Walden Templates: General Templates

Course Paper

This Word template provides a starting point for course papers at Walden. Some schools have their own requirements that might differ slightly, so always check for each class if there are different formatting requirements. Jump to the bottom of this webpage to view video tutorials on how to use the course paper templates. Starting April 6, 2016, Walden papers no longer require running headers, and the course templates have been updated to reflect this change.

Undergraduate Courses

Several Walden undergraduate instructors have put together model papers for students in their courses, with advice on formatting and organizing material in written assignments. Below, you will find two examples used in Walden undergraduate courses. Keep in mind that your instructor may have specific preferences, so always use your instructor’s guidelines first.
