WGU remains a competency-based university. That has not and will not change. 'Pass' is considered a 'B' equivalent- and there are literally hundreds of schools accepting WGU degrees for further study. I was accepted into three well-known accredited doctoral programs with my WGU MSN. 

Over 200k grads and 120k current students.

Congratulations!! Can I share what the out of pocket cost was for you?  The ambiguity about pay as you go is a little unsettling.  Thank you!!

I'm not sure what you mean by ambiguity and pay as you go.

WGU has 'flat rate' tuition, in other words you pay $x-amount for a six month term. If you complete the courses in that term early and want to accelerate your progress through the program by bringing future courses into that term- you pay no additional tuition. 

Example: I was assigned 4 courses (12 credits) in my first term of RN-to-BSN. I finished those four courses in the first three months of my six month term. So I completed four MORE courses in the remaining three months (23 credits total) but paid ZERO additional tuition for those accelerated courses. 

I hope this answers your question.

You pay by term. The term is every 6 months. Whatever classes u can complete in 6 months is what determines your total cost. The terms were around $3,000 or less when I went thru the program. Hope this helps.
