Estimated expenses

Is WWU affordable? Look past the price tag.

Naturally, if you're choosing a college, you need to look at the price tag. But it's equally important that you then look past it, to the bottom line--because your out-of-pocket cost is what truly counts. 

Each family situation is unique, and until you apply for financial aid and factor in the merit scholarships you've earned, you won't know what your actual cost to attend WWU will be. 

So look past the price tag—and remember that financial aid makes the difference. 


Is community college cheaper?

Starting at a community college may not save you money. If you transfer to WWU after the first two years, your out-of-pocket expense could be more than $4,000 higher than if you attended WWU all four years.

To take up to a 4 hour class for credit^
To sit in on a class*^
one half the regular tuition rate 
$100 per quarter

General Fee

$294 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, printing the first 100 pages in computer labs, access to the library, gym, and pool, and new technology for classrooms, etc., the General Fee now includes the former ASWWU Dues which provides for student publications and membership in 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. Graduate students and others who are exempt from paying the General Fee may purchase student publications for prices set by the ASWUU editors.

Residence Hall Housing

ROOM CHARGES ON THE COLLEGE PLACE CAMPUS
Rent for a room with two occupants are as follows:
Conard Hall$1,305 per person, per quarter
Foreman Hall$1,370 per person, per quarter
Sittner Hall$1,305 per person, per quarter
Meske Hall$1,305 per person, per quarter

When rooms are available, single occupancy is permitted at a rate of 150 percent of regular room rate.

ROOM CHARGES ON THE PORTLAND CAMPUS

Rooms in Hansen Hall are usually available for single occupancy only and the rent is $1,575 per quarter. Should double occupancy be approved, rent would be charged at the same rate as Foreman Hall for each occupant.

ROOM DEPOSIT ON THE PORTLAND CAMPUS

A $175 deposit is required to reserve a room in Hansen Hall. Upon their departure, a refund of up to $115 may be applied to the student's account. Charges for delayed departure, an uncleaned or damaged room, or failure to return keys are also applied to the student's account. Should a student not enroll, the entire deposit will be refunded.

COMPUTER NETWORK USE ON THE COLLEGE PLACE CAMPUS

All rooms are wired for connections to the campus computer network. Students are responsible for getting a network card needed to connect to the campus computer network. Network cards may be purchased through Information Services and can be used throughout a student's university stay. 

PRINTING IN PC LABS

Students will be charged for printing in the library and general purpose PC Labs. Each student will be given $10 credit (100 free pages) each quarter in case of technical problems with printing. After that, each page will cost 10¢. At the end of each quarter, the printing charges will be added to each students account. 

University-Owned, Off-Campus Housing

Walla Walla University owns several studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. In addition, houses with up to four bedrooms are available. Rental rates are comparable with rates in the community. Off-campus housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority is given to married students, students 25 years of age and older, and students with children. Students transferring to WWU who wish to live in university-owned housing are encouraged to contact the WWU Village Life Office one quarter prior to their anticipated arrival. Otherwise, there are three on-line sign up time periods each year for university-owned housing available through the student's myWWU account. The dates for the 2016-17 school year are: 

  • November 13 - 15, 2016 10 a.m. for Winter Quarter 2017 Move-In
  • February 12 - 14, 2017 10 a.m. for Spring Quarter 2017 Move-In
  • May 7 - 11, 2017 10 a.m. for Summer/Fall Quarter 2017 Move-In

Financial arrangements must be approved by Student Financial Services before a student may move into university housing. For more information about housing availability, students may contact the office of WWU Village Life Office at (509) 527-2109.  

Housing Administration Fees

A Housing Administration Fee is required for all university-owned Village Housing units before the key is given to the tenant. This fee is non-refundable and is required anytime a tenant occupies a residence. The fee is charged separately to each tenant ($330 for a married couple or single occupancy of two bedroom apartment). 

Single Occupant:$165/ea
Married/Family Occupant: $330
Two Bedroom, Single Occupant: $330

 

The administration fee is to help with processing of files. A portion of the fee will be applied toward carpet cleaning and light touch-up after occupant vacates. The student is still expected to leave the apartment in the condition it was upon move in. If there are charges for additional damage, delayed departure, or failure to return keys that exceed this fee ($100-$200 depending on unit), these charges will be added to the student's account after the student moves out.   

Pet Policy

The only animals allowed in university-owned student housing are fish (total combined tank size cannot exceed 55 gallons), or approved service animals. Approval for service animals must be pre-authorized through the Disability Support Service Coordinator. Pets are not allowed in any university-owned student housing. This includes pets of visiting family members or friends.

