"The classes were great. However, despite turning in a notarized statement and a picture of me holding my ID, then doing a 3 hr phone review while on vacation on Valentine's Day I was told they could not verify my identity, after attending a few sessions already because my roommate signed up and I let him borrow my laptop. They refused to process anymore financial aid for me or sebd an official transcript to the college i applied to after"

"I hate Walden Refund policy most colleges now have Bank mobile but, not them they take your money then wait a whole week before they even decide to give it to you and then. Most colleges once the school disburses the money you get your money the same day not them you have to wait."

"I just started at Walden University, and I think it has been a great school. My professors engage in everything we do. If I have any problems, they will email me to make sure everything is ok. Also, my advisor calls me every week. To me, this is the motivation I need to succeed in my business administration and management degree. I am a procrastinator and like to wait until the last minute. But I am getting better with my time management, and other skills needed. Sometimes I need help in certain areas, so I ask for help. They have always been there for me, so it is my duty as a student to be there for them and do my best in everything. Good luck to all that are still in school, or everyone that has graduated. May all your dreams come true."

"The Business Program is riddled with problems. One of which is too many students and not enough people despite plenty of incoming money. Another issue is redundancy, meaning same types of courses from one degree to the next. Another - Curriculum that has not been revised for several years. Another - Professors that have less experience and degrees than you. Another - professors who are on an online ego boost. Another - don't have a serious issue in life - no one will help you."

"This is a great school. The teachers are very helpful, the finance department will correct mistakes very quickly, and the assignments are challenging but doable. This is a school for employed, computer literate people who have busy lives outside of school. The staff is very supportive. I have been in college for 12 years, to me it seems that all these people who give bad reviews just don't want to do the work or they chose a degree that they don't like."

"I have had a horrible experience with the student support and counseling department with Walden University. The latest issues have been fighting with the Financial Accounting Management Office. I received a FINAL DEMAND FOR PAYMENT NOTICE on March 2nd, 2017 with the notice dated February 9th, 2017. I immediately call the number on the notice and spoke to a lady who did not identify herself. I was incensed to receive this final notice with the threat of collection not having received the first notice nor having ant reference to what was owned. When I attempted to question the individual, she hung up on me. I called again and got a recording that all representatives are busy. I stayed on the line for over 30 minutes while at work to eventually leave a message, which was never returned. The following week I called the main number and spoke to a gentleman and explained the circumstances where he looked up my account. He informed me that I owed $643.80 and that the notices most likely went to my student email. I was incredulous to the fact that notice where going to a student email with not follow up by regular mail, having not used this email in over a year when dropping from the program. I made a check out for the amount and placed it in the mail thinking I was finished with Walden to receive a letter of the collections on Monday the 13th, with a $131.85 additional charge. I placed a call again to the Financial Accounting Management Office to be placed on hold again for a half hour to receive an electronic message to leave my contact information. I have since made two calls where I finally spoke to someone who transferred me to the same number that placed me on hold and eventually messaged that they could not accept the call and leave a message. Since my first call on March 2nd, I have spent a total of 6 hours on the phone to pay a $643.80 bill with no satisfaction. Ive spoken to 3 people outside of the Financial Accounting Management Office asking what I need to do to get someone to return my calls on getting this issue resolved and their response is to talk to someone in the Financial Accounting Management Office."

"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."

"Walden is a for Profit school beware. I am an Alumni and made every attempt to finish my second degree with them this was a very difficult task to complete as it is for many other students. Look for a school who has the same goal as you do. A University who will partner with you to finish your degree with the least amount of financial burden as possible!"

"I chose Walden for convenience. I was working full time, and raising three children. I started in the DBA program, but had such a hard time getting the dissertation committee/topic/research project worked out that I cut my losses and got an MBA. The courses were not well constructed, so the "professor" to use the term lightly, would pose questions and topics that were not easy to respond to. The courses seemed to be written and managed by people who had never, ever seen them from the other side. Instructors are very well paid for their efforts, and it is just a business for profit. It is not an esteemed university, in it for the greater good of humanity through education. It costs a fortune, and you essentially buy your degree. You will end up frustrated and angry, especially when they show you their expensive new commercials, and and ask you repeatedly how you are positively affecting the university with your expensive degree. I would love to know how the president and faculty are changing the world, but they never have to disclose that. Run, do not walk to another school."
