Program Mentors at WGU are focused on ensuring that students have the support they need to be successful. Organizing schedules, answering questions, checking in regularly, and offering any support needed is their job. This helps students stay on-track, gain confidence, and accomplish their goals.
WGU students are able to continue to work while they are attending school. Because most of our programs are entirely online and can be done at any time, in any place, keeping your current full-time or part-time job is completely possible. Students are able to continue to work and directly apply what they are learning on the job.
Courses at WGU are all meant to be directly applicable and relevant to careers. Our goal is to ensure students are prepared for their future, so our coursework is focused on meeting that goal. WGU students see that everything they learn in their courses applies directly to real-world experiences on the job.

A WGU education is not only worth the cost, it's more affordable from the start. Our tuition rates are about half of other online universities, and grants, scholarships, and financial aid make it even more affordable. Tuition is charged per six-month term instead of per credit, allowing you to take as many courses as you want without paying more. Our goal is to give you a quality education that is truly affordable.
