Students who did not graduate from a standard or accredited high school and home schooled students must qualify for admission by meeting the following standards:
For Non-Accredited and Home Schooled Students to be eligible to receive Federal Financial Aid at Eastern Oregon University, they must earn the GED or have completed 72 college credits.
If you earned a General Education Development degree (GED), follow the directions outlined below on the basis of when you received your certificate:
*Applicants who received their GED in 1997 or later must also meet the second language requirement as described above.
Applicants who graduated from high school prior to 1985 must meet the minimum GPA requirement for entering first-year students. The high school subject requirements are waived. Applicants who graduated from high school between 1985 and 1996 are required to have two years of college prep courses which may include second language, computer science, fine and performing arts or other college prep electives, which may be at the discretion of the admitting institution, include a comprehensive sequence of units in a vocational-technical area of study.
Students who do not meet EOU’s minimum admission requirements but can demonstrate strong potential to be successful in college-level coursework and progress toward a degree may be provisionally admitted to the university by petitioning for Individual Review. The Admissions Individual Review Committee may set additional conditions for students who are provisionally admitted to help maximize their chances for success.
Students seeking provisional admission to EOU are asked to provide further evidence that they can be academically successful in college coursework and progress toward a degree:
1- Any Official Transcripts not Previously Submitted with Application to EOU (official copy of all transcripts, including official college transcripts for any dual credit courses completed in high school and transcripts of any high school grades earned since initial date of application.)
2- Personal Essay: The personal essay written by the student is one of the most important parts of the petition for provisional admission to EOU, giving the committee a fuller understanding of each applicant’s goals, strengths, and likelihood of success in college-level courses.
Students should address their statement to a professional audience of faculty, staff, and advisers responsible for reviewing the evidence presented to determine whether applicants are ready for the rigors of college-level work at this time. The personal statement should answer the following questions in detail (approximately 500 – 700 words total, typed and proofread) :
3- Supporting Materials: Provide at least two additional pieces of evidence from the list below to help the committee evaluate your potential for academic success at EOU. The greater variety of evidence directly relevant to your academic performance, the better.
In most cases, the Director of Admissions will refer students who have submitted a complete petition to the Admissions Individual Review Committee for review. If the petition lacks substantive evidence of potential to be academically successful at EOU, the Director of Admissions may, after initial screening, deny the petition without full committee review.
In addition to the above admissions requirements, students from the Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Palau and Republic of the Marshall Islands are required to demonstrate English language proficiency by:
Transcripts from non-U.S. schools can have evaluations done by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) accredited agency. We recommend using World Education Services (WES) for these services.
