I completed by BA in education in 2006. My diploma and the degree stated it was PreK-8th grade. They recently changed this, however, the school will not back it's word on the PreK-8th grade degree I received. This is false advertising and I believe that a law suit is necessary. I have contacted the school numerous times and no one is willing to help. When you state a degree is PreK-8th grade and then a state asked for the form to be signed stating this, it is an obligation of the university to follow through. I am truly disappointed in the university and I wish I would have attended elsewhere. Please make sure that you check with your state certification office before beginning at WGU. A university should not have this issue. I hope this helps someone out there and I hope to go through my legal counsel available through my school to fix this issue. I should not have to spend my time and energy fixing issues that are not handled with integrity by a university.

Terrible place to work!
The University keeps track of the students progress. Student Mentors are under pressure to have their students complete their degrees, no matter what happens to the students. The university doesn't differentiate the reasons students drop or fail to make On Time Progress. Of the six mentors I started with, four of us were fired, one quit and the other is looking for work elsewhere. The upper management only cares about the numbers. Students are only numbers. Reports are called pipelines and again only the numbers are important. Their advertisements boast that you can complete your degree at your own pace. That is only true if you work at a fast pace.
