A Graduate Assistant Program was created in 1960 which was expanded in 1962 when WKU was authorized to offer 30 hours over the Masters Degree. The Graduate School was created for all disciplines by the Board of Regents in 1964. The push for university status led to the creation of the Graduate Division in 1965. In 1969 the Graduate School was renamed Graduate College. In 1966 a joint doctoral program was created with the University of Kentucky. In 1967 a joint doctoral program was created with then Peabody College (Vanderbilt University). WKU Graduate Studies & Research was renamed The Graduate School July 26, 2013.
