Benefits of Early Application

The earlier you apply and are admitted, the sooner you are invited to come to campus and register for classes. Prime classes tend to fill up quickly with registered students.

Eastern does review closed classes and often opens new sections over the registration period, but it is important to apply and send us your transcripts as early as possible. Eastern accepts applications one year in advance. Even if you have not finished your transferable associate degree, it is important to start your admission file at Eastern.

These are minimum requirements and do not guarantee admission to the university.
