There are many programs available at Walden. It's strongest programs seem to be in behavioral sciences, education and administration, as far as I know. The curriculum is constantly being researched and upgraded to improve the quality of the breadth of learning the school is offering you. There are technicians always available 24/7 if you are having problems or have questions about the classroom or school website. The advisors sometimes can conflict on answers to questions about your particular course of study, so you really have to know what questions to ask and be on top of your own course of study. The library is amazing! It is a wealth of resources and there is always someone available to help answer your questions and lead you in the right direction. Professors are in my opinion luck of the draw. Most often, you get professors who answer questions quickly and in detail and are willing to be flexible with your circumstances if you're having a problem getting work in on time. However, I have had a few professors who were very slow to get in touch and by the time they got back to me,the week's assignment was over already and I needed to hand it in whether it was done correctly or not. These professors were the minority though and I think you have that anywhere you go to school. All the professors knew their stuff and are passionate about what they do, so that is very inspiring. Registration is typically very easy and flexible--there have been times I had to do it last minute because I was busy or there were unforseen circumstances, but I have almost never had a problem. The school is extremely enlightened and treats their students like gold when it comes to accommodating diversity and religious needs. There are a plethora of opportunities to do extra course work on top of your regular load if you are looking to widen the breadth of your studies or specialize in a particular area. The school has been amazing about trying to keep tuition costs regular for the last few years, understanding that the economy is bad and times are tough and wanting to encourage people to return to school despite financial issues. The school attracts people from all over the world, particularly who are working and raising families and looking to change careers. The people are fascinating and amazing and I have enjoyed my experience immensely!

I am working on a PhD in Clinical Psychology. I am raising a family and working full time. I can't wait to work on my classes at night after the kids have gone to sleep. The curriculum is very well organized and the school is amazing with finding answers to my questions. They are respectful of my life situation and personal needs, and are always working with me to help me succeed in my studies.

The school is a bit disorganized administratively, but the professors have been very good.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
You do have moments where you pay out of pocket however they work with you and long as pay off before the next quarter then you are fine

The student resource center is in an online environment but it is great! Whether it is financial aid or commencement information the information is listed in full detail. The message system used in the student resource center seems flawless and post responses fast. Very seldom do I have to reach out beyond the student center because such great tols and resources are list at my finger tips.

The network reliability and speed at Walden.edu is good. The reliability of the network is very good while the speed lacks a little. When I log onto the student portal the access is not immediate. Often times it can take up to a minute for all items on the page to load.

My academic adviser was very instrumental in assuring that I received as many transferr credits as possible. Initially I was enrolled in a major that did not accept many of my transfer credits. My adviser took the time to go through each program of study to find the one that would be the best fit for me. This helped to lower my tuition.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I am satisfied with the education that I am getting at this time in my life. Walden has made it very simple to apply for financial aid. The tuition is reasonable for a doctorate program. Understand what your goals are, start early, and take care to pay attention to the amount of money you have borrowed. Scholarships help tremendously!

I'm a psychology major, and my classes are exactly what I expected so far. I haven't had to take any crazy electives that have nothing to do with my area of specialization. In fact, all of the classes I'm taking this quarter are related to my major, which is nice because the material is super interesting to me. The workload for a psychology major here is intensive and practical but not overwhelming.

Mostly, my school consists of working-class people with full-time jobs or families. They often juggle many different roles in addition to being students. While they are happy to socialize and make friends, this is not a priority. They are getting an education so they can seek a different life or career.

The Walden community is a great learning environment.

The two main reasons I chose Walden University was its commitment to social change and the feedback from a peer that was attending at the time I was researching pursing an advanced degree.

I have had some great learning experiences and then some that were a little hard to connect with.

Affordable but I think its still a little high. But I want it so I pay what they ask for. It's the American way.

Career Center – I have not had much contact with our Career center, but I do believe they would work with you if necessary to provide guidance for job hiring opportunities.

The Writing Center – Walden has by far the best writing center in the world. They are very knowledgable about APA and other writing tools necessary for success.

The online libraries and other resources are amazing. This has to be one of my favorite things about Walden online. Scholarly resources are easy to find!!

The programs are very well organized. I am completing the online program, and the resources are good. Campus life, social scene, etc. do not pertain to me.
College Senior 2013-01-16T21:28:27Z
THe resources available for the online students is incredible. We all use our personal computers obviously, but technical support is always on top of things when we need them.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I am definitely getting what I paid for out of my education. I am glad that the financial aide department is there to help me because without them I would not be able to afford my education.

I have always had a good experience when dealing with the student body at walden university. A lot of them also attend the university so they know and understand what it is like to be a student.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
