SALT LAKE CITY — As nearly 13,000 students across the country are affected by the closure of Argosy University, Western Governors University (WGU) President Scott Pulsipher today announced that the university has created transfer pathways and is offering scholarship opportunities for those students seeking to complete bachelor’s and master’s degrees at WGU.
President Pulsipher offered encouraging words to the nearly 13,000 students impacted by Argosy’s closure: “Don’t give up. You’ve worked too hard and come too far to give up on your dreams of a better life now. At WGU, our competency-based programs offer students the flexibility to earn credentials on their schedule, with the option to accelerate, and our tuition is very affordable. WGU won’t be the right fit for every Argosy student, but it may be a great option for many who don’t want to let their hard work go to waste.”
The Finish Strong Scholarship is a competitive program and is available for any of WGU’s more than 60 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in business, nursing and healthcare, information technology, and teacher education. Scholarships will be awarded based on the student’s academic record, previous college experience, readiness for online study, current competency, and other considerations.
In addition to the scholarships, WGU will waive the university’s $65 application fee as well as the first-term resource fee of $145 for Argosy transfer students. WGU’s dedicated admissions staff are on standby to review Argosy University students’ situations and answer transfer or other questions.
