Financial Aid Information

Eastern Kentucky University is closely monitoring the developments surrounding the COVID-19 virus in the world, the nation and Kentucky. University leadership is meeting regularly to develop responses to a rapidly changing situation. Our highest priority is to protect the well-being of our students, faculty, staff and the community. For that reason, EKU is enacting several measures to help mitigate the likelihood of transmission and the spread of the virus. Please visit our COVID website to get the latest information from EKU.

Big E Central has enacted measures to continue to serve our students. When in-person traffic is closed, students can reach a financial aid representative via phone Monday – Thursday 7:30am – 5:00pm by calling 859-622-2361. We can also be reached by email at or by scheduling a virtual appointment. Thank you!
