Tuition reductions are not retroactively applied. Tuition reductions are applicable to tuition only and do not apply toward books, materials, and other supplies or fees needed for a course. Students are responsible for other non-tuition costs, including but not limited to university and program and custom-related fees and taxes. Any tuition reduction will end with any change or completion of current program or start date. Subsequent tuition reductions will be based upon what is being offered at that time. Any unused portion due to a break in attendance will be forfeited. Walden may change the tuition reduction offered hereunder at any time, but such change will not affect the tuition reduction for students who are currently enrolled at Walden and using the existing tuition reduction. All tuition reductions, grants, or scholarships are subject to specific eligibility requirements. Contact a Walden University Enrollment Specialist for details.
