Special message to Vatterott students: Don't quit!

The decision to go back to school is never an easy one. You made the decision once, when you enrolled at Vatterott College and took the necessary steps to embark on your degree program.

We are deeply sorry for the predicament you now find yourself in—but remember that it’s a predicament you’re in through no fault of your own. So, what do you do now? Keep going! Explore how you can continue on your path to complete your degree at WGU, including special assistance for Vatterott students (see below for more information).

WGU offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in business, IT, K–12 teacher education, and healthcare, including nursing. WGU could be a great fit for Vatterott students like you who are looking for your next step.

  • Credit transfer. WGU has a generous transfer policy for credits earned at an accredited college or university. If you have college coursework that aligns with one of our degree programs, we will work hard to help you get as much credit as you deserve toward your WGU degree.
  • Respect and trust. WGU is an accredited, highly respected national university that has been praised by everyone from Bill Gates to The Atlantic Monthly.
  • Affordability. Compare our surprisingly low tuition—it’s about half as much as what many other online universities charge. And because you pay per term rather than per course or credit, when you graduate faster, you save money.
  • Flexibility and acceleration. With WGU's competency-based model, you complete courses by learning, not by logging seat time or sticking to a syllabus or semester calendar. If you learn fast, study hard, or have previous work and college experience, you can move quickly through some material and spend more time studying what you still have to learn. The average time to complete a bachelor’s degree at WGU is 2½ years!
  • Personalized support. Our faculty members have only one job: to help you graduate. It’s why WGU is regularly recognized as one of the most student-obsessed institutions in higher education—and why 74% of WGU students rate the quality of their faculty interactions as very good or excellent, compared with only 55% nationally.

WGU grads tell their story.

“Enrollment was perfectly easy for me. I was able to submit online and somebody called me within a day to start the whole process. Within two or three weeks I was ready to go for my first term.” Bryon Denton

FASTER

Learn, prove it, move on.

Competency-based education focuses on learning rather than seat time. You’re in the driver’s seat. Each course is a collection of defined competencies—knowledge and skills that employers are looking for from successful graduates. You study on your schedule. As soon as you can prove you’ve mastered the competencies, you take an assessment, pass it, and move on. You spend your time learning new concepts, not rehashing subjects you already know. You can set the pace to graduate early. And in the end, your degree is proof you’ve shown that you’re what employers are looking for!

MORE SUPPORT

Your success is our job.

From before you enroll to after you graduate, our #1 job is a better life for you and your family. Think of it as the best of both worlds: a program that offers complete independence and more support than you ever knew you needed—at exactly the moment you need it! From the enrollment counselor who helps you decide if WGU is the right fit for you, to the faculty mentors who are obsessed with your academic progress, to the student and tech support teams who are eager to help you solve any issues you might encounter as a student, you’re never alone—even though you’re online. And even after you’ve graduated, career and alumni support is just a call away.

GREATER VALUE

Smaller investment, bigger returns.

At WGU, affordability means cutting-edge programs at tuition rates that are half what you’d pay at other online universities. It means graduating with little to no student debt. It means scholarship and financial aid opportunities and minimal, transparent fees. It means a flat-rate per-term tuition so that when you save time you also save money. And it means understanding that value includes quality, flexibility, relevance, and results, not just cost.

Our faculty members have one job: helping you succeed.

Program Mentors.

Personally assigned to you from the day you enroll to the day you graduate, your Program Mentor is your faculty member. They will meet with you on a regular basis to provide program instruction, advice, coaching, support, goal-setting—and a healthy dose of cheerleading to make sure you’re celebrating the little and big wins along the way!

Course Instructors.

Learning independently doesn’t mean learning on your own. Course Instructors are subject-matter experts who work with you regularly to ensure you’re mastering course material. They tailor learning to your needs, and the type and intensity of instructional support you receive varies based on your performance in any particular course.
