aFee does not include travel, food, lodging, and other miscellaneous expenses. Residency fees take effect January 2016.

bTuition for the Executive Master of Business Administration program covers the Technology Support Fee, hotel rooms, most meals, and an airline travel voucher for both residencies. Students will receive a $500 airline travel voucher for the leadership residency and a $1,000 airline travel voucher for the international residency. Students will be given directions to book their air travel through a pre-approved travel agency. The airline travel voucher is intended to cover the cost of airfare to and from the residencies. Any airline costs above the provided vouchers will be the responsibility of the student. Funds can only be used for purchasing a round-trip airline ticket to an approved residency; unused funds will be returned to the university. Walden will not cover any passport or visa-related fees. It is the responsibility of students to cover any fees or expenses associated with their ability to travel outside of their home country.

cThe Technology Support Fee is included in the program fee for students in the Executive Master of Business Administration program.
