Funding Your Education
As a Walden student, there are a number of resources available to you to help fund your education. Our enrollment advisors, along with our knowledgeable financial aid advisors, are committed to helping you identify your options and answer any questions you may have about the financial aid process. If you are a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident, you might be eligible to receive Federal Financial Aid. Currently two-thirds of Walden students receive some form of financial aid. Many defray up to 100% of their tuition and fees through Federal Direct Loans.*

Types of Financial Aid
The following are the loans and grant programs administered by Walden University’s Office of Financial Aid. New and current students must meet eligibility requirements to receive and maintain federal student aid.
The Office of Financial Aid processes awards on a rolling basis. You are strongly encouraged to begin the application process at least four weeks prior to the start date of your program or renewal date of your existing loan. Your completed financial aid application, which includes all documents required for awarding and disbursing funds, is required 30 days prior to the end of the term in order for funds to be processed for that term. You must also maintain all federal aid eligibility requirements for the entire term.
Applications will be accepted in the last 30 days of the term, but the Office of Financial Aid cannot be held responsible if funds are not available for disbursement for the term. Delays can occur that are outside of the control of the Office of Financial Aid.
Walden expects its financial aid advisors to always maintain exemplary standards of professional conduct in all aspects of carrying out their responsibilities. Read the Walden University Financial Aid Code of Conduct.
