Any SNHU/WGU graduates?

I’m currently enrolled in SNHU online and I hate it. I’ve thought about transferring to WGU but I’m unsure which college employers like to see more. I currently work as a jr. network administrator and the degree I’m pursuing is cybersecurity.

I will put a perspective from the employer’s table. Having a degree is filling in a checkbox so I know you have an ability to teach yourself and have some skills related to what I want you to do. Outside of having a prestigious degree from MIT, Princeton, CalTech (there are more) it doesn’t really matter. The only time the difference will matter is if you had an alumni on the hiring team or if someone previously performed really badly from a certain school.

That said, I think you will have a good leg up on your competition since you do have working experience and will get a degree (from somewhere). Just to check, why do you hate SNHU? Is it because of the teachers, the projects, or the interaction? If it is the teachers or the interaction of the program, it may be better at WGU (check with previous alumni). If you hate the projects, well its going to be bad anywhere you go and its a good experience where you are working on what your “company” wants you to do, rather than what “you” want to do. Good luck.

I’m currently in WGU and it isn’t bad. There is a lot of self responsibility and discipline as there are no instructor led courses. Overall though, I’ve been happy. The certs that are included in price and it does help out.

I switched from SNHU to WGU and don’t regret it a bit. SNHU I found myself using materials when testing and WGU is proctored so you have to know the material. SNHU also uses TestOut and WGU you’ll at least have the big 3 CompTia certs and PenTest+.
