Expectations for Admittance
Eastern University welcomes applications from well-qualified graduates of two-year colleges as well as from students who have earned college credit at other post-secondary institutions.
Graduates of regionally accredited two-year schools who earned the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science will receive credit for all courses completed in their degree programs. Other transfer students from regionally accredited post-secondary institutions are granted transfer credit for college-level courses with final grades of C (with equivalent of 2.0 quality points on a 4-point scale) or higher. Courses with no Eastern University equivalent may be granted elective credit within the corresponding academic department. Technical, professional and pre-professional courses completed at accredited post-secondary institutions are considered individually and may qualify for up to 30 semester hours of transfer credit.
Eastern accepts credit for noncollegiate sponsored instruction and training programs as recommended by the American Council on Education. Distance learning may be accepted in transfer if the credit originates at a regionally accredited college or university and is posted on an official transcript from that institution. Credit for departmental exams and experiential learning posted on transcripts from regionally accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in transfer. Coursework from non-accredited institutions will not be given credit. Grades and quality points from transfer institutions are not included in the Eastern University grade-point average for entering transfer students, although past performance is considered in judgment of academic progress.
