WGU Washington, in cooperation with NWESD 189, is proud to offer several benefits to NWESD 189 employees.
As an online, nonprofit, competency-based university, WGU Washington offers regionally accredited degree programs in business, information technology, teacher education, and health professions (including nursing).
WGU is a nonprofit online university. What does this mean for you? Very affordable tuition. In fact, WGU is half the cost of other online universities.
While our low, flat-rate tuition is designed to make a college degree affordable, there are times responsible borrowing is still a good choice. WGU is approved to offer federal financial aid to those who qualify.
WGU also maintains a robust scholarship program through the generosity of corporations, foundations, and special government appropriations. Visit the scholarship page to see a current list of open scholarships.
WGU’s rigorous, competency-based approach is ideally suited to self-directed learners ready to earn a degree and advance their career. Unlike traditional and other online universities, WGU doesn’t award degrees based on seat time. Instead, you earn your degree by demonstrating your competence in your field. Through independent study and the use of learning resources, you master the essential skills and knowledge necessary for success.
If your schedule demands flexibility, WGU Washington is for you. In most cases, you will access course material or study independently at the time and place you choose. You can progress at a pace that enables you to earn a college degree while managing your career, your family, and life’s other challenges. Our competency-based approach to education allows for extensive personalization of your program to fit around your busy schedule.
When you become a student, you’ll study under the guidance of a dedicated Student Mentor who will work with and support you from enrollment through graduation. Together with your mentor you’ll develop your personalized Degree Plana roadmap and schedule for successfully completing your program.
