For busy, working adults, a flexible, competency-based online university like WGU is often the best bet for earning a degree—even, sometimes, for people who work at a traditional university. Chris Dann of Port Orange, Florida, was in just that boat.
This week, we’ve been providing tips for researching online universities and making the decision that works best for your needs. Today, we’ll explain how WGU’s online degree programs work to help you determine if WGU is the right fit for you.
This is the second in a three-part series on how to do your research in selecting an online college. Part 1 dealt with how to start your search, and part 3 will explain what your research will show you about WGU as an online option. Part 3 will be posted later this week.
