Program Requirements

Some programs have special application deadlines or additional application forms.

If you're applying to one of these programs, first apply to EWU via EWU Admissions. Then submit all the materials required for admission to EWU. After you've applied to the university, apply for admission to your program. 

This is not a full list of requirements for admission to any program or major. Nearly all programs at EWU have GPA and course requirements. Not all programs that have special applications may be listed. Program requirements are subject to change. Academic programs have lots of small print, so please review your program's webpage to find out what additional, official requirements you have to meet.

Art and Visual Communication Design

Both the B.F.A. in studio art and the B.F.A. in Visual Communications Design have special applications.

Athletic Training

The application deadline for athletic training is the last day of EWU's winter quarter.


Applications for the business program must be submitted by the 10th day of the quarter.

Communication Disorders

The communication disorders program starts in mid-August and ends in early May because it runs on a semester schedule instead of a quarter schedule.
