Academic Information



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 $30 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 annual Bulletin of the College. Graduate students must meet admission requirements as outlined in the Graduate School Bulletin. North Pacific Union Conference K-12 teachers should apply through their conference educational superintendent.

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.

2004 Smart Start Summer $cholarship


Smart Start Summer Scholarship is a special program designed for any undergraduate student who has not taken a class at Walla Walla College prior to the summer of 2004 (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. The net tuition cost for a full summer load is therefore only $1,804—a savings of $3,500 off the regular price of $5,304 after fall rebate. The scholarship and rebate will be prorated for students who take 3-11 credits.

If a Smart Start Summer Scholarship student takes more than 12 hours (not normally permitted), tuition will be charged at the regular rate of $442 per credit for those hours that are in excess of 12. Students in this program should plan to pay their full tuition when they register; other charges are due when billed. (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted.) The tuition is non-refundable. Additional costs include:

  • Deposit ($25)
  • Dormitory rent ($73-76 per week; Smart Start students are expected to live in the dormitory if their permanent address is outside the Walla Walla Valley.)
  • Cafeteria (approximately $55-60 per week)
  • Textbooks (approximately $200)
  • Insurance ($202 or waiver)
  • Miscellaneous expenses (A few courses have additional fees.)

Smart Start Summer Scholarship is available only to students who enroll on the College Place campus. Students enrolled at the Rosario Beach Marine Station or Portland Campus School of Nursing are not eligible. Classes in aviation are normally limited to lecture classes.

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 start program on the application. After the student has been accepted to the College, an opportunity will be given to 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 28. The Summer Session office will notify the student regarding acceptance into the program. Enrollment is limited.

While the College cannot guarantee employment, job opportunities are available on campus for students who wish to work. The suggested maximum working hours per week for a student are:

  • 8 hours if taking 10-12 credit hours
  • 14 hours if taking 7-9 credit hours
  • 20 hours if taking 5-6 credit hours

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 deposit.
  4. Pay the full tuition at registration, plus other charges when billed.
  5. Live in the dormitory, if the student’s permanent address is outside the Walla Walla Valley.
