Erin W.T. - Because WGU Washington is like a perfect storm of quality (top-notch curriculum), flexibility (do-it-yourself scheduling), and value (outstanding low tuition)!

Dawn B.F. - It allows me to stay home with my kids and still earn my degree.

Jeff W. - WGU Washington works for me because I live on an island. I've got two boys, and I need six months to schedule a haircut, let alone get into a classroom.

Maggie S. - WGU Washington works for me because it provides me the support, stability, & time management coordination… making me an academically successful Night Owl! It allows me the freedom & flexibility to work on my own terms - on my own time - with a minimal amount of cost. I am receiving an amazing education for less than half what all the other universities cost. WGU Washington gives me the freedom to be a full-time mother, full-time wife, & full-time employee while earning my Bachelor of Arts in Special Education. What more could a girl ask for?!

Monica G.G. - WGU Washington works for me because my husband and I both work full-time. We have a toddler, and my husband is enrolled in evening classes at the local college. Both of us can’t physically attend college at the same time. WGU Washington means I can start my program now, rather than waiting for my husband to graduate.

Chandrea B. - WGU Washington works for me because I work and am a mom of two. Going to a brick and mortar school is not an option, and WGU Washington has been so helpful.

Kerrie K.M. - WGU Washington works for me because it allows me to fit school around my crazy schedule! As a full-time working mom of five-year-old twins, that flexibility has been the difference between being successful and not being able to enroll in school at all. I am four classes away from completing my BS and can't wait.

Robin C. - WGU Washington works for me because it lets me be me, not some university's definition of me. I can still work full-time, enjoy my hobbies and family, and balance life AND budget… because of the awesome tuition at WGU Washington. I'm rockin' my degree because of mentors and flexibility! Can't imagine it any other way!

And the “Washington” part? Really? I can study in the shade of a tree by a river, on a ferry, near the mountains, riding the train, or under the stars in the middle of a playing field!

Stefany P.S. - WGU Washington works for me because, in addition to working full-time, I am also a wife and mother. WGU Washington allows me the flexibility to choose when I study and how quickly I want to finish. The support has been amazing.
