This may look like freshman admissions instructions, but it's really the start of your EWU college experience in Cheney, Spokane and Washington.
You have two paths to admission to EWU as a freshman.
If this is you, you'll be automatically admitted. (You still have to submit your application, official transcripts, essays, and official ACT or SAT scores!) This is why working hard in high school pays off.
The College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADR) are a series of required high school classes that freshmen and first-year students have to take in order to attend a public university in Washington. If you're going to be a freshman or first-year student at EWU, here's the list of classes you need to take in high school. Running Start students have to meet CADR requirements, too.
*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.
