ATP Parent Program

 Welcome to Parent ATP at WKU!

Whether you are an alumni or your student is the first to be college bound in you family, participating in Parent ATP will provide plenty of information and new connections to campus.  Through information sessions and our Question and Answer Panel, you will learn: what it means to be a Hilltopper, how students can succeed on The Hill, the details of applying for Financial Aid, housing requirements, and about other offices on campus.  Parent ATP is not a required program, but the benefits you will receive from attending is more than worth your while. 

A typical ATP program for students occurs from approximately 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and while you will not be with your student all day, you can expect to be busy for most of the day as well.  Please explore our website for more details!
