Just What Is a Cohort Program?

by Crissy Priddy

Even as WKU’s Cohort Program coordinator, I struggle to define it when asked by friends and family.

In its simplest form, a cohort is a group. It’s a group of student peers and mentors aligned around the dream to complete a specific structured degree program together.

The Cohort Program team makes the connections. We guide students through the process from application to graduation.

We help students gather the necessary requirements for admission. We enroll them in required courses for a guaranteed seat. No more getting up early to register for that one class! We take care of all the processes so students can focus on the classes.


To the Students
We strive to create quality college credit programs regardless of institutional boundaries.

The open Cohort Programs provide a unique opportunity for you to complete coursework with those who share your passion for the subject of study while earning your degree — together. For a list of programs please visit our website.

To the Partners
We partner with business, industry and community groups to develop customized courses, certificates and degree programs that meet your needs.

Together, we’ll identify the expectations, responsibilities and costs to create a custom program that works best for your group.We’ll than create a memorandum of agreement and begin enrolling your group in WKU!

Our success stories include program designs for Kingsford Charcoal to the National Association of Gifted Studies. Here’s a complete list of our past partners and projects.

Let us know how we can work with you!
