Western Governors University is an online university. I am currently in my last year and I have thoroughly enjoyed my career as a student with this college. They have many opportunities to reach out to student mentors if you feel you have any kind of problem. The lectures are online and there are many times available. This is the perfect college for a working person. I would recommend this school to anyone!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it! The classes are structured so well and they are self-paced so if you are very motivated you can complete your degree faster than you would at a traditional school. There is also endless support; the entire staff is always so nice and willing to help in any way! Best online university ever!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Governors University was a perfect fit for me. I live on Hawaii Island and the nearest University is a two hour drive. I am also undergoing chemotherapy so distance learning allows me the flexibility to take a break when I am not feeling well. They offer a wide range of special services available to their students including tutoring, counseling, and legal advice. The mentoring started before enrollment and I was guided in by professionals and alumni. WGU helped me obtain scholarships and grants that made my dream of graduating a close reality. My skepticism of online universities has disappeared and I now realize they are innovations of a productive society.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Governors University is a phenomenal institution for a motivated self starter, adults going back, people in rural communities, and really anyone whose interested in online education. The coursework is challenging, and they have the best online programs. The cost per 6 month term is only 3500 all inclusive and you can finish as many classes as you want and are able to. As someone who was highly motivated and already working in my field of study, getting a masters degree was a breeze, I finished in 9 months because I already possessed the knowledge and WGU didn't hold me back! I highly recommend it to anyone!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After hearing President Obama, our higher education president, outline education goals throughout his administration as essential for economic/societal well-being and specifically mentioning my college Western Governors University (WGU) as a way for the United States to have the highest number of degreed individuals in any country I applied. My school is a Title IV institution which allows me to feel confident in what is taught there. I also appreciate that I can concentrate when it fits my schedule rather than when it fits a schedule set up to the advantage of others. WGU offers solid, competency-based coursework and the potential to pursue all degree levels at a flat fee. I would recommend this school to anyone as a way to improve their life and society.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Governor’s University is an online school. The curriculum is fairly intuitive once you get the hang of things. The professors and instructors are usually very good about following up and giving good advice to help students navigate their courses. The only drawback is learning what is necessary to read and what is not. This is nearly impossible without a phone call to the course instructors. Instructors are very accessible though. They have very good MBA program. All courses are either pass or fail. If you want to transfer to another college you should be aware that your grade point average will transfer as a 3.0 GPA. You should keep this in mind when considering education beyond a master’s degree. If you attend WGU there are weekly calls with a student mentor that you are assigned to work with during the duration of your course work. Though WGU advertises that you can go through their degree programs at your own pace, there is a minimum completion speed to maintain good academic standing. Every student must pass at least one course per semester. Failure to do so is counted as an academic withdrawal. Semesters are exactly six months long. Theoretically because you can attend at your own pace, any degree could be completed in one semester. Between every semester students are allowed up to a three month break. When completing courses, there are usually somewhere between three and five attempts at submitting papers or passing exams. If you are a self-starter and don’t mind playing by the rules, WGU is an excellent place to get a master’s degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very Unique online school and at a really good price. They will take all kinds of transfers as credit including life or job experience. Basically they give you the tools to learn and do not micromanage you. The degrees they have carved out are specific and well thought out. Each and every class they give you is important yet right up the same subject you are likely already interested in so there is not alot of wasted time studying things you do not care about.
