Voluntary

Any WKU student that does not qualify for a retention program may choose to voluntarily participate to receive additional academic support. These students must adhere to the same requirements as other retention program students. Generally, students opt-in to BEP voluntarily to increase their GPA's to qualify for scholarships, fraternities, sororities, departmental program requirements, etc. Other reasons to voluntarily participate include: developing positive study habits, improving time management skills, and increasing overall academic performance.

Students agree to:

  • Attend BEP Workshops to plan for the semester and to improve academic skills to make them better students.
    • Workshop #1 (part A and part B) must be completed by October 17, 2014.
    • Workshop #2 (part A and part B) must be completed by December 5, 2014.
  • Attend the Majors and Minors Fair on Tuesday, September 16th 11:00am – 2:00pm at the Preston Center.
  • Complete MAP-Works® Fall Transition Survey by September 27, 2014.
    • Survey is emailed to your Toppermail on September 14, 2014.
  • Compose a reflection paper detailing the overall BEP experience. This paper is due at the end of the semester before finals week.
  • Allow parents/guardians to inquire about their academic progress, grades, attendance, etc.
