Resources for School Counselors

As a school counselor, your students look to you for information and advice as they take their next step. You’re their guide on the road to post-high school success. Just as you’re here to help them, Eastern Kentucky University is here to help you. Browse this page for important information that you – and your students – might want to know about becoming a Colonel.


Our simple application process is the first step to becoming a Colonel. Students will need to submit:

Freshman Admission Standards

Standard Admission: 2.5 or greater high school cumulative GPA (unweighted)

Success First Admission: 2.00-2.49 high school cumulative GPA (unweighted)

*All students must have a minimum high school GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. While test scores are not required for admissions purposes, students are encouraged to submit test scores for proper course placement in English and mathematics courses.
