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 Transcript not Previously Submitted with Application to EOU (all transcripts, including 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.
