Anyone with a WGU Bachelor's go to Master's somewhere else?

I'm looking at finishing my Bachelor's and since I'm self studying for certs anyway, WGU seems almost perfect for me. But my question is this... on ITT's commercials, in small print, it says their credits may not transfer to other colleges. I'm assuming this is due to them being nationally and not regionally accredited.

Has anyone's WGU Bachelor's degree been accepted into a different, traditional school's Master's program? Or would I be stuck taking a WGU Master's only by completing their Bachelor's?

    I've found that most schools masters programs are pretty flexible. Even if you don't meet there requirements, they normally don't have the master programs filled and you can get in. For example you can use strong certs, and a high GRE score to make up for a lower GPA.

    You should take a look at some of the schools are you interested in and give them a call and talk to them about it.

    WGU is nationally and regionally accredited, for what it's worth.

    I'd look at some masters programs you're interested in and contact those schools to see what they have to say about it.

    You shouldn't have a problem with anyone accepting a WGU degree when going to a masters program. Most of the problems I read about are with nationally accredited only schools, and even then if you shop around you can probably find a regional school that would accept it.
