I found Western Governors University to be an excellent experience. I just earned my BS in Finance last month and learned more than I ever thought possible. I have attended other traditional schools and found the teachers at Western Governors to be in almost every case more easily accessible and knowledgeable as at the other Universities I attended.
Furthermore, TASKSTREAM which is used by Western Governor as the sight which you submit all assignments and then who grades them is not unique to Western Governors.
TASKSTREAM is also used by schools such as the University of Vermont, University of Illinois and GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY. Anyone who knows anything knows that George Mason offers an excellent education!
It should also be noted that schools such as George Washington University now offer completely online degrees that are highly respected. Because of Western Governors affiliation with the Western Governors association along with outstanding education, I see a bright and respected future for this University. I should also mention that I have had absolutely NO problem getting into an excellent ABA Law School with my WGU degree.
For those of you complaining, I hope you will at least do a little more research on what you’re complaining about before posting “ambiguous reviews” on this website. Overall, Western Governors is a great school and anyone who can use a computer and has some motivation will complete their program with an average amount of difficulty which should be expected when earning your degree. I was able to complete mine in 10 months and 7 days without transferring any previous credits at about 20 hours per week.
Now, if you are looking for a free handout as it sounds that some of you are, this is not the school for you. I suggest you instead sign up for one of those un-accredited universities that will print you a fake degree for a fee, otherwise, pull up your pants, use your brain and act like a grown up before attempting a college that was designed for real grown-ups.
