EKU Dual Credit - Online Dual Credit Courses for Fall 2018

Below, you will find the course descriptions for the EKU Dual Credit online offerings for Fall 2018 in which we are currently reserving spaces.   If you have students wishing to enroll in any of these sections, please email me their names.  There are limited spaces available in each section and spaces in these classes will be reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis.   Students with complete applications and who meet the EKU Dual Credit participation criteria by June 15 will be given precedence over students with outstanding application requirements and test scores. 

Due to an increased demand for online courses:

  1. Students who apply online after the application deadline of June 15th may not receive the course(s) they have chosen and may have a reduced selection of courses from which to choose.
  2. Students who do not qualify before the June ACT, may not receive the course(s) they have chosen and may have a reduced selection of courses from which to choose.

FORMER EKU STUDENTS:  
If any students suspect that their grade is incorrect, they should contact their instructor immediately.

If any juniors who received a D or an F want to continue in the program, they will need to petition the Registrar’s Office to repeat that course.  I have included the instructions for that process below.

 

Mr. Nathan Congleton, EKU's Associate Registrar, has requested that any Dual Credit student wishing to retake a course email him directly at Nathan.congleton@eku.edu . Please address the following in the email.

 

1.  Why do you feel that you were unsuccessful in the course the first time you took it?

2.  What has changed that makes you believe that retaking the course at this time will permit you to be successful?

3.  What actions are you going to take to assure that you are successful in the course this time around?

4.  Include your name and ID number.

 

As there is a limited number of times that any student can retake a course, this process was put into place to make certain that the matter is thoroughly considered.    
 

Any repeated courses will be charged at $53 per credit hour in Fall 2018.  Dual Credit scholarships do not apply.
