WGU is a great university for the active-duty service member who wants to earn a
degree and benefit from the flexibility of online learning. Our competency-based
online degree programs allow you to benefit from your existing knowledge. Our mentors
and staff provide continuous support to help you make progress at your own pace.
And our policies are "military friendly."
At the same time, however, it’s important to understand when WGU is not the right choice. WGU’s programs are designed to serve the degree-seeking student, not someone who is just looking to complete a few courses. If you think you may want to complete a degree program at WGU—perhaps even one started somewhere else—we may be a great fit. However, if you are looking for just individual courses, you will be better served at another online or traditional university.
WGU normally serves full-time students. However, WGU offers a part-time per-competency unit option for service members who are using military tuition assistance. (This option is not available to regular WGU students or to veterans using benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill®.)
Note: Some programs are designed with integrated content and assessments that necessitate the student be enrolled full-time for at least one term. (Contact your Military Education Officer for details.)
