Everyone’s buzzing about us - rave reviews for WGU.

It's enough to make a Night Owl blush.

Top government officials, academic experts, major media, and leading employers throughout the American economy have had a lot to say about WGU lately—and they've been saying very nice things.

See what we mean:

Pretty nice, huh?

Some of the many recognitions, write-ups, and rave reviews WGU has received just this year include:

  • The White House highlighted WGU in its report on successful programs. A report from the Vice President's Office examining postsecondary education and job-training programs praised WGU as an example of what's working well—and what other institutions could learn from.
  • The National Council on Teacher Quality called us #1. WGU's secondary math education program was named #1 in the nation by NCTQ, and we were one of only 10 universities to have two programs in the organization's top rankings—among 2,400 programs nationwide!
  • We're a top Military Friendly School five years running. The 2015 Military Friendly® Schools list listed WGU as one of its top schools for active-duty and retired military personnel, veterans, and their families for the fifth year in a row.
  • Major national media are telling the WGU story as an example to other institutions looking to provide high-quality, affordable, flexible, nontraditional education and improve the lives of more Americans. From Vox to Money to Forbes to NPR, WGU is getting lots of media attention as reporters and education experts look at ways to improve education, increase access, emphasize affordability, reduce debt, and prepare more Americans for a rapidly changing job market. And those stories are just the tip of the iceberg. Check out all our latest news coverage »
