Student & Graduate Reviews (8)

Degree: Anthropology, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

WCU is a great school if you're self driven and not easily distracted. A lot of students there are, honestly, fairly lazy, and it's easy to get dragged down if you can't focus yourself. The classes are high quality, the teachers are great (and are reprimanded when they're not). The campus is beautiful and easy to get around, though watch out for ice and slush in the winter.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

It was the perfect place for an engaging, challenging, and enjoyable undergraduate experience. It earns the place of the top adventure college in the nation fairly with all the outdoor activities avaliable on and off campus.

Degree: Computer and Information Systems Security/Information Assurance
Graduation Year: 2012

Its a great place to finish growing up. the emphasis on learning instead of research is a welcome change from most other universities. it is a small college so you get more time with professors.

This was the second best decision I made. The first best, was studying abroad.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2013

WCU is a great school, though it's easy to fall behind and make less than amazing grades if you aren't a self motivated person. The campus is beautiful, though sometimes I wish they would spend less money renovating things like the fountain and more money fixing up some of the dorms, especially the freshman dorms. There are good restaurant choices on campus, and also a convenience store and dining hall.

Degree: Natural Resources/Conservation, General
Graduation Year: 2012

WCU is an excellent school for many things. Natural Resources is not their strongest point unfortunately. However they do have many excellent degrees in other areas.

Degree: Emergency Management
Graduation Year: 2014

Non-profit schools are the ticket. A great education at an affordable price at a state supported regionally accredited institution, what a deal. The annual tuition rate is wrong on this site however. 1 credit hour is only $134.00 so you can do the math.

The Emergency Management program has 9 required classes (27 credit hours) in the program. You do have to take 30 credit hours of upper level classes at WCU so you may have to take a couple extra because EDM 250 is a lower level class and doesn't count toward this requirement. So by taking the required classes you end up with 24 upper level hours so then you make up the other 6 hours with 2 upper level EDM electives.

The remaining 87 credit hours of general education and electives classes can be taken at a community college and transferred in at an even lower cost. So you can really get the degree and only spend around $4400 for it at WCU, of course that doesn't count the community college cost. This is what I have done and its worked great.

The on-line program has been well-structured to assist professional educators further their education, increase their resources and fine-tune their skills. The program makes it as doable as possible to work full-time while furthering one's education.
