Students absent for less than three years:
If a student has been absent for less than three years as determined by EWU’s Admissions Office, evaluation of coursework is not needed. Department chairs and/or faculty advisors may recommend but not require that the student repeat certain courses.
Students absent for three years or more:
If the student is absent for three years or more, the business advisors will ask the department chairs to review the student’s business program courses. If the chairs determine that there has been substantial content change since the student completed a course, the student will be required to repeat the course.
The department chairs may consider accepting an expired course if the student has recent, relevant work experience that applies to the subject area. Students are responsible for providing the business program with written information detailing this work experience.
