Parent Information


The studying part sounds great, but the abroad part may sound a bit scarier. We understand that you may have reservations about sending your son or daughter to earn credit in a new place, but the Honors College at WKU is here to help you every step of the way. We will give you and your student all the information needed to get started, and be there to help with questions or concerns, both during preparation and while your student is abroad.


Mark Knecht, father of Katie Knecht (Harlaxton, Spring 2010)

"Any normal parent is going to have concerns, but the Honors College seemed to be very organized, so that helped alleviate the fears. They were very thorough with information, and preparation was a lot easier because of it. They let me know as soon as Katie arrived, before she even had the chance to contact me.”
