I have a B.S. and an Advanced Degree. I called the Western Governors University wanting information about securing an IT degree. Because my degree was older and I did not have the needed IT work experience, I do not qualify for admission in their IT degree program. The admissions lady was helpful, told me to go get one of the certificates that I would earn during the course work, then apply. That was the good part. I get calls several times a week to please call to talk to the admissions person so I "can get started with my WGU education" and of course a series of Emails touting the school and encouraging me to take action. (Yes, I called and left messages and emails asking them to cease the endless emails and after about a month, now I just get the emails.) Do not really know about the school except even though they would not admit me (a good thing I believe) they continue to harass me (Their choice that I am not part of this session, but they do not seem to communicate with those saying come on down and those saying not so fast my friend).
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
