Other comments

WGU was a good school, but there were too many irrelevant classes under my career field. For example, I am a network administrator. This degree calls for CIW Web foundations cert. This has nothing to do with Network Administration, so it's completely, 100% worthless, but does add another cert to my belt.



Flexible class hours, Good teachers, Affordable, Helpful career services, Positive environment, Good career preparation, Hands-on training

I love WGU it has enabled me to accelerate in my degree. I have taken on roughly 20-30 credits within 6 month spans and currently have 7 classes remaining to graduate.
