Returning EOU Students
Previously Admitted Students Returning After More Than a Three Term Absence
Applications are submitted to, and processed in, the Registrar’s Office.
Students who have previously been admitted to EOU and have attended classes but have not received a degree should use the Returning Student Application.
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 academic 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 (see below) and be re-admitted before returning to Eastern Oregon University 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. All previously approved exceptions and program petitions will be null and void.
If the program you declared before leaving EOU is no longer offered, then you will need to declare a new program major/minor/concentration when you re-admit to EOU.
The student is 15 credits or less away from graduation as documented in a previously approved graduation application submitted prior to falling out of continuous enrollment. Graduation applications submitted after this time will not be accepted and thus not apply to the University’s re-admit policies.
Students less than 15 credits from graduation with an approved graduation application submitted prior to falling out of continuous enrollment will be allowed to finish under their original catalog requirements. 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 program curriculum (major, minor, concentration) is no longer offered at EOU, the Registrar’s Office will work with program faculty to plan a path forward allowing the student an opportunity to complete the original program. The exact number of credits required may exceed 15 and will depend upon the current catalog requirements. The revised degree plan must be approved by the college dean who oversees the existing program.
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 in all respects. All transfer work will be re-evaluated under the re-admit catalog year for transferability and general education consideration. All previously approved exceptions and program petitions will be null and void.
Returning Students are not charged an application fee.
Returning students have two options for submitting transcripts from institutions attended since leaving EOU.
Transcripts may be mailed to:
Eastern Oregon University
One University Blvd
105 Inlow Hall
La Grande OR 97850
Alternatively transcripts may be emailed to email@example.com or submitted by fax to 541-962-3799. If faxing, the submitting institution must follow the OrACRAO FAX POLICY. All transcript materials must be submitted and received by the Registrar’s Office before the returning student application will be processed.Share:
