Overall = Good – I am almost at the dissertation process, and about 99% of the faculty I've encountered are accommodating. All of my expected credits transferred as promised, and the enrollment process was fairly quick. My recruiter was helpful, funny, and understanding, and was able to answer my questions with ease. Some of the course templates need a little work, but Walden is always making improvements. All but two of my professors have been excellent about submitting timely feedback (within a week), and all but one was fantastic about responding to e-mails. The cost is high, but it is worth it for the ease of completing a degree from wherever you wish ... home, coffee shop, Waikiki Beach, baseball game, you name it!

Hard Working and Knowledgable – The majority of students are hard working students with full time jobs. These individuals are highly motivated with a vast and varied experience background. Generally the students are supportive of each other and help encourage each other when needed.

Walden has offered me a great education with the flexibility that I needed to return to school. Raising a grandchild, working one full time job, and teaching one day a week minimizes the amount of time I would have to attend traditional college classes. Walden's online program helped me reach my goal of a master's degree, and has encouraged me to pursue my doctorate.

My Credits Was Not Transferrable – My classes that I took in Psychology at another school was not able to be transferred.

Intriguing, Educational, and Overall Interesting – Online courses are highly different from traditional classroom courses. These courses allows one to complete courses at their own convinience, without a strict and rigid schedule applied. However, the workload is a lot, but nothing that one can not handle. The registration was swift and simple. During registration I was able to utilize and apply credit from previous courses and work experiences.
As for the professors, they are very helpful, and always available and accessible when in need of assistance. Addition, to the peer-to-peer interaction, the fellow classmates get to participate in discussion posts. Through these discussion posts all students acquire a large volume of knowledge.
All in all, so far it has been a wonderful experience.

Discussion Board – Interaction with fellow classmates and faculty is great. Always informative, and insightful on the material currently of interest.

Educational Support from Faculty – Excellent, the professors work efficiently with you. Additionally, they are always available and willing to be of assistance

The faculty members are chosen for their academic and professional qualifications as well as their ability to help you apply what you learned. Many of the professors if not all hold doctoral degrees and they bring their expertise as well as their experience into the course.

Walden University encourages all ages, economic levels, religions, sexuality, and political stance to apply, Walden understands and respects the diversity and individuality of each student this understanding and respect allows the students to scrutinize their own biases of others in order to effectively work with each other and advocate for others.

Professor/Student Relationship – The instructors/student relationship with all the professors I had thus far has been excellent. They take there time with you and if you need extra guidance many will give you there cell or home phone number so that you can call them day or night. They are also great about writing reference letters when needed. The instructors believe in the students and they want us to succeed in all that we pursue.

I Wouldn't Go Anywhere Else – I love Walden. They actually show interest in their students by calling and always asking about how we are doing and feeling about certain aspects of our education and how they can improve. The flexibility and diversity of the classes also pulled me in because we work with people from all over the globe getting the global view on different topics that other wise might be losed in a regular classroom setting. I would always reccommend Walden to others and wouldn't plan on transfering to any other institution even if they paid me.

Very Flexible – I chose this school because it was online and worked with my schedule. I love that it is at my own pace although everything has to be in on Sunday it gives me time to handle my other responsibilities as well and I don't have to be in a classroom to get it done. The classes that I want are always available, I can take two at a time, the curriculum is not overwhelming, it is just right.

I beleive that they are excellent at answering your questions, listening to your concerns and making sure that the process goes as smooth as possible even when mistakes arise. They are very patient and understanding and work with you in a timely matter to get the issues resolved quickly and efficiently. Please don't wait until the last minute to do your financial aid and if you have already done it call ahead of time to make sure everything is in order so that you will not have problems when classes start.

Excellent Service – I have little experience with the career services but the time I did call the woman was very nice, listened to my concerns and directed me in the right direction. She wasn't impatient at all and catered to my needs very well without fault no matter if she was frustrated or whatever she never displayed it.

The Career Services at Walden are useless. There is no network with employers that one would expect to help graduates find work in their fields. I am not even marketable at this point in time because I do not have a Master's first in Psychology. So, I am going to have to wait until earning the PhD before I can apply in the field. In fact, Walden itself requires that instructors have a degree from APA-accredited courses to teach there!

Deep in Debt and No Job – Simply put, the education and training is not worth the exorbitant expense. After a 6 figure debt, I still do not have even a certificate which will land me a job in the field.

Online Pioneer – Some days I like my school, some days I don't. I will admit Walden is a pioneer in providing an online format for those of us who need an alternative educational setting for moving ahead in the work world. On the other hand, I am disappointed with the lack of regard for how the work world views online and non-APA accredited education and training. I am still out of work and few employers will accept my education and training at this point.

My Review – Walden has an excellent amount of helpful information on their site about financial aide and they are more than willing to work with you on this.

My Review – Walden has a good range of post graduate programs and appears to be aggressively expanding them as they see the need

My Review – While I am currently in the process or applying, it has been very easy. All of my questions have been answered fully to my satisfaction, and my advisor has been very forthcoming with me. I have had no negative interactions with the people or the site as yet.

The online library is very detailed when it comes to getting the information need.

Network Reliability – This is the first time I have evr taken anything online. At walden University they have made my experience so very easy and accessable. I have learned so much about the computer and applications on the computer. I recommend online classes to all my co workers because who has time to sit in a buliding to learn what we can do from home or anywhere the internet goes.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
