Interim President David McFaddin announced the plan to refund 33% of housing costs and 33% of dining plan costs in an email sent to students on March 9.
“Students who moved out of EKU Housing before April 1, 2020, will receive a prorated credit applied to their student account by April 15, 2020. The credit will be 33% of the original housing charge,” McFaddin said in the email.
Students who only paid for Flex Dollars (either the $300 or $500 option) should have received a refund for the balance they had remaining on their accounts by April 15.
Students who had meal plans should have received 33% of the original cost by April 15.
McFaddin also detailed the plan for upcoming summer courses.
“After consulting with the provost, a decision has been made that due to the uncertainty that the COVID-19 virus presents, it is best to proceed with the first summer session entirely online,” McFaddin said.
However, McFaddin also expressed the possibility of allowing some on-campus activity during the summer session.
“As we transition into the second summer session, there may be opportunities to offer varying levels of face-to-face material such as labs and clinicals. However, this decision will be based on the recommendations from state and federal officials regarding social distancing and other information surrounding the COVID-19 threat,” McFaddin said.
Summer events held on campus will follow the same schedule as course instruction.
