Academic advisors work as a team to help ensure an inspiring and enriching experience for every student, every day. Advisors help ensure that new students are able to successfully acclimate to the Walden University environment and that continuing students are consistently engaged as active scholar-practitioners.
Advisors collaborate with academic leadership, student support teams, and operational groups within the university to manage student expectations, facilitate student issues, and help ensure that students are successfully completing their programs.
Additionally, they provide developmental advising to assist students with academic planning, clarification of academic and university policies, and monitoring of each student’s degree progress. Academic advisors work closely with faculty members to support the satisfactory progress of students and to assist in resolving academic issues for students and faculty members.
Academic Advising can be reached by dialing 1-800-WALDENU (1-800-925-3368). Advisors are available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central time.
