Applications must be submitted no later than July 1st fall enrollment.
Applicants may be accepted mid-year, but you will not be eligible to register for the practicum series classes (DNHY 485, 486, and 487 or DNHY 491, 492, and 493) as they must be taken in sequential order starting fall quarter.
Note for Eastern Washington and Port Angeles area applicants: We hope to link weekly courses to students from the East side or Peninsula area from Pierce College to eliminate traveling to the Pierce campus in Lakewood, WA. Please contact Monica Hospenthal to discuss whether this option is available. Further, students must travel two to four times per quarter for the non-weekly meeting courses. However, students may always take any class by traveling to Pierce College Fort Steilacoom.
Disclaimer: The distant linking of the course is not guaranteed to the student and it is the responsibility of the student to attend courses if this arrangement is terminated.
