Post-Baccalaureate Students

Students from the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM)

In addition to the above admissions requirements students from the Federated States of Micronesia are required to demonstrate English language proficiency by:

  • English proficiency as demonstrated by achieving 500 on the paper-based TOEFL, or 61 on the internet based TOEFL; a score of 5 on the IELTS; satisfactory completion of level 112 in an English Language School.

Transfer Credits

Most of the credits you earn at other accredited four-year colleges or universities will transfer to EOU. Course work taken at a non-accredited institution will be evaluated but not applied until the completion of 35 EOU credits.

Students with the following Associate degrees from accredited Oregon, Idaho or Washington state community colleges will be considered as having met the general education distribution requirements at EOU:

  1. Oregon: The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer or the Associate of Science in Business Oregon Transfer from an Oregon community college.
  2. Washington: The Associate of Arts, the Associate of Arts and Science, or the Associate of Science degrees from a Washington community college which have been approved for university transfer. Please refer to the official list maintained in the Registrar’s office.
  3. Idaho: The Associate of Arts or the Associate of Science at both North Idaho College and the College of Southern Idaho

Foreign Transcript Evaluations

Transcripts from non-U.S. schools can for evaluation by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) accredited agency.

We recommend using World Education Services (WES) for these services.

  • High School transcripts require a document-by-document evaluation
  • College transcripts require a course-by-course evaluation

 Transcript Evaluation Decisions Upon Admission to EOU

Whether you are a newly admitted freshman or transferring to EOU with prior college coursework, the Admissions and Registrar’s Offices are committed to making every reasonable effort to ensure maximum credit is awarded toward degree completion based on your transcripts. It is important to realize that multiple factors can influence how your transcripts are evaluated, which include but may not be limited to - the accreditation status of the institution issuing the transcript, University policy regarding limits on credits applied toward degree, and faculty evaluation of transfer work. All transcript evaluation decisions are final and are not grievable. Students are encouraged to speak with their academic advisor regarding options that may help them obtain credit for coursework and other experiences not recognized during transcript evaluation. These options may include proficiency testing, Agency Sponsored Learning (ASL), and Assessment of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). Students may find out who their advisor is by signing into Degree Works or visiting the Advising Center.
