March 2020 Update

EKU Dual Credit Update

Here is hoping that everyone has done well on their mid-terms!  Below 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, you can log in as a first-time user.  Your User ID will be your EKU ID and you created your PIN.  You can also log in as a current student using your EKU email login and password.  If you have trouble logging in, contact the IT Help Desk at 859-622-3000.  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 9th – March 13th. Classes will resume March 16th.   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 5th.  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 5th, 2020.  If you need assistance with this process, you will need to contact our office or a Regional Campus prior to April 3rd.

Account Balances – Scholarships for the spring are in the process of being applied. We will let you know when this process is complete.  Fall 2020 scholarships have been assigned in student accounts.

Textbook Charges – Please check your EKU Direct account to see if you have any textbook charges. Remember, the state scholarships do not 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 Payment – All payments will need to be completed 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 the Student Accounting 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 at:

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

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