Admission

Main Campus

Individuals seeking admission to the Walla Walla College Summer Session must give evidence of necessary educational background for success in the courses desired and must apply for admission on forms supplied by the Office of Enrollment or online. New students wishing regular admission as undergraduate students must supply the Office of Enrollment with complete official transcripts from high school showing a date of graduation and cumulative grade point average (or satisfactory GED results). New students must also supply the Office of Enrollment with official transcripts of all previous collegiate/university-level work completed, a $40 application fee, and character reference if requested. A physical examination, tuberculosis skin test, and proof of immunization will also be required.

Undergraduate students must meet the requirements for admission to the freshman class or advanced standing as outlined in the online College Bulletin.

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.
