September 2021 Dual Credit Update
September 2021 Dual Credit Update:
Congratulations, you are over ¼ of the way through the Fall 2021 semester. Make sure to stay on top of your studies as the rest of the semester seems to move quickly.
I have listed below several important items. If you have any questions regarding anything in this update, please do not hesitate to contact the Dual Credit office by replying to this email or calling 859-622-6532.
Students who plan to be on campus will need an ID (required for library entrance). You can find more information about ordering your ID here.
Remember to use your EKU email! EKU email is the official form of communication.
KHEAA Dual Credit scholarships have not been applied. The high school deadline for the State Scholarships runs into October; so, we are projecting that the KHEAA scholarships will be applied in early November. We will inform students when the scholarships have been applied to their accounts. Accounts may show late fees at this time; however, these will be removed when accounts are correct. Dual credit students are not responsible for paying late fees.
Four Week Progress Report:
Most students should have a four-week progress report waiting in EKU Direct. The progress reports do not replace mid-terms, but indicate whether a student’s work is satisfactory or unsatisfactory as of four weeks into the semester. Students receive an email notifying them of the progress report, but the report must be accessed through EKU Direct. If you received anything other than Satisfactory, your high school counselor was notified.

Fall 2021 Mid-Term grades will be viewable in EKU Direct as of October 5th. Please do not assume your Blackboard grades are correct. Your official mid-term and final grades will be posted in EKU Direct.
Students concerned about their academic progress in a course should always consult with their instructor and high school counselor before withdrawing. The instructor may be able to advise the student on how to complete the course successfully. Your high school counselor needs to make certain that students are still meeting their high school requirements for graduation. The absolute last day to withdraw from a full-term class is November 7th (check the Colonel’s Compass for 8-week term deadlineswww.colonelscompass.eku.edu ). Students may withdraw online through EKU Direct. Any students that experience an issue withdrawing should contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the deadline. You can also call our office Monday through Friday until November 5th for assistance.
Spring Dual Credit Application Deadline:
Students currently taking courses do not need to apply for the spring semester. If you know of someone not currently participating in EKU Dual Credit, applications for Spring 2022 are due by November 19th. Transcripts and ACT scores should accompany new applications.
