Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

As a working professional, this course of study fit well into my work/life schedule. The course material is broad and, like anything, you will get out of it whatever you put into it. That being said, the courses are well structured and offer a good deal of insight into business. Though I had a wealth of business experience prior to participating in this degree program, this program offered knowledge beyond what I experienced as a working professional. I love this school and highly recommend the degree programs.

Degree: Science & Math
Graduation Year: 2014

The BSN program has many mentors and they will assist you with any difficulties. I highly recommend the program and encourage all Nurses wanting to further their education and opportunities. I continued the program non-stop and finished my MSN degree. Highly recommend this program for all working Nurses. The degree is well respected and I became a MSN degreed College Nursing Faculty as soon as I graduated. Good luck!!!

Degree: Health/Health Care Administration/Management
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is difficult because of the amount of applied math involved. That being said, there is no reward without hard work from the student. Love this University. Attended brick and mortar for my first two years and this was a good transition. Not for the traditional student. If you have work, family, obligations, and can discipline yourself to put in the hours and effort, then this will be a good experience.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in business management. The mentors were extremely helpful. The classes were well put together and high quality. The program is low cost especially if you can do a significant number of credits per term. The faculty was very competent and supportive. The assignments were actually very helpful. I would highly recommend this school for self-driven busy students.

Degree: MBA in Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2017

Excellent school. The mentor's really help you move along and ensure you pass each course. I just graduated (2017) with a degree in MBA IT. I also used my Post 911 GI Bill and had no issues in payments (one of the reasons I chose this school; had good financial aid reviews).

Degree: Italian Language and Literature
Graduation Year: 2017

YOUR CREDITS AT WGU FOR THE MOST PART, WILL NOT BE RECOGNIZED BY MOST UNIVERSITIES. Example, lower level electives are 50-70% ok to transfer from WGU, but all major courses will be given zero credit. SO please understand unlike any other university, you can never leave and go to another school unless you are OK with starting over and paying again.

Degree: Italian Language and Literature
Graduation Year: 2017

If your self-motivated with decent reading comprehension this is the school for you. You work at your own pace and can complete a degree as quickly as your able to digest the material. If your expecting hand holding or someone to read the material to you go somewhere else as you will fail at WGU.

Degree: MBA in Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2015

I graduated from WGU with a MBA in Information Technology. I received a technical bachelor degree from the University of Washington. Having gone through the experience of getting a degree from a traditional college and then one from an online university, I have to say WGU is not for everyone. WGU is a school for people who are very self motivated and don't need much hand holding. The course is also not easy. I will be honest, it took me 2.5 years to get my MBA IT degree and that is because I had to take Financial Analysis and Strategic Management twice. Financial Analysis in my opinion was the hardest class in the entire program and it kicked my butt. If you can pass that class you can pass any of the other classes. Would I recommend WGU to folks? No I wouldn't since most people want the full college experience. If you only care about the education and forgo the parties/social life that accompany the true college experience, then you should give WGU a chance. It won't be easy but for sure you'll learn a lot. Also WGU don't have the branding compared to elite schools, so if you care about that then the school isn't for you. Lastly, from my personal experience (which I hope is just me) I didn't really see much of an impact to my salary or career growth after getting my MBA from WGU. I hope I am the exception not the norm.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Awesome. Learn way more than at a traditional university school. I have been to both. Learning approach is a lot more focused on what I will carry into my professional career. Flexible and affordable. Thankful to have come across this college. Will continue to go for my masters here.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I love WGU! I enjoyed that I was able to pass some courses very quickly because I had experience in that area. This allowed me to focus more on the courses I wasn't as familiar with. When I met challenges in courses, I was able to easily find the answers I needed, usually within course chatter. My student mentor was extremely responsive. I have loved talking to her frequently and am going to miss our chats. She kept me on track, as it was sometimes easy to procrastinate. You really need to be very self-motivated to be successful, as your only deadline to complete everything is the last day of the term. I liked that I could do things as my scheduled allowed, and not when it is convenient for the instructors. I could do everything overnight. The learning materials were easy to use. Simple to turn in assignments. Never had a problem with taking tests. I recommend WGU to all of my nursing friends looking to further their education. Haven't had a single problem in a year and a half.
