WGU Tennessee offers degrees, not classes. As a competency-based online university, progress through your degree program is determined by demonstrating your competence through carefully designed assessments and completion of a professional portfolio, capstone, or both. As a student in this program, you will complete the courses listed below in order to graduate. These courses are required. Each course contains a study guide and recommended learning resources for you to use. Your assigned mentor will help guide you through the process.
For ease of understanding, WGU Tennessee has assigned competency units to each of its courses as indicated below. A competency unit is equivalent to a semester credit hour of learning. WGU Tennessee terms are six months in length. During a typical term, students will be expected to complete at least 8 to 9 competency units. Grades are assigned on a Pass/Not Pass basis; a “Pass” at WGU Tennessee is equivalent to a letter grade of “B" or better.
