If it weren’t for the fact I’m a single mom and this was the cheaper option I’d have a left already. You pay the school and they still make you jump through hoops to get any information from teachers, test scores aren’t usually able to been seen and the all around structure is just stupid. Could never recommend this school to anyone

My favorite so far is design a playground and make sure it's culturally... Read More

WGU has these mentors who babysit you every week to make sure your doing your job. The courses you have to have everything exactly the way they want it or the entire task gets rejected. Seems like a planned set back to keep you in school. Simple things that can just be marked down and still accepted at normal universities and still be equivalent to an A- or a B+. They require everything to be exactly the way they want it and the instructions are not exactly clear.

You find a leap of information that... Read More
