Tuition is set each June by the Tennessee Board of Regents. Fees include maintenance fees, technology access fees, campus access fees, a student activity fee, and an international studies fee. Other fees vary according to the number of credit hours taken, such as online courses, RODP courses and dual enrollment courses taught in high schools.

What kind of financial aid is available to students?
Walters State offers numerous scholarships that are based either on academic merit, financial need, or both. We also offer academic and federal work study opportunities if the student qualifies. A student will need to complete a WS scholarship application by February 1 of his/her senior year in order to apply for institutional scholarships. A student will also need to send his/her FAFSA information to the college for consideration for state and/or federal money (lottery scholarships, Pell grant, etc.) Walters State is also an eligible institution for Hope (lottery) scholarships. Apply early!!!!!
What is the minimum ACT/GPA for admission?
Walters State has an open door admissions policy so we do not require a certain high school GPA or ACT score. We do, however, require that a student earn a regular high school diploma or a GED for admission to the college. Also, students under 21 with a regular high school diploma are required to submit ACT scores for placement purposes. Depending on major, students over 21 may be required to take the COMPASS placement exam.
What is the process to enrolling at Walters State?
Students need to complete the application for admission by either filling it out on line or by hard copy. Students will need to submit high school transcripts, college transcripts or GED scores to the Admissions Office Once the application for admission is submitted, the Admissions Office with notify the students of additional requirements.
How do I register for classes?
After all the admissions related items are received, students need to complete orientation. After completion, students can speak with an advisor about classes and then register for them through MyWS. It is always a good idea to register for classes early as some fill up rapidly.
How easy is it to transfer Walters State credits?
Walters State has articulation agreements and equivalency tables with numerous state and private four-year institutions. It is also always a good idea for students to "work backward" and see what courses the four-year institution requires for their particular major. More information about transfer of credit, articulation agreements and equivalency tables can be obtained by contacting the Student Success Center at 423-318-2337 after a student has been admitted to Walters State.
