To be admitted to a WGU Teacher’s College*, Health Professions College, College of Business, or College of Information Technology graduate programs, candidates for admission must submit an official transcript reflecting a regional or national baccalaureate degree indicating an accreditation recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) or a foreign degree equivalent to a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States with an evaluation by an accredited agency: NACES or AICE.
Candidates for admission into the educational leadership endorsement preparation program in WGU Teachers College must also submit an official transcript with a master’s degree posted to the transcript. Additionally, and where applicable, the candidate might have additional admission requirements, refer to the candidate’s college of interest Admissions Requirements page.
Official verification of a degree and any additional documentation requested must be received prior to the completion of a candidate’s intake interview for a candidate to be admitted for that term. Upon application to WGU, it is the student's obligation to immediately request an official transcript from the institution that awarded the degree. Occasionally, a two-week extension may be given in those instances in which degrees were not yet posted. Students who are given an extension, and fail to submit a transcript with a degree posted, will be administratively withdrawn from their current term.
