Client Testimonials

[I am very interested in the fact that 77%] of WGU graduates strongly agree that their education was worth the cost. What we hear a lot from our members—all 310,000 of them—is that, ultimately, they were not convinced that [their college experience] was worth the cost. So I’m shocked to see three in four graduates of any institution who say it was worth it.

The tailored offerings and unified approach to continuing education WGU has had with the Capital Division’s Centers For Clinical Advancement has opened possibilities for countless learners.

– Brent Marlowe, Vice President of Clinical Education, HCA Healthcare Capital Division

I am usually not a risk-taker, but WGU had made me realize that I could do bigger things I could not imagine. Western Governors University taught me to be more responsible, to balance career and social life, and develop my skills by pushing me to my limits. It showed me my potential and removed fear from the equation.
