Alumni Tuition Benefit
Alumni must apply to register for free credits with the alumni tuition benefit. There are limited yearly funds for free tuition credits and they will be granted on a first come, first served basis. The funding capacity for academic year 2021-2022 has been reached. Alumni may reapply for tuition benefits in the 2022-2023 academic year.
- Access the academic catalog to find a course of interest.
- Submit the application form to the Mike Hall, Assistant Registrar at email@example.com
Choose between two options for the annual tuition benefit.

- Free tuition for ONE grade, up to the value of four (4) Bastyr credits; and NO (0) additional audited course.
Please note the following benefit details:

- 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.
