3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses require a high level of self-determination and self-efficacy in order to keep up with the high volume of discussion posting, reading, and application workload assigned on a weekly bases and at an accelerated pace, than a traditional brick and mortar school. A major drawback of online courses is no face-to-face interaction and thus, relationships are much hard to develop and maintain. Establishing a student/mentor relationship is also absent from an online course environment, which makes acquiring recommendation letters virtually impossible.

Academic Experience: Walden university is an exceptional school because it focuses on the student and their outcome in the professional world. My classes are very interesting and i have gained and excessive amount of knowledge in my field of study. The assignments are due at 1:59am est. and I have enough time to study and get my work done promptly. If I have any trouble i can contact my instructors during work hours. They respond very promptly. The academic advisors contacted to make sure I am doing well in the courses.

Campus Resources: The residency is so important to me. I went for the first time in July of 2012 and I met people from all walks of life. The diversity were just great. People
met for the first time and we all just got along. The instructors were great. We all almost cried because we did want to leave each other. I am looking forward to going back.

Career Services: The quality of Walden is excellent. Whenever you need help with any services of the college you get an answer in a timely manner, the e-mails are always returned with a telephone number to call back and the name of the person to con act. The career center is always there to help you and the staff are very professional and friendly. They are there to help you with resumes being done professionally and to assist the student for job search.

Academic Flexibility: I chose Walden University because they encourage a mission for students become scholars of change in their community. The University enforces academic integrity to assure students are faithful to creating their own work. It is important to me to be able to make a difference. Honesty is one of the main ingredients that one should possess to being a an effective leader in the community.

Academic Experience: I am a forensic psychology major. The courses are exactly what I thought they would be. Courses are designed around your major even your electives so your not learning anything that would not be beneficial. Classes are hard but that's why taking the prerequisite are needed. Workload is very straightforward. The only way you will get behind is if you don't make an effort or complete and assignment even then you can still turn it in for partial credit. 10 points are deducted for each day after the due date your assignment is turned in. To me that's a lot because the majority of your overall grade is the assignments and discussions.

Academic Experience: The professors are really knowledgeable and have worked in the fields that they are teaching. Academic ad visors are always available to help with registration and courses if need it,if not you can register yourself. Student services offer plenty of different ways to get in touch with academic ad visors, tech support even financial aid. You can also do live chats. The only bad thing about Walden is tutoring is limited to just writing.

Career Services: That I think will be worked on to ensure there is a post-grad service.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: It gives the advantage of studying and receiving a profession while remaining at work and with little disruption of the family life.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network is reliable, and if per chance there is a problem , help is available to solve it.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: The registration process was very fast and easy; I wanted to start school and Walden University made it happen. The online experience is very different from the traditional classroom/campus style college. There is more flexibility with online, and it is more convenient than going to class at a certain time everyday. However teaching yourself is more difficult and the classroom interaction is a lot different. All in all, you must be a very disciplined student to successively learn and graduate from online school.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education is worth the money, however, I wish there were more services and video lectures to ensure that we are learning everything we need to succeed and really getting our monies worth. It can be very hard to teach yourself, so for the money that I spend for my education, I would like a little bit more guidance.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Can take classes when you choose, there's no specific order

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have had my financial aid information selected for review both times I have submitted my FAFSA to Walden, afraid to submit this year, as their IRS link will not retrieve my tax information, when you enter it yourself off of your own tax documents, I have had to send the tax return and all documents that I filed with my taxes to the school, it is so time consuming, if a student is selected once and information is found to be correct, they should not have to go through that review process each year.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is a good mixture of cultures and backgrounds, but everyone I've had the pleasure of having class with has been respectful and professional. It is one of the aspects of the school I enjoy the most, and hope I continue to have the good luck of who my classmates are.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They have a good online library and student portal.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The structure they have for early completion of Masters program is the reason I'm staying with the school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There aren't any major hangups with the computer system, which is good because it's an online school. However, there isn't anything outstanding about it either. I had similar technological resources available at a brick and mortar university - I would think a completely onlines university should be providing additional or better services.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I enjoy making good grades here. The professors are awesome.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I wish there was more interaction with professors. I do wish professors had to actually "teach" us. Although we are online it would be nice if the professors would/could lecture by video or something. Classes are condensed into week time frames so work is already doubled, when you are basically teaching yourself by reading everything you have to know, it makes things a bit difficult. That is the only downfall.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Since I started this school, their technology fee has been raised by $10 every quarter that I take a class, it started at $75, now up to $110 the first time it changed it jumped by $20.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The program provides me with infomation geared directly toward my major. The workload is understandable for my major and it is broken down for understanding.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Throughout the courses the professors are very helpful and knoweldgeable. The curriculum is interesting and engaging. Class registration for the program I am in is automatic, as long as I do not owe I do not have anything to worry about. I only registered for my residency and I could call for help. The workload is expected for the level of degree.
