I learned about WGU thru a friend. Unfortunately WGU is not a school who actually cares about advancing your education. I took their online assessment and was later told I did not pass just one section and that's why they would not accept me. So I took the test again 3 weeks later and made sure I aced it. I was told I passed the test but that I didn't have enough credits from my prior college and they would prefer I have more credits. That makes no sense. I have a 3.7 GPA and some college courses from high school and I have 1 year prior college experience. I was then directed to pay for classes thru some 3rd party they use called Straighterline. So much for WGUs reputation. I'm an ideal candidate for most schools, and yet they make me feel like a high school drop out

We don't respond to individual admissions decisions for privacy reasons, but it's important to remember that WGU's mission and commitment is to helping students graduate. Our admissions decisions are based on a number of factors that our data have shown us predict a student's likelihood to be successful under our unique online, independently driven model.

They are not worth the energy nor time. They sent me on a wild goose chase to ultimately not be accepted. I requested why, they gave me a very vague anwser. I never received my compass test score and they talked so much about why statistically they do not accept students without college experience to the point where I'm 100% sure that that is illegal due to discrimination and goes against the fact that on their website it clearly States some college experience or work experience. I've been working in the field of Business since 2012. So I'm sure they already had their minds made up about me since I have never been to college. I thought this would be the best school for me since the experience with Nashville states online schooling wasn't ideal for me. I now see that I am Wrong about WGU. I do not which to continue wasting my time to get an honest answer on why they do not want me there. Beware of this school. I will do my research on another school to further my education.

I have done both my undergrad and graduate degree from WGU. I am pleased with my experience at the university. There may be minor concerns about the way things are done, but overall the university represents unprecedented value. WGU is not for everyone, and there is very little interaction between fellow students. Mentors are available for each subject, and are usually helpful. The university is fully accredited as far as I know and is surely something that you should checkout before enrolling in one of the other universities.

I have had an amazing experience with my BSN program. I just completed my first term with the support of an amazing mentor michelle gower. She calls me every week to make sure i am staying on track. This is a computer based program so for those of us working it is convenient but also easy to not stay disciplined and completinf thw work..my mentor makes me accountable...love this program and school and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to move forward and upward in their career..

MY experience with WGU was very rewarding and successful. It truly is competency based, and the student is able to accelerate according to the capacity of the student. Very pleased, the student mentors and course mentors are readily available to help. Great University, Great team.

As an alumni, I can tell you that you will get out of the program what you put into your program. If this type of self guided model works for you as a student, you will do well. WGU regionally accredited and affordable. They are like an all you can learn academic buffet. You pay a flat rate per term and take as many classes as you can handle. The disconnection from peers is a real issue for WGU that as of date they have not been able to correct. Most of what they have done to try to fix this issue has not been very appropriate or suited for working professionals that make up the core of the student population. While skill building is the major goal of higher learning being able to gain value based personal networks is also very critical to one's long term professional success. It's sad to know that there are things that could be done that WGU is over looking. We need an Alumni Association not Alumni Services. The Alumni Services provide little to no meaningful value to the WGU Alumni population. Alumni services over look Alumni, like myself, who are seeking ways to give back to the university through involvement and donations.

I am a student in Washington state enrolled at WGU. I love the competency based learning model and the mentor program is well done. I am looking forward to completing the degree that I was not able to do the first time. Thanks WGU!

I just competed my first term. I completed 18 CU but could have easily completed more. I moved in the middle of my term so I didnt do any work for about 2 months. I will be competing my degree ahead of schedule. My mentor is awesome and if I have any questions a course mentor for the class emails me back very quickly.
