WGU Texas Offers a Flexible On-line Degree Program in the Basin

The non-profit, online, fully accredited, flexible, competency based university is geared toward working Texans who want to complete their college degree or earn a masters and ultimately earn more earning power.
MIDLAND -- Too busy to go back to school and need a more flexible degree program? WGU might have just be the option for you. The non-profit, online, fully accredited, flexible, competency based university is geared toward working Texans who want to complete their college degree or earn a masters and ultimately earn more earning power. At WGU, an online university, you earn your degree based on what you’ve learned, not how long you’ve spent in a classroom. It's called competency-based education; meaning you can move quickly through what you already know so you can focus on what you need to learn.

WGU Texas received a 3-year $500,000 grant to support WGU Texas's growth in the Permian Basin region of Midland Odessa. As you know the oil boom in the Midland-Odessa area has lead to the fastest growing areas in the U.S.. This economic growth creates a big need for more teachers, more nurses, and more business and IT professionals to support that growth.

WGU Texas is a flexible option for adults who haven't earned their degrees to go back to school online and get credentialed with a degree in one of these high-demand areas. It's affordable, flexible, even mobile. And in a region like Midland-Odessa with only about 3% unemployment, WGU Texas is a great option for people who could move up the ladder with a degree, but need the flexibility of an online education because they're already at work.
