Since Walden University is an online school, their students vary. Many of us are older than your average college student, with families and full time jobs. We enrolled in an online college because it better suits our schedules to work in our own time, since getting to classes can be difficult.

Because Walden University is an on-line school, I don't think that one can classify any student as a typical Walden student. I find that most of the students in my level of doctoral degree programs are middle age and older adult learners. The flexibility of an on-line program is especially helpful for students who are not young adults, but middle-age adults and older, who most often already have established families and careers, which they can not leave, just to attend an institution of higher learning that offers a degree program that meets their career aspirations.

To become a Walden Student you need to be at least 24 years old. I am sure that the other students are similar to me; I am a full time mother, wife, house management, working a full time job, and attending a psychology program. At the end of my day, I am normally not going to bed until 3-330 am to get up by 8 to start another multitasking day after a few cups of coffee. Only those who are serious in changing there careers or adding to it should attend, those who are not serious should not waste the colleges time.
