Walla Walla University High School Enrichment Tuition ($250 per class, limited to 4 credits per quarter)

The High School Enrichment Program provides qualified high school seniors the opportunity to enroll in Walla Walla University courses on a space-available basis. Dual credit may be earned for both the high school diploma (at the discretion of the high school) and a university degree. Courses will appear on the university transcript.

This applies for both on-and off-campus housing.

Senior Citizen Audit Tuition ($100 per quarter)

The Senior Citizen Class Program (non-degree seeking) makes it possible for students who are 65 or more years of age to sit in a class (with teacher's permission). Class or lab fees are the responsibility of the student. 

General Fee--Undergraduate ($376 per quarter)

All tuition paying undergraduate students registered for 6 or more hours are required to pay this fee. Taskforce, Student Missionaries and ACA students will be exempt. Besides covering the cost of housing club dues, internet access while on campus, Excess Student Accident Insurance, printing the first 100 pages in computer labs, access to the library, gym, and pool, and new technology for classrooms, etc., the General Fee includes the ASWWU dues which provides for student publications and membership in the Associated Students of Walla Walla University (ASWWU).

Students who are charged the General Fee for less than three quarters will need to pay an additional fee if they wish to receive the yearbook. Students who are exempt from paying the General Fee may purchase publications for prices set by the ASWWU editors.

General Fee--Graduate ($121 per quarter)

All tuition paying graduate students registered for 4 or more hours are required to pay this fee. This fee covers internet access while on campus, Excess Student Accident Insurance, new technology for classrooms, graduation fee, etc. Students on the College Place campus also receive access to the library, gym and pool, and printing the first 100 pages in the computer labs.

Since the General Fee for graduate students does not include ASWWU dues, graduate students wanting campus publications such as the Mask and the yearbook may purchase these publications for prices set by the ASWWU editors.

Students will be charged for printing in the library and general purpose PC Labs. Printed pages are charged at a rate of 10 cents per monochrome and 25 cents per color page. Each student will be given $10 credit each quarter to compensate for technical challenges when printing in these locations. Printing charges are tallied at the end of each quarter and added to each student's account less the $10 credit.

University-Owned Off-Campus Housing

Walla Walla University owns a limited amount of apartments and houses for students to rent. Rent is charged to the student account in 3-month increments and are prorated based on check in and check out dates.

Students must apply for housing during open application periods. Priority is granted to applicants who are married and/or have children and/or are 25 years of age or older. Housing offers are made to other applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Financial arrangements must be approved by Student Financial Services before a student may move into a residence. 

Students not registered for the following quarter are required to vacate the day after the last day of finals, or if graduation in June, the day following the graduation commencement. A 30-day "move out" notice is required. Students not giving a 30-day notice may forfeit up to 30 days of rent. Upon vacating, students are responsible for restoring the residence to its initial clean condition. If there are charges for an incomplete move out, cleaning, damages, moving out late, or failure to return keys, these charges will be added to the student's account.

Information regarding local providers and information regarding the purchase of other insurance plans can be found at  wallawalla.edu/insurance

Excess Student Accident Insurance
Walla Walla University covers all registered undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students with excess accident insurance with a $5,000 limit. Students injured while on WWU campus, in campus--owned housing, or participating in off-campus University-sponsored activities (excluding intercollegiate athletic accidents) may file a claim. Visit wallawalla.edu/insurance  or contact Risk & Safety Officer at (509) 527-2250 for assistance.

Personal Property Insurance
Walla Walla University is not responsible for loss of personal property. Students are encouraged to carry their own insurance for coverage of personal belongings.

Fuel Surcharge & Fees Subject to Change

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

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 autopay 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 at: payment.wallawalla.edu (sign in, go to the Account Menu, then Payment Plans, then Add a New Payment Plan) If the Automatic payment fails, the student's flight training is put on hold until the problem is resolved.
  3. Confirmation of third party institution payment (examples: Veterans Administration, parent employer) 

Estimated Aviation Program Costs*


Estimated Flight Costs


















Varies based on the individual student

Total (without Practicum)



*Students flight costs exceeding estimates will be charged to the students accounts as charges occur.

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 an average student completing the flight class. Students are required to pay anticipated flight course expenses at the beginning of each quarter. Student flight costs exceeding the estimates will be charged to their aviation account as charges occur. If there are
funds available after the course is completed, those funds can be applied to the next flight class in which the student enrolls, or returned to their student account. 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 Procedures and Regulations document at fly.wallawalla.edu.

Due to federal regulations, international students, including students from Canada, cannot major or minor in aviation, and cannot take any flight training classes. International Students are allowed to take Intro to Flight.

Music Curriculum 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  $375

Nine one-hour lessons  $750

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 discontinues the lessons, the student must submit a Change of Registration form to the Academic Records Office at the time the lessons are discontinued.

Federal financial aid cannot be used to pay for tuition for lessons not required for a student's degree.


Scholarships equal to the lesson fees charged for credit lessons 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 (Audits and "No credit" classes do not count)

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. 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 lesson fee waiver for more than one 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. 


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

Nursing Deposit

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.

Peterson Memorial Library Charges and Fees

Walla Walla University Libraries are dedicated to serving the information needs of students and faculty by providing equitable access to materials. All borrowers must present a valid WWU ID card to check out library resources and are asked to respect library property and policies. The libraries' computer system is configured to send automatic courtesy and overdue notices to the borrower's WWU email address. However, it is the borrower's responsibility to monitor their library account for lending information, including items checked out and their due dates. Unless requested by another borrower, renewals are available for most items owned by the WWU Libraries. The borrower is financially responsible for lost, stolen, or irreparably damaged library materials. The library will assess any items returned damaged and will contact the borrower if the item is deemed irreparable.

Unreturned/Damaged Items Owned by WWU Libraries

There are no daily overdue fines for items owned by the WWU Libraries. However, materials should be returned in a timely manner, as once our library computer system considers the material LOST, replacement charges and non-refundable processing fees are automatically added to the borrower's library account. More information on loan periods may be found on the library's website.

Fees may be paid by either cash or check at the Walla Walla University Libraries during the quarter they are incurred. Any unpaid fees are forwarded from the borrower's library account to the Accounting Office on a quarterly basis. Payment of lost/damage fees does not signify the sale of the library material. Library materials remain the property of the university and should be returned to the Walla Walla University Libraries if found. However, replacement charges will be refunded if a lost item is returned within one quarter of being charged.

Lost/Unreturned/Damaged Items

Non-Refundable Processing Fee $15 per item
Most Books $75*
Most Periodicals $20 per issue*
Audio/Visual Media $250*
Tablets, Digital Projectors, & Other Equipment $2,000 (maximum)

*Books, periodicals, or A/V media may necessitate a higher replacement fee depending on the cost of the item.

Resource Sharing

Resource Sharing services provide scholars with access to materials outside of the WWU Libraries' main collections. Materials borrowed through Resource Sharing should be returned on time to continue a good relationship with the lending institution. Replacement fees for lost/damaged Resource Sharing materials are determined by the lending institution/entity.

Summit: Summit items are borrowed through Walla Walla University's partnership with other libraries in the Orbis Cascade Alliance. Lost or irreparably damaged Summit items have a replacement fee of $90. This will be refunded if a lost item is returned in good condition before it is processed through Summit's Annual Account Reconciliation (AAR).

Interlibrary Loan (ILL): ILL offers access to materials not currently available within the Walla Walla University Libraries or Summit collections. Most ILLs may be acquired without additional charges to the student. In a situation where an item may only be acquired with a cost or copyright fees are required by law, the student will be notified and given the option to charge these costs to their WWU account.
