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.

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

Response from the owner - 3 months ago
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.

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.

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.

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 $$$

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.

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.
