Making Degrees Affordable for All
You have unique financial needs. While you may only need to borrow a small sum to afford a degree, another student may need to borrow more. This is where responsible borrowing comes in. The Responsible Borrowing Initiative at WGU focuses on helping students borrow only what they need, enabling us to offer financial aid to more students. Smaller loans also allow students to pay off debt faster.
When each student borrows only what they need and nothing more, we expand educational opportunities to all. Our Responsible Borrowing Initiative has resulted in 65% of WGU borrowers accepting the recommendation to borrow less, with another 10% declining loans altogether.
Responsible borrowing has led to:
- Less overall debt - Undergraduate students at WGU graduate with half the debt of their peers across the country.
- Reduced borrowing - Of the WGU students who borrow, this program has reduced the average amount borrowed by over $5,000 since 2014.
