WKU Online Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduate Banner

WKU offers a wide array of online undergraduate degree programs at the bachelor’s and associate’s levels. Majors include health, business, leadership, criminology, technology, and family services, just to name a few. Our online bachelor degrees have been ranked among the top 5 in the nation for three consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report. This ranking is based on student engagement, faculty credentials, student services and technology, and reputation.

WKU offers two 100% online associate degrees that only require one meeting each week. Associate degrees can be earned in as little as two years. In addition, with proper planning, an associate of science or associate of arts may count toward a four–year bachelor’s degree.
WKU’s online bachelor degrees have been recognized as being among the top in the nation for three consecutive years. As a regionally accredited state university, you can be assured a quality education. Courses are taught by the same faculty who teach on-campus, and there are 14 bachelor degrees available 100% online. Students may also complete minors and/or certificates online as part of their bachelor's degree program. For those who have previous hours earned or can enroll in a combination of course delivery formats, there are additional options available.
Currently, there is one online undergraduate post-baccalaureate program offered online – Pre-SLP (speech language pathology). This program is designed to prepare those who hold a bachelor’s degree, but have limited academic background in Communication Sciences and Disorders for entry to the online master’s program in speech language pathology.
The Colonnade Program (formerly general education) is a set of classes designed for all students seeking a bachelor's degree at WKU. Associate degree programs also require completion of some Colonnade courses. Colonnade can be completed 100% online for most majors, including all online degree programs.
With subjects including Healthcare, Arts & Sciences, Human Services, and Education, WKU Online offers something for everyone.
