Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

I signed up with Walden thinking they would live by their promise "A lot of help in one place" They did not. I am getting ready to go to court with them unless they are able to rectify the current problem. Most Professors are fine. I am not impressed with their academic advisors. I think at least one of them is so involved in his own studies he loses sight of his duties to the student. There is too much money involved for errors to be made that leave the student holding the blade. I am sorry I did not pay attention to the article that says they have a very low retention rate. You could be a great student and Boom! out of nowhere you get a surprise you did not expect.....no problem if they take responsibility.....but they do not.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Walden is TERRIBLE. They lie to get you in. At the end they want you to do a portfolio and NO ONE WILL HELP YOU! They say each section is a mini assessment test. If you tge student need to make corrections they send the paper back to you with comments, redo/ revise papers over and over still they dont pass you. I have taken out thousands of dollars in loans they refuse to give me my masters degree. I have completed all the classes and did the portfolio work . For 5 sections i have done papers, 4,5, and 6 times and they still say my papers are not good enough. I'm thinking of looking up their "accredited" information and send them my papers along with a letter of disappointment.

Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2013

Be warned. They will take your money and drag you through useless course after useless course. Add at least 6 months to one year to your expected completion day. You will need to hire a proofreader, an attorney, and be prepared to fight with their accreditation approval committee if you want to ever graduate. Only if enough student's complain to the accreditation board will Walden ever be forced to change their money stream to benefit students attending the University. The question below asks "Would you recommend this school to others?" They need a "hell no" option - because hell no would I recommend this University to others

Save yourself money and headaches. Do not attend Walden University no matter how good it sounds on paper or how many course "pre-course" credits they offer you in advance. Get a root canal instead, you will enjoy it much more and it will cost you a lot less :)

Walden is terrible. You do not get proper support and help from staff. The enrollment counselor work on commission. They lie, you have to do a portfolio and you can not even get help...they are mini test. They say you have three tries to pass. They have failed me on 5 parts 4,5,6 times. Do not go to Walden.

Degree: Family Practice Nurse/Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, class structure has been appropriate , with a few variances with what had been required per instructor interpretation of class rubric. My current issues have been with the delays in practicum site approval process. Walden has no respect for outside organizations time, which directly affects my progression in the program. I plan to pursue my DNP, but for the price and peace of mind, it will not be at Walden University.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I just graduated with my BS in Psychology. I went to community college for three years then transferred to Walden for the last two. The curriculum is challenging, but well worth it. The professors are professional and are highly educated in their field. I did have one major problem with grading with one professor, but the issue went to the dean and was resolved. I really feel like I earned my degree, and I am now pursuing my MS in Psychology through Walden. One downside-this school is expensive, but I still felt it was worth the money. Overall a very good University.

Degree: Management Information Systems, General
Graduation Year: 2012

I graduated with PhD in (MIS), and most of the instructors are knowledgeable. I gained employment as soon i graduated as an adjunct faculty, because of the degree from Walden. Walden cannot award you certificate if you do not merit it. Instructors were so kind.

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2015

Don't do it. You will regret it. The program starts out well and the support from the program disappears quickly at the end. After taking nearly 60 credits of courses with a 4.0 GPA they decided to add four more course to the curriculum. They offer no assistance with the capstone. You will be on your own and frustrated by the end it is a guarantee. Please allow me to save you the heartache and bills. Do your homework before making this investment.

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2015

I went to Walden for my Masters degree. I was in the online accelerated Elementary Reading and Literacy Program. Overall, I loved the program. Yes, it was challenging and required you to put in the time. However, I worked full time teaching and went to school full time and was able to complete all my work so that my weekends were free. I thought the professors were very friendly, always responded quickly to e-mails and played an active role in student learning. I would highly recommend Walden, especially for the particular program I took. Great school. If I were to do it all over again I would make the same choice!
