Feb. 14, 2020 LA GRANDE, Ore. – When Concordia University announced its closure earlier this week, universities across the state jumped into action to assist affected students and staff.
Eastern Oregon University has ensured students can stay on track to complete their degrees by waiving transfer institutional residency requirements. Instead of having to take a minimum number of EOU credits to receive an EOU degree, former Concordia students can stick to their original graduation timeline.
As one of the top transfer-friendly universities in the region, EOU offers programs that maximize the credits students have already earned to ensure their degree can be completed on time. Prospective students can even find out how many credits transfer before they apply. EOU also removed application fees so former Concordia students can transfer without added costs.
Although the two institutions may appear different, their students have much in common. Both Concordia and EOU offer a 17-to-1 student-faculty ratio. This personal setting, coupled with EOU’s tight-knit campus community, creates a private college atmosphere at the state’s smallest public university.
While many institutions are offering scholarships and fee remissions to transfer students, EOU continues to serve students with the most affordable tuition of any university in Oregon.
“We are faithful to our mission as an institution of access and opportunity,” President Tom Insko said. “Transfer students, whether online or on-campus, experience EOU’s value as we work with each individual to meet them where they are in their education journey.”
High-quality academic programs combine with values like altruism, civility and integrity to make EOU a top choice for students across the state. Personal connections with peers and mentors equip graduates with the confidence and competence to succeed.
“This isn’t a sales pitch, it’s who we are as an institution,” Insko said. “We stand for our values and principles, we are committed to affordability and working directly with students to help them realize their goals. We believe the meaningful interactions that happen at EOU are a critical part of each student’s journey in higher education.”
EOU representatives will be on campus at the Concordia University Transfer Fair from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Thursday, Feb. 20 in the GRW Library Lobby. Former Concordia students interested in additional information about online and on-campus programs should visit eou.edu/concordia for a free transfer credit review and next steps.
