ASC Courses and Workshops: Semester-Based Courses

Semester-Based Courses

The Center for Academic Excellence offers several non-degree 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 academic 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 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.

If you are not sure what WCSS course might be best for you, you can take either our self-assessment quiz (best for students who understand their own writing issues) or our diagnostic quiz (best for students who would like assistance in identifying their writing issues).

  • Self-assessment quiz
    • NOTE: This quiz is not validated. This quiz also relies on you knowing your own writing strengths and weaknesses.
  • Diagnostic quiz
    • NOTE: This quiz is not validated. We cannot guarantee that the identified topics are points of weakness, or that a course will result in improvement. This quiz is simply a tool for you in identifying potential areas of writing focus and your options for support.
