confirmation email sent to you. 

Option 2:Visit TOP Online to complete Freshman TOP Online modules. Once you log in, click “Freshman”. Follow the instructions on screen for an introduction to Freshman TOP Online.  Be sure to complete all sections. At the end of Freshman TOP Online, you will receive instructions on how to contact your academic advisor and register for fall 2020 classes! You will not be able to access TOP Online until your scheduled window.

The fee for Online/Virtual TOP is $25. Students who have already registered and paid for their on-campus TOP will receive credit towards their Fall 2020 bill on TopNet for the difference if they choose to complete Online/Virtual TOP. For students who completed TOP on April 15, April 22, April 29, or May 6 this credit will be applied to accounts in late May 2020.

The class registration process will not change, and we guarantee students will receive the classes they need, regardless of the date their TOP takes place.

If you are unable to complete Freshman TOP Online, one of the virtual TOP Live sessions, or have questions about your transition to WKU, please email top@wku.edu
