Steps to Apply For Federal Aid

Walden’s Title IV Code is 025042

STEP 1: Get an FSA ID

If you’ve ever completed a FAFSA, skip this step! If you’ve never filled out a FAFSA, get your ID in about ten minutes.

STEP 2: Fill Out the 2018-2019 FAFSA

This application is for federal grants and loans for college students. Walden’s school code is 025042. We’ll receive your FAFSA a few days after it’s completed.

STEP 3: Complete the Award Process

Once your eligibility is determined, you will receive an email from the Office of Financial Aid notifying you that your award is available for review.

What To Expect Next

After receiving your application, our Financial Aid Team will begin to process it. About a third of our students are asked to provide additional documentation to complete their application. Once your eligibility is determined, you’ll need to complete a few more steps and you’ll be set. For most students, Walden will disburse your funds late in the third week of class if you’re enrolled at least half time, have posted in the classroom during the first week, and have met all other aid eligibility requirements.
