Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Very disappointed with Walden University. The teachers rarely contacted you and took a couple of weeks to review classwork. Was on payment plan with financial services. Without any notice through email or phone, sold my account to credit collection agency while I was making payments.

Degree: Health Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The college is pathetic and they don't know what they are doing. They make it sound like they are there to help, but really their just there for the pay. All they care about is getting someone in a hole and laughing to their face. I took one class from them and never will finish their school. I am on Pell grant and they acted like it would pay for the class and it didn't. I passed the class with an A and now the stupid system wants $606! I hate the policies you have seven days to drop a class and they don't tell you anything. Mrs. Vikki Walsh is the one who informed me how great their college is! Walden is nothing but wolves in sheep skin. I cannot believe I fell for the fraud. I'm telling you the system is messed up and all the college wants is your dough they don't care about education. The work is a repetition of junk you already covered your not learning anything! There is no educational criteria when it comes to this college. The facility and college is a waste of time! I'm here to tell you this because I want you to have a better education than I did!

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2015

Walden was a great place to work to receive my bachelor's degree as a mom who also worked full time. I received enough financial aid to help me, and the classes were very relevant.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011

I loved the ease of everything being online. I had a full time job, and was pregnant and then a new born while attending. The teachers will quick to answer any questions and very supportive. The other students were easily able to be reached as well.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Like all education, the program is what you make it. It is not a walk in the park by any means. Instructors will not hold your hand and walk you through classes. You will not be "given" grades, you will work very hard to earn them. Online learning is not for everyone. Consider this to be more challenging than the traditional classroom setting.

Degree: Photography
Graduation Year: 2016

School is horrible - instructors never return e-mails and give little to no feedback. When it comes to writing the dissertation you are left out in the cold when other schools have you working from day one to find your topic and assignments build through each class Walden does not do this they expect you to research their chosen topics till you get to the end and then ok go for it do your topic now. Financial Aid states they will work with you to pay off amounts due but then after 90 days turn it over to some company that charge you $200 + in additional fees then when you do pay in full Walden states still not paid and will not write off Misc amounts that nobody can account for - DO NOT BOTHER WITH THIS SCHOOL!!!

Degree: Public Health Education and Promotion
Graduation Year: 2014

Walden University is what you make of it. If, an individual uses time management successfully, they will be okay. A lot of students want to schedule vacation trips, weddings and other activities during the school semester. Walden University does not support that. Walden University will make a student work for everything they earn. Sometimes, glowing reviews will come and sometimes it does not. My experience at Walden University was students who love shortcuts will not be successful. We had a group project in one of my classes. This young lady did not research or contribute for the group project. She received the same grade as all the students, who contributed. Later on, that student was dismissed because of plagiarism on her dissertation. The issue is not during coursework; the issue is the dissertation phase, if one cheats the process in the doctoral program; one will pay for it later on. I guess what I am trying to say is Walden University did not give me anything, it is not a diploma mill. The doctoral program is real as they come. You have to work as hard as any brick and mortar school, and you do not have face-to-face instruction; therefore, discipline and time management is key to your success. Students that do not succeed will want to put a spin on it, but one not willing to work hard should not come to Walden University; those students that are willing to work should.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Walden is very unprofessional, Ramy was my admission and they do say they keep record of everything, but it only happens to the things which will benefit them. Make sure to ask them to email you everything otherwise the answer can change. teaching is not the best. Spend your money somewhere which you can get better education. I had to spent so much time talking and waiting for manager or... to call me back to see what can be done for the mistake but no resolve and they didn't care about the mistake they made

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2016

After completing this program I have a diploma but I do not feel like I know what I need to be a entry level FNP. I attempted to pass my national certification and am now having to go back to learn material that was never covered in school. Save your time and money... Go to a school that will teach you what is needed for your boards and not wasteful data entry and other things that are not needed for your degree.

Degree: Computer/Information Technology Services Administration and Management, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

Please DO NOT choose Walden, and DO NOT lose your time and DO NOT waste your money! I am new (Since 2013) in the USA with no English background and I learned it by myself. I am a computer software engineer (BS graduated in 1990) and I am the owner of an IT company in my country to design Databases & Information systems for more than 100 industrial factories. I got my MBA in 2015 and decided to develop my knowledge in the contemporary computer sciences. I am 49 and I don't want, and I have no time to be an English expert! I attend to DIT online program in Walden! I was only an online DIT student for five weeks, but the professor instead of teaching computer courses, tried to teach English course! He didn’t know any things about practical projects, and I think he misunderstood the course title! He replied my assignments feedbacks with sending offensive and ridiculous words. He didn't understand the difference between the native and international students. He asked me to prepare a power point presentation and speak on the all slides, I did but he replied me with mocking sentences about my accent. I, with long time experience in software development field in the real world (not just academically) will not accept such behaviors from a person who I never saw him. They waste my time. They send me tens of letters for tuition fee, I answered to them many times do dispute and forget it, but they sent it to the collection agency. Surely I will not pay a dollar for such service to them. I wrote to them: “It is much better to forget otherwise I will sue you, and I will prefer to say my words in the court via my lawyer”. I apologize if my English writing was not in formal style because I learned English by myself, and I came here to improve my professional technical skills, I have no time many years to be an English professional or a linguist.
