FERPA Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 is in effect - regardless of age. Once a person is admitted as a student to a college or university, regardless of age, FERPA rights revert from parent to student. This means information can only be communicated to the student.

Juniors will need to reapply for their senior year.

A student can give written permission authorizing an individual(s) to have view only access to their EKU Direct information.

EKU Student Billing Mid-terms Grades Final Grades

First Day Attendance

• • First day of class –


If you do not attend the first day of class, the instructor can drop you from the class for non-attendance. This policy also applies to online classes. • Students who know they will be absent should contact their instructor or the academic department office PRIOR TO THE FIRST CLASS to explain their absence and request that the instructor NOT drop them from the class.

Withdrawing From or Dropping a Class If you have to quit coming to class, you must WITHDRAW from or DROP your class.

 Within the first 4 weeks this must be done by the student through EKU Direct account. After 4 weeks, consult your instructor and submit the correct form to the EKU Dual Credit administrative office.

 Detailed directions for withdrawing from, or dropping a class, is in folder.



If you do not withdraw or drop the class you will receive an F, this stays on your transcript and makes being admitted as a freshman difficult. This can also have a negative impact on receiving financial aid as an incoming  

LAST DAY TO ADD/DROP = August 24, 2014 LAST DAY TO WITHDRAW = November 7, 2014

Academic Success

Class Syllabus – Keep, read, and follow! An instructor may change syllabus at any time.

Focus – Prepare for class, complete assignments on time, and pay attention in class (take notes, turn off cell phones, participate, be courteous).

Disruptive Behavior in Class – This can prevent other students from learning. You can face disciplinary measures from the instructor and/or the university.

Academic Integrity

• Cheating is defined as “an act or attempted act of deception by which a student seeks to misrepresent that he/she has mastered information on an academic exercise that he/she has not mastered.” • Cheating may occur on an exam, test, quiz, laboratory work report, theme, out of class assignment or any other work submitted by a student to fulfill course requirements and presented as solely the work of the student (this includes facilitation of academic dishonesty).

• •

Academic Integrity

Plagiarism is defined as, “intentionally or knowingly representing the words of another, as one’s own in any academic exercise.” Plagiarism is CHEATING and penalties range from simply affecting your grade to dismissal from the University.

The Center for Academic Integrity:

Class Attendance

• • • • Be there – Be on time! Most classes require 90% attendance (arriving late usually counts as ½ class absence; leaving early may count as a whole class absence).

Please check the course syllabus and speak to the instructor regarding the departmental attendance policy. It can vary by class and instructor.

You can fail a course even if you have a passing grade by not following the attendance policy. You still have to attend your EKU Dual Credit class while on break at your high school. Please remember this before making vacation plans, etc…
