5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Online is no longer unique, though a reputable, seriously academic business model is, and Walden U. has a good marriage between the two. Judgment day comes when we look at where students landed their planes. ;->)

5 College Junior

Online Courses: As I wrote previously, my undergraduate was Ivy League; MBA 2nd tier; PhD at Walden U., all online is equivalent to Ivy League. Relationships are what a student develops, attitude and interest are keys to success.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Really, the student is the core of responsibility and advocacy.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Eclectic, international, diverse, and dedicated to positive social change.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Well experienced in online education.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Online, no labs, no printing, network reliability is very good, speed is available (student needs to check their connectivity and peripherals), wireless access just starting with iPhone, personal computer a must, printer nice to have, but not so necessary.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: No athletic centers, all online; student center evolving, looks good so far; library BEST; campus activities evolving, depends on student interest.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Post-grad services are evolving and growing, and look very good at this point (ABD).

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Again, if students pay attention, read, and ask questions, financial aid is very straightforward and plenty of help available to tap.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Most professors are just that, not facilitators, and not instructors. Registration is quite easy. Workload is student committed.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Unique aspects of this online program are support systems within university, including all aspects of career planning, advancement, and research/tuition grant/funding. The workload is as demanding as the Ivy League undergraduate program I attended, how that is managed is up to the student, though excellent resources are available for students to help themselves.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Everything was great except I think the financial aid dept should be a little more understanding and have more resources available.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office did great in notifying me that I would be reaching my aggregate limit a few months ago. However, what they lack was access to resources to help me pay for my final class so that I can get one of the most expensive pieces of papers ever in the mail. I feel like they were like "oh well". I do not know what to expect and I feel like I was just left out there to fend for myself. Especially considering I only need assistance to pay for one class. Sure I was told apply for scholarships and apply for an aggregate loan. But...that's all you have to tell me? So now...I have finished my program and cannot get my diploma or transcripts until I pay $330.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The only thing I needed was my computer. I did not have to print or physically turn anything in. There were a couple of changes to the forum that made things a little rocky for a week or two but otherwise, everything was pretty simple and accommodating.

4 College Senior

Student Body: I did not have much interaction with the students because I was online. I did kind of miss having actual dialogue with some of the other students but interacting with them in the classroom discussions areas were interesting.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The class instructors are very understanding. They work with time zones and understand when there are technical issues as I have had several issues with my old computer but did not have the money to purchase a new one. All it took was a simple email to explain my circumstances and not one teacher expressed any anger or frustration. They were very understanding and accommodating.

2 College Senior

Career Services: The quality of post-grad services leaves a lot to be desired. I am actually done with my program but do not have enough financial aid to pay for my very last class. I received a couple of notices and emails during my last class stating I would be suspended from getting any more financial aid because of my outstanding balance. I could not believe they did not realize I was actually done with the program and would no longer be needing anymore financial aid. No one has called to check in with me during my last class to see if I had any questions or concerns or to even notify me about my options to graduate or anything.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: When I had concerns, they were addressed and most times, "fixed" in some form or manner. Some of the professors are great but, like most establishments, there are those who may not be right for instructing.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I changed my major 3 times and each time, the academic and enrollment advisors worked with me to make sure I was enrolled into the proper program and made the requested changes immediately.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Walden is very expensive, but worth every penny. Issues I had were immediately resolved. However, I ran out of financial aid for my last class and I am not sure what I was expecting but I did not receive many resources or help from Walden to help me pay for my final graduate course so now they are holding onto my degree and my transcripts. I feel like the financial aid department should have more options available to those who struggle. The academic advisors and enrollment counselors were very helpful but the financial department should have more empathy for people in my situation who do not make much money and will probably never be able to pay them the $3300 that I owe them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Nothing but good so far, my advisor is friendly and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Love online classes, allows to me maintain my family of three kids, and full time work schedule. I complete things on my own time.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The price increased just two quarters before I startead. I had hardship finding money to start. Will have to pay more out of pocket or obtain more debut. They were upfront with this and did allow time for me to prepare since I don't start for another quarter.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: They transfered all my credits from my BSN to start my MSN. Didn't have to re-take any classes.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: Will stay at my current place of employment, so won't be using much.
