Academic Fees 2014-15

Aviation Fees

Walla Walla University awards aviation scholarships to subsidize a portion of the flight-training costs.

A student taking AVIA 140, Introduction to Flight, receives a $345 scholarship to put towards the costs of the two-hour flight requirement. Costs in excess of the $345 scholarship are the student's responsibility and must be paid in advance.

For any other flight training class, the student receives a scholarship of $375 for each credit hour of flight course in which the student enrolls. The scholarship money is deposited into the student's aviation account from which the student's aviation program fees are paid as they are incurred. The student must maintain a minimum balance of $350 in this account at all times.

Should the total scholarship money in the student's aviation account be spent before the student completes or withdraws from the aviation program, the student must deposit funds into the account to cover further charges before they are incurred.

Should any scholarship money remain unused after the student completes or withdraws from the program, the money is returned to the general fund six months after the student's last flight training activity.

Whether covered by the scholarship or by the student, aviation program fees must be paid in advance. An additional variable fuel surcharge fee will apply to all flights when average fuel costs exceeds $6.50 per gallon. All aviation program fees are subject to change as a result of the fluctuation of operating costs. Please contact the Department of Technology for additional information concerning aviation flight costs.

Federal Aviation Administration Check Rides are required for student pilots earning licenses and ratings. The fees for these range from $350 to $850 depending on the license or rating sought.

Music Education Fees


Students may take music lessons with or without receiving academic credit for the lessons. Students enrolled in lessons will be charged fees, in addition to any applicable tuition, according to the following schedule:


Nine half-hour lessons $240 per quarter, plus tuition
Nine one-hour lessons $480 per quarter, plus tuition


Nine half-hour lessons $276 per quarter                    
Nine one-hour lessons $552 per quarter                    


Music Fees Scholarships equal to the lesson fees charged are available only to music "majors or minors* in good standing" who meet the following criteria:

1. They have completed MUCT 121-123, Theory I and MUCT 131-133, Ear Training I
2. They have passed their juries and have been accepted into the music program
3. They enroll for at least 12 credit hours

Students taking music lessons prior to meeting the above criteria are required to pay the fees during the quarter in which they register for the lessons. Students matriculating at WWU prior to Fall 2011 are eligible for the retroactive Music Fees Scholarship. Only those lessons which are needed to complete requirements for a music major or minor are included in the scholarship program.

A minimum of nine 30-minute lessons per quarter and daily practice totaling five clock hours per week corresponds to one credit hour of music lessons.

It is the student's responsibility to meet the appointed time for lessons. The teacher is obligated to provide opportunity for makeup lessons only in cases of illness or emergency. Excused absences may be made up at the discretion of the teacher if previous arrangements have been made. Lessons falling on holidays or vacations are not made up unless this results in the student receiving fewer than nine lessons during the quarter.

If a student taking lessons for credit discontinues the lessons, the student must submit a Change of Registration form to the Academic Records Office at the time the lessons are discontinued. A student taking noncredit lessons must inform the Music Office if the student discontinues lessons.

The Music Fees Scholarship is under revision. A new program will be offered for subsequent years.

*Only full-time majors who completed the above criteria prior to June 30, 2012, and minors who completed the above criteria prior to June 30, 2011 are eligible to receive the Music Fees Scholarship.


Students may rent band or orchestra instruments for $75 per quarter.


When a student is accepted into the nursing program, a $300 (U.S.) non-refundable deposit is required to secure a place in the program. The deposit will be applied towards tuition, although the deposit cannot be used towards the quarter's down payment.
