DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR LIES! They say you can take as many classes as you want in the term, unless of course you move faster than they would like you too. I am currently being forced to waste three months of my term because I finished all my courses but two, and they will not allow me to finish. Their excuse? I am required to do my internship during a six month period. The reality? The rule is not written anywhere from the handbook to the syllabus, or any other materials provided to me. There is a minimum amount of hours but not time length - the just want me to have to pay for another semester. Don't bother coming! Oh, and the courses have readings and assignments that are not aligned so I spent more time Googling than anything else. This "university" is complete bs.

I've completed my undergraduate and am now working on my Master's through WGU. Both times I performed extensive research on online university platforms and WGU is by far the least expensive and the most flexible. It is critical in an online program such as this to be self-motivated and your efforts are supported by the care and dedication of the WGU mentors. I very much appreciate the competency model because with my extensive work experience I already knew some of the material, so with a quick review of the coursework I was able to sit for a few finals right away. Also, as a full-time employee living in a rural area, I'm able to study when it works for me. I do want to confirm that the programs have academic rigor - just because they are online doesn't mean they are less difficult. I definitely earned my degree. For anyone looking for an online education experience with a quality institution, I highly recommend WGU.

My name is Brittney but for some reason WGU can't get that right. On documents from the school I've been everything from Britny to Christopher. Christopher? Really? They don't care about their students. Just the $$$

Nobody had any idea what they are doing. When you call for help with something, all they do is shuffle you between departments endlessly. I've been on the phone for over an hour just trying to get 2 documents. I'm still being bounced between departments and I still don't have the documents. This is ridiculous.

Not sure why there are some bad review on here. This is a self-driven, self-paced, computer-based university that DOES care about you graduating. I am currently in the MSN-Ed program and it is what you put into it. If you go into it thinking it's a traditional college or that you will be coddled, forget it. It's all on you. After all, you're likely a working adult and likely also raising a family and have a mortgage, WHILE going to college. You cannot beat the tuition price. You cannot beat the resources. In fact, I graduated from a brick and mortar university and have more interest and resources now than I ever did during undergrad. There is a level of professionalism that is expected, however, when you speak to the mentors and your colleagues. This is not playtime. This is furthering your degree and getting out as quick and cheaply as possible, and I feel WGU is so much better than sitting through boring lectures and being forced to listen to topics you already know. At WGU, you can skip material you already know and go straight to the test!

Signed up for business classes. Made it as far as the sign in portal then I was assigned an advisor. I already have a BS in Education and wanted to expand my education to another field. I needed information about the course so I may use my GI bill for tuition assistance. Two weeks and no communication from my advisor. I have sent multiple emails requesting the information and still nothing. I won't to beg WGU to take classes. Moving on to another establishment.

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.

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.
