Each 5-week course in Summer A and Summer B will be 9 credits.
Summer classes require a full-time commitment and are held Mon-Fri 8:30 am-5:00 pm, plus Saturday mornings 8 am-noon, except during the final week of classes when Friday is a half-day and there is no Saturday meeting.
You may take courses sequentially, for example, one in each summer session, but not concurrently.
400-level courses are suitable for upper-level undergraduates or graduate students, 500-level courses are graduate-level. Well-qualified undergraduates may be admitted to a graduate-level course with the consent of the FHL Director and the faculty teaching the course. Students should confer with their advisor regarding transfer credits.
Credits for FHL coursework will be earned through the University of Washington (UW), but you do not need to be matriculated at UW.
You must apply to and be accepted by Friday Harbor Labs before you can register for FHL courses. We will assist you in registering through UW Professional and Continuing Education (UWPCE). Students, including UW students, cannot register themselves for FHL summer courses without our assistance.
There will be no financial penalty for moving out of a dorm contract in Seattle if UW students cancel their application and dorm assignment within one week of confirming their attendance at Friday Harbor Labs. Log into the UW Housing & Food Services Application and Assignment Home Page and submit an Agreement Termination Notice (located under the Resident Resources header for the relevant academic year). You will be asked if you will still be enrolled at UW, to which you should answer, “I will be participating in a study abroad/internship.” You will then be asked where you are moving to, and should select the choice “off-campus house/apartment.”
Other Courses during Summer
Note: There are no FHL apprenticeships offered during Summer quarters. They are only offered during Spring and/or Autumn quarters.
