DEGREES & PROGRAMS
Online Degrees From an Accredited University, in Less Time
It’s not about class time. It’s about learning.
WGU’s approach to learning is designed to fit your learning style, your schedule, your life. All of our online degree programs are competency-based, which means you’ll earn your online degree as soon as you can demonstrate that you’ve mastered the material. Competency-based education (CBE) measures actual knowledge, not time spent in class.
Finish courses by proving what you know, as soon as you're ready.
