Students who are registered in a class have a specific period of time in which they can drop the class after it starts without being charged tuition for that course. See below for information regarding the deadlines for drop requests.
Please note: If you are unable to drop the class online in your student portal you should submit a written drop request via email or using the "Write Us" function in the Support tab of your myWalden portal. This ensure that the request is received in a timely manner.

No adjustments to registrations can be made over the phone.  A written request is always required to drop a class and the time-stamp on your email or webform is used to confirm if the request was received prior to the drop deadline.
