Communicating With Instructors

Return to: Faculty Services 

  • Students are responsible for keeping their contact information accurate and current. Students may update their contact information by changing it on their myWalden university portal or by e-mailing changes to infochanges@waldenu.edu.
  • The primary form of official communication with Walden faculty members is within Walden course shells and via Walden e-mail. Students are required to use their Walden e-mail addresses and to contact faculty members via the faculty member’s Walden e-mail account. Students should also ensure spam filters are set to receive mail from the university. The convention for Walden e-mail addresses is firstname.lastname@waldenu.edu.
  • Once enrolled, students should check their Walden e-mail frequently, so that they can begin receiving important information from instructors and staff.
  • Instructors provide contact information in the electronic learning classroom.
  • Drafts and final products must be submitted electronically within the classroom (or Research Shell for KAM and research).
  • All coursework communication with faculty—including draft and final course papers, submissions to faculty for review, KAM demonstrations, and thesis, dissertation, and doctoral study drafts and manuscripts—must be conducted in the learning platform to maintain a record of the academic experience. Students should submit all work within the course and faculty members will return grades and graded coursework within the course. For inquiries about coursework and research guidance, students are encouraged to use the Q&A sections of the classroom discussion board (when appropriate) so that their classmates may benefit from the answers.
