RCDHHA Program Application and Housing Information
2018 Program Dates are June 25th – July 19th: Application Deadline is April 2nd, 2018


Housing is available on campus and through motels and rental units within walking distance of the university. Off-campus housing is competitively priced. Contact WOU’s University Residences and Campus Dining for a list of off-campus housing (toll free 1-877-877-1593). On-campus housing is approximately $1170 per person for the four-week session and is in Arbor Park Apartments on the north end of campus. Each four-bedroom apartment is fully furnished and has two bathrooms, a living room and a full kitchen. The housing rate for the apartment includes a linen package (clean linens furnished on a weekly basis). Meals can be purchased through WOU Food Service (approximately $25 a day). These are estimates; exact rates will be known in June 2018.


All campus programs, services and facilities are physically and communicatively accessible. Interpreters and an FM assistive listening system are provided for all deaf and hard-of-hearing program participants. Upon acceptance, information is provided regarding the process for requesting accommodations.


Full scholarships will be awarded to all selected participants who live beyond a commutable distance from WOU. Scholarships include tuition for the 9-credit program plus approximately $3,000 in stipend support, which may be applied to travel, housing and meals, and other expenses.  These awards are made possible through an RSA long-term training grant that requires completing a two month service obligation in a State vocational rehabilitation or related qualifying agency. If this requirement is not met within 26 months, the award must be paid back. Complete information is provided upon acceptance into the program, or go to the 2016 RSA Scholar Manual/WOU.
