About WGU North Carolina
WGU North Carolina was established in 2017 as a partnership between Western Governors University and the state of North Carolina with a unique mission to help individuals in North Carolina obtain a quality education. When WGU was established in 1997, the founding governors realized that technology, the internet, and a new model of competency-based education could transform higher education by creating new opportunities for working adults.
The mission of WGU North Carolina is to expand access to affordable higher education for North Carolina residents through online, competency-based programs that address key workforce needs. Western Governors University is available to learners across the country, and coursework is offered online so students do not have to go to a campus location. Students in North Carolina can recieve unique scholarship, financial aid, and other opportunities at WGU as a result of the partnership between WGU and the state of North Carolina.
