Parent Checklist

Enrolling a student in college can be intimidating. We want to make sure you have the resources you need to successfully enroll your student at Walla Walla University so we've created a checklist for you. To learn more about campus and life at WWU, arrange for a campus visit and encourage your student to sign up for U-Days. If you have any questions please contact Marketing and Enrollment Services at (800) 541-8900.

The University Health Clinic is run by Providence Medical Group, so you will want to check your health insurance plan to see if they are in-network providers, or consider other health insurance plans.

Questions about where you are in these steps? Confused about what to do next?

Staying informed

Every admitted student is assigned a WWU account. This is the same account that gives them access to myWWU and also doubles as their WWU email address. Make sure your student is checking their email and their myWWU to-do list regularly. Access myWWU.

Outside scholarships

Beyond the financial package you will receive from WWU, there are many other places to find financial assistance. Consider this list of outside scholarships.

Parental permissions on myWWU

Once your student starts classes, we can only share information about finances and academics with people your student has given us permission to talk with. Set myWWU parental permissions.

Workshops and webinars

There are many helpful workshops you can attend or webinars you can watch to learn more about paying for college and residence hall live. View the list of recorded webinars and upcoming workshops. 

Summer Advantage

New students who begin their college career during the summer quarter receive a 40% discount on tuition. Learn more about the Summer Advantage program.

Employment application

If your student intends to work on campus, they will need to submit an employment application. Help them find a position on campus and make sure they have the necessary documents to apply.
