To create a student account, you must be at least 16 years old to use this service. If you are not 16 years of age, please have a parent or legal guardian fill out this form and submit it here to use the service (click on "I'm a student or alumnus" and follow the prompts).

To login with the mobile app(s): use your WGU username and password for single sign on (SSO).

WGU Staff & Faculty Access


 

Campus partners who work with students and/or alumni in an advising or mentoring role can create a demo student account to receive career-related updates, view which employers are recruiting WGU talent, and share opportunities with students and alumni. This is intentional. To best assist your students, your experience should mirror exactly the experience of a student as they navigate through the platform. ​​​​​​
