    I'm just starting a new job, so as soon as I have enough save up, i'm gonna spend it on WGU. Plan on studying Information Technology—Networks Design & Management, so if anyone could please send me an invite, i'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you all.
    Hello, I believe this user read my mind, just what he said is what I was planning to write. I hope someone could send me an invite to start the process at wgu.

    thank you,

    Leo

    Edit: I got my invite from erpadmin, thank you!!!

    Hi I'd like to request a referral. I'll be sure to get back to you after I apply and everything. I'm not sure if I can accept pms yet, but I enabled email. Thanks!

    Default To All:

    A couple of folks have gotten back to me about starting soon (October). Plus with the last referral, I believe I can definitely now share the wealth and let others have at the referrals.

    If anyone needs a referral and they have not gotten a response from folks, you can PM me. If you can't PM, follow the instructions in the first post and contact Webmaster to turn PM on for you. You can also PM others who you see who are looking to refer you.

    Good luck to all.

    Just FYI if you didn't get the referral to waive the $65 when you first applied, as long as you didn't approve your AAV you can still apply for the referral. You will get the $65 back when you get your student aid.

    I was wondering how far into the process you could get before the referral was no longer an option. Thanks for the info!

    So the cut off on the certs is 5 years then?

    How are they on previous schooling? In think when I stopped I was very close to an AS in computer science and mathematics. I think I was missing assembly language, a physics course, and discrete math. Looking at the IT Security degree, it looked as if between my certs and my schooling, I had a lot of their requirements already done. Are they pretty accepting of things like that?

    I believe it is five. You would have to call them in order to verify.

    AAS or AS? An AS would transfer in a lot of credits.

    An AS actually. It was community college and I was on course to transfer to the university there to finish off a BS in CS (math science option) and Math (applied).

    I had two semesters of programming in C++ (ending with the advanced data structures class). Quite a bit of math, and a slew of the GE's and other subjects (criminal justice, administration of justice), heck... even took the Police Officers Standards of Training course for 22 units.

    My hope was that with my past experience in IT (about 5 years ranging from PC/printer repair, PC help desk and on-site tech to application development) , combined with my certs as well as my schooling, I could cut my time to finish a degree in IT security greatly.

    My certs are all under the 5 year mark and I planned to start as soon as I finish my CCNP.

    Sounds like a good plan. If you want to really diversify your skills (not a bad idea for someone wanting to move in to security) then you may want to do the database emphasis.

    I am also interested in getting a referal for WGU. I am looking at either the BS-IT or the BS-IT Network Admin, but I may also take the Security course instead.

    I think that I am not able to receive pms yet, but I have enabled email in my profile.

    Thank you in advance,
    Tony

    Default Thank you NOVOVICTUS

    Thank you for the referral. I am sure I will be hearing from WGU shortly, so I can finish my application and take my entrance exam.

    I requested a referral and received one. I sent that information to WGU. They acknowledged the receipt of the information, but I have not heard anything else. How long does it normally take for this process? I would like to go ahead and finish my application, but would rather not pay. Thanks in advance.

    Mine happened pretty much right away. They email you a code (kind of like a coupon code) which you then enter after you fill out the application. Are you sure you didn't miss it in the acknowledgement email?
