Learning at Evergreen is unlike anywhere else. Escape the sequences of disconnected classes and mindless prerequisites: you can enroll in comprehensive programs that explore many aspects of a theme or topic through different but related subjects. Narrative evaluations from faculty replace competitive grades with meaningful and usable feedback.
Without pre-programmed majors, you can design an area of emphasis to focus your education. All along the way, you’ll explain your journey with an iterative Academic Statement.
Evergreen’s tuition is about $8,000 per year for Washington state residents and about $20,000 per year for nonresidents. By contrast, undergraduate tuition at a private liberal arts college can be as high as $40,000 per year.
Our tuition is also one of the lowest among state four-year schools, and Evergreen students carry less debt than the average Washington state undergraduate.
There’s just something about being a Greener that you won’t find anywhere else. Whether through athletics, recreation, or the arts, Geoducks do things a little bit better, or smarter, or just differently.
The Evergreen State College exists at a cultural crossroads. In one direction lies urban excitement. In another lies outdoor adventure. In yet another you’ll find home-grown comfort.
