"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."
