How smart do you have to be to finish an IT, software dev, or cs degree at WGU?
#1
How smart is the average WGU student? Are there people who are not so smart who still finish?

I believe smart people are made, you aren't born with smart traits.

https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2...-not-born/

There is a YouTuber who didn't make it past the 10th grade. Well, it's over for him, right? He will be stuck doing menial jobs such as flipping burgers, right?

Well, this person decided to go to WGU college and did a computer science degree in just two months. Then went on to do a master's degree in less than a month. Now earns six figures working jobs such as for Microsoft.

What does it take to be successful? The right attitude, discipline, and knowing how to find the most helpful information.

Today colleges will give out A's like candy and will pass anyone as long as they do the work. That's the easy part. As long as you transfer in near the max credits, your chances of making it should be very high.

There are many stories, where students who have a disability finishing a degree along with their parents or siblings. The average person should be able to similar to what an average WGU student can do. WGU goes by assessments and assignments, if the student isn't getting through the assessments, they have mentors to help each student and follow up. I like WGU degree offerings and how they do things, they've nearly perfected the CBE system and they're the largest and oldest as they're the "granddaddy" to CBE. As mentioned, if you put in the effort, you will be rewarded... just don't stall or sulk when something happens, move forward...
