At WGU, each student is assigned a personal faculty member to work with them as a mentor throughout their time at WGU. Additionally, each course has its own course mentors, subject-matter experts who are available to help students get through course material. Advice from your mentors is invaluable as you make your way through your online degree program.

Have you noticed the new look of WGU.edu this morning? The new design integrates a lot of new features, including mobile responsiveness and a cleaner look. We'd love to hear what you think!

It would be great if some of the courses had audio books. This would help those visually impaired or just tired eyes.

Like many things in life -- WGU is what you make of it. If you are self-motivated and driven to success, WGU can give you the tools you need to transform your life. For me, as an Information Technology leader, I had the skills, technical certifications, and experience -- but lacked the 'credibility' that a degree conveys. I enrolled (and completed) my undergraduate degree there, in record time, as a result of their 'competency'-based approach. I then re-enrolled and completed my Master's degree. Looking back, I was able to cram 6 years of school into ~ 4, on my own schedule, while otherwise working and balancing a family, at an incredible price. In return, WGU absolutely delivered the credibility I needed to propel my career and improve my income. What other institutions provide that flexibility, opportunity, and value? None, because there aren't any. As an institution of higher learning, WGU is absolutely fantastic -- it is everything higher education should be. Best & Respectfully-- Tom

Absolutely terrible. I was told that at least one higher level networking class was needed. I sent them my transcripts and they said that my Cisco class I took was "met". After that, I get a call stating that I didn't get in, lol. Why did they tell me a minimum requirement would be a higher level networking class, the transcript request people said that my Cisco class met the requirements, and after that tell me that I didn't get in?

Graduated MS. Information Security and Assurance. Great program. Security certifications that are part of the program are definitely a plus. The ongoing support from mentors and faculty members is definitely a part of the students' success. Good affordable education.

I love WGU! I have been in the MAT Elementary Education program in Washington State for 1 1/2 years, and it has been a wonderful experience. This is personalized learning at its best. There are many opportunities to work with both student and course mentors. It is a great school, and it is the ideal choice for motivated learners. It is also by far the most affordable education option particularly for graduate school education.

I have been a student with WGU for the last 3 years and have enjoyed every aspect of it. My student mentors have been great people to work with and have helped me through everything. All of the student mentors I have worked with have been very knowledgeable and have been quick to respond to my questions. I love that WGU is a not-for-profit organization, unlike most other institutions. This means that their primary focus is your eduction, not your money.

Completed my application for RN to BSN 3 weeks ago. My "enrollment counselor" left me a voicemail and that is all I have heard from her. I sent in transcripts and have left voicemails and emails to no avail. I called today to see if there is someone else that could help me. I spoke with a very rude woman with a heavy accent that said she will now be my enrollment counselor. No way, I'm going to pay a little more to go to GCU. They are at least friendly and seem like they want me to attend their school.

I have been a student of WGU for 2.5 years in the Teaching portion, and about to graduate next month. Looking back through the whole time, I would recommend this college for any person who feels that online college is the best option for them. It was not a walk in the park, and there were about three classes that I wasn't sure if I could make it through. It is possible to do the classes if you make sure you spend time each week (15 hours a week minimum) on your classes. You do one class at a time, which really makes WGU a great option for people who are busy. I have two jobs which take a lot of my time throughout the week, and if I had to do classes like any other college and do all classes at the same time, I would not have made it. I'm about to be hired as a teacher at the school that I work at, and WGU was a great way of working on certification. The staff is EXTREMELY helpful and will help you through every step of the way. Overall, I do not regret going to WGU and had a great experience with them. I am looking at doing my Masters through WGU as well in the future.

STOP!!!! DO NOT GO HERE!!! I signe up for WGU to take part of their elementary education program. I didn't take any classes, didn't take any test, did do ANYTHING. my situation changed after being technically enrolled for 5 day. 5 DAYS!!! They didn't refund me all my money and basically took $1500 from me!! FOR THREE STUPID DAYS! I've tried to take to everyone possible but still i get the same answer that its prorated by how many days i was enrolled and even though i was only technically enrolled for 5 days they start enrollment period at the beginning of the month when made it look like i was enrolled for 3 and half week. BULLSHIT!! So if this isn't proof that all they want is money, money, money I dont know what is. SO DO NOT DO IT!! Youll thank me later, trust me.
