We receive specialized accreditation for our business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). Our teacher preparation programs are accredited through Oregon’s Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC).

More than half of EOU students take at least one class through flexible delivery, including online and onsite courses. EOU’s centers are strategically located across Oregon to serve the needs of off-campus students. For more information see EOU Centers.

Eastern Oregon University’s International Student Services Office hosts international students from around the world who bring a cultural perspective that enriches the entire La Grande community. We are the primary contact for immigration matters students may face during their time studying in the US! Every year Eastern students are invited to study abroad on some of the best programs available, allowing them to explore the world, make new friends and have an unforgettable experience!
