"The university offers students access to higher education wherever they are, whenever they need it, at a price they can afford."
Major General (Ret.) Timothy J. Lowenberg
of employers said that their WGU graduates were prepared for their jobs
A WGU degree delivers superior results—it means you’ve demonstrated mastery of real-world competencies that employers are looking for. As a result, WGU grads frequently get jobs that more than pay for their education.
In a 2015 Harris Poll Online survey, 1,144 WGU graduates reported earning, on average, $10,600 more within 1–2 years of graduation. With an average cost of $15,000 for a bachelor’s degree, the return on investment of a WGU degree is less than 2 years.
WGU’s Responsible Borrowing Initiative encourages students to borrow only what they need to complete their degrees. Since its launch in 2013, average borrowing per student (of those who take out loans) has decreased by $3,100 per year, a reduction of 40%. In two years, WGU reduced borrowing by $250 million.
Many WGU students receive scholarships and grants that make earning their degrees even more affordable.
During the past three years, WGU has awarded over $5 million in scholarships using the university's own funds as well as third-party contributions.

As a nonprofit university, WGU doesn’t need to benefit shareholders. Our students are our main concern. We also try to keep our operating costs low. And since we’re an exclusively online university, we don’t need to maintain expensive classroom buildings, a campus, and other non-academic programs.
Using financial aid is a personal decision. When making this decision, you should know that a degree is a great investment in yourself that will pay for itself many times over. Individuals with a bachelor’s degree earn on average almost a million dollars more over the course their careers compared to those without one. A master’s degree typically has a similar impact on your wallet. You should definitely consider federal financial aid if it means the difference between getting your degree or not. Speak to an
