University of West Georgia Reviews

18 reviews
I recently completed my Master's degree with West Georgia. I found the whole experience to be very user friendly. My entire degree was completed online and the only time I visited the campus was for graduation. I found the professors to be very friendly and helpful. You could tell that they wanted you to be successful and were willing to answer questions and make any clarifications necessary. I would recommend the online programs to anyone who is interested!

Completely incompetent admissions department. Impossible to get a straight answer from any department. Not transparent about program tuition- I received a quote of $7,000 from one financial aid agent, "we can't tell you" from another, and $15,000 from my adviser. I was connected to someone higher up in the financial aid office and left a message but never received a call back.

I do really enjoy one of my classes- Dr. Morris is outstanding. However, the other one has no idea what she is doing and is making the experience unbearable.
This school is mainly focused on undergraduate students, graduate students specializing in the biology department are not taken into account and usually treated like they have not feelings nor other things to do.
