Walden University Student Catalog

Welcome to the Spring 2023-2024 Student Catalog


Dear Students,

We are so glad that you selected Walden as your learning partner and that you are part of our community. Our single focus is on helping you be successful—as a student, graduate, and contributing member of your profession and community. From our founding in 1970, Walden has been committed to providing the best education for working professionals like you.

As you look through this catalog, I hope you don’t think of it as only a list of courses, but as a resource for your educational journey. It is important for you to know that the program requirements in your Program of Study and published in the catalog at your time of admission are the ones you need to follow. Our student handbook contains our policies and procedures on academic progress, support services, student expectations and responsibilities, and other topics. Be sure to check out the “What’s New in the Catalog?” section for significant changes to our programs and the "What's New in the Handbook?" section for updates to policies.

Throughout your journey toward graduation, please remember that you are never alone. The faculty and student support teams here at Walden have you at the center of everything they do. They are committed to your success. Reach out to them when you have questions or need guidance or advice on advancing your goals. We’ve seen what our alumni have accomplished, and we want the same for you.

We value your time with us and the trust you put in Walden to challenge your mind, unlock your potential, and make it possible for you to achieve your goals. We all look forward to your success.

Personally, I look forward to conferring your degree and seeing how you use it to improve your career and your community.
