Academic residencies are held throughout the year in locations across the United States and abroad. Walden residency locations are determined based on numerous factors including, but not limited to, state and national accreditation/licensing guidelines, geographic locations of students in Walden residency programs, and meeting space size and availability. We carefully research and select our residency cities and venues and work to offer you several domestic and international options which vary from year-to-year. While we may not be able to offer an academic residency in close proximity to your state/country of residence, we carefully consider your travel and budgetary concerns as we develop our calendar.
When planning your U.S. residency(ies), note that Walden typically offers academic residencies in Georgia, Texas, Florida, Minnesota, Maryland and California. Cities in these and any other states are selected based on the above criteria, as well as flight availability and access to and from major airports across the country and around the globe.
As an online institution with a global reach, Walden also offers some residency opportunities outside the 48 contiguous U.S. states (for students in select doctoral programs). These unique opportunities (previously offered in San Jose, Costa Rica; London, England; Paris, France; Barcelona and Madrid, Spain; and Istanbul, Turkey) provide you with the opportunity to engage in cultural activities before or after your residency sessions.
Please note, residencies outside the 48 contiguous U.S. states are available for students in select doctoral programs. Fees for these residencies, if available for your program, vary based on location and are higher.
