Which Registration Access Code (RAC) do I use to register for summer classes?

You will reuse the RAC number you used to register for Spring 2018 classes to register for Summer 2018 classes.

Do I need to speak with my academic advisor before registering?

Since you’re using your spring RAC number, there is no need to obtain a new one from your advisor, and you can register now. However, you are encouraged to talk to your advisor about Summer 2018 if you have any questions at all about how to use summer courses to advance your education. Summer and fall advising begins March 5 for undeclared/exploratory students, and March 19 for the general student population.

Can I use my Pell grant this summer?

Yes! The U.S. government restored Summer Pell Grant awards last year. If students are enrolled full time in spring and fall, they can receive up to a full-time Pell award during the summer semester, as well. This requires taking at least six credit hours during the summer semester. Keep in mind that the Federal Pell Grant is limited to 12 full-time semesters of awards. Once students reach that limit, they can no longer receive the Pell Grant, so they should carefully make sure all courses they take apply toward graduation.

What if the class I want to take is full?

Fill out a capacity override request. If a small number of students need admittance to the class past capacity, accommodations can be made based on circumstances. If a large number of students need admittance, the University may open another class. Each of EKU’s six colleges offers its own override request form — they can be found on the college’s website.

What if a class I need isn’t available?

While you can choose from classes in more than 100 subjects this summer, class selection is more limited in summer than spring and fall. Fill out the contact form on the left-hand side of summer.eku.edu and let us know what class you need. We will see what’s available and contact you, and it will let us know if there is enough interest to justify offering the class in the summer. If you have already registered for Fall 2018, we recommend browsing the course list and working with your advisor to see if rearranging your schedule could help. By moving one of your fall courses to summer, you could make room to take the missing summer course in fall.

What do I need to know about parking in summer?

If you have a valid parking permit from spring and fall semesters, it will remain valid for the summer. New and visiting students will need to obtain a parking permit, but it’s free. There is no charge to park at EKU during summer. You can register for a parking permit in EKU Direct. For other questions, visit the Student Parking FAQ.
