Governors University Promise Statement
We help our students achieve their dreams for a degree and
career success by providing a personal, flexible, and affordable
education based on real world competencies.
University Mission Statement
The principal mission of Western Governors University is to
improve quality and expand access to post-secondary educational
opportunities by providing a means for individuals to learn
independent of time or place and to earn competency-based
degrees and other credentials that are credible to both academic
institutions and employers.
Governors University Advantage
You know how important a college degree is to you. But you
lead a busy life. How can you fit college into a schedule
that already includes work and family?
Western Governors University is specifically designed to help
adults like you fit college into your already busy lives.
WGU's programs are delivered online to allow learning to occur
more on your schedule. Working with a faculty mentor on a
regular basis, you'll follow a personalized Academic Action
Plan that builds upon what you already know in the field.
You may be able to accelerate your degree depending upon the
competencies you already possess and still juggle the demands
of school, work, and family.
