I am looking to expand my knowledge of Network Administration, Networking, etc. I have graduated from Junior college and a 4-year "Brick-and-Mortar" college but I hate to not continually improve my education so I was looking to attend an online school.
  The traditional B&M schools are not really an option with my current employment and there are so many options out there, diploma mils, or complete money pits, it is difficult to find a good option. I have been looking at Western Governor's University because it's priced right, great system, and fully accredited, but I wanted to get some first and accounts of other options.
  Just looking to see if anyone has had good results or heard great things about an online university that would meet my situation.

I go to WGU.  I'm finding that I am more and more resistant to self-study.  It's just my personality, but I'm too far along to not finish.

But you are right about everything that you said.  It's priced right and they have a good system running.  For people that are really good at self-study, it's awesome and very cost effective.  With having said that, if you are just looking to keep up with technical skills, WGU might not be what you are looking for.  Just like any other University, if you take classes there, you are going to have to take classes that have nothing to do with your focus (like social sciences).

If you go through with it, I can send you a referral that will waive the application fee.
