Pay It Forward

B4 Women in Tech

WGU strives to eliminate barriers that stand between you and a quality education–which is why we've teamed up with the Reboot Representation Tech Coalition to launch B4 Women in Tech

This program helps put an accredited and affordable IT degree within reach of Black, Latina, and Native American women wanting to build or grow tech-focused careers.

As a grad, you can network with and provide career guidance and professional support to a female student at WGU. In this volunteer role, you will serve as a bridge builder on the path to a fellow Night Owl's career success.

Listen, Learn, and Stay Engaged

WGU’s alumni network has grown significantly and we have graduates living in all 50 states. In 2020, the alumni team launched the WGU Alumni Podcast as a new way to engage with its growing alumni base. Each episode highlights the incredible work that our alumni are doing in their local communities and the impact it is having. We also share benefits, perks, resources, and partner information to help you stay engaged and get the most out of the alumni community.
