Overall the curriculum is challenging but those with IT experience will have a leg up and be able to breeze through some of the material which is nice.
The courses offered have a ton of curriculum which is delivered in a multitude of ways (videos, online books, quizzes, practice tests, flashcards, simulators, etc.).
Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.
WGU touts that it is a competency base learning program.
The students fail due to lack of adequate support in the content material and you get a four-year graduation rates of 7.3% and 14% graduation rate overall!
You won't get the help you need and they will just keep sending back your assignments saying that it is wrong with no explanation to why or how to fix it.
You take the test, pass, and move on to the next class.
This means that if you already have the knowledge base through prior experience great!
WGU fit the bill and after considerable investigation into them I decided to start their IT Security degree.
I looked for about a year at various options to finish my 4 year degree and ultimately wanted something online that was flexible and reasonably priced.
