Walden University provides all students, faculty, and staff with a dedicated e-mail address for use in university-related communications. Users are required to check their e-mail regularly to ensure that they receive all communications from Walden.
Students, faculty, and staff are required to use their Walden e-mail addresses when conducting university business.
E-mail communications are subject to all applicable university policies. All e-mail sent by students to Walden must comply with Walden policies on proper e-mail communications as indicated in the Acceptable Use Policy section.
The use of personal (i.e., non-Walden) e-mail addresses for any correspondence between Walden University and students is not authorized. Walden University faculty and staff should use only Walden e-mail accounts when communicating electronically with Walden students.
It is highly recommended that students contact Walden using their Walden e-mail accounts only to assure proper attention is given to their requests.
In the event a student does use his/her personal e-mail, Walden faculty and staff can respond to the personal e-mail, but should state in the e-mail that it is recommended students use their Walden e-mail accounts and that the response is also being sent to the student’s Walden e-mail account.
