Walden University partners with ECSI to provide students with an alternative to paying full tuition at the beginning of each term. Through ECSI’s monthly payment plan, you may spread the cost of your tuition over multiple months—interest free. The ECSI plan is not a loan, and there is an enrollment fee.
Simplify your school expenses with:

  • Convenient monthly payments that allow you to pay tuition in manageable installments.
  • Multiple payment plan options, including some that can be combined with school loan programs (if available in your country of residence).
  • Interest-free payments, which may eliminate your need for loans.
