You can sign up to use your mobile number for WGU password recovery requests within your WGU Portal. The following article gives step-by-step instructions on how to setup this functionality. A tour of this feature is available when you click the "Take A Tour" button found by "Text Messaging" within step 3 below.
Note: You may limit the amount of texts you receive within an one month period. To enable, click "Advanced Settings" under "Text Messaging" and click the button stating you would like to limit the SMS notification from WGU and then enter the number of texts you will receive within a one month period. Once this limit is reached, you will have to get WGU notifications by other methods. If no number is entered in this field, the number of text messages sent from WGU will not be restricted.
