I recently graduated from Walden University with a doctoral degree in business administration. I think that the program was manageable and challenging. I was able to complete my degree in a little less than three years, but the process was not easy as I am also employed full time. I think that the university gets a bad reputation, which I don't believe is always accurate. If a person is dedicated and willing to put in a significant effort, the degree is obtainable. By design, doctoral degrees are not cheap or easy to obtain. Students need to manage their time wisely and work hard to be successful.
Did not graduate but did enroll some years ago. After college counselor had me enrolled helped me with every thing once enrolled, I felt as if i no longer had support so I very like i was tricked into the school because i was promised to receive assistance and support and that never happened. So I withdrew from classes with a debt and nver heard fron them again besides sending bill (debt owed to them). Rhis is when foinf to school online was very new and not many schools were doing it.
Not what I am expected. I was told many promises and school did not deliver. No help from administrative office during program. Are there any other dissatisfied students? I believe I am due all of my money back!! .......................................
This university is a fraud. I haven't been able to complete my MA in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in counseling because I couldn't find a field placement. When I contacted the school for assistance, I was provided with an excel sheet with site locations previous students have used. The locations (I checked within the state of NJ since that's where I'm from) were 2-4 hours away from my location. I was also told to google locations. When I did, I contacted the possible site locations & learned that universities within NJ like Rutgers, Montclair, and/or WPU student's get priority over a student from Walden who doesn't have a relationship with these possible site location. My time at Walden was a complete and utter waste. I spent over $40,000 on this fraudulent school. I don't understand how they continue to exist! I regret the moment I contacted them. Until this day, I'm unable to obtain my degree.
This school lacks seriously in customer service, especially after one grads. I have been waiting for them to deliver docs to another state for endorsement. It is impossible to call in as they do not answer their phones and the representatives are really cocky in the chat feature and unable and unwilling to solve anything. I also had to pay twice for official transcripts (and wait 2 months) for them to be processed. Admission is a breeze, clinicals a headache, post grad communications (translation: once they milked you dry) are impossible and they don't give. Walden, understand this, this NP here is NEVER referring a single student to you, and those unfortunates misguided into thinking to attend I will turn around. Thank you.
This has got to be one of the worst colleges in existence. This university prolonged my degree for 14 years, and my dissertation for 7 years. I am a half million dollars in debt and still never finished my PhD because I was not able to find a practicum or internship site, and this university never placed me. They took my money all through college and once I was required to do my field work, they turned their backs and never provided a clinic. So now I am stuck with all this student loans debt and no degree. BEWARE, I AM SERIOUS STAY AWAY, OR YOU TOO WILL BE SORRY, AND WILL NEVER FINISH YOUR DEGREE. . ABSOLUTE WORST DECISION I EVERY MADE!!
please read be aware this Walden university will gonna s**** your life put you in debt send your information to a collection agency because they don't care. I had a student loan and I asked for drop a semester due to the death in my family. they returned my loan to the creditor and sent my info to a collection agency.
The program in my opinion is designed to milk money from students. I managed to graduate after four years because I persevered. The Professors are ridiculous as many of my colleagues could not graduate after obtaining loans over $100,000 each. I do not recommend Walden for anybody, NOT even my enemy.
This University should have their accreditation revoked for not meeting disability accommodations for those in need as well as allowing racial discrimination and bullying from instructors. I attended it for two years because of two post shoulder surgeries and needed time to recovery, which took over six months. After the surgery I needed to attend physical therapy and could not type and needed to locate a good source of income to provide me with software to accommodate my needs. One year post graduation I was attending my 1st residency insulted by an instructor as well as her informing me that she would fail me if I did not meet her needs. Mind you, she did not even state Walden's academic requirements even with my disability accommodation. I was later informed that I would be withdrawn even with disability accommodations because I took a term off and reported the insulting instructor. WALDEN IS HORRIBLE.
HORRIBLE. I was engaged in class until the last end of it and they could confirm over the phone the last day of participation was the end of January 2019, classes ended the beginning of February. Due to the participation "not being an assignment" it does not count and I was considered inactive with NO communication of this. I was told graded parts of the course are counted as participation (discussion is the last thing I posted on and did no count). I got rude emails back form my advisor, hung up and transferred from Financial Aid Department and told I owe them $1200 for the semester. It took them over a week to not get back to me about the concern. I received no emails or communication about being inactive, warning of becoming inactive or that I now owe them money. The course itself is set up messy and disorganized. The assignments are not geared to help students critical thinking and application.
