EKU NAMED AMONG AMERICA’S BEST COLLEGES BY FORBES
FOR SEVENTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
RICHMOND, Ky. –Eastern Kentucky University ranks among “America’s Best Colleges” for the seventh consecutive year, according to Forbes, the popular business magazine.
Because Forbes recognizes 650 undergraduate institutions among approximately 6,600 accredited postsecondary institutions nationwide, the ranking essentially places Eastern among the top 10 percent of colleges and universities.
The report, compiled by Forbes and the Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP) from a variety of sources, ranks undergraduate institutions based on students’ satisfaction with their college experience, incurred debt, retention and graduation rates, and the success and salaries of graduates.
In its report, Forbes said: “What sets our calculation … apart from other rankings is our firm belief in ‘output’ over ‘input.’ We’re not all that interested in what gets a student into college. Our sights are set directly on … what students are getting out of college.”

Things you need to know!!!!!!
Withdrawing and Financial Aid
Federal Financial Aid regulations require students to earn credit from classes funded by financial aid. Financial aid regulations do not distinguish between receiving a “W” in a course, or an “F” in a course. In both cases tuition is paid with financial aid funds and in both cases the student did not earn credit. Students, advisors, and instructors should note therefore that multiple withdraws can impede appropriate progress toward degree and thus negatively impact a student’s ability to retain financial aid.
