Regionally Accredited Institutions
Regional Accreditation refers to the regional bodies recognized by the US Department of Education to accredit public and private, mainly nonprofit and degree-granting two- and four-year institutions in the US. The regional bodies are listed in the Council for Higher Education Accreditation directory. Regional accreditation differs from national or trade accreditation, which encompass predominantly for-profit institutions offering vocational, career or technical programs.

In certain instances, credit may be considered for admitted students on a case-by-case basis. Students entering Eastern Oregon University with transfer credits from an unaccredited institution will have their credits evaluated and awarded based on the following rules:
- Unaccredited credits cannot be awarded General Education Credit.
- Unaccredited credits cannot be transferred in as an EOU Class substitution.
- Unaccredited credits will not count on the student’s record until they have taken 35 EOU credits.
- Unaccredited credits will be evaluated on a case by case basis. If a class meets a program offered by EOU, the class will be brought in as a LDT (Lower Division Transfers) within that program.
- The student may earn up to 12 credits of LDVT (Lower Division Vocational Transfers), which are transferred to EOU as general elective credits
