Degree: Healthcare Administration

Walden is a university with a diverse group of students and faculty. They are very well oriented in the success of their students and a culture of change. They strive for the students and faculty to participate within their communities bringing change through community service. I would highly recommend anyone to checking out this university for future endeavors.

Walden university is a great online school.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

As a non traditional student returning to college was a difficult choice; however Walden University made the transition very smooth. Taking online classes towards a Masters in Human Resources Management has allowed me to manage being a single parent and working full time. The staff at Walden has been very supportive and I believe I am receiving the best education here. I encourage others to check out Walden University as well.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Hi, I am currently a graduate student pursuing a Doctorate of Nursing Practice at Walden University. I received my MSN last year in 2015. Please consider me for this scholarship. Walden is a great institution with thoughtful instructors. I found the curriculum to be well-designed and very informative. I completely understood what was expected of me as a student and how instructors could contribute to my success.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Walden University has been a pretty good experience for me. The school is 100% online, but at some point you will have interaction with your peers. Every student is required to attend residency, which is held at various locations across the USA. At these residency's, you will meet faculty members, and students that's in your degree program. The only negative I have about the university, is the review process in the 9000 level courses. I feel that given the level of the course, they should be structured better. Students can spend a lot of money, and stay in these courses forever. Overall, I am enjoying the program. Now I'm just looking forward to graduating, and applying my knowledge to businesses in my area.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2014

I would like to say that Walden University is the best that I have attended. I am currently in school now to succeed in obtaining my second degree in Marriage, couple, and family counseling. Walden has staff/faculty who truly care about their students making a social change. After being enrolled two weeks, I received a follow-up call from the academic advisor to ensure that taking the courses were going well. The staff reach out anytime a student is in need. However, I know of several people who have attended Walden University a few times like myself. If anyone every have the opportunity to attend Walden it will be an experience that they will never regret. Every student should choose Walden, as you will be ensured the opportunity to make a social change in the world today.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The online programs for masters degrees in psychology and social work are incredible at Walden University. I am thankful to have found a school that supports my full time employment while taking a full time course load. I've found that the coursework is incredibly applicable as someone who already works in a related field and have felt encouraged in my pursuit of this career. The online programs are very well organized and students are well supported. Communication with professors or other employees is easy and quick. I've found that the cost of this university is comparable to other similar programs, but this program will allow me to earn my degree faster than others, especially those that involve on campus participation.

Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

Walden University has been great in all aspects. The admission process was clear and concise as well as financial aid. They are an online school but they offer all the support and resources that students truly need in order to be successful. I am glad I chose them to complete my masters.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Distance learning takes some time to get used to, especially if you are returning to school many years after your undergraduate program. Walden provided me the opportunity and flexibility to work my full time job while completing my degree. My program is CACREP accredited, which gives me a significant advantage for licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Illinois. My only negative comment is there is no placement program for required field experience. They do provide some resources to get you started, however.