Discipline procedure:

  • A pet is suspected to be living in a student's premises: a 48-hour notice of pet inspection wll be given. If evidence of a pet is found, a $100 fine will be assessed immediately and a notice will be given to comply with the pet policy within ten days.
  • A pet is seen in a student's premises: A $100 fine will be assessed immediately, and a notice will be given to comply with the pet policy within ten days. At the end of the ten days, a pet inspection will take place to verify the removal of the pet.

If a pet, or continued evidence of a pet is found again ten days after the notice to comply was given, a notice of eviction will be delivered.

Dorm Students

If you live in a residence hall, you are required to choose a cafeteria meal plan each quarter. You can choose from six plans:

          Quarterly Cafeteria Plan Options

Meal Plan

Cafeteria Meals

Flex Dollars

Cost per Quarter

Platinum

19 meals per week

No

$1,125

Platinum Flex

15 meals per week

$160 per term

$1,125

Gold

15 meals per week

No

$960

Gold Flex

12 meals per week

$110 per term

$960

Silver

10 meals per week

No

$800

Silver Flex

8 meals per week

$85 per term

$800

Your meal plan is billed as a fixed expense.  By default, your Estimated Personalize Financial Plan shows the Gold Flex meal plan -- a mid-level option -- to give you an idea of what your food costs will be. (This figure will change, of course, should you opt for a different meal plan.)

A "meal" is a cafeteria visit, not a dollar amount.  When you enter the cafeteria, a cashier scans your WWU ID card, and one meal is subtracted from your plan.

Meals do not carry over from week to week. If you run out of meals, you may continue to purchase food, paying with cash, credit card or flex dollars (explained below) or your WWU ID card.

If the meal plan you've chosen isn't working, you may switch during the first two weeks of the quarter.

Other Diners

If you are a WWU student living off-campus you may eat in the cafeteria and the Student Association Center (SAC) as often as you like. You may pay for your purchases with cash, credit card or your WWU ID card.

Guest Diners

Your family members and other guests are also welcome to eat in the cafeteria and the SAC, paying with cash or credit cards at the time of purchase.

Each student on a meal plan receives two Wolves Passes per quarter. The Wolves Pass may be used for guests to join the meal plan owner for a meal in the Dining Hall.

Students cannot use meals from their own meal plan to pay for guests.

Your Walla Walla University Student ID card serves as your meal card.

Meal plans include flex dollars that work as a "declining balance," similar to how a debit card works. If you use all of your flex dollars or do not have a meal plan with flex dollars, you can also use your meal card to purchase items on credit. These items are charged as "inclining balance," similar to how a credit card works and the charges are added to your student account at WWU. Flex dollars carry over from week to week within the quarter, but not from one quarter to another. 

On myWWU, you can see your remaining meals and flex dollars, as well as your purchase history.

For more information, visit WWU Dining Services.

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 $350. 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 or debit card is used a 2.75% convenience fee is charged by the payment processor.  The form for enrolling in the Automatic Payment Plan can be requested from the front desk of the flight center or by contacting the Director of Operations for Aviation.  If an 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)

 

Aviation Scholarships

Walla Walla University automatically 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 Aviation Scholarship is deposited into the student’s aviation account from which the student’s aviation program fees are paid.  Fees incurred will be paid from the scholarship first.  Additional fees, after scholarship depletion, are the responsibility of the student.  Should any scholarship money remain unused, the money is returned to the general fund six months after the student’s last flight training activity.  If a student withdraws from a flight training class, or receives an “X” grade (unofficial withdrawal), the scholarship is revoked, even if the student had flight expenses.  Students can only receive the scholarship once per class.

Aviation Notes

The above estimated average costs include all aviation classes.  AVIA 358, 458, and 460, are optional for Aviation Management students, AVIA 458 and 460 are optional for 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.  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.

 

 

Music Curriculum Fees

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)

$175, plus tuition

 

 

Nine one-hour lessons (2-4 credits)

$350, plus tuition

   Lesson Fees--per quarter

 

For no credit:

Nine half-hour lessons

$300        

 

 

Nine one-hour lessons

$600

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 when discontinuing lessons.

 

Music Lesson Fee Waivers

Scholarships equal to the lesson fees charged 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 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.

 

Instrument rental

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.

If a student's health insurance lapses while they are a student at WWU, they are responsible for obtaining replacement coverage. All students, and in particular our international students, are encouraged to carefully review their health insurance coverage to ensure that they are covered for services in the Walla Walla Valley. If students require assistance in finding a health insurance plan to meet their needs, please go to wallawalla.edu/insurance or contact the Adventist Health University Clinic at (509)527-2425.

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.
