3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The best thing about Western Governors University (or in my case Western Governors University Texas) is that it's self paced meaning if you want to do more than 12 CUs in a semester you're paying only for the semester and not by the course.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: You start off with a student mentor who follows you throughout your entire time at WGU/WGU Texas. For each course you take you also have at least one course mentor and with some courses you have more than two course mentors. It's usually easy to get ahold of either a course mentor or your student mentor. But if you have difficultly with a course mentor then I strongly suggest you go to your student mentor for help.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I love the IT program I am in. The instructors are top-notch, the materials and software are very good, and I like the pace.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I like the fact that I can go at my own pace. I get a lot of support from my mentor and from the instructors.
