Federal Aid Options
The following are the federal 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.
Awards are processed 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.
