Students who do not register for a regular course along with the residency may apply for a loan through a private lender.
Visit the Tuition and Financial Aid page on the WaldenU website for more funding options. Please consult with a Financial Aid advisor to determine whether you may qualify for financial aid.
If you are expecting a financial aid refund to help cover non-tuition residency expenses, refunds are released by the Bursar's Office 14 days after the date of disbursement. The Bursar’s Office cannot expedite refunds. Keep this in mind as you make plans to cover the costs of attending a residency or lab.
