Eastern Washington University offers support to Saudi students displaced from Canadian institutions.

Saudi students attending academic institutions in Canada will no longer receive sponsorship from the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM) following a recent breakdown of diplomatic ties between the two nations. The cancellation of the SACM scholarship program affects more than 7,000 Saudi students studying in Canada.

In support of the displaced students, Eastern Washington University is offering express, fast-tracked transfers and expedited admission for SACM students affected by the scholarship cancellation.

To apply as an undergraduate (bachelor’s) student, follow these two easy steps:
  1. Complete the EWU Application online, and upload a copy of your passport. [ More ]
  2. Submit official transcripts from your previous institutions.

Once admitted, your immigration documents will be expedited.

To apply as a graduate (master’s) student, please contact EWU Graduate Studies: gradprograms@ewu.edu

As a mainly quarter-system school, EWU’s fall quarter begins in late September. In partnership with EWU’s School of Global Learning, EWU Admissions and the Registrar’s Office will dedicate staff to process transcript evaluations with a one-week turnaround for basic credit transfers.

Eastern is one of the safest public university campuses in Washington and throughout the U.S.

Beyond the small-town atmosphere of the main campus in Cheney, EWU has locations throughout the state of Washington.

For SACM students displaced from Canada, the School of Global Learning will offer a 30% tuition discount for dependents to attend the English Language Institute, as well as housing assistance. For more information about it, contact Kristina Guilfoyle at kguilfoyle@ewu.edu or 509.359.7362.

Please contact EWU Admissions with questions or to start your expedited application today, or on WhatsApp: 509.808.4205.
