There are two types of refunds you may receive regarding your student account at Walden: a refund of tuition and a financial aid refund of excess funds.
In the event you drop a course or withdraw from the university, you may be due a refund of tuition you’ve already paid.
Depending on the length of course you are taking and when you withdraw or drop, your refund amount will vary:
|Course Length||Calendar Days 0–3||Calendar Days 4–7||Calendar Days 8–14||Calendar Days 15–21||Calendar Day 22 or more|
|Full Semester or Quarter||100%||100%||80%||60%||0%|

*Not valid for Maryland, North Dakota, or Tennessee residents. Please contact the bursar’s office for specific policies for these states.
You may be eligible to receive a financial aid refund when your financial aid/scholarships exceed the allowable charges on your student account. If you are receiving federal financial aid, you will need to review the policy for the appropriate lending agencies. Please be aware that the Return of Title IV Aid policy can affect the amount you are due—or will owe—if you are using federal aid to pay for your tuition.
If you have questions about receiving a tuition refund or federal financial aid refund, contact a financial aid advisor at 1-800-925-3368 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
