Connecting you to other WGU students
As a WGU Washington student, you will have access to two kinds of online student communities: learning communities and program communities. Each of these communities provides you with a different level of support and gives you the opportunity to interact with mentors and other students.
Program communities are focused on building relationships between students and mentors. You can connect with fellow students and mentors on all things about your degree program. Primarily, program communities focus on:
- Expanding your knowledge in your overall field of study
- Industry research and current events
- Networking between students and mentors
You will be assigned and automatically enrolled into learning communities that correspond with the assessments for your term. These communities provide a virtual space in which subject-specific information can be obtained to develop competency. The learning communities focus on:
- Development of competence
- Small group learning sessions that support cooperative learning
- Academic help
Note: Learning communities are not designed to be used for obtaining answers for specific questions on objective assessments or performance tasks.
