Why WGU is a Smarter Way to Earn a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree

WGU is a smarter way to earn a degree because:

  • WGU is a nonprofit university.
    Nonprofit means many things, but to us, nonprofit stands for 1) an unparalleled investment in student success; 2) Low tuition, meaning less debt; 3) A focus on graduation, not tuition; And, 4) an emphasis on ensuring that WGU is the right fit for your goals and needs.
  • WGU is competency-based and measures learning, not time.
    At WGU, our focus is on making sure you have the skills and knowledge you need to be successful. By utilizing a competency-based approach to education, WGU enables you to leverage the “competencies” you already possess to potentially complete your program faster—and for less money, too.
  • WGU is respected and offers relevant degree programs.
    WGU offers a rigorous, relevant education that’s designed by experts from industry and academia which prepares you with the skills and knowledge you need to become a consummate professional in your field.
  • WGU is affordable.
    Tuition at WGU is among the most affordable in the country—typically half what you’d pay at a traditional campus-based university or another online school. Plus, WGU only charges tuition at a flat rate every six months (not per credit). You’ll only pay for the time you need to complete your degree requirements. The faster you progress, the more you save.
  • WGU is flexible.
    For schedules that demand flexibility, WGU is the smarter choice. Course material can be accessed at the time and place convenient for your schedule. You can progress at a pace that enables you to earn a college degree while managing your career, family, and life’s other challenges.
