WGU In Your State

We’re expanding access to education, together.

At WGU, we are proud of our existing public-private partnership with your state. Together, we are creating pathways to opportunity by raising awareness of WGU’s student-centric learning model and increasing access to state financial aid.

A 2021 survey from Gallup proves what we’ve always believed: that our online, competency-based, student-centric approach to learning works.

$261 Billion

WGU’s more than 300,000 graduates will earn $463 billion over the course of their post graduation lives– $261 billion more than they would have otherwise.


WGU graduates earning their bachelor’s degrees at age 38 earn, on average, $826,000 more in their lifetimes than they would have without coming to WGU.

$1.03 Billion

WGU has saved its alumni more than $1 billion in tuition, freeing that money to go to other parts of the economy and giving graduates and their families a higher quality of life.
