A Message for Students

Welcome to Walden University





Dear Student,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to a new academic year at Walden University. At Walden, we continually look for ways to improve your learning experience, and our dedicated faculty and staff are here to support you at every step of your learning journey. It is our hope that you, in turn, will apply what you learn at Walden to make a positive impact in your community, profession, and society.

Our Walden catalog should be your resource for information on programs and curriculum. Please note that you are subject to the degree requirements for the catalog published during the year of your admission to Walden. Our catalog offers a “What’s New?” page to keep you updated on new programs and courses or significant changes in existing programs and courses.

I also encourage you to review the Student Handbook for our most current policies and procedures. The “What’s New?” page of the handbook highlights the most recent changes for your convenience. We encourage your feedback about the catalog and handbook by sending your comments to catalog@mail.waldenu.edu.

As you begin your courses, be sure to take advantage of our wide range of services designed to support your student success. Our academic advisors, student support team, library staff, and academic skills center team are available to offer advice and assistance. Your myWalden portal provides a detailed description of other services and information that will benefit you throughout your time with us.

On behalf of Walden’s entire academic and support services team, thank you for choosing Walden to continue your education. We look forward to assisting you in any way we can.

Provost and Chief Academic Officer
