This may look like freshman admissions instructions, but it's really the start of your EWU college experience in Cheney, Spokane and Washington.
There are two ways you will get admitted to EWU as a freshman.
To be admissible, students must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA in high school and any applicable college work.
College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADRs)
To ensure proper academic preparation for college, students must complete the following CADRs.
*Be sure to take a math-based quantitative course in your senior year. Acceptable courses include algebra I, algebra II, geometry, pre-calculus and above, math analysis, statistics, applied math, appropriate career and technical courses, or an algebra-based science course such as chemistry or physics. If you take and pass pre-calculus, math analysis or calculus prior to your senior year, you're exempt from this requirement.
ACT or SAT Test Scores
You can take either the ACT (without writing) or SAT test. We use these scores in the scholarship selection process and as a placement tool for Eastern English courses.
We also use test scores to better understand your academic capabilities and potential for success as a scholar, especially if your GPA is low or if you didn't complete the CADRs.
