5 College Senior

Online Courses: I love the online courses and find it more convenient for me to utilize because I'm a single Mom and I work full time. I can do my homework on my own time and don't have the pressure of being in a seated class at a certain time. As I stated before I have a great mentor who I can contact at any time should I have any questions or problems and I feel like they are all about my success.

Academic Flexibility: Since I work full time and am a single Mom, the online classes at WGU have been a positive fit for me. My whole experience with WGU has been positive from transferring credits to doing my homework.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Every interaction I have had with WGU as been top notch and very professional. Anyone I have dealt with has treated me like I'm the only one who matters. The staff has been very attentive to my needs and concerns. My classes have been the best and I love the one on one experience with my mentor.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The way the classes are organized and presented are top notch. My classes are set up in a way one flows right into the next. The cohort classes go right along with the material and are an added bonus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think with any education it is beneficial to the person no matter what the institution is. In obtaining my Associates Degree, my current employers gave me a substantial increase in pay and informed me more will come when I've competed my Bachelors Degree.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: First and foremost I feel I am getting a quality education for a fraction of the cost of other traditional institutions. My experience with the financial aid department was a positive in that they guided me through the process step by step.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I like the fact that this college is competency based and my years of employment have helped factor my progress. The workload is attainable and the curriculum is beneficial to my current employment.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: One thing I love about WGU is the Cohort sessions. They are very helpful in understanding the courses and passing the assessments. I also like the fact that I have a Mentor who I can call at anytime and discuss any problems I am having. The mentor I have has been very helpful to my success at WGU.

Campus Resources: Although all of my classes are online, I have had nothing but a positive experience with any interaction I've had with Western Governors from my classes to financial aid.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses are very relevant to the degree. I have been in the industry over a decade, and i see the theories that they are teaching about, and preparing the students for in practical application in my career. They are doing a very good job for taking me to the next step.

This school is not for people who just want a piece of paper, and I think the REAL student, who is willing to put in the effort, is going to enjoy this.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The setup, including application, registration, payment, and follow-through on the part of the school was great.

Several people assessed the process, and helped to prepare me for what I was getting myself into. I like it, and would suggest this school.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: Online is the only way that I want to do this, so the format is great. It is better, and smoother, than the other online formats that I have been exposed to, so first out of four is pretty good in my books.

The courses are morphing in their delivery techniques, because as newer examples or better presentations are available, they are added, or overwrite older, or lesser quality information.

The mentor structure gives me one mentor that helps guide the entire process, then course-mentors for specialty material, or in-depth questions.

I love this format.

4 College Junior

Student Body: This is an online degree, so the student interaction is there, if I wanted, but with my busy schedule I am there to learn. The social opportunities, and communication is encouraged, and they offer face-to-face socials, but I have not taken them up on it, due to a heavy schedule.

4 College Junior

Career Services: I have not tried their career services yet, but I am positive that they will match the other excellent student-centric services that they offer, and I have taken advantage of.

I am giving a high rating in advance, because I am judging what I have yet to know with my high satisfaction with what I HAVE seen and know.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am really being pushed to my limits, and academically, i am sure that these classes are preparing me for what I will and could face. I am presently facing them in my company, so the material is extremely relevant and topical.

It is a necessity for WGU student to not only learn how to answer questions, but the students are required to think. They ARE NOT a paper-mill, and I think my degree will hold weight.

Challenging, and dynamic experience!

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The vast variety covered in the curriculum is preparing me to handle the serious business areas that my later career will need. The decisions that my upper-level management are facing are WITHIN the curriculum that WGU is exposing me to.

I would never take a degree from a university that did not have a class involving Ethics in business, and they have this. Any fool can regurgitate material, but I feel that WGU prepares ethical decision-makers and independent thinkers. I have 140+ credit hours of college experience, surrounding a few other degrees, and WGU is my most challenging and is my favorite.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: They have more than enough resources for the diligent student. MBA IT Management, and they are preparing me for a lot of different scenarios. The online library and learning materials are so vast that I cannot read or get to all of them, but am still passing. Combined with my real-world experience, this is a great supplement to getting me to a leading role in my company.

Many times, the flexible scheduling can hurt the lazy or those that are bad at time-management, but then again, this is a Master's level program. I expected to work hard, and am.

With my busy schedule, this is the only feasible way to attain the degree, so outstanding results.

The mentors I have come across are very knowledgeable, and willing to help.
