How to apply to Eastern as an undocumented student

The application process at Eastern does not vary based upon citizenship and/or immigration status. All applicants must submit an online application, official transcripts (high school and/or college), test scores (see test optional policy), two letters of recommendation, and an essay. Any applicant, regardless of citizenship or immigration status, whose native language is not English may require additional TOEFL scores.

Citizenship and immigration status questions may vary between the applications for admission (i.e. Common Application or Eastern’s Online Application). A social security number is not a required field on the application for admission and should not be prompted by the application when selecting “non-U.S. citizen.” For more information on how to apply to Eastern, visit
