Returning EOU Students
Previously Admitted EOU Students Returning After More Than A Three Term Absence.
Students who have previously been admitted to EOU and have attended classes but have not received a degree, should use the Returning Student Application.
If the student has attended any other college or university since leaving EOU, the student must request in writing that official transcripts be sent from each of those institutions directly to the Office of Admissions.
Any previously matriculated student who has fallen out of continuous enrollment will become inactive. Continuous enrollment is defined as – attendance that has not been interrupted for more than three consecutive terms (not including summer). Continuous enrollment also includes enrollment at any Oregon University System institution or Oregon Community College.
Any student who has been out of continuous enrollment must complete the returning student application form and be re-admitted before returning to EOU as a student.
Once a re-admitted student becomes fully admitted he/she is subject to the current catalog year. All current catalog rules, guidelines, policies, and degree requirements will apply toward graduation. All transfer work will be re-evaluated under the re-admitted catalog year for transferability and general education consideration.
The student is 15 credits (or less) away from graduation as per a previously filed and approved graduation application. Students who are 15 credits (or less) from obtaining an EOU degree will be allowed to finish under their originally admitted term catalog rules. All originally evaluated transfer work will be honored as is, and any exceptions and petitions will be honored under the original date of approval.
If the original degree (major/concentration/minor) is no longer available at EOU, the Registrar’s Office will work with program faculty to plan to a path forward allowing the student an opportunity to complete an existing degree. The exact number of credits required may exceed 15, and will depend upon the current catalog requirements for the existing degree. The revised degree plan must be approved by the college dean.
Note: Previously approved graduation applications are only valid for up to a period of seven years. Students with a previously approved graduation application on file, who return seven years or more after falling out of continuous enrollment, will be subject to the current catalog year. All current catalog rules, guidelines, policies, and degree requirements will apply toward graduation. All transfer work will be re-evaluated under the re-admit catalog year for transferability and general education consideration
