Summer Sessions partners with the WKU Dual Credit Program to provide high school students with the opportunity to earn credit during the summer months. Classes currently take place at the Glasgow Regional Campus and through the WKU University College.
This program is designed to allow students to take their required developmental English, math, and reading classes early to ensure that they will be better prepared for college when they begin in the fall semester.
Cost and Session Information
Tuition for a course taken through Dual Credit is $210 ($70 per credit hour). This is a substantial savings as the tuition for WKU courses that are not part of Dual Credit is $1,143 per course. It is important to note that the tuition for the course does not include the cost of textbooks, which varies depending on the course.
(There is no longer an application fee for dual credit students.)
