WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY: Following evolving guidance from the CDC and our health policy collaborators, WKU will implement the following contingency plans:


  • WKU will continue to deliver instruction via alternate delivery formats through the end of the spring semester, with no face-to-face instruction occurring the remainder of this academic term.


  • We strongly encourage ALL students who can go home to do so. Very limited University housing will remain open for the remainder of the semester; and only for those students who demonstrate the need to remain on campus. A Request for Exemption to Remain in University Housing form will be available soon.


  • We will have more information about move-out plans in the next 48 hours, along with a refund schedule for housing and dining. Please, do not begin to move out on your own without coordination with your hall director. It’s important that we work together to strategically facilitate this movement in order to maximize social distancing.


  • All in-person events for the remainder of the semester must be cancelled, postponed or virtualized.


  • All spring commencement events are postponed. Rest assured we will celebrate appropriately and honor our students’ extraordinary work and achievements at a future date. We will confer degrees in May, ensuring students graduate on time and are prepared to enter the workforce or continue into their graduate work as planned.
