Online College or Diploma Mill?

Have ever heard of Western Governors University? It's an all online non-profit college. And, if so, then any opinions would be great. ~

Dear Christine,

I haven't heard of it before. For an all-online college, I would lean heavily on a college with a reputable brick-and-mortar presence (like Thomas Jefferson, Regent University in Virginia, etc) or a college that comes highly recommended by CollegePlus!  There is a risk of stumbling upon a diploma mill otherwise, which can cause long term consequences.

Western Governors University is legit! They are the only online college that is able to offer teacher's licensure NCATE approved! It was started by 19 governors of western states and their program is competency based rather than grade based. They are approved for military and VA tuition benefits as well as Federal Aid.

After I complete my degree at Liberty University I am going to switch to WGU for my Masters and get my teaching license through them. I can student teach wherever my husband is stationed and get the training I need.

Hope this helps!
