Western Governors University is a private online university with satellite campuses in 8 states. WGU uses a “competency-based” learning model that focuses on concrete skills over abstract schooling. All students are assigned a “working mentor” to create their Academic Action Plan and will be advised by that mentor from enrollment to degree fulfillment. Favored fields of study include computer and information systems security, business administration and management, and human resources management.
awesome on-line school for those who have family, jobs or require flexibility. mentors are very supportive and always available. you must be self motivated to succeed at on-line learning though.

wgu receives top ratings for online students pursuing a bachelor degree in special education and have found it exhilarating and at times a challenge. i currently work 40 hours per week and find it fits my schedule and has been well worth the time and effort.
