WGU Washington is competency-based

WGU’s rigorous, competency-based approach is ideally suited to self-directed learners anxious to advance their education and careers efficiently. Unlike traditional and even other online universities, WGU Washington doesn’t award degrees based on seat time or on a certain number of required courses. Instead, you earn your degree by demonstrating your competence in your field. Through independent study, learning resources, and carefully designed assessments, you learn and master essential skills and knowledge necessary for success. Assessments take the form of essays, exams, research papers, and an assortment of projects that can be completed online.

Our competency-based approach measures your progress by successful completion of challenging assessments. If you have existing competencies from prior work and education, you may be able to draw upon this experience to complete your assessments faster and accelerate your degree program.

WGU Washington is flexible and supportive

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 mentor who will work with and support you from enrollment to graduation. Together with your mentor, you’ll develop your personalized Degree Plan—a roadmap and schedule for successfully completing your program.

As a WGU Washington student, you’ll also have access to student communities designed to give you the communication and connectivity you need to be successful in your degree program. These communities offer you support and the opportunity to interact with mentors and other students.
