Missouri's online university to help working adults finish their degrees


Missouri's online university has a new chancellor and a mission to help more working adults finish their degrees.

Ranee Le Blanc earned her Bachelors Degree through Western Governors University and is now working for her Masters with WGU-Missouri.

Governor Nixon signed on to establish the program in February.

The chancellor says online learning works for those with full time jobs and kids.

Ranee says it takes self discipline but there's also help from teachers and mentors.

"I looked at several online universities, I picked WGU ultimately because of the price, the flexibility of schedule, but also because they're very connected with their students - they call once a week to make sure I'm on task," says Le Blanc.

WGU is competency based, not credits, so students move at their own pace and can even take extra classes for no extra costs.

The online university is $6,000 for a 12 month educational year.
