In accordance with U.S. Department of Education regulations, Walden University is required to verify the accuracy of financial aid application information on selected students. Students may be selected randomly for verification or may be selected on the basis of predetermined criteria. This selection process occurs at the U.S. Department of Education. The university may also select applications for verification.
Financial aid awards cannot be determined until verification is complete. Failure to complete the verification process by the end of the period of enrollment will result in a student’s inability to use federal financial assistance for that award year. Students intentionally misreporting information and/or altering documentation for the purpose of increasing aid eligibility or fraudulently obtaining federal funds will be reported to the U.S. Department of Education Office of the Inspector General or to local law enforcement officials.
