Give 2022 a Fresh Start. Earn a Degree That Delivers.

One of the best ways to improve your earning potential, strengthen your job security, and open the door to career advancement is by earning a respected degree. Why not choose a school that will work hard to deliver for you?

  • Choose the best investment. According to a 2021 Harris Poll survey, within two years of graduation, WGU grads increased their pre-enrollment income by an average of $18,200.
  • Maximize our flat-rate tuition. WGU’s flat-rate tuition covers as many courses as you complete each term and breaks down to be as little as $580 per month. And because you can finish most courses as quickly as you master the required material, you really can earn your degree for less.   
  • Apply for the scholarship. For many people, tuition is the biggest barrier to earning a degree. That’s why WGU is offering the Year of You scholarship. Valued at up to $2,500, this scholarship can be applied to any of WGU’s more than 60 career-focused degree programs in business, IT, education, or healthcare. 

Industry and Academic Respect Add Value to Your Degree

WGU is an innovator receiving praise from every sector. When your alma mater is respected, so is your degree.
