I enjoyed going to Walden, but do feel it was a little over priced and not a lot of communication. I wish they would spend more time and explain the program and wish there was more communication with the teachers. They expect the students to be on all the time and they should be available. I also noticed that each class and teacher have different ways of doing things instead of things being standard. I did meet a few teachers that went above to make sure that the student understood the material and was very helpful. The financial part is not good at communicating either. I was told that all my classes would be covered when I first started and now that I am almost done I have a huge bill to pay! Not very happy about that

Decided to return to school after years of procrastination to pursue my MSN. Program meets expectations but requires much discipline and time management skills. I'm a single mom and works full-time plus take 10 credit hours per 11wks do my schedule is busy. They are very strict on A PA formation. Spent most of my holidays writing papers but it will be worth it in the end! Almost done with my first year come May. All instructor have been helpful expect them to hand you nothing you will work for everything. I'm an A average student at this time with a 4.0 accumulated GPA. Only flaws I have to stay on my Academic Advisor and there are no financial incentives for academic accomplishments offered at graduate level so I was mislead a little by financial aid representative at enrollment. Excited about what's to come and ready to get the 2 yrs total over.
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!
