The college search is an exciting time in your life and an important first step toward independence. But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, your search and admissions process may look a little different than in years past. Your campus tour may be virtual, and meeting your EKU Admissions Counselor may take place online rather than on campus. Even so, you can still learn about the EKU admissions process and life as a Colonel. Here are some questions you may want to ask in your virtual appointment.

How Do I Apply to EKU?

First thing’s first-- if you haven’t already, you’ll need to apply for admission to EKU. Your admissions counselor can walk you through the process. Generally, you’ll need to fill out our online application and submit your high school transcripts. But you won’t need to submit test scores or an application fee!

What are My Chances of Getting In?

Your admissions counselor can look at your records and let you know how strong of a candidate you are for admission to EKU. They can also let you know how you can make your application stronger. If you have maintained a 2.5 GPA or higher through high school, you qualify for standard admission. If you’ve maintained a 2.0-2.49 GPA, you may qualify for Success First Admission and receive specialized academic support. 

How Can I Pay for College?

For many students, the cost of attendance is a top consideration. As a School of Opportunity, EKU is committed to remaining affordable. Your admissions counselor can guide you through  financial aid options, including scholarships, grants, loans and more. And beginning Fall 2021, textbooks are free for students through EKU BookSmart - making your college degree even more affordable. 

Which EKU Scholarships Do I Qualify For?

EKU offers a wide variety of both merit and need-based scholarships to help students like you offset their costs. In fact, we recently unveiled a new set of merit scholarships. They’re automatically applied and range from $1,000 to the full in-state tuition amount. See the scholarship list at, and talk to your admissions counselor about which ones you may qualify for. 

What are My Chances of Employment After Graduation?

Before you make an investment in your education, students like you want to know it will pay off after graduation. EKU graduates have a bright future ahead of them; we have a connected, engaged network of alumni, and 78 percent of EKU graduates are employed within six months of graduation. Ask your admissions counselor about the career outlook for your intended major or about in-demand majors that may interest you. 

Whether in-person or online, we’re here to help. Make your virtual admissions appointment today.
