Congratulations on your admission to Eastern Washington University!
You will need to confirm your intent to enroll with the following steps:
All students are required to have a NetID to apply for housing and access EWU electronic services, including registration, and they must use Eagles email as their official email address. From here on out, please use your Eagles email for all contact with the University, and it’s also the best way to reach OGI advisors. They have a large caseload, and personal email and messages can get lost easily.
New first-year bachelors students under the age of 21 are required to live on campus in the residence halls. Living on campus is an important component of a student’s first year at Eastern Washington University. It is very important that you apply for housing as soon as possible.
If you do not plan to live in campus housing, and you are not at least 21 years of age, you will be required to complete and submit an EWU Undergraduate Housing Exception Request form.
The completed form must be submitted to the Housing office at email@example.com along with documentation (such as a marriage certificate for students with a husband or wife).
Please note: 1) Not all exception requests are approved. 2) Graduate students are not subject to the campus housing requirement.
After you have confirmed and set up your Eagles Email, you'll get an invitation to an Orientation class in Canvas, our online learning management tool at Eastern. The class does a few things: it introduces you to a program you will use for many of your classes; it gives you important information you need to know specifically as an international student; and it goes over basic information about registering for classes. Please have this course completed before April 14th.
Academic students must register on-line for courses prior to arrival. Classes are filling fast—register now for the best selection! English Language Institute students will take a placement test upon arrival and be automatically registered for their ELI classes.
Use the EWU Portal to access registration tools. Select Student, then scroll down on the left hand column until you see registration tools. Additional information about registration is available here. New academic students can register for classes now!
Please note: EWU's Center for Academic Advising and Retention (CAAR) is available to assist Bachelor-level students with academic advising. Please visit Monroe 111 to schedule an appointment.
Airport pickups and drop offs are offered for newly arriving students and students leaving for final departures. To request a pickup or drop off email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, student ID#, full itinerary (in English), and drop off location (example: Morrison Hall). Requests need to be made a minimum of two business days before the flight. If accommodations cannot be made, students are encouraged to use public transportation, a taxi service, or Uber.
