I’m applying to another university for a graduate or terminal degree program. What should I expect; will they accept my WGU degree?

Officially, you should read this.
For your curiosity (and our bragging rights), we share a list of secondary universities who we know have accepted WGU grads.
Note: WGU graduates have self-reported being accepted to this list of universities for their continued education. Share yours if it's not represented!

Need Placement File Service for Education?

Most school districts no longer require university placement files and have an online application process in place that allows applicants to upload their own files. However, WGU offers placement file services to students and graduates from the Teachers College if a school district specifically requests a placement file be sent directly from the applicant’s university. For more information on this service, please visit or contact the WGU Records Department at
