Work and School Balance When You Choose WGU for Your Bachelor's Degree
WGU is proud to offer special benefits for the graduates and staff of Ohio Association of Community Colleges (OACC) member colleges.
WGU is the perfect fit for working adults who need a degree to boost their careers but can't fit traditional schooling into their busy lives. That's why hundreds of companies, associations, school districts, municipalities, and other organizations choose WGU as their partner in educating their workforce and graduates.
OACC member college graduates and employees are eligible to receive 5% discount on tuition for the first four terms.
Speak to an Enrollment Counselor for more information about your discount.
One way WGU removes obstacles from your path to achieving your education and career goals is through scholarships, including the $2,500 WGU Community College Partner Scholarship.

Transferring Your Community College Degree or Credits to WGU is Simple
Students with an Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree usually qualify for an Upper-Division standing at WGU. This position allows you to waive up to 40 WGU credit equivalents, also known as Competency Units (CUs) (equal to 60 quarterly credit hours).
Depending on your degree program, you may qualify for additional requirement waivers. If you have completed some college coursework but have not earned a degree, WGU will conduct a transcript evaluation. Your experience may waive some of your requirements.
