About Western Governor's University
As the nation's only online, competency-based university, WGU focuses on developing a highly competent graduate, not just someone who has accumulated credit hours. In fact, WGU does not award degrees based on credit hours or required courses. Your progress is determined by your ability to pass rigorous assessments—typically test, projects and a portfolio—that measure your knowledge and skills as you move through your degree program.
Western Governors University is the only university to have received simultaneous accreditation by four regional accrediting commissions.
Currently, WGU's "home" accrediting commission is the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the same organization that accredits such leading institutions as the University of Washington, University of Oregon, University of Utah, BYU, and other public and private colleges. WGU is also nationally accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).
