Financial Services Forms

Wire Transfer Remittance Form

Wire Transfer Remittance Form - International

International Students should use the Student Finance Portal for Wire Transfer Remittance. U.S. Students wishing to pay their bill using a non-US bank should use the International Wire Transfer Remittance form.

Authorization to Release Information

As per the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) your financial aid records cannot be distributed to third parties without your permission, unless permitted by law. If you wish to provide approval for another person to contact Walden regarding your Financial Aid records, please complete the Release Form and submit it to the Office of Financial Aid.

Authorization for Credit Balance to Remain on Account

If you have an excess credit amount (you’ve overpaid your outstanding bill or had a refund credited to your account, for example) the funds are typically returned to students according to their preferred refund method. If you’d like to request that excess funds remain on your account, you must complete the Authorization for Credit Balance to Remain on Account form. This form must be completed each academic year you are enrolled and wish to have excess funds remain on your account.

Authorization for Excess Financial Aid Funds to Remain on Account

The U.S. Department of Education mandates that we have express permission from you, the student, in order to retain any credit balance generated from your financial aid disbursement on your account with Walden University. At the end of the award year, any remaining credit balance must be forwarded to you by the Bursar’s Office If you wish to have your credit balance retained on your Walden account, please complete and return this form.

Book Advance Request

You are eligible for a Book Advance if you are currently enrolled and your financial aid has been sent to the Lender for the upcoming term. Students who need assistance with the cost of their books may request a maximum Book Advance in the amount of $500.00. Students may begin to submit requests for a Book Advance four weeks prior to the start of their upcoming term.

If you have a past due balance or if your financial aid will not cover the cost of tuition for your term, you are not eligible for a Book Advance. 

If approved, you can expect to have funds sent to you based on your selected refund method within five business days.
