Second post because the first one was deleted and I am not sure why.
Has anyone else had any issues accelerating the last two courses of their degree into their current semester even if you had 4 months to complete the capstone which should take two to two and a half months to finish. Wgu is giving me a really hard time with my request and will not explain to me why.
Has anyone else had any issue accelerating the last one or two class to your current semester if you have four months still left in your semester?
I am starting to think WGU is trying to slow the progression of my classes to force me into another semester and along with it another tuition payment.
I really hope this is not the case but I am not getting any straight answers to my very direct request.
Distance Learning Systems is so excited about this new partnership with WGU Texas. We are looking forward to what the future has in store.

Please don't call me anymore. I'm not interested in going to college but thank you anyway..I have had health Care in my life 🧬🧬
On Saturday, July 31, the Express will pay homage to the Austin Black Senators, a Texas Negro League baseball team based in Austin from the 1920s through the 1940s. Round Rock players and coaches will don Black Senators jerseys and caps to help honor one of Central Texas' earliest professional sports teams, presented by the Round Rock Black History Organization, Chisholm Trail Properties and Austin Area Urban League.

A portion of Austin Black Senators merchandise sales will benefit the Round Rock Black History Organization, a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating the citizens of Round Rock and Williamson County about the contributions of African Americans to the culture of Central Texas and the United States.

The team’s jerseys will be auctioned off during the game, with all proceeds benefiting the Willie Wells Memorial Scholarship at Huston-Tillotson University endowed by the Nolan Ryan Foundation.

All ticketed guests will be invited to enjoy a Kydd Jones postgame concert from the field, presented by Dell Technologies and St. David's Round Rock Medical Center.

The first 3,000 fans through the gates of Dell Diamond will take home a 2021 Express baseball card set, thanks to WGU Texas. It's all part of Saturdays at the Ballpark, brought to you by A+ Federal Credit Union.
