Financial Information


Tuition for the summer quarter is $423 per quarter hour. All students should plan to pay their tuition at the time of registration. Fees are charged as published in the 2002-03 Walla Walla College Finance Bulletin, which is available from Student Financial Services. Workshops or extended field trips may require payment of special fees.

Tuition - NPUC Conference Teachers

Teachers from within the North Pacific Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists who are sponsored by their respective employing organizations may present a letter of sponsorship in lieu of tuition payment. However, teachers are expected to pay for books and supplies, graduation fees, any miscellaneous class fees, and room rental charges. Conference sponsorship does not cover classes requiring individualized instruction (aviation, music lessons, etc).

Tuition Refunds

A student withdrawing from classes during the summer quarter will receive a refund in accordance with the policy in the Finance Bulletin. A 100% refund is given if no more than 10% of the class is over, 75% if no more than 20% of the class is over, and 50% if no more than 40% of the class is over. Refund dates are listed below.

All registered, tuition-paying graduate and undergraduate students attending the College Place, Montana, Portland, or Rosario campuses, and students in the summer work program, are covered by the Student Accident Insurance policy.

If a student has been enrolled in the mandatory student sickness and additional accident insurance during the regular 2002-03 school year, that coverage is in effect through September 1, 2003. All new undergraduate students will be enrolled in this coverage for the summer at a cost of $188 unless they submit a waiver form verifying comparable coverage to Campus Health Services at registration time.

Employment (On-campus Student Work Program)

Although Walla Walla College strives to meet each student's needs, work opportunities are limited during the summer months. Students are strongly urged to make arrangements for work before arriving on campus because employment is not guaranteed. Permission to begin working is given only to students who are registered for summer quarter or who have been accepted for fall quarter. Employment opportunities are available in housekeeping, plant maintenance, The Express, library, campus offices, and academic departments.

Regulations require that all employees hired present original documents that establish both their identity and eligibility to work. All students wishing to work on the Walla Walla College campus will be required to present documents before they will be authorized to begin work. For more information, contact the Student Employment Center, (509) 527-2357 or (800) 656-2357.

Walla Walla College offers a SUMMER BONUS for students who are employed by Walla Walla College, American Building Maintenance, or Sodexho Food Service. Students who work a minimum of 460 hours at any of these locations during the summer of 2003 and who register for at least 12 hours of classes fall quarter 2003 will receive a refund of all dormitory room rent charged for the summer, excluding single room charges, or a refund of college housing rent charged for the summer, not to exceed the cost of living in the dormitory.

Financial Aid

Students who need assistance for summer quarter may apply for financial aid. Some Walla Walla College grant dollars may be available; some students may also be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant. Loans may be available, such as Federal Stafford loans and institutional loans through Walla Walla College.

Students who wish to be considered for federal grants and loans will want to mail their 2002-03 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by April 15, 2003. The FAFSA must be received by the federal processor by June 30, 2003. The federal government will not grant exceptions to this deadline. A student cannot be considered for the Federal Pell Grant, SEOG grant, Perkins Loan, Nursing Loan, or Stafford Loan if this deadline is missed.

A completed Financial Aid file contains:

  1. Correct SAR (Student Aid Report). The SAR is generated by the federal processor after a FAFSA is submitted. Students who list Walla Walla College (code 003799) on their FAFSA will have their SAR electronically sent to Walla Walla College by the federal processor. Students who did not list Walla Walla College on their FAFSA will need to contact Student Financial Services.
  2. Walla Walla College Financial Aid Application (FAA). The student should mail this directly to Student Financial Services at Walla Walla College.
  3. Proof of high school completion (final transcript or letter of verification).
  4. Additional documentation, if needed, for verification purposes.

Only financial aid that has been awarded by registration time may be deducted from the estimated costs. Students eligible for Federal or Washington State financial aid must be registered for classes by June 30. Students who register or add classes after that date cannot receive Federal or State financial aid for those classes.

Students who are on the waiting list or waiting for a letter of acceptance should complete the financial aid application. Awarding of financial aid does not constitute acceptance into Walla Walla College. However, if a student moves off the waiting list at the last moment, it is to the student's advantage to have the financial aid application already completed.
