Important EKU and EKU Dual Credit Policies EKU students do not receive paper invoices. Students must check their EKU Direct accounts for invoice information. Accounts should be accurate, with scholarships applied, as of January 28, Please check your EKU Direct Account to make certain your account is accurate. Unpaid accounts will accumulate late charges. Late charges begin to accumulate 90 days after the original due date in your EKU Direct Account. Late fees will apply to EKU Dual Credit students. This includes Late Registration Fees. You ARE responsible for the cost of textbooks, and any associated course fees. You ARE responsible for Parking Passes (Richmond campus only). FERPA Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 is in effect - regardless of age. Once a person is admitted as a student to a college or university, regardless of age, FERPA rights revert from parent to student. This means information can only be communicated to the student.

Academic Success Class Syllabus – Keep, read, and follow! An instructor may change syllabus at any time. Focus – Prepare for class, complete assignments on time, and pay attention in class (take notes, turn off cell phones, participate, be courteous). Disruptive Behavior in Class – This can prevent other students from learning. You can face disciplinary measures from the instructor and/or the university.
Academic Integrity Cheating is defined as an act or attempted act of deception by which a student seeks to misrepresent that he/she has mastered information on an academic exercise that he/she has not mastered. Cheating may occur on an exam, test, quiz, laboratory work report, theme, out of class assignment or any other work submitted by a student to fulfill course requirements and presented as solely the work of the student (this includes facilitation of academic dishonesty).
Academic Integrity Plagiarism is defined as, intentionally or knowingly representing the words of another, as ones own in any academic exercise. Plagiarism is CHEATING and penalties range from simply affecting your grade to dismissal from the University. The Center for Academic Integrity:
Class Attendance Be there – Be on time! Most classes require 90% attendance (arriving late usually counts as ½ class absence; leaving early may count as a whole class absence). Please check the course syllabus and speak to the instructor regarding the departmental attendance policy. It can vary by class and instructor. You can fail a course even if you have a passing grade by not following the attendance policy. You still have to attend your EKU Dual Credit class while on break at your high school. Please remember this before making vacation plans, etc…
