Return on Investment

A WGU Texas degree delivers superior results—it means you’ve demonstrated mastery of real-world competencies that employers are looking for. As a result, WGU Texas grads frequently get jobs that more than pay for their education.

In fact, in a 2013 survey, graduates who had earned their degree from WGU between 2010 and 2012 reported an average increase in salary of $9,000 compared with their income prior to enrollment!

Reducing Student Debt by 29%

WGU's Responsible Borrowing Initiative encourages students to borrow only what they need to complete their degrees. Since its launch in 2013, average borrowing per student (of those who take out loans) has decreased by $2,500 per year, a reduction of 29%. In one year, WGU students reduced borrowing by $125 million.


Many WGU students receive scholarships and grants that make earning their degrees even more affordable.

During the past three years, WGU has awarded over $5 million in scholarships using the university's own funds as well as third-party contributions.

Questions and Answers

Select a question from the left, see the answer to the right.

How does WGU Texas keep its tuition so low?

As a nonprofit university, WGU Texas doesn’t need to benefit shareholders. Our students are our main concern. We also try to keep our operating costs low. And since we’re an exclusively online university, we don’t need to maintain expensive classroom buildings, a campus, and other non-academic programs.

Should I consider financial aid?

Using financial aid is a personal decision. When making this decision, you should know that a degree is a great investment in yourself that will pay for itself many times over. Individuals with a bachelor’s degree earn on average almost a million dollars more over the course their careers compared to those without one. A master’s degree typically has a similar impact on your wallet. You should definitely consider federal financial aid if it means the difference between getting your degree or not.
