Summer and Fall 2014 Registration Information



Summer Registration  &  Fall Registration

Summer 2014 MPA elective courses are part of the 2013-14 academic year and can be found via the MPA Course Information page

Summer is an optional quarter for MPA students, so we do not offer Core or concentration courses. We offer elective courses and, for continuing students, opportunities to work with available faculty on individual study and internship contracts.

Monday, June 23 is the first day of Summer Quarter 2014. Web registration for Summer 2014 for continuing admitted MPA students begins on Monday, May 19. Check your MyEvergreen account for your specific Time Ticket.

For detailed Summer quarter information, including tuition and timelines, go to the Evergreen summer page.

Summer MPA elective courses are part of the 2013-14 academic year and can be found in the MPA 2013-14 catalog course info link; scroll down to the “Electives” category and it’s the last group of courses.

Continuing MPA students may register for Summer quarter on the Web beginning Monday, May 19 at 8 am. Continuing MPA students may complete up to 12 credits per quarter without the MPA Director’s approval.

New students admitted to the MPA program for Fall 2014 and students not admitted to the college (“special students”) may register for Summer courses as Special Students beginning Tuesday, May 27. Register by mail, by fax ( 360.867.6680) or in person using the Special Student Summer Registration Form.pdf or by emailed PDF form. Note that course registration priority is generally given to continuing students. For more information regarding Special Student registration. For info about summer statistics courses that meet the MPA prerequisite requirement, go to our statistics prerequisite guide.

Non-admitted students who have a bachelor’s degree are eligible to take MPA elective courses for graduate credit, as “graduate special students”. Register using the instructions and forms listed above for “special students”. If admitted to the MPA program, up to 12 Evergreen graduate elective credits taken as a graduate special student will count toward the MPA degree.

To obtain a course syllabus, contact the instructor at the contact information provided for the specific course in the MPA 2013-14 catalog. Some syllabi will be posted on the MPA course syllabus page.

For class locations, go to the “Class Schedule” page and click on “Summer Class Schedules”.

Fall 2014

Monday, September 29 is the first day of Fall Quarter 2014. Web registration for Fall 2014 for continuing admitted MPA students begins on Monday, May 19 (week 8 of Spring quarter). Check your MyEvergreen account for your specific Time Ticket.

Tuition for courses for which you are registered is due by the Friday at the end of the 1st week of the quarter: Friday, October 3 at 4pm. Registered students who do not pay for courses by this deadline will be charged a late payment fee of $50. In addition, after 30 days of nonpayment, interest charges will be added, at 1% per month.

From October 6-10 (week 2 of the quarter), late registration is permitted and requires instructor approval. Normally, a late registration fee of $50 is charged, but to maximize our enrollments by October 10 (the 10th day of the quarter, when course enrollments are counted for funding purposes) MPA staff will waive the $50 late registration fee (via email to Registration, by student request) through October 10.  Registration Form.pdf

 Beginning October 13 (week 3), registration requires submission of a Registration Form with instructor approval, a petition to the Registrar and a $100 late fee. Form for petition for Registrar approval.pdf

  • Continuing MPA students (in either the Public/Non-Profit Administration or Public Policy concentrations) register on the Web via their myEvergreen account by time ticket, beginning Monday, May 19. Continuing students who are currently in 1st year Core do need to register into fall 2nd year core course. Note that 8 credits is a full-time course load in MPA. MPA students may register for a maximum of 12 credits without the MPA Director's approval.
  • Newly admitted General Cohort MPA students (in either the Public/Non-Profit Administration or Public Policy) who will begin coursework in Fall 2014 register on the web via their myEvergreen account by time ticket, beginning May 19. Note that 8 credits or more is a full-time course load in MPA, which would equal your 6 credit core course, "The Context of Public Administration (General Cohort)" + 2 elective credits (or more, as you wish). MPA students may register for a maximum of 12 credits without the MPA Director's approval.
  • All Tribal Cohort MPA students register on the web via their myEvergreen account by time ticket, beginning May 19. To meet the requirements of the Tribal Governance concentration, in Fall 2014 you will register for 10 credits (a full-time course load): your 6 credit core course "The Context of Public Administration (Tribal Cohort)" + the 4 credit concentration course "Path to Sovereignty." MPA students may register for a maximum of 12 credits without the MPA Director's approval.
  • Non-admitted Graduate Special Students (non-admitted students who have a Bachelor’s degree) may register for open MPA electives beginning September 22 (the week before the quarter begins) with permission of the instructor OR may get on the waitlist for electives that are full from September 22-26, with permission of the instructor. Graduate Special Students may register for a maximum of 8 MPA elective credits in any quarter, and a maximum of 12 credits will “count” toward the MPA degree should they subsequently be admitted to the MPA program. Note that MPA and other graduate students have priority to register for MPA electives.  To determine which courses are open, contact Jan Hays, MPA Program Assistant, beginning September 22 (the week before the quarter begins) at haysj@evergreen.edu or at 360.867.5939. At that time, for every course that has space available and is of interest to you, email a paragraph to the course instructor (and cc: Jan at haysj@evergreen.edu) asking them to give you permission to register if there is availability and describing the reasons why you are interested in that specific course and any pertinent information about your education and/or experience. To register or get on the waitlist for a course that is full:
  1.  get the instructor's or designee’s permission via email before the course begins;
  2. forward the email with instructor’s permission to Jan Hays, haysj@evergreen.edu. Jan will check to see if space is still available: if so, Jan will email the Evergreen Registration Office (and cc: you) to permit you to register for the course.
  3. print, complete and submit the Special Student Registration Form (SSRF.pdf) to the Evergreen Registration Office by fax (to 360.867.6680, “Attention: Elaine”), by emailed PDF form, by mail or in person . After receiving Jan’s email with instructor’s and program permission + your faxed SSRF, Registration will email you to let you know if you are able to register or not.
  4. If the course is full and you are placed on the waitlist, if space becomes available through Friday, September 26, you will be moved into the course. After September 26, waitlists become moot, so you will no longer be automatically moved into a course from the waitlist. Should space become available in the course through the 10th day of the quarter (October 10 for Fall 2014), the MPA program will notify people who were on the old waitlist and offer the space to the next person on the list.
  • Undergraduate students (juniors and seniors) may register for open MPA electives beginning September 22 (the week before the quarter begins) with permission of the instructor OR may get on the waitlist for electives that are full from September 22-26, with permission of the instructor.  Note that MPA students, other grad students and Graduate Special Students have priority to register for MPA electives.
