As an adult learner, you bring a lifetime of experiences and knowledge to the classroom. That's why at Walden, we are committed to helping you earn credit for what you already know, whether it's from work, education, or a variety of other experiences.

Walden enrollment advisors are here to work with you and help you find ways to fund your education and make your dreams affordable.

  • Save time: By transferring credits, you can complete your degree program in as little as one year.
  • Save money: You can transfer up to 75% of your required undergraduate credits or up to 50% of your required graduate credits.

Walden’s 3-Step Transfer of Credit Process

  • Obtain an official collegiate transcript from your previous institution(s). We can help you with this—and we will even pay the transcript fee for you.
  • We will carefully review your previous coursework to maximize the amount of credits we can apply to your Walden program of study.
  • You will receive a transfer credit pre-evaluation within three business days, including a summary of the courses that have been accepted for transfer up to the maximum credits.

Undergraduate programs*

  • You must have earned credit in courses in which you earned a C (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher.
  • You may transfer up to 135 quarter credits. Students must earn at least 45 credits at Walden. With the exception of selected technology courses, there is no time restriction for undergraduate transfer coursework.

Graduate programs*

  • You must have earned that credit within 10 years of matriculation in courses posting a B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher. Credits to be evaluated for transfer from other educational institutions must be earned and recorded on an official transcript at a school that was accredited by a regional, professional/specialized, or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or the U.S. Department of Education at the time the course was completed or from an appropriately accredited institution outside the United States.

*Please note: There may be additional program-specific transfer of credit criteria. Students should check the Transfer Maximum by Program table in the Walden University Student Handbook.

  • Monthly Payment Plans

    Walden University partners with ECSI to provide students with an alternative to paying full tuition at the beginning of each term. Through ECSI’s monthly payment plan, you may spread the cost of your tuition over multiple months—interest free. The ECSI plan is not a loan, and there is an enrollment fee.
    Simplify your school expenses with:

    • Convenient monthly payments that allow you to pay tuition in manageable installments.

    • Multiple payment plan options, including some that can be combined with school loan programs (if available in your country of residence).

    • Interest-free payments, which may eliminate your need for loans.

Funding Your Education at Walden

    Three-fourths of Walden students receive some form of financial aid.**


    Knowledgeable advisors are available to help you create a tuition-assistance plan that works for you.


Many countries have their own accrediting bodies, and degree recognition differs from country to country. Prospective students who reside outside of the United States are advised to review accreditation requirements for their own country to confirm recognition of their Walden program of choice.
