Attendance is required for ALL residency sessions in order to successfully complete your residency.
For the complete residency schedule, please see your confirmation email to download the Residency App. The daily schedule will be available two weeks prior to the start of the residency.
The residency classroom for your face-to-face residency will be available in Blackboard three weeks prior to the start of the residency. Before you arrive at the residency, you need to access this classroom to complete residency pre-work, review the residency learning outcomes and assignments, and print or save necessary documents.

You will continue to have access to the residency Blackboard classroom for 60 days after the residency concludes. However, from this point forward, you may need to access it by clicking on “Recent Courses” in your myWalden university portal. Once your residency is complete, the classroom link you have been using will be removed from your list of current courses.

For the purpose of your face-to-face academic residency, Walden will be utilizing hotel meeting room, convention center and/or hotel suite meeting space as the primary location for your residency sessions. Due to the layout of the meeting room space, transitioning short distances and/or the use of elevators, stairways or escalators to/from residency session locations may be required.
In addition, other groups or organizations (private or public, for-profit or non-profit) may be offering an event in meeting spaces adjacent to spaces dedicated for the Walden residency. Due to privacy regulations, Walden is not provided other event or group names until arrival at the venue. Walden does not endorse any event, group or organization hosting events in meeting spaces shared with Walden University. Additionally, as you are acting as a representative of Walden University while attending your residency, you are expected to comply with standards of professional conduct as specified in the Walden University Student Handbook.
The academic residency daily schedule is available through a Residency App accessible via smart phones, tablets as well as online via a website link. Daily sessions typically begin around 8 a.m. and last through early evening. The daily residency schedule will be available in the Residency App two weeks prior to the start of the residency. See your residency registration confirmation email for information about accessing the Residency App.
Walden uses a Residency App for all on-site information pertaining to your academic residency. The Residency App can be downloaded from your residency registration confirmation email two weeks prior to the start of your face-to-face residency. Some of the resources within the Residency App include:
Residency grades are posted in the myWalden portal under degree audit one week after the end date of the residency. Residency grades are not posted in the residency Blackboard classroom (Exception: PhD students attending face-to-face residencies).
Residency grades are either Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U) or Incomplete (I).
Participants in face-to-face required residencies have the opportunity to provide feedback about residency sessions. Data is used to improve and update the residency curriculum for each program. The survey questions for each residency session are located in the Residency App. Please complete the session feedback survey after each of your residency sessions.
Participants in face-to-face required residencies have the opportunity to provide input about residency faculty and staff members’ effectiveness and engagement in each residency session. Data is used in the performance review process for faculty and staff members. The survey questions for each presenter are located in the Residency App. Please complete the presenter feedback survey after each of your residency sessions.
Participants in all Walden residencies have the opportunity to provide feedback about their overall residency experience at the conclusion of the residency. Data is used to improve future Walden residency events. The post-residency surveys are emailed to participants at the conclusion of each residency.
