Walden University has transitioned from Google to Office 365 effective August 1st, 2017. 

For help and support with the Office 365 applications, please access the Student Support Website.


If you’re interested in sharing your materials with others you can use Google Drive. This removes the need to synthesize three or four incoming drafts into one master document before your final submission. 

Note that while Google Drive will initially save your material in a Google document, you can always export it later into a .docx file (Microsoft Word), the file type required by Walden. If you have questions about using this program, visit the Google Drive help site for support.
