The WGU Labs/Nucleos collaboration will leverage the Nucleos Learning Platform to bridge the existing IT infrastructure of prisons and deliver coursework to students earning bachelor’s degrees. This partnership also comes at a pivotal moment in the national higher education landscape.

Just recently, the Department of Education ruled that incarcerated individuals will again have access to Pell Grants, starting July 2023.
