Total Enrollment Up; Significant Gains in Diversity
 
As it increases in total enrollment, Eastern is growing more diverse.

Preliminary fall enrollment figures at the University show significant increases in African American and Latino students. The growth in underrepresented populations has, in large part, fueled an increase in overall numbers. As of Aug. 26, a total of 16,454 students had enrolled for fall classes at EKU, up 1.8 percent from the same date a year ago and coming at a time of slowing of growth in the number of high school graduates.

 Things you need to know!!!!!!

Withdrawing and Financial Aid:

Federal Financial Aid regulations require students to earn credit from classes funded by financial aid.  Financial aid regulations do not distinguish between receiving a “W” in a course, or an “F” in a course.  In both cases tuition is paid with financial aid funds and in both cases the student did not earn credit. Students, advisors, and instructors should note therefore that multiple withdraws can impede appropriate progress toward degree and thus negatively impact a student’s ability to retain financial aid.
