The Walden Library does not have any information about when submitted dissertations will be available in the ProQuest dissertations database.
Only ProQuest has information about their workflow and expected completion times. Keep in mind that publishing is not a quick process.
As of February, 2018, the ProQuest FAQs indicate an 8-12 week processing time for all submitted and approved dissertations.
Also from their FAQ page:
"If you would like to inquire about the status of your submission after it has been approved and sent by the graduate school, you may contact our Author and School Relations group at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-521-0600 x77020. Please include your manuscript ID with your query; the ID was included in the confirmation email sent to you by the ETD Administrator."
- Find more specifics in your program's guidebook on the Student Research Administration page.
