Timing and Requirements

Walden's academic residencies and labs are face-to-face or synchronous virtual learning experiences that align with critical stages of your online coursework and allow you to collaborate and network with other Walden students, support staff, and faculty members.

In order to be successful in your program, you should attend your required residencies, skills labs, and pre-practicum experiences within the University's recommended timeframe. Please note: In many programs, you must complete residencies or labs before you can move forward in your coursework.
