  • If the student has already been approved for tuition payment by Financial Aid or another source such as scholarships, VA, Worker Retraining, WorkFirst, DVR, L&I, etc., it is the students responsibility to contact our Cashier (509.527.4204 Walla Walla Campus; or 509.758.3339 Clarkston Center) before the registration/tuition payment date, to verify that his/her bill has been, or will be, paid or to drop the classes.

Tuition Payment via Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard or Payment Plan.

WWCC cashiers accept cash, check, MasterCard, VISA, and Discover for payment of tuition, fees and books during normal business hours. Tuition and fees payments can also be made at any time online.

Tuition Automatic Payment Plan (You will need you QUARTERLY REGISTRATION NUMBER)

WWCC accepts tuition and fee payments on a “pay-as-you-go” basis, allowing monthly payments during the quarter for a small fee. The payment plan accepts payment by automatic ACH withdrawal from a checking or savings account, in addition to accepting payment via MasterCard or Discover. Please contact the WWCC Business Office at 509.527.4204 for this or the other payment options.

  • Closed classes that have a waitlist will automatically roll in students according to the ranked number from the waitlist up to the fifth day of the quarter. Therefore, students who have been dropped from classes for non-payment have no guarantee that they can be put back in the same classes.
  • If the student has applied for financial aid but no award letter has been issued, the student may want to sign up for the easy payment plan. Call 509.527.4204 for Walla Walla Campus, or 509.758.1772 for Clarkston Campus.
