We know that your prior learning and experience—in the classroom and on the job—contribute to the energy and expertise you bring to your education. That’s why we offer a number of ways to transfer and apply credit toward your Walden program, which can save you time when earning your degree.

If you have completed college-level courses at another institution, you may be eligible to apply credits earned toward your studies at Walden. Learn more about how you can transfer college credit.
Walden has agreements with learning institutions to accept their courses as meeting our requirements for certain bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs. View the list of our partner agreements.
