Recently, Western Governors University was featured in the Los Angeles Times Personal Finance column by Kathy Kristof. The article focuses on the non-profit approach WGU takes to making higher education accessible, flexible, and affordable for students all over the country. WGU lets students like Orleatha Smith (featured in the article) have a full-time job, take care of family responsibilities, and go to school at the same time. The online university tailors education to the individual and allows students to work at an accelerated pace.
WGU is a competency-based, non-profit online university that offers over 50 accredited bachelor's and master's degree programs in business, teacher education, information technology, and health professions, including nursing.
