Qualified students planning to enroll in sophomore nursing courses on the Portland campus should submit both a Walla Walla College application and a School of Nursing application. Application does not guarantee acceptance; the School of Nursing begins reviewing complete files on February 15 and continues to accept applicants until the class is full, at which time a waiting list is started. Application forms may be obtained from the Walla Walla College School of Nursing, 10345 SE Market Street, Portland, OR 97216; (503) 251-6115.
The tuition for 15 credits is $5,378. Students registering for fewer than 13 credits will be charged $423 per credit. Lab fees are $240 for the quarter.
Room rent in Hansen Hall is $73 per week single occupancy. A $150 deposit is required to confirm the room reservation. Unmarried students under 22 years of age or with fewer than 136 quarter hours are required to reside in Hansen Hall and should contact the dormitory dean at (503) 251-6118.
Students may charge meals in the hospital cafeteria to their Walla Walla College account. Dormitory students eating in the cafeteria should plan approximately $60 per week for food.
Once a student is accepted, a $300 partially refundable deposit is due by May 1 to reserve a place in the nursing program. This deposit will be applied toward the summer tuition charges when the student enrolls. Students accepted after May 1 should make this deposit as soon as they receive an acceptance letter. Accepted students who miss the deposit deadline may lose their place in the summer program. The deposit should be payable to Walla Walla College and sent to 204 South College Avenue, College Place, WA 99324-3000; the student's name and social security number should be included to insure proper credit.
Students needing financial aid to assist with their summer expenses should complete their financial applications by March 15, 2003, in order to know the amount of their financial aid assistance by May 1.
All nursing students must provide proof of health insurance coverage. Registered, tuition-paying students attending the Portland campus are covered by a Student Accident Insurance policy.
Financial arrangements should be made prior to arrival at the Portland campus. Contact Doug Taylor, Student Financial Services, Walla Walla College, 204 South College Avenue, College Place, WA 99324; (509) 527-2815 or (800) 656-2815; firstname.lastname@example.org.
