Alumni Tuition Benefit

Choose between two options for the annual tuition benefit.

  • Free tuition for a grade, up to the value of three (3) Bastyr credits, and one (1) free audited course per year, to a maximum of three (3) credits.
  • Free tuition for a grade, up to the value of four (4) Bastyr credits; and no (0) additional audited course. 

To take advantage of this benefit, you must apply. Application forms are available from the registrar's office and online here.

Please note the following benefit details.

  • Once you have been registered for your class/classes, you cannot change the status (for-credit or audit status) for the term. 
  • The term of the annual tuition benefit corresponds to the academic year and is measured from fall term through summer term. You can use your tuition benefit in any term; you may find it advantageous to consider your quarterly course load in your planning.
  • The free tuition benefit for graded coursework can be used in increments – for example, an alumnus could take a one (1) credit course in fall term and a two (2) credit course in winter.
  • The audit benefit can be applied in the same quarter as the tuition benefit for a grade; but the audit benefit cannot be taken in increments.
  • Participation presumes there is room in the class and all prerequisites have been met.
  • If a graduate is also an employee, that individual can take advantage of the alumni benefit or the employee tuition benefit, whichever is greater.
  • This benefit is not retroactive.
