Why a degree and certifications?

At WGU, we want you to succeed. That's why we offer degrees that include top industry IT certifications.

But IT certifications can be expensive and time consuming. At WGU, our goal is to help with that. By including certification fees in our tuition, and adding certification work in our curriculum, you will leave WGU with your degree AND these top certifications, all at the same time.

If you're interested in pursuing a career in IT, a degree and certifications will work together to give your more opportunities and skills.

Get started down the path to an exciting new career, today.
