Coming to Eastern is easy! Best of all, applying to ENMU is FREE! Our international admission process requires submitting the following documents:

Step 1. Complete our FREE online application for Undergraduate International Students, or for Graduate International Students.

Step 2. Send ENMU the following documents:

  • Your Evaluated Transcripts
    If you have studied outside the United States, please submit your official transcripts to a NACES-member organization for evaluation. This organization will then send your evaluated transcripts to ENMU. Please note:
    • Incoming freshmen should submit only secondary-school transcripts for evaluation.
    • Undergraduate transfer students with under 30 credit hours of college-level coursework, submit both secondary and post-secondary transcripts for evaluation.
    • Undergraduate transfer students with 30 or more credit hours of college-level coursework, submit only post-secondary transcripts for evaluation.
    • Graduate students, submit each official transcript from all previously- attended universities or colleges outside the U.S for evaluation.
    • Graduate students with any previous college-level work taken at a U.S. institution must also submit official transcripts from those institutions. Transcripts from U.S. institutions do not require submission to a NACES-member organization.

    If you have taken 30+ credit hours at a U.S. institution, you will not need a credential evaluation. Please have the institution send your official transcript directly to ENMU:
