[ back ]
Most Willamette MBA students live off-campus. For a Google map and recommendations from students visit Housing Recommendations and Tips From Students (http://www.willamette.edu/agsm/full-time/admitted/Off_Campus_Housing_11.html). Our Incoming Student Arrival Liaisons will help you. Other good resources for information include the Statesman Journal (Classified Ad) and Craigslist
Looking for a Roommate?
If you would like to have a roommate who is a new Willamette MBA student, please complete our Roommate Interest Form and email it to Judy O'Neill by June 27th at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will collect the information and email you a summary of the names, emails and preferences of students seeking a roommate so you can begin to connect with each other. Another great way of meeting potential roommates is through our admitted student Facebook page.

Registration for Fall Semester Courses
Willamette MBA registration is a very simple process, so don't worry. First year students will automatically be pre-registered for the entire first-semester core curriculum (5 courses, 15 semester credits). Sections will be assigned to ensure demographic, academic and experiential balance in all sections. Judy O'Neill, Associate Dean and Director of Admission, will contact students who have special registration options.
As a guideline, the general class schedule for most first-year Willamette MBA students will be as shown below. Remember, that as a Willamette MBA student you will be involved in many meetings and sessions outside of class (experiential learning, client projects, career management services, professional organizations, etc.). Our estimate is that you will be busy with the MBA program (classes, studying, meetings, events, organizations, etc.) approximately 50 hours per week.
Textbooks For Fall Semester Required Courses
We will provide a list of textbooks for the first semester core courses later this summer. We provide the list so you can purchase your books before school starts, if you would like to do so. All text books will be available for purchase at The Willamette Store

Willamette offers a health insurance plan that meets and exceeds the above requirements. The cost for student insurance for the 2011-12 academic year is $468 per semester for six months coverage ($936 for 12 months coverage). The cost of the health insurance is automatically billed to you by Willamette University at the beginning of each semester. Payment is required at the time other charges are paid. Check with Nicole Melius, International Programs Advisor, Willamette University Office of International Education (phone 503-370-6736; fax 503-370-6565, email email@example.com ) for coverage and rates for family members.
You will not be required to purchase the Willamette insurance plan if you can prove that your existing insurance policy meets the minimum requirements listed above. If you have an insurance policy which meets the above requirements and contains all the information listed above, you must obtain a copy of your insurance coverage (written in English), and take it to Nicole Melius, International Programs Advisor, in the WU Office of International Education to be evaluated for compliance by the first Friday of classes each semester. If you are not able to provide proof of the required level of insurance coverage, you will be automatically billed for Willamette's health insurance plan.
If you have questions about international health insurance, contact Nicole Melius, International Programs Advisor, Willamette University Office of International Education (phone 503-370-6736; fax 503-370-6565, email firstname.lastname@example.org).
