Summer Registration  &  Fall Registration

Summer 2015 MPA elective courses are part of the 2014-15 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 22 is the first day of Summer Quarter 2015. Web registration for Summer 2015 for continuing admitted MPA students begins on Monday, May 18. Check your MyEvergreen account for your specific Time Ticket. For detailed Summer quarter information, including tuition and timelines, go to the Evergreen summer page.

Continuing MPA students may register for Summer quarter on the Web beginning Monday, May 18 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 2015 and students not admitted to the college (“special students”) may register for Summer courses as Special Students beginning Tuesday, May 26. 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 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 2014-15 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”.

Monday, September 28 is the first day of Fall Quarter 2015. Web registration for Fall 2015 for continuing admitted MPA students begins on Monday, May 18 (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 2 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 5-9 (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 9 (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 9.  Registration Form.pdf Beginning October 12 (week 3), registration requires submission of a Registration Form with instructor approval, a petition to the Registrar and a $100 late fee.
