Description: With bachelor's and master's degree programs in education, business, information technology, and health professions, WGU's rigorous yet flexible approach to education gives the university a unique advantage over other online programs

Total Enrollment:

Accredidation: WGU programs are based on six-month terms (not traditional semesters). New students may begin their program on the first day of any month


Credit Options: If you have competencies in your degree program due to prior academic or work experience, you may be able to complete the required assessments more quickly. Transfer students with an AA/AS degree may generally enroll as an upper-division BA/BS student.

Platform: As a WGU student, you will prepare for your assessments by accessing online learning resources, studying independently, or using other alternative methods of learning

Geographies: WGU only accepts inquiries and applications from individuals living in the U.S., Guam, and from U.S. military personnel and their spouses at overseas installations

On Campus Requirements: Programs are delivered online and there are no on-campus requirements. However, students in teacher certification programs must complete their teaching practicum in a real K-12 classroom in their geographic area, working with real students
