“My advisor was wonderful and knowledgeable. We reviewed everything but found that some of the courses I had taken years ago weren’t transferable. We determined that I needed to complete 12 courses before I could begin my concentration. I used StraighterLine to earn the credits I needed for admission to WGU. I really worked hard.”
