Western Governors University

WGU LogoWGU does things a bit differently. 

Tuition: Undergraduate programs tuition $3,475-$3,950 for each 6-month term for as many classes as a student can earn. 

When transferring an associate degree from Northern most complete their bachelor’s degree in 12 months or less. 

Scholarships: As a Northern graduate, you are eligible to apply for the $2,500 Community College Partner Scholarship

Working full-time shouldn't keep you from earning a valuable degree. In fact, in 2020, 70% of our enrolled students worked full-time. Here's how WGU makes it possible: 

  • flexible schedule means you don't have to log in to class at a certain time, allowing you to maintain your current work schedule.  Enroll when you are ready, as WGU starts the first of every month
  • Flexibility also means you can be a full-time student and a full-time employee. You shouldn't have to choose between meeting your financial needs and investing in yourself. We make it possible for you to keep working and earning money while earning your degree.
  • Competency-based education means you can use experience and knowledge from your current job to advance through material you know, letting you graduate more quickly.
  • Since you're working full-time, it's easy to apply what you're learning in your courses to your daily work. Use the new skills you acquire right away instead of waiting until you graduate.
  • Program Mentors listen to and understand your needs to help you balance work and school and stay on track to graduate in a timely manner.
