• Receive push notifications for updates on your assessments
• Gmail integration for quick access to your student email
• View your entire degree plan, including the courses you are enrolled in, those you have completed, and those remaining to complete your degree
• Access all your courses, including being able to view Course Announcements, Tips, and Assessments
• Pick up your course right where you left off in the Student Portal—your course progress is automatically synchronized between the two
• Easily locate contact information for your program mentor, course instructors, and WGU support departments
• Access helpful links to resources like the WGU Library, Student Support, and more

For the most part works fine but there are issues.


First, you can’t see your assessment scores with the official WGU iPhone app, but you can with the unofficial (PocketWGU) app.
More importantly though, there are times when you can’t load the course content at all for a given course from this app, and again, you can from the unofficial PocketWGU app.
For the most part, this app works as it should. But when it doesn’t work, it’s a big deal because it means you can’t study and that’s unacceptable.

Developer Response

Removing the assessment scores was a university-wide decision to help students focus on competency and not cut-scores.
When a course fails to load please email us the course code at so we can identify where the app is crashing and get it fixed as soon as possible. We agree that is unacceptable!

Simple and effective


This app is easy to navigate and keeps me accountable and knowing where I'm at. If I'm out with my kids and have forgotten any type of work at home, the books and guides all load super easy onto my phone so I never have the excuse to not be studying when the opportunity arises.

**Updated Review**


The app went through a period that it would crash. However, they have fixed it and it is back to being the great app that it was! They continually add new support for doing things directly in the app. Improvements each day it seems. Well done!

Developer Response

We are sorry about the crash! We have an update coming on Wednesday (4/16)
