What is JumpStart?

JumpStart, a week long freshman orientation from September 20-26, 2015, helps students transition from high school to the privileges and responsibilities of being a student at Walla Walla University.  JumpStart is designed specifically for first-time freshmen. Below is a link to the schedule from JumpStart 2014, the schedule for JumpStart 2015 will be available mid-May 2015.

Get your university experience off to a strong start!

  • Learn your way around campus.
  • Enjoy workshops designed to help you succeed in college.
  • Meet your lifelong friends!

Moving in: The residence halls will be open for JumpStart students to move in Friday, September 18.  There is no extra housing charge for students that participate in JumpStart.  

Cost: The cost for JumpStart was $210.00 in 2014 and is being determined for 2015.  Payment in advance is not necessary because the cost of JumpStart will be charged to the student's account when classes begin.  The JumpStart fee includes all activities, materials and meals.

Students that attend the required number of sessions will receive one academic credit, which is a significant savings compared to the full price of an academic credit.


Disability support: If you will need disability support during the week of JumpStart, please call our office (800-558-2132) as soon as possible with your specific needs.
