At WGU North Carolina, we put students at the center of their education. Students are measured by the knowledge they possess, not by how many hours they spend in class. Through competency-based learning, students can move quickly through material they already know so they can focus on what they still need to learn. They can study on their own schedule, not someone else’s. They get one-on-one support from faculty mentors, from day one until graduation.
And while other universities can cost tens of thousands of dollars a year, WGU is surprisingly affordable—typically half the tuition of many online universities, no matter how many courses a student takes. Online, nonprofit, and accredited, WGU offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education, health professions, information technology, and business—degrees that are respected by employers everywhere.
