Academic Fees 2022-2023

Fuel Surcharge & Fees Subject to Change

An additional variable fuel surcharge fee may apply to all flights when average fuel costs exceed $6.50/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.



Aviation Payment Options

In order to prevent delays in training, students must have a payment plan in place with the Aviation office. The deadline is the Wednesday before classes begin in order to be placed on the flight schedule for that quarter. These are the options:

1.        Payment in full for the estimated cost of the flight courses for which they are registered. The student will be removed from the flight schedule if their balance drops below $400 without auto pay on file. Financial aid can only be considered if the student’s regular tuition account has been paid in full with other funds.

2.        Automatic Payment Form. The automatic payment plan can use an e-check or a credit or debit card. Charges are processed weekly.  If a credit card is used, a 2.25% convenience fee is charged by the payment processor.  Students and parents can enroll in the Automatic payment Plan by going to Sign in, select payment plans in the account menu, then add a new payment plan. If an Automatic Payment fails, the student's flight training will be put on hold until the problem is resolved.

3.        Confirmation of third party institution payment (examples: Veterans Administration, parent employer)

Aviation Notes

The above estimated average costs include all aviation classes. AVIA 357, 358, 458, and 460 are optional for Aviation Management and Aviation Technology students. Both majors may have practicum flight credits added, the cost of which are not included in the above estimate. Aviation Program Fees are based on a minimum to complete the required flight classes. Students are required to pay anticipated flight course expenses at the beginning of each quarter. Please contact the Department of Technology for additional information concerning aviation flight costs. 

Walla Walla University provides aircraft with the fuel costs covered by the rental rate. If a flight is not operated from our home airport and a fuel purchase is necessary, fuel can be charged to an aircraft credit card. An additional variable fuel surcharge fee will apply to any of these external fuel purchases made above a specified surcharge rate. This rate is variable depending on current regional and national fuel prices. The current fuel surcharge rate can be found at the Flight Center or by contacting a flight director. For further details, consult the Aviation Program Standard Operating Procedures

Due to federal regulation, International Students, including students from Canada, cannot major or minor in aviation. This includes taking any flight training. However, International Students are allowed to take Intro to Flight.

Music Lesson 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:

   Lesson Fees--per quarter, plus tuition

For credit:

Nine half-hour lessons (1 credit)

$275, plus tuition


Nine one-hour lessons (2-4 credits)

$550, plus tuition

Lesson Fees--per quarter

For no credit:

Nine half-hour lessons



Nine one-hour lessons


A minimum of nine, 30-minute lessons per quarter and daily practice totaling five 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 it results in the student receiving less than nine lessons during the quarter.

If a student taking lessons discontinues the lessons, the student must submit a Change of Registration form to the Academic Records Office immediately.



Music Lesson Fee Waivers

Scholarships equal to the lesson fees are available only for music “majors in good standing” who meet the following criteria:

1.        Completion of  MUCT 121-123 Theory I and MUCT 131-133 Ear Training I

2.        Acceptance into the music program as a result of passing a status jury exam

3.        Enrollment in at least 12 credit hours

Students taking music lessons prior to meeting the above criteria are required to register for these lessons. The student will pay the fees during the quarter in which they are registered for these lessons. Music lesson fee waivers are not retroactive. Students who complete eligibility requirements at the beginning of winter quarter become eligible that quarter.  Students who complete eligibility requirements at the end of spring quarter become eligible the following fall quarter.  Only those lessons which are needed to complete requirements for a music major are included in the waiver program. Music majors can receive a lessons fee waiver for more than on emphasis provided they pass status jury exams for more than one emphasis and meet all the qualifications. 


The music lesson fee waiver program is not available for students who enroll or change majors after Fall 2020. Current students who meet the requirements will be grandfathered in until graduation.


Instrument rental

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