WGU Missouri is authorized to offer federal financial aid to qualified students, which can help you manage the costs of higher education. Most students qualify for at least one type of low-interest loan.
Established by the state of Missouri through a partnership with Western Governors University, WGU Missouri’s commitment is to expand access to higher education for Missouri working adults. And through that commitment to expand access, Missouri residents can receive the education they need to improve their lives and the economic well-being of the state.
As a nonprofit university, WGU 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.
