Recommended Posts

Eastern Illinois University has a rich tradition of preparing students to accomplish their life goals through a great combination of quality academics and personal relationships.
Consistently ranked in the top third of Midwest universities in its class by U.S. News and World Report, Eastern has earned its reputation by offering a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate programs taught by an experienced and caring faculty. Besides reasonable tuition, fees, and room and board rates, Eastern offers a textbook rental system, saving the average student hundreds of dollars per semester.
A variety of excellent on-campus housing opportunities are available on the safe, compact 320-acre campus. Student graduation and retention rates are well above state and national averages. That success continues after students earn their degrees -- year after year, Eastern ranks high in job placement, alumni satisfaction, and employer satisfaction.
Eastern Illinois University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of College and Schools and by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Eastern Illinois University is a comprehensive public university that offers superior, accessible undergraduate and graduate education. Students learn the methods and results of free and rigorous inquiry in the arts, humanities, sciences, and professions, guided by a faculty known for its excellence in teaching, research, creative activity, and service. The University community is committed to diversity and inclusion and fosters student-faculty scholarship and applied learning experiences within student-centered campus culture. Throughout their education, students refine their abilities to reason and communicate clearly to become responsible citizens and leaders.
Eastern Illinois University will be a premier comprehensive university globally in its reach and impact, where personal connections with faculty and staff support students' academic success. Eastern Illinois University is committed to diversity and inclusion and encourages opportunities for its future and current students to engage in dialogue that broadens and informs their worldviews. As such, non-academic disciplinary action resulting from participating in a peaceful protest will not affect a future student's admission decision.
The Graduate School is excited to be included in your pursuit of graduate education and is committed to supporting you necessary to ensure a smooth admission process. Graduate admissions is a two-part process at EIU. It involves an application to the Graduate School and application to the graduate program if you are seeking a degree in a particular discipline. If you need to enroll in coursework without applying to a graduate program, please select "non-degree" on the admission application.
The International Student Scholarship was established by the Board of Trustees to assist students from other countries attending EIU. Awards are competitive and designed to promote cultural exchange and diversity. Awards may be granted based on one or both of the following factors: financial need and academic excellence. The scholarship pays partial tuition for minimum full-time enrollment in EIU courses. Fees, field trips, continuing education delivery charges, travel, living expenses, and other personal expenses are not covered.
If you're currently in high school or have never attended college, applying for undergraduate admission as an incoming freshman is for you. Suppose you've already earned a bachelor's degree and are interested in furthering your education with a graduate degree or second bachelor's degree. In that case, you'll want to apply for admission to The Graduate School. Are you looking to make a move to EIU from a community college or another university? Transfer students make up 35 percent of our undergraduate population, and our Office of Transfer Relations is here to ensure a smooth transition.
EIU is proud to be an ideal home for students from outside the United States. If you fit that bill, you can apply for international admission. Not all potential students are high school seniors or community college transfers, which is why our B.A. in General Studies program exists. It is specifically designed to meet mature adults' educational goals in a format and structure compatible with adult responsibilities. Registered nurses (RNs) who are already licensed to practice and newly graduated non-licensed ADN's who are ready to advance to a BSN degree from EIU should apply to our R.N. to B.S. in Nursing program.
The Organizational and Professional Development (OPD) bachelor's degree program revolves around a distinct field of academic study focused on understanding the human aspects of professional organizations, aspects such as people, processes, and practices. Did you attend EIU in the past without ever getting a chance to finish up your undergraduate degree? If one or more semesters have passed since you last enrolled, you can apply for readmission to the university and get yourself that diploma.
Eastern Illinois University, located in Charleston's east-central Illinois community, provides the best undergraduate and graduate education of any public university in the region.EIU is within three hours from Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis, and within easy driving distance of Champaign-Urbana. Convenient rail service to downtown Chicago and Champaign-Urbana is available through the Amtrak train station in nearby Mattoon.
