The Graduate School at WKU provides advanced students the opportunity to study, conduct research, and contribute to their academic field. 

The Graduate Catalog in its entirety represents University Policy (Policy 1.0004) which must be followed and met before a credential is awarded. The Associate Provost for Research and Graduate Education is charged with the administration of Graduate School policies and certifies that candidates have fulfilled their requirements for advanced degrees and certificates. The Associate Provost for Research and Graduate Education is advised by the Graduate Council, a standing committee of the Faculty Senate. The University reserves the right to make changes as necessary in course offerings, curricula, academic policies, rules and regulations. The student is responsible for knowing and fulfilling all degree and certificate related requirements. Appeals of Graduate Policies are considered by the Associate Provost for Research and Graduate Education.

WKU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
