I am a current adult student at WGU, and remember visiting this site to check out reviews as I was enrolling. I have to say that my experience has been far better than I could have ever imagined- especially for the price. Much of what is said in these reviews are accurate and there is some truth to some of the complaints as well. However, for 7k a year and the option to study at my own pace, I can't think of a better value. The courses ARE challenging, and no matter how self-disciplined you think you are, it will take a couple of months to settle in and get adjusted. Be patient, work with your mentor and enjoy a great educational experience. My biggest gripe is with the Financial Aid department. They are slow, disorganized and uncommunicative. My advice is to allow a couple of months and a lot of back and forth before you get your award. And, be prepared to call them on a regular basis to make sure they are doing their job. But, to their credit, they are generous with their awards, even if it takes 6 weeks to get any excess funds sent out if it's your first term. Other than that, this has been an amazing experience, and if you think you have what it takes to get a degree online, this seems to be worth the money in my opinion.
