Dear CIT Student:
Please be advised that effective Fall Semester 2013, the CIT program at WKU will no longer accept new admits/transfers.
Students who would like to study computer technology should consider the SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT program – with a Professional Concentration in Information Systems. CIS, CIT and CS courses may be used to fulfill the electives in this major. Students transferring with an Associate's degree from a Partner School may apply their coursework to satisfy the electives in the SM Major. Please follow up with a faculty adviser in the department to discuss alternatives and options.
For more information on the SM program please visit http://www.wku.edu/sm/
Transfer (2+2) students who are already admitted and actively enrolled in the CIT major may complete the program over the next couple of semesters (2014). CIT courses will continue to be taught over the coming year to enable timely graduation. Please contact your faculty adviser to work out a schedule of classes that will allow you to graduate.
Note: some students may need to substitute planned electives to those classes being offered.
Thank you for your interest in the Computer Information Technology program.
