I was reading some the reviews for the cybersecurity BA program. I think any logical person can see right through some of these 1 star reviews. These people are subpar and can only complain. ISC2 is a great certificate add on and yes, you have to drive to their test center! This is a great program for a cyber bachelor's degree. You also have the opportunity to gain so many certificates. It's the best of both worlds.

wgu must cut their relationship with isc2, otherwise we want refund. i dont want to be forced to take class that i supposed to take with you, but instead you make to class outside wgu ? how is that okay? where is the management ? do they understand that wgu is school and isc2 just certification company that must of dont care about ? if i wanted just collect certification, i would done so, i wouldn't go to wgu. so when the school is not online change the to website so we can know.

here is the classes that are not online: Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) they both are not online and you must drive to take it in the test center. if you fail first time u must wait 1 month second time 3 month. and you only get "Associate" so not the full cert. it useless in many way. WGU will NOT care about their students. SO They will not remove it. please don't go to this school.

in cybersecurity program there is 9 certs useless certification, you MUST take all the certification other wise you won't graduate. and NOT all the certification are online some must be take in person. there is no alternative classes for those who want to take it online so they force the students to go to the test center to take useless certification. if you fail two times in any of these useless certification you must pay from your own pocket, and for example isc2 if you fail two times you must...

I signed up at WGU from all the good reviews. But I guess it depends on the mentor and major. My mentor and instructor were awful. Every week he would ask how's everything and then that's the end of the convo. He also would call an hour after our scheduled time, so it was about a 2 minute convo. No motivational skills at all and the instructor was no help. He sent me quizlets and very useful info 2 months after I failed my first test that could've helped me from the beginning. I ended up withdrawing... Read More

The school is in trouble with regulating bodies. Do not go here unless you're prepared to teach yourself out of a book for the sole means of instruction in every single class you take. Classes in a semester run consecutively not concurrently, so by the time you finish one class you are well past the normal drop/add period when you can withdraw without a financial penalty. You cant see what the rest of the classes look like. The first class had several videos and there was little bit of instructional... Read More

WGU is truly unique and is not for everyone. If you are not a disciplined self learner then you may struggle with your studies. All course material is provided online and there is no peer interaction. I was okay with this since I like to study on my own. My only complaint would be the course instructors. The course instructors tend to be hands off unless you ask for assistance. Program mentors on the other hand are extremely valuable. My program mentor was amazing and really helped me stay motivated.... Read More

Prenote: I was working as an IT Desktop Support agent and wanted to get into security and advance my career. I was making $48000 doing it back in 2015. Here it is 2021, have my Bachelors degree in Cybersecurity, have a lot of WGU sponsored certificates and am working as a so-called Security Analyst making $49,920. They say the skills don't warrant any more money and that it's just an online degree like U of Phoenix. I thought going to WGU would help me in some way to get a good paying job, to get...

I earned my B.S. in Cyber Security and Information Assurance at WGU. I transferred in my Associates degree, and A+ certifications, which provided me with 68 transfer credits, and 54 credits to complete at WGU. I completed my degree in under two 6-month terms. I would suggest others to begin their college journey through their local community college, as I did, and transfer their Associates degree into WGU. This will provide you with a strong foundation in writing and collaborative skills in addition... Read More

I am very happy with WGU and how they manage their classes and curriculum. I started off at a local school that had students taking finals with Google, so was happy when I saw all of the tests at WGU are proctored so you have to know the subject of the class. After talking with many hiring managers I have found out they have a lot of respect for graduates of WGU and have had many good experiences with hiring those who graduated before me. I haven't spent much time with course mentors, though my current... Read More
