I learned and enjoyed my time at Walden University. I believe getting the doctoral degree is serving me well in my current position. I think the professors, chairpersons and the second/URR committee persons are what really makes the difference. I finished with having a great chairperson and committee. However, I initially did not have the same good graces. My committee helped me to use the education that I received and interject it into the dissertation/case study. My committee talked to me, educated... Read More

Walden University was a great school until I reached the dissertation portion of the PhD program, I had a bad teacher and wasted 2 years then was approved and a new person was added to my team and he said I had to start over again because it wasn't an appropriate PhD study. No refund, nothing. Also, I was told 42,000 to get degree, I went every semester with all A's until dissertation portion. I graduated with $372,000 in student loans I owe. I tried to switch school and I would have to start dissertation... Read More

I would write to many students and receive no responses. Additionally, very few students would write me initially in the discussion post. They had their favorites. I teach classes that never happens everyone... Read More

BeWare of Walden University. Research Class Actions Suits against them. I wish I would have listened to the warnings I read. It is a bait and Switch. The enrollment advisor will be very helpful. Once you are a student you have not advocate in the program. I have been told, "Sorry we cannot help you" so many times! Your academic advisor is probably a temp employee who can do nothing to help you. I am leaving this university with a lot of dept. I know of others who did so much more than I did just... Read More

I applied for the PhD program last year with Walden University. I had to drop due to a mis-communication between the Admissions Representative and myself. I have emails to back up that he did not get my logged in for the semester in time so I could not view Blackboard for almost a whole week after the class started. I was told during this space of not having access to send the DOE of the program a message saying I was committed, which I was but unknowingly sent thinking I would have access to the... Read More
