Choose a college
This is the first in a three-part series on how to do your research in selecting an online college. Part 2 will list some of the questions you should ask, and part 3 will explain what your research will show you about WGU as an online option. Parts 2 and 3 will be posted later this week.
For many working adults, finishing a bachelor’s or master’s degree can mean new opportunities—a better job, greater earning potential, or even a new career. And increasingly, adults who must balance work and family responsibilities are choosing online options because they need the flexibility that bricks-and-mortar universities seldom provide. If you are thinking of going back to college, you know that it will take hard work and a significant financial commitment. So it is very important to be sure that when you graduate, the degree you have earned will be respected—that it will count—by employers and other academic institutions.
This week, the WGU blog will explore the steps you should take in determining whether a specific online university is right for you. At WGU, our mission is increasing Americans’ access to college degrees—in the programs that fit what you are looking for. WGU isn’t the right choice for everyone. We’ll end this series of posts summing up what your research will find about WGU to help you decide if our online degree programs.
