MPC: Master Plan Commuter Program

About MPC

MPC is a two-day orientation program designed to help you, the first year Commuter student, successfully transition from home and high school to college. As an MPC participant, you'll gain valuable information and resources, benefit from the opportunity to engage with current WKU students, faculty, and staff, and form social connections with other first year Commuter students before classes even start!

"MPC," M.A.S.T.E.R Plan's Commuter program, addresses the transitional needs of first year Commuter students. If you're planning to commute to and from WKU's main campus during your first year on the hill, then MPC is for you!
