KIIS adheres to all of the applicable regulations of its Sponsoring Institution, Western Kentucky University (WKU) and utilizes WKU’s academic and accreditation standards from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).


Approximately three weeks after the completion of a study abroad program, your grades will be posted on your KIIS account.


Official Transcripts are sent automatically from the WKU Registrar to the institution listed in your KIIS account at the time of your application; you do not need to take any additional steps. Please note that transcripts cannot be sent earlier than the dates listed below.

Your home institution (Registrar or Study Abroad office) will require additional time on its end to process your KIIS-WKU transcript once received.

KIIS does not release a transcript for any student with an outstanding KIIS balance.

Transcript Request

If you are transferring to another institution (e.g. graduate school) after your KIIS program, you will need to contact the WKU Registrar directly to request your transcript be sent to an additional institution. You will need your WKU ID, found in your KIIS account, to complete the transcript request.


“Don’t get stuck thinking that studying abroad isn’t feasible; when you first step off your plane onto foreign soil, you won’t regret it.”

-Quinn, Spain May
