Courses at FHL vary from year to year and quarter to quarter. FHL welcome undergraduates, graduates and non-students to apply. The summer quarters (Summer A and Summer B) are the most popular, with offerings primarily for graduate or upper level undergraduate students. The Autumn and Spring quarter course offerings include undergraduate courses, along with unique research apprenticeship programs.

Applying and registering for FHL courses differ from other courses offered at UW. Please study the Applying for an FHL Course page carefully, paying careful attention to the required documents, along with the due dates and costs.

There are many financial aid opportunities for those students who can demonstrate financial need or academic merit. To maximize the aid to as many qualified students as possible, only partial support will be awarded to individuals.

Coursework at FHL requires a full time commitment, and living on campus is highly encouraged. Due to the remote location of FHL, it is not possible to commute to FHL from Seattle. The living arrangement at FHL is unique in that most faculty and almost all students live, eat and work together on the FHL campus.

We welcome faculty from academic institutions worldwide to consider teaching an FHL course. Besides courses, there are other exciting opportunities to teach at FHL, which includes the leading of a team of Research Apprentices or mentoring a summer intern. Of special interest, we encourage faculty who can provide or support diversity at FHL with an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Faculty Position.
