Parking, per quarter

Parking rates are listed here

Any vehicle maintained, owned, or operated by an SPU student or employee must be registered with the Office of Safety and Security if it is to be parked on SPU's campus, including city streets. Registration/application forms are available online and in person. 

Any changes in parking status must be reported to Safety and Security within 10 days of the change by calling 206-281-2922. Parking refunds are calculated in accordance with the tuition-refund policy. 

Note: If you completely withdraw from the University, you must inform Safety and Security to be eligible for a refund of your parking fees.

Medical insurance fees

Change in student health insurance: The Affordable Care Act has changed SPU’s ability to offer health insurance to our students. Unfortunately, this means there will not be a health insurance plan offered to domestic (American) undergraduates or graduate students for the 2020-21 academic year.

In accordance with the national health care reform, Washington state has launched the Washington Health Benefit Exchange to assist people in obtaining affordable individual health insurance. These will be individual plans, not plans offered by SPU.

All students studying at SPU on a visa are required to enroll in the University student medical insurance plan year-round (including vacation periods). Exceptions to this policy require documentation of a comparable health care plan. Undocumented students may contact the International Student Services office for medical insurance information and guidance. 

Waivers may be obtained only at Health Services and must be completed by the fifth day of the quarter. 

Student who have not received a waiver will automatically be charged the health insurance premium fee. Though health insurance for students' dependents is not required, it is strongly recommended and can be purchased directly through the SPU insurance vendor.
