    Similarly, Walden offers free courses while their programs are awaiting accreditation.

    If the program doesn't get accredited, you're out nothing. If it does, you're already enrolled and have some of the coursework done, so you're motivated to keep paying and finish the program.

    Good. Walden needs anything the school can do, to keep students motivated. Average completion rates within 150% of expected time are 32% for undergrad and 33% for grad. Source:
