Degree: Special Education

Most disappointing experience in education I have ever experienced. More than 90 days after being accepted and completing orientation I am still waiting to begin classes and have my financial aid released. Save yourself the headache and go to a real university. The degree on the wall will be worth much more. UPDATE: After 3 months of promises and jumping through hoops WGU dismissed me from my program. Ironically, with 5 Master's degrees under my belt, all from Tier-Level universities, I find WGU... Read More

I liked the classes but am having a hard time getting my special ed. Credential. Honestly the Masters degree is worthless if I cant get a credential in my home state. The credential process they advertise is not what they tell you after you graduate.

WGU is an amazing price and a great program. I was challenged and able to work at my pace to complete my degree. The course mentors and student mentors work very hard to help you achieve your goals. The program was rigorous but worth the effort, I was able to pass all state assessments and course work requirements for my teaching endorsements.

I am seeing about transferring credits now!

I really wanted to focus on special education, but since I wasn't already licensed, I couldn't enroll in the MA special education program. I decided to get my bachelor's in special education at WGU. I am highly qualified to teach in my county. There is some inclusion, but most of the special education content was limited. It was more about general education and then self-study to complete the praxis content area in the... Read More
