Cancellation Policy

Cancellation Policy for Residencies Occurring in the 48 Contiguous United States and Virtual Residencies

You may cancel your registration within your myWalden university portal without penalty, provided the cancellation request is made at least 30 days prior to the start of the residency. Cancellations between 30 and 11 days prior to the residency start date will result in a refund minus a 5 percent cancelation fee. If you cancel after this deadline, you will be billed in full for the residency.

 

Cancellation Policy for Residencies Occurring Outside the 48 Contiguous United States

You may cancel your registration within your myWalden university portal for an international or non-contiguous U.S. residency without penalty, provided the cancellation request is made at least 84 calendar days (12 weeks) prior to the start of the residency. Cancellations between 84 and 42 days prior to the residency start date will result in a refund minus a 5 percent cancellation fee. If you cancel within 42 days (6 weeks) of the start date, you will be billed in full for the residency.

Cancelling Due to an Emergency / Petitions

If you are cancelling your residency due to an emergency, you may submit a Residency Petition form and supporting documents within 14 days after the event to request a possible refund of residency registration fees. Submitting a petition does not mean that your registration will be cancelled. Students will be asked to provide documentation supporting the student’s need to cancel the registration after the deadline. Documentation needs to provide evidence that the reason for late cancellation was unavoidable and unforeseeable.

Petitions and supporting documentation must be submitted to your academic advisor no later than 14 calendar days after the residency ends. There are no exceptions to this policy. If you do not cancel before the cancellation date and do not have an approved petition through the above petition process, you will be billed and expected to pay the residency fee, whether or not you attend(ed).

Contact your academic advisor for additional details about residency petitions and cancelling your residency due to an emergency.
