The Center for Academic Excellence offers several courses designed to improve Walden University students’ knowledge and skills in reading, writing, statistics, communications, and critical thinking, and to help students successfully complete their academic program.
Faculty or Student Success Advising staff also may recommend these courses to help students who need extra support to successfully complete their studies.
Credit is granted for successful completion of each credit-bearing student success course but does not apply toward degree program requirements.
Most courses are available in both quarter-based and semester-based programs. Course length varies depending on the program and specific course.
