WGU student portal – www.wgu.edu login

 

Back in 1995 a meeting was held by the Western Governors Association to develop a sustainable e-learning model for tertiary education.

The outcome of this meeting would lead to the establishment of Western Governors University (WGU) in 1997.

WGU is an accredited online, e-learning university with its headquarters located in Salt Lake City, Utah. WGU is also a privately owned, nonprofit internet-based university.
