Live, learn, and succeed at Oregon’s Rural University

Officially designated Oregon’s Rural University, EOU cultivates innovative partnerships with communities across the region to expand economic and educational opportunities for all.


“The APEL class was the most inspiring class I took at EOU. It helped me acknowledge my past experiences and then merge them into my future academic and professional life goals. The class assignments kept students engaged and interacting with each other, and through this process I realized I could reach my dream of completing a bachelor’s degree. This class allows students to evaluate the past, recognize developed skills, and acknowledge learning outside of higher education, all the while propelling them forward. APEL allows students to earn credits based on what they already know – and at a bonus – reduced tuition!”
