I began my MSW program with Walden U on November 27, 2017. So far, my experience has been awesome! Excellent support, especially for an online program and for this being my first online experience. The academics are challenging but exhilarating, and my professors are responsive and helpful. I already feel like i have learned so much in my first two weeks. This was one of the best decisions of my life!

This vision and mission of Walden University definitely played a factor in my decision to attend this university. Once I applied for this school, I instantly received a phone call from an enrollment advisor greeting me, encouraging me, and telling me how excited they were that I chose Walden. I currently have a friend that goes to Walden that also inspired me to choose this college because they really integrate in helping all walks of life in achieving getting a degree no matter your socioeconomic, personal, or financial situation and this was an important asset for me. They assured me they were there to help get me through my journey and would frequently call to check on me during this process. By advancing my education, I plan to take my experiences and transform myself into a scholar practitioner that will positively change my community.
Generally I have a rather negative outlook on "For Profit" Universities, so when i decided to attend Walden University, I was skeptical to say the least. I was pleasantly surprised to find that despite many of the classes and undertones having a "Liberal" leaning, opinions and diversity of all schools of thought were not only accepted, but encouraged. The schools primary message of making positive social change rings true with everything.

They offer tremendous resources for all students including tutoring, writing help, tuition reductions in some cases and an extensive library. Even the schools bookstore is fairly priced.

The student body is diverse with students not only from all over the US but the world. The school does things quickly, offering 6 week classes as the norm, all of which are loaded with info, so it's not easy, but can finish quickly. The staff will also do anything in their power to help you succeed.
