Why does the "Priority Application Deadline" matter?

When you complete your admissions application by the priority application deadline, you have financial aid and registration priority over students who apply after the deadline. This is a pretty big deal if you plan on receiving grants, work study and other forms of financial aid. Apply early!

Just make sure you submit your FAFSA and EWU Scholarship Application by that date, too.

Fall Priority Admission Deadlines: Feb. 15

If you want to attend EWU in the fall, you have one crucial deadline to remember: Feb. 15. It's the day after Valentine's Day, and to show your love for EWU, you need to make sure we have all your application materials by midnight Feb. 15.

You can submit your admission application without completing your FAFSA or your EWU scholarship application, but you'll miss out on $3.1 million in scholarships and $118 million in financial aid.

Fall Priority Housing Deadline: May 15

Submit your $125 housing fee by May 15 to take advantage of special sign-up bonuses. (Students are big fans of the free parking.) After May 15, space in the residence halls will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can apply for family housing at
