Apply to the Honors College
Please read the following information before starting the Application for Admission. When you are ready, go directly to the Application.
Honors College applicants must have been admitted for general admission to WKU before completing the Honors College application. Apply for general admission to WKU.
In order to apply to the Honors College, you must have previously logged into WKU’s TopNet system and stepped through the initial setup process. If you have never logged into TopNet and are not currently enrolled, you will need to use your 800 number (WKUID) to access TopNet. If you do not know your 800 number, you can retrieve it online.
The Honors College Application for Admission is only available online and consists of several components: Validation of Academic Information, Activities Summary, Short Answer Questions, Essays and Letters of Recommendation. All application materials must be submitted using the online application; supplemental materials, such as resumes, will not be accepted. Transcripts are not required for Honors College admission because we access and review the transcripts submitted for your general application to WKU. Read more about the application components and other useful hints.
