On the home page of the Owl’s Nest you will find everything you need! Look through the carousel of activities at the top to see what tasks look fun and interesting to you. You can also select the challenges option in the top menu bar to see all the channels and activities to pick from.

Below the carousel, you’ll find discussion posts. Here you can network with fellow Night Owls! There’s a lot of fun discussions to participate and even more educational topics to help you learn more about your program of interest.

On the right-hand side, you’ll see your Daily Bonus points. Click the button each day to claim your points for coming back to the Owl’s Nest! You’ll earn more and more points each day and it will reset at the end of the week so you can start again.

If you need to update any of your profile information, click on the icon in the top right corner and select edit profile.


There are many activities to complete! Some will allow us to learn about you, others will let you get to know WGU—all will earn you points. Once you become a student, you’ll be able to redeem your points for WGU Swag!


Redeem your points for WGU Swag in the Rewards section! We have exclusive swag to select from or you can turn in your points for a WGU gift card.

If you are a student, alumni, or returning graduate, you will have the option to redeem a select number of points to select your Owl’s Nest Gift once you have completed all the activities in the welcome channel.


Here it is, the new and improved Refer-a-Friend program! You asked for it, and we delivered—there are now two ways to refer your friends to WGU. You can now fill out the form to tell us about your referral or you can share your new referral link that is attached to your new Owl’s Nest profile.
