When can I start?

We're glad you're excited about starting another degree with WGU. You may be wondering when you can get going, and further your education. We want you to get started as soon as possible, which is why we offer start dates on the 1st of every single month. But don't forget that there are some limitations about when you can apply and what degree you can pursue, depending on what program you have already completed. Learn about what your options are for degrees, and start dates.
