2013-2014 Walden University Student Handbook (DEC. 2013) [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

A Message for Students

Welcome to the 2013–2014 Walden University Site


Catalog, Student Handbook, and University Guidebooks

The Walden University Student Handbook and Catalog are updated quarterly—in September, December, March, and June. The most recent version of the catalog is the default publication, but you can access the current handbook or other catalogs from the current academic year by opening the drop-down menu in the upper-right corner of this page, making a selection, and then clicking “Go.” Older catalogs are available by selecting the “Archived Catalogs” link in the left navigation pane.

Students who are enrolled during the 2013–2014 academic year are subject to the degree requirements described in the Walden University Catalog for the academic year in which they were admitted.

Additionally, students are subject to the policies and procedures described in the most current Walden University Student Handbook, regardless of the academic year in which they were admitted. The university reserves the right to change any provision, offering, requirement, or fee at any time within the student’s enrollment period.

Students are encouraged to provide feedback about the catalog and handbook or any suggestions for improvement by sending their comments to

The faculty and staff of Walden are here to help students succeed in their academic pursuits.
