" Amazing school!! I started this degree in 2019 and finished in 2021. This school is incredible. Doing as many classes as I want in a 6 month time span has given me the ability to go as fast or as slow as I want, and take breaks when I need them. The certifications they give you are invaluable and will look incredible on your resume. I wish I enrolled when they started including CySA+ and Pentest+ in my curriculum "

" I love WGU because you can go at your own pace and complete classes quicker if you already know the information. You receive a counselor that checks up on your every couple of weeks to ensure that you’re still motivated to finish. When you’re enrolled in a class you have more than one instructor to reach out to and set a meeting up with so you don’t have to wait on your personal instructor and keep progressing with your course.

" Overall, this is a great option for those with experience and still need to continue to work. There was great support and you go at your own pace. Of course, one must be a bit more disciplined and self motivated. "

" Great online university for traditional or mature students. Go at your own pace. Each semester is 6 months and you can take as many classes as you can pass during a semester. You have an assigned program mentor that helps you with questions and plans your courses. Each course has an instructor that will be available to help you with your needs as you work through each course. "

" This school fits my style of learning on my own pace. I enjoy the freedom and flexibility to work full time while being a full time student. The academic mentors are consistent and encouraging which helps when in a slump. The tuition is affordable and material covered is applicable to the field I'm in. "
