The problem I encountered with WGU was a lack of consistency. The grading of tasks are done at the whims of the person who happens to get your work. There is an inconsistency in the grading and in the directions themselves at times. The directions, materials, and rubric can have conflicting information. This is a huge problem and the result is unfair practices and outcomes for the student. I wasted a lot of time and money here. The other problem is a lack of ability to transfer credits. If your talking about transfer of credits to WGU, no problem. I think they are generous. The problem is getting a school to accept WGU competency units which technically don't carry a grade. Apart from these serious problems, I might recommend WGU because it can work well for someone that needs the flexibility and affordability it offers.
