Federal Aid Options

The following are the federal grant and loan 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.

Application Deadlines

The Office of Financial Aid processes awards on a rolling basis. You are strongly encouraged to begin the application process at least six 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 for funds to be processed for that term or financial aid award year. 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.

Do you have questions about financial aid? If you haven’t yet applied to Walden, please contact an enrollment advisor at 1-866-492-5336 in the United States. If you are a current student, please contact a financial aid advisor at finaid@mail.waldenu.edu or call 1-800-WALDENU (1-800-925-3368).
