New Students: Know Your Program


Many of the words or phrases you'll hear in class, read in your emails, or discuss with Student Success Advising will involve different terms that are often new to students. Knowing what those terms are will help you be successful from the start of your program. For more information about terms you may hear as part of your program at Walden, please visit the Advising Terminology section of this website.


The Student Handbook outlines the university-wide policies that students follow, but there are also program-specific policies that students should follow. Your Student Success Advisor can assist you in understanding the policies that apply to you as a Walden student, in addition to any policies that apply specifically for your program.


For more information about the most common policies you’ll work with here at Walden, please visit the University Policies section of this website.
