Choose a college
The following short article is written to provide general advice about online education and degrees, not just information specific to WGU. If you have specific questions about WGU, feel free to inquire online or speak with an enrollment counselor (1-866-225-5948).
Are you self-motivated and serious about learning? Online degree programs may offer so much more than a traditional college campus. For instance, online university programs permit you to meet, talk and collaborate with students from all over the country from the comfort of your home. Students can post questions and share information with classmates through forum discussions at any time of day or night.
You’ll save the time and money of a daily commute, and the expense of living on campus. This makes an online college education especially suitable for adults with families, who are seeking a quality education but not the “college lifestyle.”
Online college professors, mentors and advisors keep flexible hours; most can meet online, by phone or through teleconferencing whenever you need them.
When you take university courses online, you’ll experience multiple modes of learning. Your instructors provide you with resources and to let you learn at your own pace. Everybody learns differently, and you can select the resources that play to your strengths.
If you have self-discipline and want to work in a self-paced program, consider taking university courses online.
