Are you trying to catch up on your course load? Maybe you want to graduate a semester early or on time? Taking classes during EKU Winter could help you catch up on your courses or graduate early. EKU’s Winter session has already begun registration, and we’ve compiled the top reasons why you should take winter courses with EKU! 

1. Build a Schedule That Works For You

You can still get a break between semesters even while taking winter courses. Most EKU Winter courses are offered online – so we literally come to you! You can spend the holidays with your friends and family and snuggle up next to a cozy fireplace while taking the classes you need for your degree! Browse the winter course listing here.

2. Focus on a Tough Course

Are you worried about a course that you may need to focus on solely without the burden of an entire course load? Take a class that you know you may need to put all of your focus on during the winter session! You will also be able to have more one-on-one time with your professors which brings us to our 3rd reason.

3. Build a Relationship with Professors 

Professors also have smaller course loads during the winter session, which means they are able to spend more time with students. Taking winter courses is the perfect opportunity to seek help from professors and build a relationship with them without the busyness of the regular academic year! 

4. Graduate Sooner

Many students come to EKU with college credit from AP or dual credit courses. If that’s you, you may be on track to graduate early with just the right course schedule. EKU Winter can provide the push you need! Taking winter courses could help you graduate in less than four years, saving you valuable time and funds while starting your career sooner.   

5. Take Advantage of Cost-Saving Opportunities

Did you know EKU Winter offers microscholarships that can help you cover the cost of winter courses by up to $250? Starting on September 22, students will be able to apply for winter microscholarships to help defray the costs of winter courses. Check back here to keep track of microscholarship information! In addition to microscholarships, undergraduate students taking EKU Winter courses get free textbooks through EKU BookSmart. 

These are just a few of many reasons why you should enroll in EKU Winter. Follow the Winter Blog for more information about courses, instructors, scholarships and more. Talk to your advisor about the best class for you to take, and register through myEKU. Feel free to reach out to the EKU Winter team at with any questions.
