Degree: Cybersecurity

I chose WGU because I needed a degree quickly after I got some bad medical news and was told I'd be medically retired soon. I work in cyber for the military so I have gotten training and have a handful of certifications. WGU was largely based around CISSP with a class about CEH and one about CHFI. They've recently updated the curriculum. I loved how WGU works. My mentor was hands off after I finished 4 courses in a month, but was always on-call when I was ready to start my next course. The mentors... Read More

First of all, please read the other 4 reviews on this page. Both negative and positive have good points (except, "WGU Student"). The concept behind WGU is excellent and there are some good Bachelor programs there. Once you get to the Masters level, things tend to decline. As some mention, you need to be self-motivated. What this really means is: there is a lot of information missing or incorrect in the assignments. FAR beyond motivation, you have to search Reddit for clues, push the instructors to... Read More

This school is more focused on students writing papers than them actually learning the material. You spend more time trying to write papers and making sure that you actually pass the grade without understanding anything. I absolutely hated my experience.

I completed my bachelors program through WGU in late 2017, early 2018. I had small gripes here and there about how the college worked but felt my bachelors experience was generally positive overall. I cannot say that for my Masters Degree experience which resulted in me leaving the program 10 days in for the reasons below: 1. The intake process consists of you meeting with a counselor who discusses aspects of the degree you're interested in, telling you about the program courses, financial aid and... Read More

This school is meant for people who are extremely self-motivated. If you expect that the school will spoon feed you, you will be very disappointed. Each course is like a big puzzle and, if you can crack it, you will love the courses. I start every course with great fear that I may not be able to complete it but, after making progress by going through all their helping guides and course materials, I will feel little confident and once the course is through, I get all my energy back to start the next...

I recently graduated from WGU. My overall experience was great. This is one of the best online school that offered quality education with affordable tuition. Being a IT professional, I found their degree programs are very competitive and allighn with real life/project situation. The information I learnt in his program helped me immensely In solving issues. So program met the quality standard. However, this program is not suited for all individual. This program is definitely for the one who are self... Read More

I love my WGU, and I support the idea of online competency-based education. I have more than 20 years of exp, and I did not want to learn what is IP address, if you are like me then this school is for you. If you are motivated and have the computer with high-speed internet at home and ready to take challenges, go for WGU. I am graduating this year MS (CSIA) and I love it. I am going to finish my term in about 3 months.
