WGU was built from the ground up with adult learners like you in mind. Our 19 founding governors designed WGU so that you won’t have to choose between work, family, and school. Nor will you have to forgo your dreams of a degree and career advancement because of cost.

You’re in control of your education. In general, there are no class schedules to "fit in", no high-priced tuition to strain your wallet. You’ll get a first-rate education online with superior programs, low tuition, and unmatched personal attention and support. With programs starting the first of every month, your future can start right now.

The principal mission of Western Governors University is to improve quality and expand access to post-secondary educational opportunities by providing a means for individuals to learn independent of time and place and to earn competency-based degrees and other credentials that are credible to both academic institutions and employers.

Western Governors University is an online university driven by a mission to expand access to higher education through online, competency-based degree programs. WGU has flourished into a national university, serving more than 30,000 students from all 50 states.

Each degree program is developed by a council of experts in the field who define "competencies" students need to possess to graduate. These competencies form the curriculum. This combination of expertise in both industry knowledge and academics guarantees your degree will be relevant in your chosen field.

You earn your degree through demonstration of skills and knowledge in required subject areas through a series of carefully designed assessments. You’ll take tests, write papers, and complete assignments. But rather than focus on seat time or credit hours, we make sure you graduate as a highly competent professional.

When you graduate, your diploma will mean you’ve mastered the essential skills and knowledge the workplace demands.

Western Governors University is nationally accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). WGU is also regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, one of the major accrediting commissions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
