Since initially attending Walden, I've met so many great professionals and colleagues via online as well as face-to-face during residency. I've encountered a few financial obstacles but with Walden's financial aid department, I've been able to get over these hurdles. Additionally, I enjoy the emails and newsletters for social change and community involvement. Thus, Walden is dedicated to social change and since attending, so am I! I am WALDEN UNIVERSITY!

Value of Education – The education I'm getting is not worth the money I pay. Financial aid support, tuition costs and expenses were not clearly outlined prior to my enrollment. I've exceeded my financial aid allowance and the expense for my degree is a hardship. I've learned tremendously from my research and coursework. However, the student support from Academic Advising does not fully meet student needs. In addition, Walden's change in academic programs has delayed my program completion. That's not acceptable! Finally, the requirement for groupwork in courses is poorly structured, impeding the progress of serious students.
