Walden University was founded in 1970 by two teachers seeking a better way for adults to pursue advanced degrees without leaving the workforce.
That vision meant rethinking a brick-and-mortar classroom to allow broader access through distance education. Our proven track record in online higher education has grown our learning community to include more than 52,600 students and more than 96,000 alumni worldwide.
Walden University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, www.hlcommission.org. The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional accrediting associations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
