Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2020
"This is a great university if you wish to be or are already indoctrinated to such cult ideologies as inherent racism, patriarchy, gender fluidity, toxic masculinity, and violence as an acceptable means of public discourse. If you value feelings over science, subjective assumptions over objective analysis, take pride in being mentally ill/a victim; and abhor values such as: hard work, responsibility, and holding yourself accountable for your actions, this school is for you."

"AWFUL! I am pretty sure they are faking reviews, but here's the deal: If you are hardworking and move too fast through their program, they'll make you waste a whole three months where I cannot take any courses because they want me to enroll in one more semester. Nowhere is it written that I must complete my internship over six months - there is a minimum hour requirement, no time frame. They pull excuses from under rocks if they have to and refuse to engage if you have a complaint by politely redirecting to the same single person, over and over. This university is a scam. Moreover, the courses have readings and assignments that are not aligned, multiple typos on their syllabi, and overall are of poor quality."

"Please take caution!! I have completed 32 CUs in three months and I am now being intentionally held up by the course mentors. The course mentor refuses to help she makes appointments to call me then I never hear from her. I have reached out to the evaluation department to obtain information about needed revisions and I am told it is against school policy for a student to be told what revisions are needed. I have written 7 previous scholarly papers all of which were given a 4 on the rubric. I find it very difficult to understand why now this last class there are issues especially since this class only counts for 2 CUs. Upon completion of this class I will graduate and cut 9 months of my projected graduation. I can not help but believe there is some motive behind delaying me and I am sure it is financially motivated."

"Western Governors University is an excellent institution. It allowed me to get my degree online, while still working full time, and do a good job of balancing both work and school. The program challenged me, and the professors were there every step of the way to give as much or as little help as I needed. Furthermore, WGU is affordable and I was able to finish my degree in less than a year!"
