Walden University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (348)
I am a current student at Walden.I conducted several months of research before starting my program. I obtained two degrees from another online school.I really wanted my Masters and Ph.D. from a respected school and quality program which this is. They take the I/O psychology program very serious. I was able to have phone calls with key members of the department before I started. All professors are Ph.D. scholars in this department compared to BA/BS and Masters in other online schools.
I am in a graduate certificate program. Walden offers coursework and degrees that help you meet your goal. Is it a Harvard or Yale? No. It is Walden University. Take it for the experience that it is. Don't judge. Enter, study, do more than you need to, and learn. Do not expect perfection because only God is perfect. I enjoy Walden and I recommend it. There are many whiny people on this site. Go study.
I really enjoyed going to an all online school. It was easy for me to work on my school work on my time and not have to worry about going to class. As long as I had access to the internet I could work on my homework anywhere. I could print the readings or just read them online. The papers seemed easy for me to write and I rarely had any trouble getting them done. Overall I was very satisfied with Walden.
This school shows the reason to stick with a brick-and-mortar as they lack efficiency. It all started applying to one of their graduate nursing programs. The "enrollment advisor" they had calling me constantly along with everybody else knew NOTHING about the program....yet they claimed to be from that department? They couldn't even answer a simple question about the practicum which is of great importance. If you can't finish the practicum which they don't even set up for you then you don't graduate. This is particularly important for those in graduate nursing programs. So not to be able to tell students about it and to call yourself an "advisor" for the program shows they don't care what happens to you once your foot is in the door and they take your money. They bombard you with emails and calls and I even had to request to speak with the supervisor after interactions with a rude advisor who basically told me he was going to keep calling me regardless if i didn't want him to. Should've knew I couldn't trust this school when they couldn't tell me the success rate of some most students in their programs such as the Nursing Informatics or NP programs. Now I have to start over elsewhere. Poor student service combined with people who don't even know a thing shows the quality of this school. Save your money and get a degree from a more reputable school whose name you won't regret carrying.
I selected Walden University because the university is regionally accredited and my degree has the 'gold standard' of specialized degree accreditation. States and employers look for CACREP accreditation, which Walden's MSCMH degree has. My professors have been invested in my learning and the program teaches me. You must be self-directed and be willing to commit 2-3 of time in the classroom every day. There is no time for a break. Nose to the books and you will do fine
Walden University prepared me for success in the Master of Science in Communication degree. My enrollment advisor, Kevin Gipprich, was outstanding. The faculty cared about me and were invested in my learning. I am pleased to recommend Walden University.
Excellent program for self directed, motivated, students. If your grammar is poor don't go or learn before you go. Some teachers are good, some not directive, but this happens at any school. I had the best dissertation chair. She helped me the entire way.
My experience as a student at Walden University has been quite positive. The professors whom I have had for classes were available, responsive, and demonstrated a personal investment in my learning. While there were some professors who were better at this than others, every professor was helpful to some extent. Having the opportunity to attend an academic residency linked me with other students and provided a sense of the university. Walden is a for-profit school and is honest about the status. I highly recommend Walden for working professionals who want an education. You must be willing to work for this degree. You will receive what you put into your Walden experience. Do not expect professors or staff to hold your hand and do the work for you. Be an adult, study hard, and you will excel.
I have had a great experience at Walen University. I just graduated cum laude and had a great time at graduation. Online education is not for everyone. It takes hard work and dedication. Everyone I encountered was very helpful, from academic advising, financial aid and enrollment advisers. Im currently enrolled for my master program. I would recommend walden to anyone that is discipline enough to do the work and put in the time and effort. I love Walden!
Please stay away from this college, especially DBA programs, they are just rip-offs, There is no real value and they are there just to suck your money, I am stuck there and lost money on this useless program and thinking to quit forever, trust me and look for some other good college
