Time and Pacing

During chat, we are often working simultaneously with other students. Because of this, you might have to wait while we finish up another conversation or complete a task. Please be patient and know that we are eager to help as soon as we are able. If it is taking too long for us to get back to you and you don't want to wait, please email  

Code of Conduct

We request that students abide by Walden University’s Code of Conduct and reserve the right to end any conversation that becomes "disruptive, threatening, unethical, disrespectful, or abusive."
