Degree: Computer Science

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Bachelor of Science course work with WGU. I have been enrolled for 18 months and will finish this year. My experience with WGU has been a very positive one. I have seriously enhanced my resume with various mini certificate programs that I receive during my studies as part of their Curriculum. They are focused on Competency not sitting in a chair for N hours. If you can pass the test because you know the material all the better. I will say I do benefit from being fast... Read More

They constantly pushed my withdraw date back in order to charge me out of pocket, the class they had me in was taken directly from if you want an education with computer science go anywhere else as they don't teach you, they say they do but in reality you're doing the same thing you would online for free by yourself. They lied about two things, I asked to be placed in a lower tier math to practice since I needed to do so, they said it was absolutely fine but instead they forced... Read More

I have worked in IT for many years, now in management I went from an associates to B.S. and I can say after going through WGU I would never want to hire any person with this on their resume and advise anyone going there to transfer somewhere better. I would advise any manager in any position to question these degrees heavily. If you have a lot of knowledge in the field already, WGU will let you speed through courses to get a degree you already have the knowledge for but are lacking the paper. If... Read More

Degree: Computer Science

This is the college for you if you want zero interaction with a competent teacher (or a teacher at all). If you enjoy being told to buy extra books by those mentors as they tell you that you won't pass unless you buy them, and spending days studying old and outdated information in a loaned information system that the mentors have not read and don't understand. If you like spending weeks updating and sending notices to the actual suppliers of the information you are renting about blatantly incorrect... Read More

I just started my degree at WGU last November. I don't see big problems with school. Everything really depends on you. The more hours you put in the faster you will graduate. I will post additional review when more time passes. But so far so good. Another thing I like that program includes many nationally recognized certificates that will look good on your resume even before graduate.

Like a lot of other aspects of life, a degree only matters when you don't have one. I was highly successful in the field of software development. At the peak of my career, I was earning over $21,000 per month. After I left school, I completed 2 years of a BSc in mathematics and computer science. Bored out of my mind, I dropped out to earn money. Earn money I did. I have worked at over 40 corporations worldwide. So why did I choose WGU? Well, at every interview I attended, I would have to overcompensate... Read More
