Degree: Health Information/Medical Records Administration/Administrator
Graduation Year: 2014

I attended WGU, a completely online program for my bachelor's degree. At first, I was a little uneasy about not having that face-to-face contact with instructors and peers, but how WGU lays out the program and the different ways to connect really impressed me. Each student gets their own mentor who calls weekly to check in and to make sure the student it staying on task. They are also the gatekeeper for any questions you may have about course work. This was great for me! Knowing I had someone calling me on a scheduled day and time really kept me working hard. WGU also has online community board where students working on the same class can go and post questions or just vent. I may have not taken the "traditional" way to obtain my BA but it was a great experience and was well worth it.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The best bang for your buck in a teaching career. Easy to do when trying to hold down a job. This is the most affordable school or masters' degree in the United States of America. However, I would recommend choosing a degree in a high needs area, like special education, science or math.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

Outstanding University with great resources, responsive mentors and advisers. This University supports the learner and monitors progress to promote success. BE PREPARED to work hard, meet deadlines, and be self motivated or one can get off track and waste tuition. The high academic standards prepared me for my doctoral program as well with the high standards required. My experience was excellent and with my years of experience, I felt prepared for the leadership role that I took immediately upon graduation. I would have returned for my doctorate if they had the program it was such an excellent and supportive school.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

As a professional, I was used to self-study to get individual certifications. The additional benefit to WGU is that most of my certifications that I needed for classes applied to my job. I could not say that for any other university that I had taken classes at over the past 20 years.

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: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

WGU was a great stepping stone. The course work was challenging and the teachers were more than happy to help. Since I attended online, the schedule was very flexible. The best part about this University was the flat fee for 6 months of tuition. I was able to take as many classes as I wanted and the fee was the same, all book were included. I really enjoyed attending Western Governors University and would recommend it for any self-motivated learner.
