I’m Sage the Night Owl, and I approve this message.
This election season, make the wise choice. I’m Sage, and since 2011 I have served as WGU’s mascot. There are many reasons to support my candidacy. I’m wise, of course. I’m unblinking in my commitment to a brighter future for you and your family. For more than five years, I have proudly represented the hard-working, dedicated scholars who make up the WGU student body and alumni community, and if I win your support, I promise to represent ALL my constituents.
This election isn’t about Night Owls. It’s not about Morning Larks. It’s about all of us. #SageforPresident

#MondayMotivation "Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma." -- The Great Wizard of Oz

The material provided and the support is great at WGU. I recently finished a Bacherlor in B.A., and I am about to start their Master program. If you are about to start studying at this university, expect to read and master the information provided. If you have experience, you will be very familiarized with the courses. But if you experience is limited, study really hard, and set mile stones to get through your courses. I thank my mentor and support staff for their flexibility and adjustment to my crazy life and work schedule.

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.

Response from the owner - 3 weeks ago
The policy requiring a student to complete their practicum over a six-month period aligns us with the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) standards. ELCC standard 7.2 requires administrative candidates to participate in a “six-month, concentrated (9–12 hours per week) internship that includes field experiences within a school-based environment.” Consequently, we do not have flexibility to allow a student who accelerates to complete a practicum experience in fewer than six months. You should also note some states require the experience to cover a full school year. Students in those states have two practicum courses, allowing them to meet this requirement.

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 $$$

I am shocked by the WGU graduation rate, but I am happy to say that I graduated. I received my bachelors degree in Marketing Management last month. I will be starting the MBA program November 1st. I honestly can not blame WGU for the graduation rate. I think the WGU graduation rate should be hire than 50 percent. I'm curious if people are starting WGU and then transferring there credits to another school to graduate from another institution because this may be one of the logical explanations why WGU graduation rate is so low.

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.

Great University offering in-demand degrees. I've been a student here for several years and I'm near graduation. My time here has been well spent.
