Waldorf is a multidisciplinary school that provides resident and online programs to many students of different backgrounds. I am a United States Military member pursing my education to become an Emergency Management professional. I am proud to study at Waldorf because I feel understood and provided for. Professors and staff are willing to work around erroneous schedules and difficult times in life. The online experience provides a great personal manner that relates the student and entire class together with the professor.

Every professor and staff member I've dealt with has been professional, caring, and supportive. My educational goals are given a highlight and I am driven to achieve and exceed them with a backbone of faculty and students to help.

Their online program is very easy to work. The student advisors are great at communicating and assisting with signing up for classes and degree completion. They always respond to messages within two days. I have also always been assisted with completing forms for my job. Everyone is very nice and knowledgeable. The classes are very well priced as well, especially for online courses. There is a wide variety of courses to choose from, and varied degree plans. I would recommend this school to anyone. They also give out some awesome swag for free, to students. I have received a t-shirt and coffee mug, and I use both frequently.
I am a 2019 graduate of Waldorf University with a Master’s in Organizational Leadership. This school has exceeded my expectations on many fronts. The instructors are well versed in their chosen fields and provide students with a well-rounded breath of knowledge. I have attended four other universities throughout my educational journey and Waldorf ranks at the top. My sincere thanks to Waldorf and their faculty for their top notch service.
