Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring services are free to all WWU students. Support is guaranteed for most lower-division classes and is also available for select upper-division classes. As of September 2021, tutoring is back in person at the SDC, with virtual appointments available for some situations by request.

For more information, visit the Peer Tutoring homepage.

Internship Services

Internships are considered part of the academic learning process for many majors at Walla Walla University. An experiential learning experience is a great way to develop specific skills and knowledge, as well as make contacts and build confidence. Employers often assess the skills and abilities of prospective employees by evaluating their previous experiences. If you pursue career-related opportunities prior to graduation, you will have an edge over other candidates in a competitive job market.
