Walla Walla Community College is located in the northwestern region of the United States and in the southeastern corner of the State of Washington. The college is near the city/county airport and is served by non-stop service from SEA-TAC airport. College housing is not available. All students live off campus in housing they select. The college assists students in finding suitable accommodations. A community bus service provides reliable transportation to the college. Students can also reach the college by a walk and bike path.

English proficiency is required. The college does not offer an intensive English Language program; therefore, a minimum TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score of 500 on the paper-based test, or 173 on the computer-based test, or 61 on the Internet-based test is required for admission. The TOEFL exam may be waived if English is your native language. For more information about the TOEFL test, contact www.ets.org.
