Murphy - 10/7/2020
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2020
"Overall WGU was great and I will always be a nightowl. However it is not a 5 star review for a couple of reasons, in the masters program that I took you cannot add specialization or certificates to the degree! The other reason I'm downgrading a star is that with 2 classes left they changed the capstone of my program which created unnecessary stress of obtaining passed courses for the task in the capstone. Had they made the changes earlier in my completion the stress and frantic emails wouldn't have been a part of my experience. Overall I recommend the school especially for accelerators such as myself."

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - 11/19/2018
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018
"This school is nothing more than a degree mill acting as a non profit. Anyone who cannot notice how the main objective is money money money! I had the one terrible terrible enrollment counselor who lied about financial aid as they all seem to do. The scholarship are nothing more than bait on a hook to try to reel you in."

Working RN - 2/26/2017

"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."

Elaine - 8/31/2016
Degree: Organizational Leadership

"I had a great experience at WGU. The mentors were very supportive and kept me on track. I was told to set aside around 20 hours per week for school I didn't think I would need that much time, but I did. This is not an easy program. It requires dedication and hard work. The flexibility of this program was very helpful to me. Overall, I am extremely pleased."

Nurse Ratched - 6/17/2014
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014
"I just wanted to say that WGU has been a great experience for me. It has offered me a graduate program that is affordable and credited.I could never afford to get my MSN any other way, the cost will be twice as much at least. Yes, WGU is a lot of work. Yes, you will work on your own, but you have mentors and Capstone Evaluators who work with you and guide you along the way. You get exactly what you put into it. The program is very doable. It has helped me developed the ability to work independently. Yes, you will do a lot of writing, but if you follow the rubric for each course, you will succeed. I have finished my MSN in 13 months. I highly recommend WGU to everyone."
