Bothell Campus Cohorts

BSN students at the Bothell campus apply for and are admitted to one of 3 cohorts:

  1. Summer Bothell Tuesday cohort
  2. Summer Bothell Thursday cohort
  3. Autumn Bothell (which is a Thursday cohort only)

Students are guaranteed their core classes on the core class day they select; elective classes may be on the same day or different days depending on the students needs and the availability of classes.  Students admitted Summer quarter select their core class day after they are admitted, on a first come-first served basis.

Full-time and Part time Student Schedules

Students admitted to either Summer quarter or Autumn quarter are able to select a full-time (4 quarters) or part time class schedule once admitted.  You will not be asked to commit to a full or part time schedule until the end of your first quarter in the program.  A  full-time schedule means that you will have at least 2 classes per quarter, whereas a part-time schedule means that you will have a maximum of one Nursing core class per quarter (though you can schedule your electives in the same quarter as a core course).  Core classes must be taken in this order on your core class day, but the placement of the electives are only suggested placements.  Electives may be taken in any quarter or on any day you choose, whether you are a full-time or part-time student.
