Congratulations on deciding to begin your experience with Walden! To kick off your journey, be sure to join us for your New Student Orientation (NSO) webinar. This interactive presentation is designed to welcome you to the Walden family, teach you about the online learning environment, and inspire you in your studies with us.

In addition to offering you hands-on experience with the basics of learning online, the orientation allows you to:

  • Network with other new students throughout the event in a chat room.
  • Connect with your advisors, faculty, staff, alumni and university leadership.
  • Get answers to all of your questions via the faculty and alumni panels.

Throughout the two-hour event, our Student Support Team will serve as your personal guide, answering any questions you may have during the presentation and assisting with any administrative questions.
