Job Board
Bastyr Careers is a job board and resource for students and alumni to connect with employers, businesses, and practices, share their resumes, and apply for job opportunities. Alumni can also register as Employers to recruit and post opportunities for Bastyr graduates. The site also contains practices for sale and treatment rooms for rent.

Business Skills
For alumni looking to start, maintain, or grow a practice, we offer events with experts and guest speakers, as well as discounts with online programs. We are also building an online Business and Practice Management Toolkit, which includes information and resources for building a business/practice. To find out more about these opportunities and resources, keep an eye on our monthly newsletter.

Office of Registrar

The Office of the Registrar oversees the alumni tuition benefits, official transcript requests and degree verifications. Read more about official transcript requests. 

Verify a degree
If you would like to verify the degree of a Bastyr alum, please search our database here. Alumni who do not have a Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) hold on their record will be listed in our database. If you would like to remove your FERPA hold, please contact the Registrar's office at 425-602-3089.

Alumni Discounts

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.
