EKU Dual Credit

EKU Assignment Due Dates- Please pay close attention to EKU assignment due dates.  Your high school schedule and EKU’s schedule may not be the same.  You are still responsible for meeting EKU assignment due dates if they fall on a date that you are not “meeting” for high school classes.

Dual Credit Applications for 2022-2023-Students who participated in 2021/22 year will not need to reapply for 2022-2023.

Final Grades– Final grades will be posted in the MyEKU account for students on Tuesday, May 10, 2022.    Do not use Blackboard for official grades.

Transcripts– To order an official transcript, go to Student accounts must be paid to order an official transcript, this includes digital texts as well. 

Invoices – Most KHEAA  Dual Credit and Work Ready scholarships have now been assigned.  Please check your EKU invoice in MyEKU.  Click on the Student Accounting Services card then click on “billing statements” to view you balance.   Remember, Dual Credit students do not need to pay late fees.  These will be removed once the balance (tuition, digital texts, parking) has been paid.   Please check your MyEKU account NOW.  If you see an issue, we need to know about it as soon as possible.  2021/22 scholarships cannot be applied to your account after June 30, 2022. 

Dual Credit Scholarships for 2022/2023- The state budget that passed during the 2022 legislative session contains language that changes the dual credit scholarship program.  Note, as part of the state budget document, the changes are only in effect for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years. 

The dual credit tuition rate ceiling will increase to one-half (50%) of the in-state per credit hour tuition amount charged by KCTCS.

*   For the 2022-2023 year, the dual credit tuition will be $91.00 per credit hour.

Students can receive Dual Credit scholarships for two general education dual credit courses each year  during the 11th and 12th grade years.   This means students who used both DC scholarships as 11th graders this year will be eligible for two more scholarships next  year to pay for general education dual credit coursework.

Students will continue to receive Work Ready Dual Credit scholarships for up to two career and technical education (CTE) dual credit courses each year.

Dual credit scholarships are available through the KHEAA Dual Credit Scholarship program or the KHEAA Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship Program.  Information on each program, including deadlines and applications, are available at the links below.

Students do not need to complete an extra scholarship application for merit scholarships.  For information on EKU merit scholarships, please visit  Also check out the Scholarship Estimator button on that page!
