Registration note for Spring FHL ZooBot Quarter: University of Washington students will register themselves for the three ZooBot Quarter courses after being notified of admission by FHL. Students not matriculated at UW will be registered by FHL staff.

*State Residency: to determine if you are a Washington State resident for purposes of tuition, please review the information provided at the following University of Washington web site: http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/residency.html

**Visiting students will be registered through UW Extension - for visiting undergraduate, graduate, and post-baccalaureate students. To receive UW Extension credit, visiting students are admitted to the University of Washington in non-matriculated status which means that an individual is not working toward a degree at the University of Washington but is earning credits that are probably transferable to another institution. Students may wish to check with their home institution to ensure that this is an acceptable status.

Room & Board Information

The full-board meal plan is mandatory for all persons living in dormitories. Full-board consists of three meals a day, Monday through Saturday, plus brunch and dinner Sunday. Dining Hall meal service is available (except for a few days) during Spring, Summer, and Autumn Quarters. Meals will be served starting with dinner on the Sunday evening before classes begin, and ending with breakfast on the final Saturday of the session. Vegetarian options are available.

Single occupancy dorm rooms are generally reserved for graduate student Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants.

Optional Bedding Rental

Students are encouraged to arrive on Sunday after 3:00 p.m., the day before classes begin, and depart on the final Saturday of the term around noon, following lab clean up.


Additional Costs for International Students

U.S. Student Visa requirements: All non-U.S. students, including Canadians, accepted to a course or apprenticeship at FHL must request an "I-20 Form" (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status) issued by the University of Washington International Outreach Program. The I-20 Form will be needed to apply for a U.S. student visa through a U.S. embassy or consulate in the student's home country, a process that may require a month or more. Canadians do not need to obtain a U.S. student visa but will be required to present their I-20 Form at the border when entering the U.S.

The University of Washington fee for the I-20 Form is $50 and for most students, there will also be an Express Mailing fee of $40. Instructions on how to apply for the I-20 Form will be provided by FHL staff to all international students following admission to an FHL course or apprenticeship.

Once the I-20 Form has been issued by UW, all non-U.S. students, including Canadians, will also need to submit an application and $100 payment for the U.S. "SEVIS I-901" (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System). The following website provides additional information about SEVIS requirements: http:www.fmjfee.com/index.jhtml

Most international students attending a course or apprenticeship at FHL will thus need to be prepared to pay an additional $190 total: I-20 application ($50), mailing fee ($40), SEVIS fee ($100).



Financial Aid Request from FHL


Any student in any quarter may apply for financial aid support from Friday Harbor Labs if the student is facing financial constraints. Awards from FHL are based on both financial need and academic merit. Please review application information at:
