Western Governors University

School Summary

Online degrees based on your skills and knowledge.

At Western Governors University, we emphasize mastery of essential skills and knowledge instead of accumulating credit hours. Progress towards your online degree is based on passing rigorous assessments (such as tests, projects, and assignments) that measure your skills and knowledge in your field of study. We call it competency-based learning.

With multiple degree programs in education, business, healthcare, and information technology, WGU's rigorous yet flexible approach gives the university a unique advantage over other online programs. Here's what the WGU advantage means to you:

' An online learning and assessment model that gives you flexibility and control over your education.
' A mentoring team committed to your success.
' A trusted quality education from the only university to have ever received accreditation from four regional accrediting commissions.
' Affordable tuition with the possibility of accelerated learning that equals lower costs for your education.

Challenging and efficient. These are the hallmarks of WGU's competency-based approach. Learn more today!
