I have really enjoyed my first 2 months at WGU. My mentor is awesome and she keeps me accountable in hitting my weekly and monthly academic goals. I really enjoy the convenience and resources that WGU has to offer. I will definitely be a proponent for the school for other working adults, like myself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was a great college to go to online, a lot of these questions do not take into account for the online courses. I own a small construction company, so being able to do school work on my terms, while also being able to run a company, made school a lot more manageable. Great overall experience!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a wonderful option for alternative students and utilizeses established methods. There is no physical campus and students can study at their own pace within a given semester parameter, making sure to meet basic progress milestones. The student mentors are essential and function as a liaison. Course mentors are experts in their field.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student in the RN to BSN program at Western Governors University, I had a great experience. This university provided me with the opportunity to complete my degree, on my schedule, in record time at a very low cost. Although it was a completely online program I felt very supported. My program mentor checked in with me weekly and my course instructors often sent emails reminding me that they were available if I had questions or concerns. For anyone considering this degree program, I would highly recommend obtaining an education from WGU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Best school ever. I am so thankful I found a college that is affordable and works with my schedule. My biggest fear was getting into debt, but thanks to Western Governors University I am able to survive. I never thought going to work full time and college full time would be a possibility, but WGU made it so!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love WGU, the fact that tuition is cheap, its accessible anywhere, its flexible with your schedule, everything is on your time. Self accountability and responsibility at its highest. Your mentor is always there for you, and there are plenty of resources if you feel that you are falling behind in class. This school completely breaks the traditional schooling paradigm and only gives you what you need to know that specializes to that degree. I HIGHLY recommend it. No more wasting time with a bunch of material.
