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.
Thanks to recent congressional changes to the Post-9/11 GI Bill, Mark is one of the many veterans whose decision to attend an online university now carries the added benefit of eligibility for the VA housing stipend. This applies to students at WGU and its state subsidiaries.
WGU may be the perfect fit for adult learners, but even our students can be kids at heart. Take Brian Butt, a student from Riverton, Utah, earning his IT degree online at WGU. He lives playing video games and making things explode.
