The Bastyr University Catalog is published annually. Information contained in this catalog is current as of June 1, 2020, and is valid through June 30, 2021. Recognizing that funding, policies, personnel and curricula may change, Bastyr University reserves the right to change, without prior notice, academic programs, courses, faculty, fees, policies and the academic calendar regulating admissions, registration, graduation and any other matters affecting the student body.
Nothing contained in this catalog shall constitute a contract, expressed or implied, between applicants or students and Bastyr University. While every effort will be made to ensure accuracy of the material stated herein, we reserve the right to change any provision listed in this catalog, including, but not limited to, academic requirements for graduation and various fees and charges without actual notice to individual students. Every effort will be made to keep students advised of such changes. Students should consult this website periodically for catalog updates. Students should follow the catalog in effect at the time they enroll in classes for the first time. Students who take an extended leave of absence or withdraw from the University may be required to meet the graduation requirements of the curricula in effect at the time they decide to return to Bastyr University to complete their programs of study.
The administration shall, at all times, retain the authority to withdraw from the University any student who fails to attain and maintain established levels of academic or clinical performance or who does not exhibit the personal and professional conduct required for the practice of medicine or related disciplines.
In meeting its professional educational requirements, Bastyr University is committed to its obligation to maintain a healthy environment commensurate with the standards set by federal, state or local regulatory agencies in the normal operations of its classrooms, laboratories, and clinical and research facilities. Students should be aware, however, that people training for health care professions may be exposed to diseases and potentially toxic environments to a much greater extent than the general public.
Bastyr University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. For information about accreditation and approval of specific degree and certificate programs, see Accreditation and Recognition.
