"Waldorf University is great. The workload is very manageable. Most week's assignments are a 500 word paper ( 2 pages excluding cover sheet and references) Some people get tripped up on APA, I did all of the margins/measurements/fonts only one time then used it as a template. The teachers are beyond nice and would allow late work if you needed to. The hardest thing about enrolling was not being able to see the syllabus first. I would take two classes at a time and hope that I had one "easy" class paired up with one that was more time consuming. Out of the 12 classes I took at Waldorf, maybe 3 to 5 doubled up weekly assignments ( an essay and an assessment due ) The tests were mostly multiple choice but some required 200 word answers that could build up quick. You can see the test multiple times before submitting it, so look to manage time. The only time I took one class versus two a semester was for statistics. Something else I loved was that it is not incredibly well known. ( I used to joke the name " Waldorf" was more famous for the hotel or a salad). I liked it because it was not a common "online school" because unfortunately, those biases exist sometimes. If anyone looks it up, they see a cute brick and mortar school that has their own football team."

"Waldorf is Awesome! I earned my undergraduate degree here then got accepted into Southeastern Oklahoma State’s MBA program, but after a semester I came back to Waldorf. The professors are all great, give constructive feedback, and really want you to learn and succeed. The online platform is very user/friendly and never had any technical issues. The tuition is really fair compared to many other schools. I recommend this to any and all. Go Warriors!"

"I was a 100% online student. I took two classes every 8 weeks. I loved the fast pace of the school, plus you are taking the same total number of hours in a calendar year as in a brick and mortar university, except you get to really focus on the two classes at a time and not 5 or 6 classes/subjects every 4 months. It takes about 20-25 hours a week of study to do the readings and to write a paper every week. So you better know how to put your thoughts onto the page, and how to create a power point. The professor interaction is pretty low, so for the most part you are really teaching yourself. This is OK because of the structure of the school. At the end of the day you have to be a self-starter, be able to keep up with weekly deadlines, and be committed to finish what you start. No one is going to hold your hand. You get out of the program what you put into it. For me it was a 4.0 GPA, and a pretty nice job about 2 months after graduating. The occupational safety program is also now qualifies you to be a GSP, from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals and is a big plus for the program. Total cost is among the lowest in the nation, so if you have a life in the outside world it is doable with discipline. God luck!"

"After going to APUS, Waldorf was a breathe of fresh air! Classes are organized and the professors are wonderful! Also, I was greatful for how challenging the classes were. Most online programs are way to easy and you do not learn much from the program."

"Great school! I was allowed to double up on my courses during my graduate program due to my GPA, which I completed in 18 months. I enjoyed my time at Waldorf University in part due to the staff. I would recommend Waldorf online program to anyone seeking a higher education while working a full-time job."

"This is an outstanding university, top to bottom. As with most things in life, good communication makes all the difference. The Waldorf staff are very organized and do great with communicating upcoming events, reminders for deadlines and other miscellaneous requirements. Occasionally in online schooling, you would expect some hiccups due to internet outages, personal situations or emergencies. Each time I needed help, my Waldorf professor worked with me. I am so appreciative of the fantastic professors I worked with during my time with Waldorf. Waldorf was a perfect fit for me, as they accepted almost all of my transfer credits; for an Air Force member who is always changing locations, this is a big deal. I have and will continue to suggest that Airmen pursue their degrees from this fine, regionally accredited university!"

"This was the greatest experience I believe one could have for online schooling. Majority of my professors were excellent and the courses were insightful. All of my courses helped develop and equip me for the next phase in my life. One minor glitch is the timing in which they predict you will need to accomplish the assignments, you need at least 20 hours per course per week, so it is not easy to complete a degree on line if you are a working adult."

"Waldorf University is the best college to attend. I mean if I had known any better on how schools operate before this school I located last-year. Trust me, this is the number one school that students need to attend and the reason why? because the tuition is outstanding and it is included with your books and I mean no book grants, because everything included in your tuition, which will be $975 that's with a %10 discount a class and other schools are $1600 and up. Yeah will tell everyone about this university. Plus the teachers will work with you and the teachers are awesome! I promise I and I wish that more people will attend this university. Other colleges almost threaten students if they don't create more than two or three post they reduce your points but not this school. This college do not harass students about posting more than two post at all...The books will be delivered on time to your home. Email me and I can tell you more about this university...No long papers at all and think about it, It's up to the student to learn more and research..I can go on and on..."

"One of the things I appreciate with Waldorf is the support established to help students succeed in the course; however, there is no career guidance. After my degree I did not have any idea of the opportunities in my field of studies. It would be great to have someone who advises students about career paths in their fields, so that they can get a job after graduation."

"I attended Waldorf online and have zero complaints. Everyone I spoke with was outstanding, from my initial call inquiring about the programs, to registrations, to everything in between till graduation. I have nothing bad to say about Waldorf. They are a great school, only wish I flew out to Forest City to attend graduation in person. Anyone looking for a well priced, exceptional school, give Waldorf a call - Go WARRIORS!!"
