Financial Aid

Return to: Academic Residencies, Labs, and Intensives Requirements  

Students must be registered for at least one course in addition to a residency in order to be considered for financial aid. The Financial Aid Office reviews registrations at the start of each term and cancels federal aid for any students registered for a residency only. Students who do not register for a regular course along with the residency may apply for a loan through a private lender.

Visit the Tuition and Financial Aid page on the WaldenU website for more funding options. Students should consult with a Financial Aid advisor to determine whether they may qualify for financial aid.

If students are expecting a financial aid refund to help cover non-tuition residency expenses, refunds are released by the Bursar’s Office 14 days after the date of disbursement. The Bursar’s Office cannot expedite refunds, so students should keep this in mind as they make plans to cover the costs of attending a residency.

If students have questions about financial aid, disbursements, and residency fees, Financial Services is available 24/7 for support. Students should call 1-800-925-3368 to speak with a representative or live chat through their student portal.
