First reason somebody should attend WGU, if for the flexibility of schedules. With most adult students working full time and trying to raise a family, flexibility in class times are important.

You can take pre-assessments to see if you are ready for the final or need more time. Last, WGU has a great support staff and a National Accredidation that is the same as major state universities.

The first reason is for flexibility. If you are working fulltime, this is perfect. The second is the low tuition rate, at least for the nursing part. You can get a BSN for $4000 every six months. The third is convenience. You can finish at "your own" pace which helps ease the pressure for nervous test takers like me.

WGU is affordable at only $3,060/semester for undergrads. Convenient - work at your own pace, when and where you are able. You pay for the time, not the classes, so you can potentially finish multiple semesters worth of coursework within one 6 month period. The degree and course mentors are wonderful resources for success. Oh, and Governor Brownback and President Obama have both endorsed the school for it's innovation.

  2. It's caring. I love WGU because they are there to support their students. I have a mentor to follow me throughout my time there, as well as individual course mentors with great schedules who can help with a specific question about a course.
  3. It's amazing. If a student finishes all the classes in her semester, she can move forward and work on the next one without paying more. Each semester has a set tuition rate, so if a student can move forward, it's great!

This means that the harder a student works and the faster he or she gets through his or her education, the less actual cost is incurred. 2. Self-paced: No class is so slow that it is boring, nor so fast that a student misses material while. 3. Self-scheduled: There are no classes to attend and because of this, the schooling can fit into a schedule where ever a student is able to make time.

This school is flexible. It is all online and each student can manage their time in whatever way works for them. It is set up so that each student can go at their own pace. If you finish everything for the term you are in, you have the option to do more. This helps get you to graduation quicker if that is what you need. It also goes with you where you need to go. One of my main draws was that I move a lot for my husbands school/job. When I move, WGU goes with me.

Time, move at your own pace. You control how fast or slowly you manage your courses. Cost, because of the competency based learning you can complete more course per dollar spent. There is a flat per semester fee. In order to remain in good standing you must complete at least 8 competency units per 6 months. with this being said, it is actually possible to complete your degree in half the time, and for a lot less money. Accredited; Unlike some schools Western Governors has an actual campus with students and is accredited.
