  • You should now be fully registered for the residency.
    Please note: The following page may ask you to confirm the dates of the residency – if you get this message, make no adjustments to the dates and hit Submit Changes as the changes being made are to your account, not the residency information.

  • Your confirmation of the registration being successful is the residency’s appearance in the Future Courses section of your myWalden portal homepage. An official confirmation email for the residency, with information about location and times, will be sent to you within 24-48 hours from Academic Residencies.

If you experience an error in the registration process or have additional questions, please contact an Student Success Advisor or the Customer Care Team.
