WKU has a Joint Admissions program with several area community colleges to help you make the transition into a four-year university while you are completing your associate degree. This program is for students with one or more semesters remaining at a community college.
Joint Admissions simply means you are admitted to both your community college and WKU at the same time as you work toward your community college degree. The Joint Admissions program provides a seamless transition from an associate’s degree to a bachelor’s degree. Students who choose to participate in WKU’s Joint Admissions program will have all the information they need to complete a bachelor's degree most efficiently.
