General Admission Requirements

  • Applicable test scores
  • Completed online application

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees vary by degree program because Walden programs are tailored to the specific needs of professionals in each field.

While we offer several scholarships and tuition assistance opportunities, we understand that you may need additional funding to earn your degree. We can provide you with some of the alternative financial assistance opportunities available to our students residing outside of the United States.

There are many sources that can help you pay for your tuition while you are enrolled in a degree program or assist you with loan repayment after graduation.

*Only one scholarship award can be applied to a student's tuition. This scholarship can be combined with one of the following: a limited time savings reduction, a partnership discount, or a standard tuition reduction.

General Considerations for International Students

  • English is the language of instruction. Depending on the language in which you earned your previous degree(s), you may need to submit test scores showing your level of English proficiency.
  • Walden University is not authorized to grant student visas for study in the United States.
  • To be admitted, you need a bachelor's or master's degree from an appropriately accredited non-U.S. institution or a U.S. school 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. You may have your transcript(s) evaluated free of charge by Walden. This evaluation will only be valid for application to Walden.
  • Applicants requesting transfer of credit must have their transcript(s) from outside the United States certified for equivalency to U.S. degrees or coursework. Walden offers this service for free.
  • International applications are due at least eight weeks before the U.S. application deadline, so please plan accordingly.
  • You will need regular access to a computer with an Internet connection (Broadband is recommended as students with dial-up may experience degraded performance).

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.
