Choose a college
WGU seeks to admit individuals who have the capacity and determination to complete a rigorous WGU degree program...and graduate. The admission process is designed to help you and the university reach an informed decision about your likelihood of success.
“We know we have a lot of different kinds of learners, and we think (competency-based education) will be a way for some of those learners to be successful more efficiently than the traditional way.”
“The unique thing about education, and what makes it so hard to control the price, is that it's not just a service or a good. It's a process, and the learner takes an active role in creating its value. A college education may never be free, but for many people it will remain priceless.”
“The best preparation program in the country for future high school teachers, according to new US News and World Report rankings, happens at an online university you probably haven't heard of where students don't take any classes.”
WGU’s student body may be diverse, but all of our students lead busy lives and share many of the same challenges to earn their degrees. Most of our students work full-time while working on their degrees and balancing families and other life responsibilities. All of our students and graduates have a “story”, so take some time to get to know some of them by clicking on the profiles below.
