    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.

    The perfect online program for motivated self learners who know where they going. I'm an RN with 30 years experience and an Associate Degree. WGUs Associate to Masters bridge program allows me to return to school utilizing their competency based programs which give me college credits for my experience, accept my transfer credits and allow me to challenge courses in areas of study where I am already proficient. Perfect.

    WGU is amazingly convenient, accommodating, and encouraging for all types of learners! WGU has been life changing for me. Not only by their affordability but by allowing me to determine when and how I complete my degree as well as providing a mentor who cares just as much as I do about my success!
