Summer Financial Aid Information

Big E Central of Eastern Kentucky University will begin sending Summer 2023 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¬†2022-23¬†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 2023 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 2022 and/or Spring 2023 semesters, will NOT be eligible for Direct Loan funds during the Summer 2023 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.
