All WKU classes to be online this summer

As we look ahead to summer term, which begins May 18, we must ensure everyone’s continued safety as we plan summer courses. To that end, we will only offer summer courses online or those that include synchronous activities delivered with no personal contact, such as practicums, theses and dissertation hours. It is difficult to predict when it will be safe to lift social distancing precautions, and we believe that making this decision now will give our students, faculty, and staff adequate time to make this transition.  


Topnet schedules are being updated with these changes, so please check back frequently and speak with your advisor about schedule changes. Because of this move to online for summer, the 2020 Summer Scholarship award has been increased to help cover the difference between the online rate and resident rate.

Eligible undergraduate students enrolled in six credit hours this summer, who qualify and apply for the scholarship, may receive a scholarship of $540, which lowers the net cost of those six hours to the same as the resident undergraduate rate, regardless of the student’s residency. Check here for more information:

The Summer Scholarship, paired with summer financial aid and summer Pell Grant, will provide more opportunities for students to participate in Summer Sessions, so please check with your financial aid advisor.
