Degree: Healthcare Administration

I enrolled at WGU with high hopes of bridging over to my Bachelor's degree. I went through 3 program mentors. Two of them were useless babysitters who half the time never showed up to the meeting and when they did, it was nothing more than a babysitter check-in. While taking my Foundations in Healthcare Data Management class in my second semester, I ran into some issues. I failed the final once and used what little the results showed to study in the areas I lacked. Took the exam a second time and... Read More

Overall, I rate the school a 3. I think that most students paint this whimsical picture of WGU because, essentially, you can complete as many courses in a term as you can pass, but the whole picture is diluted by this image. [Personally, I have been accelerating as well, and averaging about 2 courses per month. By the end of my term, I will likely have completed 40 credits, and 50% of my program. So, I expect to graduate in 2 terms. Do I think that it is possible to complete my specific program in... Read More

This university is amazing but not for everyone. You have to realize what you are signing up for. Competency based education means more personal accountability and less help from professors. You have to be comfortable studying material and looking for answers yourself. I loved the model and the flat rate tuition. This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is perfect for working adults trying to finish their degree and boost their career.

WGU is a wonderful institution. Initially when I started my search I was a little skeptical of enrolling in an online university but after researching WGU's credibility and accreditation I was satisfied enough to start there. The program has been exceptional. I had the best student mentor and course mentors. The faculty was always there when I needed and many times went beyond what they needed to help me. It was like I was learning one on one. This program is phenomenal for people who are disciplined... Read More

I attended WGU, a completely online program for my bachelor's degree. At first, I was a little uneasy about not having that face-to-face contact with instructors and peers, but how WGU lays out the program and the different ways to connect really impressed me. Each student gets their own mentor who calls weekly to check in and to make sure the student it staying on task. They are also the gatekeeper for any questions you may have about course work. This was great for me! Knowing I had someone calling... Read More

This program is difficult because of the amount of applied math involved. That being said, there is no reward without hard work from the student. Love this University. Attended brick and mortar for my first two years and this was a good transition. Not for the traditional student. If you have work, family, obligations, and can discipline yourself to put in the hours and effort, then this will be a good experience.

This program has great potential, however please make sure you get a mentor that communicates with you. Mine had me on the wrong version of a test twice and when it was realized the university did not give me extra retakes for the exam. She also failed to mention the school's policy on how many times you can attempt a test despite my asking her. Then when I called to withdrawal from the university because of the situation, she told me I would get a refund, but was mistaken about the policy and when... Read More

Went from a 2 year brick and mortar community college to WGU. Impressed by the support, great, caring staff and management, and the quality of the program. REGIONALLY accredited, for the most affordable price, especially if you are one that can advance in your studies. No Regrets At All. My best experience so far are the great mentors for the courses and my current mentor. Mentors help to understand, hold me accountable, and help to keep me focused to succeed. I recommend WGU to everyone who is looking... Read More
