All students attending the residency must comply with the policies and procedures in the Walden University Student Handbook.
Prior to your Walden event, you will receive communication about Title IX/Clery Act training encouraging your participation in online courses titled called “Sexual Assault Prevention” and “AlcoholEdu for College”. These online courses are strongly recommended for all students in programs with a field experience, intensive, pre-practicum, residency, skills lab, or other synchronous on-the-ground or virtual experience requirement, and must be completed prior to your attendance. Additionally, this online education will empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that may affect you.
NOTE: If you have completed the Title IX/Clery courses within the last 12 months, you will not receive a link and will not be reminded to complete the training again for your upcoming event. Completion of these courses is strongly recommended on an annual basis.
The courses are an important part of our compliance with Title IX and Clery Act regulations and will take approximately 2 hours to complete. For those of you who are not familiar with Title IX and the Clery Act, they are comprehensive federal laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex and require certain safety and security policies to be put in place and data reported for federally funded institutions.
To fulfill Walden’s requirement, please refer to the Title IX policy information in your registration confirmation email and event website.
Advising appointment requirements for residencies, labs and intensives vary by program and are listed in the Blackboard classroom.
Follow the instructions in your registration confirmation email and event website to schedule your advising appointment(s) for the days/times you will be attending the event.
In most cases, you can reserve your advising appointment time(s) beginning 2 or 3 days prior to the first day of the event.
