Saylor Partners with Western Governors University

Originally published at:

Western Governors University, a nonprofit university offering convenient, flexible and affordable education online, and Saylor Academy have established a credit transfer agreement whereby select Saylor Academy courses, passed with a proctored exam, will satisfy corresponding competency equivalencies in several WGU degree programs across multiple disciplines.

For several of these degree programs, students can transfer more than a full year of tuition-free college credits from Saylor Academy that align to WGU’s award winning “competency based education” degree model. The program also applies to each of WGU’s state partnership universities: WGU Tennessee, WGU Nevada, WGU Indiana, WGU Missouri, WGU Washington & WGU Texas.

WGU’s page is linked from there and goes into much more detail re: courses/programs:

Well, you’ve helped me discover the downside of using relative links (/partner-schools/...) in posts that get sent over to Discourse verbatim.

Hi @sean ,

I see that you fixed every link now. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Let me take this opportunity to add the following remark (not for you, Sean, but for others that may be reading this topic): my messages in this topic may have given the impression that I have some affiliation with WGU (Western Governors University), but that’s NOT the case. Both Degrees that I completed were in Portuguese Universities.
