Student Handbook:
About the Handbook

The Walden University Student Handbook is the primary resource for academic policies and procedures, academic and student resources, and financial services policies for Walden students. The handbook is available only on this website.

Students who are admitted for, and enrolled during, the 2023–2024 academic year are subject to the policies and procedures described in this Walden University Student Handbook. The university reserves the right to change any provision, offering, requirement, or fee at any time within the student’s enrollment period. Students can keep up to date on new or revised policies and procedures by accessing the “What’s New?” page.

Neither the provisions of this Walden University Student Handbook nor the acceptance of students to the university through the admission, enrollment, and registration processes constitutes a contract or an offer of a contract. The university further reserves the right to require a student to withdraw from the university for cause at any time.

Support Services

We understand that sometimes you would like to speak to a faculty or staff member face to face; however, Walden’s academic offices are primarily for staff, faculty, and leadership to coordinate the day-to-day operations of the university and are not designed to accommodate student visits.

If you would like to meet your faculty or a staff member in person, Walden does offer local events where you can meet university representatives who are available to answer your questions. Please visit our News and Events page for more details.

Should a more pressing concern arise, please follow prescribed procedures as detailed within this handbook or your online classroom. Our Student Success Advising Team is also available to assist you Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central time at 1-800-WALDENU (1-800-925-3368).
