If you can teach yourself and just need the information to learn from, then go here. I got my MS here and most of the teachers were good, but the advanced statistics professor refused to answer any of the students questions with only vague responses. Another psych professor couldn’t help 3 students so I had to teach them when I was a student! I got my certificate in I/O psych here and the professor for the leadership course was a joke. She wasn’t qualified and didn’t even know how to use blackboard.... Read More

I recently graduated from Walden University and I was pleased with the experience all the way. From the moment I decided to continue my education, they advisers were friendly, efficient, and available. If I ever had a question, they were quick to respond. The professors were professional, adequate, and thorough in their teachings as well as feedback on assignments. I recommend anyone who has previously taken college courses online to join Walden University. If you haven't taken online courses, I... Read More

I attended this school online after leaving the military to complete my masters. Do not take any classes with Benita Stiles! She lives in New Zealand while she teaches online. She does not respond to emails and she does not explain nor help with assignments. I did multiple videos for her class before she told me that they were incorrect. I asked for the ability to turn it in late so that I could follow her guidance but did not receive an answer. She declined and failed me after I asked for help multiple... Read More

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.

I have had a good experience with Walden. I began working on my MS in late 2016 and am now finishing my Capstone/Thesis (Feb 2019). Many people mention in their reviews that the school is expensive; if you research the school, it indicates it is a for-profit University, and not unlike many private schools. With that said, my total expenses were almost exactly what they told me they would be. Books are always expensive through a University bookstore; it does not matter if it's brick and mortar or...

So far I have no complaints about this university at all. I graduate in may, and all of my classes have run smoothly and communication with any teachers, advisors, financial aid people has been ok. The classes are challenging and most professors have been great, except one, but you can't expect all of them to be the same or great. People are individuals and have different ways of dealing with stuff. If you are someone who can handle dealing with multiple types of people and situations you should... Read More

If you have a Bach and you have worked in the field and you know how to really write and research and you do not need any help or feedback from anyone, than you can get a degree at Walden. Do not go to an online school for Bach degree. GO to a brick and mortar school. There are things you need to learn and access you need to have at that stage in your degree. Online schools, especially Walden, are about giving you the least amount of help. I have found everyone helpful but do agree about not upsetting... Read More

I would never recommend this school. The staff is very unprofessional and not able to provide any information for the university. You are better looking for another school or teaching yourself. Very expensive also for not getting any type of education.

This is my first two classes at Walden I was told that I had to take 2 classes to meet Walden's requirement LIES. They gave me the wrong prices for the classes LIES. I was told that all my aid went through and that it would be ok to start classes 2 and a half weeks late without penalties LIES. Walden informed me that everything was cleared with the professors and the University that my enrollment was completed late and by books came over two week after class started LIES.I just had to complete the...

Adult learners be aware. I'm very dissatisfied with the lack of empathy of instruction and circumstances. They seemed to more interested in money than with student success. Instructors seem to be facilitators of chatrooms rather than providing significant teaching of course material. Overall, I find Walden lacking quality instruction for course material. The technology of the chat room is a decade old with no video or lecture ability. Collaboration is great...however, it is mostly with students and... Read More

VIRTUAL FITS A BUSY LIFE. As a working professional, Walden was the perfect choice for me. The ability to do my coursework around my own schedule was of keen importance. There is a schedule and cadence of coursework to which one must adhere, so the flexibility comes from having no structured meeting time, not from lack of deadlines. YOUR SUCCESS IS UP TO YOU. In my coursework, there were no team meetings or group assignments which was much to my liking. I had years before experimented with another... Read More

I am a current student at Walden.I conducted several months of research before starting my program. I obtained two degrees from another online school.I really wanted my Masters and Ph.D. from a respected school and quality program which this is. They take the I/O psychology program very serious. I was able to have phone calls with key members of the department before I started. All professors are Ph.D. scholars in this department compared to BA/BS and Masters in other online schools.

Within the next few weeks, I will not be a student at Walden University. As an institution of advance learning their administrative business practices are inefficient and unprofessional. I have always thought that once an educational institution's main focus is on increasing profit margins and less so on the welfare of its students, and the quality of its pedagogy then there is bound to be a conflict of interest. The university's "unethical" practice to recruit as many students with a failure to... Read More

I read a bunch of the negative reviews - and I see some that I can understand the frustration and others that feel like sour grapes. All I can tell you is that I gained a lot from attending Walden and graduating with my MS In Social Psychology. I would say that 50% was Walden and 50% is what I put into it. I'll admit, I was a little worried when I witnessed some of the classmates I had in the first few courses. As a for-profit college - I think you tend to see people who really aren't prepared to...

I attended Walden from 2007-2010 for an MS in Psychology and again from 2012-2013 for a Post-Master's Psychology Certificate in Teaching Online. I'm currently employed full-time as a Program/Disabilities Coordinator for a medical school and I also work part-time as an instructor for a technical school (I teach a psychology course and an intro to online learning course). Walden definitely helped me get to where I am in my career today. I completed both programs solely online which was a huge help... Read More

I took a six months leave of absence. After becoming very ill and needed medical treatment. I send in the Doctors reports to them. But after the six months, they would not let me resume my studies. I appealed and they still would not let me resume my studies. When I asked them why? They stated that they did not have to tell me the reason why. I wrote an email to the university. They never replied to me. Do NOT go to this school.

I transferred to this University from another in my senior year because they promised I could shave months off of finishing my degree and offered me a semester free. When I transferred last year I was not alerted that I was enrolled in classes earlier than I was supposed to be and the classes I was offered "free" I got all F's in! This placed in on Academic and financial aide probation... I had a 3.6 GPA at the previous university.

BEFORE I received this official evaluation I had already started my classes (that i actually knew about this time) ....I was absolutely disgusted with the my math lab instructions that were given in the math class. There were steps of the problem that could not be explained in any portion of the help areas or in the text I had to google how to do actually do the problems. I ended up with an A in the class but it was because of google and ALL of my free time being dedicated to trying to find out how to properly do the problems.

The cost of this school is also outrageous. Their classes are 5 credit hours as opposed to 3 as most universities are, for the human services program it is 300.00 per credit hour so $1500P00 for one class. The net price calculator on the web site for rates is still on the 2010 school year, so it is reflecting much lower rates that what are currently being charged.

The support staff are always in a hurry just to get you off the phone and don't always give you accurate all. So calling for help is completely useless. I have transferred back to my old school and I am having difficulty getting transcripts from Walden to be applied at my school so that I can graduate......please do not waste your time or money on this school....they are very dishonest and your degree will pull no weight in the market place.
