Walden University

Walden University is a private online university headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Walden is highly popular for their nursing programs as well as their BS in Information Technology, but they also offer a wide range of other degrees at both the undergraduate level as well as in their masters and doctoral programs.

Walden University has a highly generous transfer credit policy, allowing students to transfer in up to 135 quarter credits (out of 180) quarter credits towards a bachelor's degree. ACE-reviewed credit sources such as AP/CLEP/DSST exams and self-paced online courses (such as those offered by InstantCert) are readily accepted at Walden University and can often be used to fulfill major requirements towards your degree.

What is the Process for Transferring our InstantCREDIT Courses to Walden?

As with all other ACE-reviewed courses, the first step is to create an account on the ACE Credit website. Then, as you complete each course with InstantCert, you request to have that course added to your ACE transcript. When you have completed all of the courses you plan to take, you then request that your ACE transcript be sent to Walden University.
