Follow these Registration Instructions provided by EWU’s Center for Academic Advising and Retention to register for classes.

Your program will provide information about their degree requirements and curriculum. If you’re unsure of which classes to register for during your first academic term, consult your program’s website or contact them directly.

If you’re having trouble getting registered, here are some possible reasons:

  • You may have been provisionally admitted and still have items outstanding that are required for full admission. Check your application account to ensure you have completed all the items in your checklist. Use the Login ID and PIN you created when you applied.
  • Your admission is pending a degree-bearing transcript from your college or university. Your admission is pending for some other reason (e.g., missing items).
  • You may be attempting to register at the wrong time. Priority registration is for current graduate students to register for the next term. New and returning student registration begins after priority registration for current EWU students. The priority registration schedule is available here.
  • You may be attempting to register for the wrong academic term. Double-check whether your program follows a quarter- or semester-based schedule, and be sure to select the correct term when registering.

  • If you missed the Feb. 1 priority deadline for financial aid, you still have options. Visit to learn more.

When you receive your Financial Aid Notification with the details of your financial aid award, you have 30 days to accept or reject each award.

If you do not respond within 30 days, your award may be canceled.

You may be asked to verify the information you provided on your financial aid application. Be sure to respond quickly.

Now that you’re confirmed as a graduate student, there are a few things left to take care of before you can start classes.

If you are an EWU alumni, skip steps 1 and 2. You already have an SSO account and Eagles email. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact Graduate Studies.

Please take a moment to review the Graduate Student Orientation, which has all the information you need to navigate graduate school at EWU.

More Information

Housing and Residential Life provides flexible apartment options for graduate students. These students are eligible to rent an apartment by the room. This means that you are only responsible for your contract regardless of if your roommate(s) move out. All utilities are included in rent, and financial aid can apply to rent during the academic year. Contracts are 10 months (September – June) with possible options to rent or store belongings over the summer. You can find more information on the housing website.

For questions, please contact Housing and Residential Life at or 509.359.2451.

Many students have applied and been recommended for admission to an EWU graduate program before they’ve completed their bachelor’s degree. If this is your situation, we will need you to send an official transcript showing you’ve earned your degree before you can be formally admitted to EWU. (Note: You do not need to send us any official transcripts for coursework completed at EWU.)

Some international students may need to send us an official copy of their diploma or degree certificates. We would add this requirement to your official letter recommending you for admission.

You may have been recommended for admission while you were still finishing prerequisite courses for your graduate program. We also require final transcripts showing completion of that coursework before you can be formally admitted.

Getting admitted to a graduate program is a two-step process.

The Two Steps to Graduate Admission

Step 1:
Your program reviews your application and decides they want to admit you. When your program notifies you of your admission, that means you’ve been recommended for admission.

Step 2:
Once your program has recommended you for admission, the EWU Graduate Studies reviews your application to make sure you’ve met all minimum requirements for graduate admission. The most common pending requirement for formal admission from Graduate Studies is your official final transcript showing you’ve completed your degree and/or any remaining prerequisite classes. Once all requirements are met, then we will update your status to be formally admitted.

It’s only after you’ve been formally admitted that you can confirm your enrollment and register for classes.

If you need to request a deferral of your admission to a later academic term, you should contact your graduate program. Your program will determine whether they can approve your deferral based on the circumstances.

If approved by your program, you may defer your admission to a different term within the same academic year without submitting a new application or paying an additional application fee. However, if you are deferring to a different academic year, a new application and application fee is required. We will save transcripts and other supplemental application materials for one year. You will not be required to resubmit those if you reapply within a year of your prior application.

Here are the rules about being a graduate student at EWU. These cover everything from admission through graduation.
