How to Apply to the Organizational and Professional Development Program

In order to give you the very best service with your application process, we ask that you work directly with our program coordinator from the very beginning of your application process. In doing so, you are assured that the paperwork will be in the right hands at the right time. When applying to the OPD Program, submit the EIU application form along with military transcripts (AARTS or SMARTS) in addition to any transcripts from colleges or universities they have attended directly to the OPD coordinator. See How to apply here.

Submit the Application for Admission along with the $30 fee (fee will be reimbursed once a person has applied and supplied his/her DD214) which is sent to:

Eastern Illinois University
Attn: OPD Program Coordinator
