Mature individuals who apply through the Office of Enrollment but who are ineligible for regular admission or are not working on a degree may register for any course for which they have sufficient background (non-matriculating). Such students are not eligible for a degree; however, by completing requirements for regular admission they may become degree candidates.

2005 Smart Start Summer Scholarship

A Smart Start Summer Scholarship is available to any undergraduate student who has never taken a class at Walla Walla College (except as a high school or academy student). A student in this program who registers for 12 credit hours receives a $3,000 summer scholarship, plus a $500 cash rebate if the student enrolls full time fall quarter, for a total savings of $3,500 off the regular full summer tuition rate. The scholarship and rebate will be prorated for students who take 3-11 credits. The Smart Start Summer Scholarship is available only to students who enroll on the College Place campus.

Application Process

Students interested in the Smart Start Summer Scholarship program should follow the usual application procedure for admission to Walla Walla College and indicate their interest in the summer smart start program on the application. After having been accepted to the College, a student may reserve a place in the Smart Start Summer Scholarship program by sending a $25 non-refundable deposit. The reservation and deposit should be sent by May 27, as enrollment is limited. The Summer Session office will notify the student regarding acceptance into the program.

Finance

The net tuition cost for a full summer load is $2,044—a savings of $3,500 after fall rebate off the regular price of $5,544. The tuition due at registration is $2,544. (The $500 rebate is awarded upon verification of enrollment after the tenth day of fall quarter.) Additional costs include:

The tuition fee is due at registration. Other charges are due when billed. Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted.

While the College cannot guarantee employment, some job opportunities are available on campus for students who wish to work. A reasonable work load for a summer student taking a full academic load is 8-10 hours per week.

Summary

In summary, a Smart Start Summer Scholarship student must:

  1. Have earned zero college credit at Walla Walla College (except as a full-time academy or high school student).
  2. Meet the Walla Walla College admission requirements and be admitted to the College as a regular student on the College Place campus.
  3. Send in the Smart Start Summer Scholarship reservation form with a $25 non-refundable deposit.
  4. Pay the tuition balance at registration, plus other charges when billed.
  5. Live in the dormitory, if the student’s permanent address is outside the Walla Walla Valley.
