Stay away
Program: Business
Posted on December 26, 2008 by Rob

I attempted WGU because as a working adult, married with two children, learning online seemed to be the best alternative to a traditional school. After one year, I eventually withdrew. As I read in one review forum, WGU is a good idea executed poorly. They have a long way to go to be a University providing a high quality education. I recently transfered to a local University that has evening, weekend and online classes for working adults. I would suggest anyone looking to earn a degree, look for a local school that caters to working adults.

My suggestion is to stay away from WGU. It is not worth the money. The mentors do not help. The course work does not match the assessments. I found myself studying for an assessment only to find that what I studied 8 weeks for was not part of the test. And what tests were not proctored were easy "busy" work, most at a high school level. The tuition is low at WGU, but remember, you get what you pay for.

You are absolutely correct, my experience with the learning resources has been very similar to yours. In addition, the mentors I had did not keep their word on very important matters, in one instance resulting in my being screwed by WGU out of financial aid I needed. I have completely lost faith in the mentoring process and the program. WGU is a joke.

  WGU is a good idea implemented poorly.
The financial aid office is a joke/incompetent.
The Taskstream course work was too easy so instead of fixing the questions they gave the graders increased amounts of leeway in being subjective. This led to asking for extensive information that is not included in the initial question.
Rule for Taskstream, submit it the first time to find out what the graders are actually going to want. Because the questions listed are not usually it.
