2016-2017 Student Handbook (March 2017) [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Adequate Academic Progress (AAP)

Return to: Federal Programs  

All new undergraduate students* are conditionally admitted to Walden University until they demonstrate adequate academic progress. Financial aid cannot be disbursed to a Walden student account until the student has met the AAP requirements as set forth in the Walden University Student Handbook. Once conditions and all other eligibility requirements have been met, federal financial aid will be disbursed. Disbursements to a new undergraduate student’s Walden account can be expected to occur by the close of the 4th week of the term. Students will receive a notice of disbursement. The Office of the Bursar releases refunds to eligible students 14 days after the date of disbursement. Please note: should the student not meet the minimum requirements for AAP, his or her financial aid offer will be canceled.


*Excludes students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Completion program.
