4 College Student

Overall Experience: Over all I have had a good experience and would do it again for the flexibility and that I can stay in my state. It also applies to California standards which was hard to find.

4 College Student

Student Body: The student body is extremely diverse here and we all get along great.

3 College Student

Facilities: Really isn't anything I can discuss here. As for programs there are unique in their residencies to ensure you do have some face - to - face interaction and are completing your program.

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: If you're not careful about your own technology and reliability then you will have problems, but if you are then it works out.

3 College Student

Career Services: I think that this is average, you don't get the best response times and care from administrators. I've been lucky to get one or two people who will actually spend the time explaining things to me.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: This is you're own responsibility.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: There is not a campus available to me, but their online campus has provided me with what I've needed.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: There are options for financial aid but I'm at max aid and if anything is left over it doesn't cover all my expenses. Don't expect to have any money for living costs in this program, in fact I pay out of pocket for travel, books and other associated costs.

4 College Student

Academic Experience: The program is great for a clinical degree since no where in my area did schools offer this degree. I would have liked to move and go to a campus school but this turned out a great option so I could stay and take care of my elderly grandparents.

4 College Student

Academic Experience: Most of the professors are understanding of your real world lifestyle and responsibilities and try to plan accordingly.

3 College Student

Online Courses: This is a good school, although a few of the residencies I would prefer to be online rather than put all the money into travels for the same material I could get online.

Tuition & Financial Aid: My financial aid ran out. I maxed out the student loans, and got one Plus loan... No other opportunities for students once the government funding has been used up.

No scholarships, grants, or work-study offered through the school which limits students.

Even those who work hard and maintain 4.0 GPA have nowhere else to turn to. Scholarships are hard to get, and grants are impossible.

Overall Experience: There are some downfalls: no invitation to show at conferences, no opportunities for alternatives for financial aid once the funds max-out...

The professors are good, but the administrators seem to be more interested in "marginalized groups" than those who are Caucasian, thus causing this latter demographic to become "marginalized".

I do not appreciate a few of the professors who were clearly racist or culturally insensitive to the concerns of the Caucasian population in their classes. Especially the Cultural Diversity in Counseling class. We, the Caucasian population, were treated as though we were horrible racists even through the textbooks that were chosen.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I have not yet utilized the career services department.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: I found that I felt belittled by some of the administrators and also felt that I was not going to be appreciated based upon either my race, or my sex. I think that it is important to treat college students like students, but also like respectable people who deserve to be spoken to as professionals rather than as subordinates.

Academic Experience: I feel that there are benefits to the degree I am working toward. There are so many facets of opportunity once I've reached my goals.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Curriculum is good, and the school format is really nice. I can follow it well and have figured out the Blackboard classroom finally. I feel that there is opportunity for advancement and growth in my career through what I'm learning in school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I am disappointed there are not more options for work-study or scholarship for students in the PhD program. It seems that a student who has reached nearly the end should have encouragement and opportunity to complete what they started, like colleges do for undergrad students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I think instructors should respond to each main post each week in the discussion board to let us know what they have to improve on our knowledge, or at least so that the student is not sitting there with no replies at all.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I find that many times I am sitting in discussion boards with no replies to my main posts. This is discouraging. I like to find others who have no responses and write to them. I just wish others had that same sentiment.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, I'm satisfied with Walden. The only thing that challenges my participation is that I don't qualify for financial aid nor for loans. This means I have to pay out of pocket and it makes it almost impossible for me to attend.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: One has to be more attentive to the formatting of the homework assignment. The forums offer a great experience in learning from the other students.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Its hard to describe when you only have the online interaction to guide your judgement

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Nothing that stands out. Though I wish more credits could have been admitted from my previous school.

4 College Junior

Career Services: THe program I'm pursuing has the continuation option for a higher degree under the same field.
