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 .

Assessments are at the heart of your WGU program. Proving what you know is how you demonstrate your mastery of the course competencies, pass courses, move through your program, and earn your degree.

At WGU, we will be joining the nation in celebrating Autism Awareness Month 2015 throughout April. Beginning Wednesday, April 15, with an introductory panel on what we know about autism now, we will present a varied and engaging series of interdisciplinary online discussions about autism.

Can students at an online, self-paced, nontraditional university be engaged by their school and challenged by their studies? Can they feel connected to faculty and emotionally attached to their alma mater? Will their degrees reflect hard work that’s respected by employers, earning them great jobs and helping them live great lives?
