Warrior Pledge

• Walla Walla Community College has expanded its Warrior Pledge program to include residents of all five north central counties (Clearwater, Idaho, Latah, Lewis and Nez Perce). The program complements other financial aid programs as a last resort for students who would otherwise be unable to attend college. With its pilot program launched in fall 2022 and funded through private donations, the Warrior Pledge program provides a possibility that a student could earn a two-year certificate or degree, with all tuition and fees covered and does not need to be repaid.
