 Learning Commission.

 program within stated program lengths during AY 2019-20.

 WALDEN CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY 

 The university refunds tuition and fees according to these policies and in accordance with applicable

 federal regulations. Students receiving federal financial assistance will have funds returned to the

 appropriate lending agencies in accordance with applicable federal guidelines. Federal aid that may have

 been awarded to students may be adjusted by reducing, reallocating returning funds to federal

 programs if disbursement has already occurred.

 

 Course-Based Programs:

 

 Dropping Courses

 Students who drop courses during the drop/add period will receive an account credit. Students may request

 a refund of any resulting credit balance on their student account by submitting an e-mail request

 to  refund@mail.waldenu.edu.

 

 The withdrawal date for federal financial aid purposes is not the same as the withdrawal date processed

 by the Office of the Registrar to determine tuition adjustments. Federal student aid may not cover all

 charges due to the university that result from the return of funds upon the student’s withdrawal, and

 students may owe a balance to Walden.

 

 Prior to withdrawing or making any enrollment changes, students should contact the Office of Financial Aid

 to determine if the change will result in a return of funds and to understand the financial options to get back

 on track for future terms.

 

 Tuition Refunds

 Tuition reductions are applied to the current term and may not be retroactively applied for any reason (see

 also Tuition Reduction Benefits). Students should review their current billing statement to ensure that their

 tuition reduction has been applied appropriately. If students have any questions, they should contact their

 enrollment specialist.

 

 Refunds resulting from a student’s withdrawal from courses and/or the university are based upon the

 effective withdrawal date (as confirmed by the Office of the Registrar). Residency fees are nonrefundable

 after 10 calendar days before the residency start date.

1 Cost is not an estimate of individual experience and will vary based on factors including but not limited to: individual progress, part-time vs. full-

time enrollment, credits transferred, unsuccessful course completion, tuition increase, leaves of absence, job obligations or other personal

circumstances.

2 Non-Degree Individual Courses marked NA are not “programs” and, therefore, program completion rate data does not exist.

3 Based on official withdrawal records of Maryland students in academic year 2019-20. Non-Degree Individual Courses marked NA are not

“programs” and, therefore, program completion rate data does not exist.

4 Median Loan Debt for the purposes of this disclosure is the loan debt for federal and private loans (Walden does not offer institutional loans) for

all Maryland students who completed the program during the most recently completed award year. Median Loan Debt also includes additional

funds borrowed by students that are used for other purposes besides tuition costs and fees. Non-Degree Individual Courses marked NA are not

“programs” and, therefore, program completion rate data does not exist.
