The simple steps to becoming EIU

The admission process seems intimidating, but thanks to MyEIU, we’ve made it simpler than ever. Your MyEIU account takes you through every step.

Laptop Requirements

All entering art majors are required to have an Apple laptop computer. The hardware requirements are  subject to change each year as Apple develops and markets new laptop models, which normally happens sometime during late-Winter or Spring of the year. Current Fall 2012 hardware requirements can be found here.


Applying for Admission

If you're not a first-time college student, you may not be in quite the right place! Don't worry, though. We'll get you pointed in the right direction. Just find yourself in the list below.

You can also get in touch with our admissions counselors at 877-581-2348 or via email at admissions@eiu.edu. They'll be able to get you on the right path!

After Admission

Upon admission new freshman will be asked to submit an enrollment deposit by May 1 and all students living on campus a housing deposit by June 12. Prior to your arrival on campus, all first time students will also be asked to complete a medical examination form and will be contacted regarding your class schedule, housing accommodations and other details.
