Low, Flat-Rate Tuition—Plus Millions in Scholarships

Like you, we hate student debt. It’s why we keep tuition costs low. And it’s how nearly Nearly half of our WGU undergrads completed their degrees without taking out a student loan.*

If you’re thinking about going back to school in 2024, here’s how WGU stacks up:

  • Flat-rate tuition. While other universities charge tuition by credit hour—if you take more courses, you pay more money—WGU doesn’t. We offer have flat-rate tuition, which means you can pass as many courses as you’re able to each term without paying extra. That means that whether you complete eight courses in a term or 20, your tuition won’t change.
  • Finish faster. Our programs are competency-based, meaning you can complete courses as fast as you master the material. Use your existing knowledge to pass assessments and fast-track your degree.
  • Multiple scholarship opportunities: We award millions of dollars in scholarships every year, including opportunities like our New Year Scholarship that’s worth up to $2,500 toward any of our 75+ degree programs. See if you qualify.

They walk you through everything. If you want it, it's there. Getting enrolled and getting started is easy-peasy.”
