Are you a veteran, older than twenty-five, a single parent, married, working full time, living with a disability, coming back for a second degree, or coming to college after earning a GED? Then you're probably a nontraditional student.
How to Apply as a Non-traditional Student
If you've never attended a college or university before, you can apply as a freshman. The application process has been simplified if you are over 25.
If you have college or university credits or have already earned your first bachelor's degree, you can apply as a transfer student.
If you were at EWU before but didn't graduate, you can apply as a returning student.
If you're interested in a master's degree, you can visit the Graduate Studies Office to learn about graduate programs.
I'm a military veteran or active duty. What resources do you have for me?
You can take advantage of the biggest Veterans Resource Center in the Pacific Northwest. You'll still apply as a regular student, but the VRC can help you with G.I. benefits, special services and scholarships, and getting connected to the large and active veteran community on campus.
I have a disability. Who should I contact for support?
Disability Support Services can help you with all of your needs. EWU has one of the most active disability support services in the state.
