    I'm an LVN in Santa Clarita, currently studying for my TEAS exam. I have 1 more class that needs to be completed, Human Growth and Development. After reading all of these comments I'm worried. I'm planning to apply for the August cohort. I hope the program isn't cancelled. My friend from high school is a teacher at WGU. She teaches one of the science classes in the nursing program, not sure which one. I'll ask her if she knows anything.

    From what I can tell based on my own personal research into the current situation of WGU, August "shouldn't" be affected and should continue as normal - this is also what WGU has told applicants. That being said, there were several students, myself included, that were admitted, offered a seat, and accepted our seat for the April cohort, which has now been postponed. April cohort may or may not be rescheduled. If it's not rescheduled, I, along with my admissions advisor and (from what my advisor told me) all of the other admissions advisors think it's only fair that we (those of us who had already accepted our seat in April), get the next seats in the next cohort, which would be August. So, if April is cancelled and those of us admitted to Apeil are rolled into August, those originally applying to August may have a difficult time because there may only be a couple, if any seats left, meaning you may have to reapply for October.

    My personal belief at this point, again based on personal research I have done into the matter, is that April will probably be rescheduled for June or July, and August will continue as normal. That is completely my belief though based on personal research and is not based on what WGU has told me. The only thing WGU has said is they are hoping April is rescheduled and not cancelled, but that's the most they've said at this point.

    That all being said, I highly doubt there will be any updates from WGU until late April or early May regarding the status of the April or August cohort.

    Has anyone heard any updated information on when the California cohorts will resume?

    Last week, the Board of Registered Nursing voted to deny WGU's enrollment increase request, which is what supposedly caused these delays with the April cohort. What the denial means for the reschedule/cancellation of April and if it has any impact on August, who knows. I haven't been given any updates for over two months after they rescinded my admission for the April cohort due to the delays.

    It is unfortunate that there has been no further communication. They are going to lose students to other programs. I am having a hard time turning down admission to an established program in my area when I have no idea what is going on with WGU. I really hope they communicate something definitive soon.
