Waldorf University Reviews
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!!
I am currently a student at Waldorf University in their online Bachelors of Criminal Justice program and I LOVE IT! The instructors are awesome, my academic advisor is a Godsend, the academic material is really engaging, and the work really helps you learn the material. This is a fair school that has a Christian foundation, I can't rant and rave more about it! Go Warriors!!
I just completed my MA in Organizational Leadership from Waldorf University. Due to my GPA from my undergrad program, they allowed me to double up my coursework. Because of which, it took me about 13 months to complete. I found the coursework challenging but not over the top. Classes are set up in 8-week terms. A typical format for each class has weekly message board postings, assessments, and papers. Most classes also have some sort of a final project as well. Waldorf University professors are sticklers for APA formatting, even for message board postings. I found the professors to be quite responsive and the support staff was friendly when I needed anything from them. I have nothing but positive things to say about Waldorf University and MA program. I picked Waldorf University over 2 other grad school programs and I'm happy with my choice.
