Why Wouldn’t You Take EKU Winter Courses?

We talked with several EKU students about winter courses and why they haven’t taken advantage of the opportunity to earn college credits over the six-week winter term. Here’s what we found out: many students don’t think they need to take winter courses, they think winter courses would be too expensive, they don’t want to miss out on going home over winter break or they don’t know what courses would benefit them. That’s understandable, but did you know that…

1) Winter courses at EKU can help you get ahead or prevent you from falling behind on requirements for graduation? The COVID pandemic put students off track for graduation and winter courses can be the perfect solution to getting back on track!

2) EKU Winter courses are now more affordable than ever? With microscholarships (typically around $250) and free textbooks for undergraduates, you can earn credit hours for a fraction of previous years’ costs.

3) EKU Winter courses can be completed fully online? The winter term offers convenience for students traveling back home for the holidays. Enjoy spending time at home with family over the holidays and keep earning credits while doing so. 

4) You can easily find what courses are offered over winter break? See which classes will benefit you the most by searching the class schedule. Get answers to any of your questions by contacting your advisor or by visiting EKU Winter.

2022 winter courses will be in session from December 5, 2022 to January 13, 2023. Be sure to visit EKU Winter to learn more about the winter term and register for your classes in myEKU. Registration for winter courses is open now, and the last day to add/drop courses for the winter term is December 7, 2022.
