We're All-In for Fall

Beginning or continuing your college education in the middle of a pandemic is a challenge, but #WeGotThisLoggers. Here are some of the ways we're making it easier to keep your momentum going this fall.

Personal Attention from a World-Class Faculty

Small class sizes, open office hours, close personal attention and support—this is not a typical “online” experience. Plus, have access to academic and support services from Counseling, Health, and Wellness Services; the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching; Student Accessibility and Accommodation; the Center for Speech and Effective Advocacy; Collins Memorial Library; and more.

Reduced Tuition

Full-time fall 2020 undergraduate tuition will be reduced to the amount charged in fall 2019 (a reduction of $1,025) with a comparable reduction for graduate students.

Merit Awards

The full value of merit awards will be distributed despite the reduction in the cost of attendance.

Work Study

A portion of need-based work-study awards will be converted to grants for students who are not able or eligible to fulfill their work-study assignments during the fall.

Take an Extra Class for Free

Students may take up to 5.0 total academic or activity credits in fall 2020 without incurring a course overload charge (a savings of up to $5,070).

Attend Part Time and Keep Your Financial Aid

Students enrolling in 2.0 units will receive 50% of their merit awards and a portion of their need-based Puget Sound grants. Enroll half time in a ninth semester, and apply the remaining amount of your full-time financial aid from fall 2020.

Single Rooms at the Double Room Rate OR Refunds of Room and Board

Students who applied and were approved to live on campus in the fall will live in single rooms at the double-occupancy rate (a reduction of $725). Those who do not live on campus will have room and board charges waived (an average total of $3,615 for board and $3,125 for meals).

Jump Start Your Career

An online career preparation conference facilitated by career development experts and industry partners will be offered in January 2021 for students who complete the fall 2020 semester.

Audit Up to four classes in a Ninth semester

Students who are enrolled during fall 2020, regardless of class year, may audit up to four classes on a space-available basis in the semester immediately following graduation (excluding summer term). This provides one more semester of an on-campus experience for students (an estimated value exceeding $10,000).
