International Students

International Student Deposit

Students who will first enroll during Fall 2013 through Summer 2014, and who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States (except Canadian students) are asked to place a $7,000 (U.S.) deposit with the university before final acceptance can be given and the I-20 form, necessary to secure the U.S. student visa, can be sent. For students first enrolling during Fall 2014 through Summer of 2015 the deposit will be $8,000. For students first enrolling for Fall 2015 or later the deposit will be equal to one quarter's tuition.


Walla Walla University requires all international students to purchase the WWU Student Health and Additional Accident Insurance Plan.


International students will be expected to use the Regular Payment Plan described in this bulletin.


According to Immigration and Naturalization Services regulations, international students attending WWU while on student visas are only permitted to work on campus and are limited to a maximum of 20 hours of work per week during periods of enrollment. Spouses and children who are not students may not accept employment under any circumstances.

Financial Aid

International students on student visas do not qualify for the majority of loans and grants described in the Financial Bulletin. To determine ability to meet educational costs, the University requires applicants to submit a declaration of finances before final acceptance is given.
