"So after reading TONS of reviews about WGU (considering for my MBA) I decided since I just completed my degree that I should jump in. I work in HR, currently holding a VP role at my company. I had completed 4 years of college coursework in various fields prior to coming to WGU but when I got into HR I had nothing specific to that field. I transferred in as many credits as possible. At first, it was an adjustment for me to get used to having weekly calls with my mentor. I can tell you that those calls are the reason I made it through. Not all mentors and students will mesh. I had to request a change to a new one shortly after starting. This school will NOT be for you if you are not a self starter. If you are not someone who will get motivated to get the course work and studying done without someone pressuring you, this will NOT be the place to go. It took me several years due to my hectic schedule, but I just finally finished my Bachelor's degree. I can say without hesitation, that the work that WGU makes you do, in most cases, is significantly harder than that I was asked to do at Community Colleges or other Universities that I have attended. There are no cake walk courses that you can just breeze through. You have to work hard. I am proud to say I got my degree at WGU and I'm proud to say I save a fortune over what others pay. Almost all of the negative reviews point towards the same thing. Either a poor mentor (request a new one) or someone isn't cut out for self study courses. If you need help, there ARE people there to help. YOU have to do the work."

"After failing at a completed degree the first time around, WGU gave me a chance to try again. The online experience is flexible and very much at your own pace. Great for Working, single parents. You also have mentors to help you set goals and achieve them through accountability. I would recommend Western Governors University to anyone trying to accomplish their dream of a degree while still having room for whatever life may present to you! You can do it!"

"After obtaining a BS Business Human Resourcemanagement - it has opened my career up to other opportunities. In addition the certifications are highly regarded by employers. I liked it so much Iam back at WGU for the MBA program."

"I loved WGU and the flexibility it provides to someone like me who is very self motivated. My mentor was awesome and kept me on track. I just enrolled in a masters program this week at WGU and I would recommend it to anyone that is willing to work hard and is self motivated."

"This college is not for students who are not self motivated. At times it can be very frustrating especially with Taskstream, the 3rd party grading system. Sometimes, especially at the end of the month, papers can take days to be graded and I have heard horror stories from other students about not receiving a grade before the end of the term; causing an incomplete or did not pass on their transcripts. The other thing that really bothers me is the fact that proctored online exams are not yet able to be taken on the newer operating systems (Windows 8). I had to go to a friends house to take my last proctored online exam, as I live in a rural area and the nearest assessment testing site was several miles away. All in all, I feel as though I am receiving a good education and have learned a ton, but as I said this school is not for everyone. If you have good study and time management skills, this is a good school and the price is excellent."
