Western Governors University Questions and Answers / Threads related to WGU
It will depend on the college you'll be doing your Masters at. Since WGU is a pass/fail, your GPA at graduation will be a flat 3.0.
WGU does keep a list of places their alumni have transferred to for Masters programs.

What online tools, libraries, and services are made available to WGU students and alumni? Is access to commercial services, such as Pluralsight, Grammarly, and Office 365, licensed to WGU students?

Just off the top of my head, some the resources you have access to:
Office 365 subscription
CBT Nuggets (some classes)
Boson labs and practice tests (some classes)
OnTheHub access to copies of Windows, VMWare, Norton, etc...
Having a .edu email anywhere also gets you:
Amazon Prime student

Looking at re-enrolling in April to begin my Masters in their Data Analytics program. Anyone have experience going through this degree and can shed some of the pros/cons?

As an alumni, there are various resources available if you are no longer a student. They are listed here:
For IT training, I use Skillport and Pluralsight. You also get Lynda, but I don't use that.
Master of Business Administration in Information Technology Management - Western Governors University
Master of Science in Information Security and Assurance - Western Governors University
Bachelor of Science in Network Administration - Western Governors University
Associate of Applied Science x4 - Heald College
I am looking to pursue Bachelor's in IT Management from WGU but not sure if this style of college is right for me.
I work 40 hours, have a family (new born on the way too). I know the whole premise is to cram as many classes in as you can during a term. Is there a certain expectation the school wants for how many classes taken in a term? I am curious what the workload is like though and average length for a class. Is it actually online classes with a lecture done by a teacher? Are you just reading books and watching videos? And then when you are comfortable with the content you try to test out of it?
