Dear CIT Student:
Please be advised that effective Fall Semester 2013, the CIT program at WKU will no longer accept new admits/transfers.
Students who would like to study computer technology should consider the SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT program – with a Professional Concentration in Information Systems. CIS, CIT and CS courses may be used to fulfill the electives in this major. Students transferring with an Associate's degree from a Partner School may apply their coursework to satisfy the electives in the SM Major. Please follow up with a faculty adviser in the department to discuss alternatives and options.
For more information on the SM program please visit http://www.wku.edu/sm/
Transfer (2+2) students who are already admitted and actively enrolled in the CIT major may complete the program over the next couple of semesters (2014). CIT courses will continue to be taught over the coming year to enable timely graduation. Please contact your faculty adviser to work out a schedule of classes that will allow you to graduate.
Note: some students may need to substitute planned electives to those classes being offered.
Thank you for your interest in the Computer Information Technology program.
2+2 Transfer Student Information
Western Kentucky University (WKU) has a unique partnership with a select group of community and technical colleges that allows graduates to apply their IT degrees towards the completion of the CIT major. Under this arrangement, WKU will accept your degree as a block transfer when you are admitted — and you start the CIT program as a Junior.
There are no complicated articulation agreements, no awkward lists of classes that transfer (and many that do not). Our consortium graduates know that their associates’ degrees transfer into the CIT program directly. Check out the ‘other’ schools; there really isn’t much to compare.
Students who take advantage of this option only take (4) 300-level CIT courses and (8) 400-level electives. Your block transfer covers the rest of the major requirements.
Students must complete the A.A.S. degree before starting in the CIT program to take advantage of this partnership. WKU will not consider individual courses for transfer. If you don’t graduate…you can’t take advantage of this 2+2 option.
Students who graduate in something other than Information Technology (or CIS at IvyTech) are not eligible for the 2+2 option. Lots of college majors use computers in their curriculum and some have the word “technology” in the title. Unless it’s an IT program from a consortium partner we can’t accept your transfer credit.
Students who transfer from a partner community/technical college will need to complete WKU’s General Education requirements. These may be completed at WKU, or your local college. You will learn more about this in your CIT classes.
All CIT courses are available on-line and may be completed from anywhere in the world. The “on-demand” format of these classes is compatible with busy work and family schedules.
