How can I tell that Walden has received my FAFSA application?

Visit the myFinAid portal and go to the "Documents" tab found in the menu.

What will happen to my financial aid if I fail a class?

If you fail a class, your financial aid account will have to be reviewed for Return of Title IV Funding. If you fail a class that financial aid has paid for, the participation percentage in the term will automatically be reviewed. If the percentage is less than 60%, a portion of the financial aid that you received will be returned to the lender. This could create a balance on your account that you would be responsible for paying back to Walden.

I was notified that I was offered financial aid, what should I do next?

Once you are notified that you were offered financial aid you must accept the offer and complete any outstanding documents if you decide to use financial aid to fund all or part of your tuition. You can complete these steps on the myFinAid portal.

How do I set up the method of payment for any financial aid refund amounts?

You can set up or change the method of payment for any eligible financial aid refund amounts by visiting the Menu in your myWalden student portal, select "Quick Links", "My Finances" and "Manage Your Refund" . You will be able to update your address or direct deposit information.

Will participation in my program affect financial aid?
