Hard to get a department scholarshop
I will recommend WGU because it's very flexible to study at this university.
Be ready to study much and uninterrupted.
Great study resources
I love that Western Governors University is online and available for me whenever I have the time. I can complete and do my classes on my own time. I work my schooling around my work and social life so I don't have to give anything up.
The current proctor system they use is really bad. It is difficult to work with and does not always work, but they are working towards finding and using a different proctor system for the exams.
Western Governors University enables students to experience a round-robin environment for a career. I am in the Cybersecurity and Information Assurance program, so I can learn from multiple resources, practice, and become certified within that particular aspect. The voucher for certification is free with tuition (up to two attempts), and all the certifications are industry standards that apply to requirements across jobs within the IT industry. The icing on the cake, WGU, is flat tuition, a self-paced online school. This feature encourages accelerating the time to degree completion, depending on the student's lifestyle and efforts. I started on Feb 1st, and I'm already starting my second term out of four. I would recommend this school to anyone, especially those within the Information Technology industry.
I am thrilled with the Education program in which I can accelerate my studies. Accelerated courses keep my goal as a teacher closer than a traditional university.
