WGU was perfect for me!!
WGU was perfect for me. I could check in with my mentor once a week, but be left to manage myself. I loved that I could work on what I wanted to work on when I wanted to, do the work I was ready to do on my time, and be able to move between courses as necessary. The course mentors were especially invaluable during my Masters' program and they were so supportive and helpful!
WGU was an excellent school
WGU was an excellent school! My program mentor, Gia Long, provided guidance, support, and encouragement throughout my journey. The librarians and course instructors were valuable resources during my academic mission for growth. Anytime I needed assistance from staff at WGU, someone was always available (day or night) to assist and meet my needs. My experience at WGU was remarkable and I highly recommend this school to others!!

This school helped me to complete my degree while juggling working full time and being a single mother. I wish the classes included more support and book work but overall I received what I needed and completed much faster than I would have in a traditional classroom. Thanks WGU!
Highly recommend WGU
I loved WGU! They made it super easy to graduate in my own timeframe. I was able to accelerate and get my master’s in 18 months instead of 2 years, and it didn’t feel rushed. I loved that my mentor called me every week to help me stay on track. I thought it would be hard to stay motivated on my own, but it really wasn’t (mostly thanks to the accountability of my mentor calling me). I would totally recommend WGU to anyone looking to get a degree in their offered programs.
What a wonderful learning experience…
What a wonderful learning experience right at home in my PJ's!! Strenuous academics that force you to dig in and learn. WGU takes learning seriously as do I and I am very happy I stayed the course to completion. I can truly state I have gained invaluable knowledge!!

Finished my masters in 4 months and two weeks. I accelerated through the program having the best course mentor and instructors. WGU got me, and they will work for you too. Just be willing to work hard and be in constant communication with your instructors.
A new type of U. Why go anywhere else?
I really enjoyed my experience with WGU. Every week I got a call from my mentor to check on me, and that really made me feel that the school really cared that I was following through with what I wanted for myself. Each of my professors helped me when I needed guidance with my assignments. All I had to do was ask. WGU makes sure that you have all the help you need in order to complete your degree. I don't believe I've seen or heard of a school that offers this level of support. Don't miss out!
Great support, flexibility and quality of education!
Excellent program and educational model.

Great experience for a full time…
Great experience for a full time working mother of 4. If I can do it, anyone can!
Fabulous experience. Great program mentor and course mentors.
Jason didn't think he needed a degree—until he found his career had gone as far as it would without one. He earned his bachelor's degree from WGU and found such immediate success, he enrolled in his master's program—less than 2 months later.
