Transferring to Western Governors University

Logo for WGUWestern Governors University is a non-profit, online University with competency-based education. Simply put, it measures skills and learning rather than time. Students progress through courses as soon as they can prove they’ve mastered the material, rather than advancing only when the semester or term ends. If a student can learn faster, spend more time on schoolwork, or lean on knowledge they already have from previous work or school experience, they can accelerate. WGU has degrees in Business, Teaching, Information Technology, Nursing, and Healthcare.
