See the Residencies website for important information about when and how to register for your academic residency(ies).

You are able to self-register for residencies using your myWalden portal. To do so, first log in to your myWalden portal. Depending on when you started your program, you will either use Degree Works or the Degree Audit to register for residency. Directions for using Degree Works are found on Walden's Self-Registration page.

  1. Once you are logged into your portal, on the left side of the page select View Degree Audit under Records and Registrations.

  2. Under the Registration, select the Register for Class/View Degree Audit link.

  3. In the drop-down menu of available terms, select the appropriate term for registration and then click Submit.

Note: Visit the Academic Calendar page or contact an Student Success Advisor for assistance in determining which term you need.

  • You should now be fully registered for the residency.
    Please note: The following page may ask you to confirm the dates of the residency – if you get this message, make no adjustments to the dates and hit Submit Changes as the changes being made are to your account, not the residency information.

  • Your confirmation of the registration being successful is the residency’s appearance under the Future Courses section of your Academics Page. An official confirmation email for the residency, with information about location and times, will be sent to you within 24-48 hours from Academic Residencies.

If you experience an error in the registration process or have additional questions, please contact an Student Success Advisor or the Customer Care Team.
