Walden's Transfer of Credit Process—As Easy as 1-2-3
Obtain an official transcript from your previous institution(s). We can help you with this—and 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 preliminary transfer credit evaluation within three business days, including a summary of the courses that have been accepted for transfer up to the maximum credits.*
Transfer Credits to Your Undergraduate or Graduate Program
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.
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.
Additional Admissions Information
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.

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.
