Tuition includes a single room, some meals, and materials, along with administrative and faculty support for inter-session assignments. Admission to PCBS is granted after review of an applicant’s online application and receipt of the registration fee, which is non-refundable. Once an applicant is accepted and has paid the full tuition amount, room reservations will be secured and applicants will begin to receive other communications from PCBS.

All classes, meals, and rooms for PCBS students are located on the University of Washington campus, set in the scenic Pacific Northwest on the shores of Lake Washington. PCBS session attendees share a rich classroom experience while enjoying the natural beauty and excitement of one of the country’s most beautiful destinations.

Three resident sessions are held during the last two weeks of August for three consecutive years.

The 2023 session was filled to capacity and had a waitlist. Please apply early to avoid the waitlist. If you have questions about the program please call 425-278-0250 or email Kathryn.
