"This "School" is a joke, heck i wouldn't even call it a school. More like an accredited diploma mill. They boast how their tuition is "Only" 6000 year, well heck that's alot of money especially when all you're getting are correspondance courses not worht crap, and is only used as busy work. The so called assignments are a joke, the IT certifications, well all you have to do is study the free download braindump questions online and take the test. The capstone was a joke. All you have to do is make up about 10 pages of nonsence , submit it on taskstream, and i guarantee it will come back as a 'pass'. HAHA then you receive an email saying you've 'Graduated' and how will you like your name displayed on your fake diploma. I don't even list WGU on my resume. My Associates from a real college is sufficient. People laugh when they hear you've "Attended" WGU onlinej, what a quack of an institution. I received absolutely no education value with this bs program. Pissed away about 10K for nothing. The only good thing is that I can put down I have a 4 year degree on the yearly Census. Don't waste your money with this crap, attend a State University or even a for Profit instittuion. WGU boasts how they are a private not for profit, that's total BS. All they care about is taking your 6K every year and all you get are links to online study material. They don't even provide the damn books free only E Texts which are next to impossible to read, and a piece of crap T Shirt and coffee mug. Stay away from this nonsence and go out and get a real education. Check all the college catalogs out there and you'll never see WGU listed anywhere. This place is a joke."

"I will be completly honest. WGU is NOT for everyone. If you're someone that needs to be reminded to do something, you're probably better off attending a brick and mortar school. I'm a bit lazy myself so one thing that's helped me so far has been my weekly meetings with my mentor. He makes me commit to certain task and holds me to it each week. The quality of what you're learning is solid. I've learned things in math, I had no clue how to complete before. I'm just about to complete one of the most complex papers I've ever written in my life. I'd say I've learned a great amount while enrolled at WGU. It's what you make of it. To those bashing the school, I'm sure if they'd look deeper into their situation they'd find that the school wasn't their issue."

"I am absurdly frustrated in my career because I feel I did not learn anything at WGU. Is it cheap? Yes. Quick? Yes. Does it provide good education? NO! This school should not be allowed to continue open. It's a disgrace to colleges. I didn't take one class with one real teacher my whole degree. It's pathetic and I hate myself for doing this.I graduated 4 years ago and am still making only 36K because I am unable to advance in my career & unfortunately I blame the cheap education I receive. All they want is your money."

"I will forever be grateful to this institution that has saved me from the agony of my life, my past mistakes. I am shocked to see some bad reviews - I cannot comment in the other degree majors but for someone who in Information Technology field, an Information Technology professional, who is seeking a Bachelor Degree - WGU is the best and only choice. WGU is regionally accredited. Please do not waste time going to any school that is not regionally accredited. I cannot emphasize it enough.WGU IT curriculum accepts credits for industry standard certificates. Which should be a piece of cake, for someone who is working in the field. I completed my degree in seven months while working full time and taking care of a family of four. Show me a school where you can complete a Bachelor degree in little over a semester - my only regret, I should have planned better and complete in 6 months.I already completed 10 Master level classes under a certificate program from a regionally accredited brick and mortar school. Just three classes away from a full master degree which is now possible.I think some students are having hard time because curriculum is competency based - means you need to master the subject. Not like traditional schools where you party all month - cram your way out night before the exam. I was one of those student and who miserably failed at that as well - thank God for WGU - who gave me a second chance."
