Summer Financial Aid Information

Big E Central of Eastern Kentucky University will begin sending Summer 2024 Award Notices by email in mid-April. Once you receive your award email, you may go onto your myEKU account and accept your awards.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Have a current 2023-24 FAFSA listing EKU as one of the schools you wish to attend.
  • Be enrolled at least half-time to receive a federal student loan (6 hrs. for undergraduate students, 4.5 hrs. for graduate students)
  • Be in compliance with the standards of EKU’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy**Satisfactory Academic Progress will not be reviewed until after Spring 2024 grades are posted in May. It is possible for someone to receive a summer award notice prior to May only to have it revoked after academic progress is reviewed.
  • Students that received their maximum annual Direct Loan amount during the Fall 2023 and/or Spring 2024 semesters, will NOT be eligible for Direct Loan funds during the Summer 2024 semester.
  •  If you withdraw after funds have been disbursed to you, you could be required to return/repay some of those funds to EKU as well as lose future aid eligibility due to lack of Satisfactory Academic Progress.
