Policies and Procedures: Veteran Students Tuition and Fees Policy

Veteran Students Tuition and Fees Policy

Pursuant to Section 103 of the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, any student who is receiving tuition assistance under Chapter 31- Vocational Rehabilitation or Chapter 33- Post 9/11 GI Bill® will be permitted to attend or participate in the course of education beginning on the date the individual provides Walden University a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under those chapters and ending on the earlier of the following dates:

  • The date on which payment is made to Walden University; or,
  • 90 days after the date Walden certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.

Walden University will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, library or other institutional resources or require that a covered individual borrow additional funds due to the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to Walden due to the delayed disbursement of funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs under Chapter 31 or Chapter 33.

Individuals are responsible for any balance of tuition and fees due to Walden University that is not covered by their educational assistance. Walden reserves the right to exercise collection efforts on balances that are the responsibility of the individual.
