Affordable Degree Programs
Pay by Term, Not by Credit Hour
Unlike schools that charge tuition based on credit hours, WGU Texas focuses on the time needed to complete your entire degree rather than each course individually. WGU Texas' six-month terms are billed at a flat-rate tuition fee
Most WGU Texas degree programs allow new students to begin their term on the first day of each month. Unlike traditional semesters, WGU Texas terms are six months long and based on your program start date.
