    it's a competency-based, IT degree where certs = credits

    It's new for them, maybe, and that's great and newsworthy, but it's not new in general. COSC gave me credit for my Microsoft certification over a decade ago. And the IT Masters programs from Charles Sturt University in Australia have been based on this idea all along.

    I think Brandman University has better reputation than Western Governors University due to affiliation of Chapman University .

    They're all schools that few people have really heard of. Perfectly good, absolutely, but not like, "Whoooooa, you went to Brandman !"

    I kind of like having a generic/anonymous undergrad alma mater.

    "You graduated from Kuh-Ree College?"
