Exciting News from WWU July 27, 2022 School of Education & Psychology FREE TUITION for New Freshmen and Transfer Students
Limited Time Full-Tuition Grant for NEW Education Students
I am sharing some extremely good and amazing news! Due to a generous gift from the North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC), free tuition is being offered to new freshmen and transfer students who enroll in an elementary or secondary education program at Walla Walla University this fall. Tuition for your education program will be covered in full by a combination of the NPUC NextGen Teacher’s Scholarship and any other grants or scholarships you have been awarded for the year. The special NPUC grant dollars are to be used in 4 years and limited to 16 hours per quarter only while enrolled as an education student.We do not know how long this grant will be available so are encouraging you to lock it in this year.

Education Program From your first Introduction to Education class, you will be able to see what working with K-12 students would be like in our local private and public PreK-12 classrooms. Discovery Preschool (pictured above) is a laboratory for observing and interacting with young children. You can observe stages of student learning, teacher classroom management styles, and review curriculum in your area of teaching interest.
