    Making the switch to Western Governors University was by far the best decision I have made in my educational career. The school provides easy to navigate courses with exceptionally helpful course instructors. There is also an abundant amount of additional material besides the text, such as videos and webinars.

    Online structure allows for any lifestyle, especially for the adult student. Mentors keep us on track each week and everyone is very prompt returning emails or phone calls with any questions. However, you must have a certain level of self discipline to succeed.

    The only school of its kind. This is for the student that wants their degree, without all the party-crazy garbage that is prevalent in traditional brick&mortor colleges. The best part is the pace is set by you and your schedule.
