Ease! How long did we all spend dreading college costs? I could not, with all the time and energy in the world express how much college being affordable means to me. We should all be able to finance our dreams, our goals in life. WGU makes that a reality.

Western governors university is 100% online, you are able to learn at your own pace, take one class at a time to really focus on that one subject and grasp the concepts rather than juggle several different classes at once.

"I applied for university and the staff was very helpful..."

I applied for university and the staff was very helpful in understanding the admissions process and requirements to join. They want to ensure all students can succeed in their online environment so they recommend their WGU academy before enrolling in the actual college to get a feel for how well you’ll do at university.

"WGU is a nonprofit school whose tuition and fees were..."

WGU is a nonprofit school whose tuition and fees were much lower than other online colleges: about $3,000 per six-month term.100% online degree and satisfied for tuition fee and Programs to support students. The classes are online and organized well. The classes are rigorous and require a lot of work. The program is self-paced, so I'm able to graduate sooner if I can finish the classes faster.

I love Western Governors University!!! The classes are self-paced in a sense so depending on how much time you can commit to classes you can finish in a good amount of time. They have tons of resources for you such as Mentor, Videos, and More Videos (a tutor if you need it).
