Walden University is an online education which provides updated technology and ease of information. The school provides great staff that help along the way, and the best part is that the school offers a convenient way to learn- in the comfort of your own home and still receive an optimal education, if not better, than a brick and mortar school. The flexibility of time and management is an ease for the working adult who has responsibilities outside the school walls.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of this graduate program are mostly the flexability it allows. I need to be able to complete my work when I am able daily and cannot stick to a regular schedule. The cons are missing out on the experience of interacting with the professor and other students face to face.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I have had a wonderful experience at Walden University. The pros of a graduate program are obtaining a higher level of education to pursue a career with a high salary. The cons of a graduate program are the debts accrued through student loans.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Since I am an older student, an on-line university is exactly what works for me. I enjoy the interaction and the ability to work at my own pace even with impending deadlines. The faculty is helpful and provide constant feedback. their are available when I have a question. Of course as most graduate students have to bear is the amount of moey it requires to attend any graduate school. an on-line university is competitive in pricing, so money is always an issue.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros: This program is online, so I am able to work it into my schedule. The work load is not overwhelming. The information is useful and thought stimulating. The cons: There is not a classroom environment where I am supposed to be at a certain time, which allows me to procrastinate. This program requires a fair amount of self discipline.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I just completed my first quarter here at Walden University. I was not just thrown out there because am a graduate student. Faculty and staff members have been helpful in many areas right from the beginning. For example, the advisor call me to see how I was doing. It was thoughtful for someone to call from the school instead of vice verse. Many times students get caught up with academics and assignments. A simple call to students is sometimes needed. I definitely appreciate their warm, kind and helpfulness. The school even has a writing center and an online library to assist me with my papers. This school deserves 10 stars which some of the survey did not apply because am an online student. Walden University offers both M.S. and Ph.D. programs along with the curriculum courses that very much interest me in comparison to other schools. Students are allowed to preview the materials before attending. In additional, an ideal schedule is already preselected for before each quarter. This makes it convenience for the students. You don't have to agree to the schedule because it can be changed. The only cons I have is getting use to the fast pace. However, I am really adjusting to it since starting the program. There is not any major problems am having that need fixing. I know and they tell you who to go to for support. I can always pick up the phone, email or find vital information on their website for any information needed. It is very necessary for any school to have good a support system which Walden University certainly offers.
