EWU is still accepting applications as we get closer to our priority application deadline of Feb. 1. The new and improved admissions application is easy to fill out and can be completed within 20 minutes or less at ewu.edu/apply

Direct document upload is now included in the application.

Students can upload documents like unofficial transcripts or signed fee waivers directly into their EWU Admissions Application.

Transfer students still need to submit official college transcripts to make sure college credits transfer.

Transcripts are simpler to send.

You can mail transcripts to our office (304 Sutton Hall, Cheney, WA 99004) or you can send them electronically through our transcript uploader.

Test scores are optional for admissions and will not be considered for scholarships.

EWU Admissions is permanently test optional with test alternatives for our freshmen and for transfer students with fewer than 40 credits.

We are test blind for our scholarships, which means test scores will not be considered when offering automatic scholarships to students.


Feb. 1 is close for financial aid!

We’re getting closer to our priority deadline for FAFSA/WASFA and general scholarship applications (Feb. 1), and that means lots of calls and texts from students! Rest assured: we’ve already emailed them and texted them.

We always accept applications and FAFSA/WASFA submissions after Feb. 1, but federal and state funds are more limited after that date. We want students to qualify for as much aid as possible, so meeting that deadline is key.


EWU is excited to welcome our updated College Assistance Migrant Program!
CAMP at EWU is a federally funded program designed to support students from migrant and seasonal farm worker backgrounds during their first year of college. For more information, please email camp@ewu.edu or go to our site at inside.ewu.edu/camp.
