Walden University will release a refund if a credit remains on your account after a payment, financial aid disbursement, or university credit has been applied. We are required by law to automatically send you any credit balance via your selected refund option. You have the option to have your refund released by direct deposit to a checking or savings account or a paper check. 

To change your refund option for the first time, go to your myWalden portal and click the "MENU" icon on the top left. Here you will select “My Finances” under “Quick Links,” and then you can select "Manage Your Refund.” ​You can now select your preferred refund method.
