March 2019 Dual Credit Update

March 2019

EKU Dual Credit Update

Here is hoping that everyone has done well on their mid-terms!  Here is some important information to keep in mind as you move forward in the race to the finish!

Mid-terms –Mid-term grades are currently viewable in EKU Direct. If you have not been in EKU Direct in a while, your User ID is your EKU ID and you created your PIN.  Please check EKU Direct and do not rely upon Blackboard. Official grades are always posted in EKU Direct and may be different than Blackboard grades. If your mid-term grade was not posted, please check with your instructor.

EKU Spring Break –Spring Break is March 11th – March 15th. Classes will resume March 18th.   Be sure to check your assignment schedule and/or syllabi.  Some instructors have assignments due during or immediately after Spring Break.  All EKU offices are closed during EKU’s spring break.

High School Spring Breaks – Don’t forget your EKU classes while on your high school spring break.  You have worked hard all semester, keep up the good work!

Withdrawal Deadline – Just a reminder that the withdrawal deadline is approaching – April 7th.  If you have spoken with your instructor and decided that your best course of action is to withdraw from your class, you can do so through EKU Direct (under Student Services and Financial Aid – Add Drop) through April 7th, 2019.  If you need assistance with this process, you will need to contact our office or a Regional Campus prior to April 7th.

Account Balances–Scholarships for the spring semester have been applied. Check your student account by logging into EKU Direct and clicking on Student Services and Financial Aid, then click on Student Financial Services and View My Account Balance. If you believe you were supposed to receive a scholarship and have not, please email us at from your student email account. Please note: due to Federal law, we cannot discuss student finances over the phone.

Textbook Charges– Please check your EKU Direct account to see if you have any textbook charges. Remember, neither EKU nor state scholarships cover these textbook charges and they will need to be paid. Textbook charges are associated with CMS 100  MUH 171 and PSY 200. There may be other courses with textbook charges as well.  Please check your account.

Invoice PaymentEffective July 1st 2018, Student Accounting Services will no longer accept payments in person.  The cashier windows will be closed.  All payments will need to made online via Touchnet in EKU Direct.  Online payments can be made with checking account (no fee) or with credit card (2.85% fee).  Any student without a credit card or checking account can visit a local bank and convert cash to a money order.  Money orders will be accepted in our office as a drop off payment and receipts will be emailed to the student EKU email address.  There will also be a drop box in the vestibule of the Whitlock lobby for after hours.  Please ensure ID numbers are listed clearly on any drop off payments.  Checks can continue to be mailed to our lockbox as well at:

Eastern Kentucky University
P.O. Box 639244
Cincinnati, OH 45263-9244

Check and money order payments are also taken at the regional campuses.
