The "required" mentoring can be annoying for those of us adults that are going back to school. They are timed, so if you have not completed the readings you are likely not to do well.
The practical process for the database courses I found to be confusing and the Java class practical is a bit much for an entry level Java class.
There is no coddling; you must be self-motivated and complete the assignments given to you on your own. The certifications can allow someone still working on the degree to gain valuable skills and credentials to possibly land a job before even getting their degree.
For those with IT experience we can get around these things but others in the degree program may not know where to look and WGU needs to do a better job of laying this information out. Good writing breaks these rules all the time, and following all the rules does little if anything to make bad writing good.
You earn valuable industry standard certifications along the way which are part of your tuition and the degree you get is accredited. The professors are helpful and will be happy to create tailored lesson plans to help you if you are having trouble, BUT you must let them know of your difficulty with the course.
The prices are competitive, the education is top-notch, and truly opens doors for you, both in and out of the military. Certainly not, but I have attended 3 brick and mortar colleges and they all had their issues too Yes - No 9 of 16 people found the following review helpful 1 AMU provides all the books for your education; you will not have to fork out extra money to get an affordable used textbook.
Language is amazing; no other animal has the capacity for expression that we do. Most American military personnel swear by AMU, and for good reason. I once had a friend who was apparently afraid to talk to me because she thought I was silently correcting everything she said.
You will be hard pressed to find a better collection of professors offering the education they do for such a low price. It is an excellent school, but you will NOT skate by. There is way more good about WGU than bad in my opinion. 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.
Professors are all very well-educated, and most have considerable real-world experience.
But I worried that this was how people saw me:I didn’t want to write about Kevin Williamson. I even emailed Kemberlee and Mary earlier this evening and told them I “don’t feel like writing about Kevin Williamson.” If you don’t know.
