WGU is a nonprofit online university. What does this mean for you? Very affordable tuition. In fact, WGU is half the cost of other online universities. WGU is also approved to offer federal financial aid to those who qualify.
Our competency-based approach measures your progress through your successful completion of challenging assessments. If you have existing competencies from prior work and education, you may be able to draw upon this experience to complete your assessments faster and accelerate your degree program; this will save you both time and money.
WGU’s rigorous, competency-based approach is ideal for self-directed learners anxious to advance their education and careers. Unlike other universities, both traditional and online, WGU doesn’t award degrees based on seat time. Instead, you earn your degree by demonstrating your competence in your field. Through independent study and online resources you learn and master essential skills and knowledge necessary for success. Then, through carefully designed assessments, you prove your competency. Assessments can take the form of essays, exams, research papers, and an assortment of projects that can be completed online.
If your schedule demands flexibility, WGU is for you. In most cases, you will access course material or study independently at the time and place you choose. You can progress at a pace that enables you to earn a college degree while managing your career, your family, and life’s other challenges. Our competency-based approach to education allows for extensive personalization of your program to fit around your busy schedule.
When you become a student, you’ll study under the guidance of a dedicated mentor who will work with and support you from enrollment to graduation. Together, with your mentor, you’ll develop your personalized Degree Plana roadmap and schedule for successfully completing your program.
