You need some guarantee that the courses you complete on exchange will fit into your degree program. Therefore, before leaving WKU, you are responsible for completing a written advising agreement with the assistance of your academic advisor. You should select all the potential courses you might take during your period of exchange. For flexibility, identify two or three times as many courses as you will actually take.
The advising agreement should indicate where each course will fit into your degree program. Your advisor should sign the form agreeing that satisfactorily completed courses will fit into your degree program in the manner determined. A copy of the signed advising agreement should be retained by you, your advisor, and the WKU NSE Coordinator. The WKU NSE Coordinator will forward a copy of the written agreement to the WKU Registrar to place in your permanent record.
Without a signed advising agreement before exchange, WKU may not accept the work you completed at your host college or university. Any deviation from your advising agreement should be approved with your advisor before enrollment at your host institution.
Registration and Course Access
After you sign your placement acceptance, you will receive registration information from your host campus. Registration is accomplished by phone, mail or Internet before your arrival on campus. It is important that you follow instructions and deadlines provided by your host Study Away NSE Coordinator. Registration in courses is based on availability and offerings and cannot be guaranteed.
