For Adults Over 25

< Return to First-Year Students Application Information

If you will be 25 years or older on your first day of classes at Eastern and you have less than one year's worth (24 hours) of college work to transfer, you're considered an adult student for admission purposes. Your admission requirements are the same as a freshman, you just have a slightly different application process. You also may not be required to live on campus for your first year.

If you've completed a full year of transferable college coursework, you should follow the transfer student admission steps instead.
