A university based on competency, not hours.


Western Governors University is the brainchild of a group of governors of western states. Every month, a new term begins with flat-rate pricing whether you take one class or five. You can earn credit by proving mastery, which might not take you six months. Finish your class, then sign up for the next one. 15,000 students have graduated since 2000, including a blogger who earned a B.S. in Business Management in less than ten months. If you’re shopping for an online degree in business, education, IT, or healthcare, WGU is certainly worth investigating.

Crib Notes: If you don’t need a brand name diploma, this is a great way to crank out a bunch of credits, fast.
