Question and Answer
Select a question from the left, see the answer to the right.
How does WGU keep its tuition so low?
As a nonprofit university, WGU doesn t need to benefit shareholders. Our students are our main concern. We also try to keep our operating costs low. And since we re an exclusively online university, we don t need to maintain expensive classroom buildings, a campus, and other non-academic programs.
Should I consider financial aid?
Using financial aid is a personal decision. When making this decision, you should know that a degree is a great investment in yourself that will pay for itself many times over. Individuals with a bachelor s degree earn on average almost a million dollars more over the course their careers compared to those without one. A master s degree typically has a similar impact on your wallet. You should definitely consider federal financial aid if it means the difference between getting your degree or not.
