Financial Information

Main Campus

Tuition

Tuition for the summer quarter is $316 per quarter hour. All students should plan to pay their tuition at the time of registration. Fees are charged as published in the 1996-97 Walla Walla College Student Finance Bulletin, which is available from Student Financial Services. Workshops and 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, all teachers are asked to pay for books and supplies, graduation 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 College Bulletin. A 100% refund is given if no more than 10% of the class is over, a 75% refund is given if no more than 20% of the class is over, and a 50% refund is given if no more than 40% of the class is over.

When a student withdraws during a quarter, no refund will be made until 30 days after the close of the month in which the student withdrew. Students who leave school without completing withdrawal procedures will be charged until proper arrangements are made.

Insurance

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

If a student has elected to carry the optional medical/hospitalization insurance during the regular 1996-97 school year, that coverage is in effect through September 18, 1997. New students or students who did not purchase that insurance may purchase coverage for the summer at a cost of $187 by notifying the Campus Health Service office 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 autumn quarter. Employment opportunities are available in custodial, plant maintenance, Dairy Express, Color Press, Library, campus offices, and academic departments.

Students who work full time at the College during the summer and who enroll as full-time students fall quarter may qualify for the Summer Bonus progam.

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, 1-800-656-2357.

Financial Aid

Students who are needing assistance with their summer quarter may apply for financial aid. Some WWC 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 1996-97 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by April 15, 1997. The FAFSA must be received by the federal processor by June 30, 1997, because they stop accepting applications for the summer on this date. 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 WWC (code 003799) on their FAFSA will have their SAR electronically sent to WWC by the federal processor. Students who did not list WWC on their FAFSA will need to mail their SAR to Student Financial Services.
  2. Walla Walla College Financial Aid Application (FAA). The student should mail this directly to Student Financial Services at WWC.
  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 completed.
