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