There will not be a Scientific Diving Workshop offered at FHL in 2017. We will conduct Scientific Diving training on an as-needed basis and Scientific Diving course opportunities may come in the future; please contact the Dive Officer for more information.
Each 5-week course in Summer A term and Summer B term will be 9 credits.
Summer classes require a full-time commitment and are held Monday-Saturday: Mon-Fri 8:30 am-5:00 pm, plus Saturday mornings 8 am-noon, except during the final week of the term when the final 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, but you do not need to be matriculated at University of Washington.
You must apply and be accepted by Friday Harbor Labs before you can register for FHL courses. We will assist you in registering through University of Washington Professional and Continuing Education (UWPCE). Students, including UW students, may not register themselves for FHL summer courses without our assistance.
UW students with dorm contracts in Seattle should cancel their application and dorm assignment in Seattle 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). On the HFS form, to answer the question “Where are you moving to?” please select the choice “off-campus house/apartment.”
