Progression titles chart a student's progress through the University.
A new student.
- One or more forum posts (Hi & Bye forum included)
- Character has been a member of EVE University for at least 7 days
- Character is at least 31 days old
There are no further requirements for this title; they are a simple set of criteria. If you meet them all, you can apply and will be granted the title. If you do not, please wait until you meet all of the requirements before applying. Unlike for Sophomore or Graduate, an Omega clone is not needed for this title.
An experienced student who is engaging with the University community in a positive, meaningful, way. A Sophomore applicant needs to provide evidence of learning by doing.
This title is different than Freshman. It is not a simple matter of checking the boxes. Titles Staff attempt to evaluate your activity and make a decision about whether you have ‘enough’ activity. If we had to boil Sophomore down to one word, it would be ‘participation.’ The Sophomore applicant must demonstrate that they are actively participating in University activities. These activities can really be in almost any aspect of the game. For more information, see the Titles Frequently Asked Questions.
A fully qualified pilot, recognized for their knowledge of game mechanics and their service to the University. This title takes a higher degree of effort to earn compared to Sophomore, and many students do not attain it before they decide they are ready to move on to other adventures in New Eden.
- Player has demonstrated a mastery of a range of EVE game mechanics (this can be done via the Forum, Wiki and/or Killboard, but could also be demonstrated in a wide variety of other ways)
- Player has shared their knowledge and experience with the EVE University community
- Sophomore Title
- Character has been a member of EVE University for at least 12 weeks
Just as the requirements for Sophomore are rather different from Freshman, so are the Graduate requirements. If the key to Sophomore is ‘participation,’ the main aspects of the Graduate title are ‘mastery’ and ‘giving back’. Mastery should cover a wide portion of experience in New Eden, and Service can take a variety of forms, but both are considered by senior staff when reviewing an application. Subsequently, Graduate applications may take longer to process than the other progression titles; but be assured this is only a consequence of the more thorough evaluation that ensures EVE University Graduates are held to our standards. For more information, see the Titles Frequently Asked Questions.
Staff & Vanity Titles
Staff titles, such as Mentor, Teacher, Professor, and a number of Officer titles, denote an individual's role as an EVE University staff member, officer, or director. Other titles (known as "vanity" titles) are just for fun, and are tailored to the individual who holds them. Both staff and vanity titles are awarded through a different process, and are not handled by the Titles Department.
Requesting a Title
To claim your title, ensure that you meet the requirements fully, then log in to the EVE University Portal using EVE SSO, click on the title you want to apply for and fill out the application. As we discuss on the FAQ, we can only evaluate your application based on the data we can see. If you think that there are other factors that Titles Staff needs to consider, or individuals that we should contact regarding your application, please make use of the text box on the application form to give us the information that we need.
- If you wish to include references in your application, please see the Titles FAQ about how to do so properly.
- It can take some time for a title to be applied due to the various checks that are required for each applicant.
If you rejoin EVE University on a different character, you will be able to regain your previous title if the following criteria are met:
- The previous character that held the title is stated in your new title application.
- The character you are transferring your title from is in your possession at the time of the title application being processed.
In the case of Graduate, you may carry over the title, but will not receive the medal again.
