Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 1999

The University of Phoenix offers faculty of whom hold Phd's, or a terminal degrees. Where else can one receive instructions or learning in economics from a teacher who served as ac former director of the US import /export bank? Or environmental , business law from a former corporate lawyer well versed and practiced in the area. This is its strength. It isn't easy working full time and accomplishing this, it is however worth it. Since it's inception, traditional colleges and universities have adopted very similar programs. Realize like any other path to a diploma that it requires commitment and hard work. Great school, great philosophy of teaching and exceptional results. And no, I don't work for the school! Whatever school you do choose, take it all the way!

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2010

The University that I attended was the perfect fit for me. Consider that I was working a full-time job, and had a wife and daughter to provide for. The University of Phoenix allowed me to maintain my full time job while making it manageable to continue my studies. In addition, the individual and team presentations played a significant role in my professional development. Along with all the issues that come with working with a vast variety of personalities. The program is structured in such a way, that allowed me to slowly integrate myself into the university setting. In a way, the University empowered me to take on a leadership role simply by granting me the academic separation from my co-workers. For that, I am grateful and a great deal of gratitude is expressed when I am asked about my university experience.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

I would highly recommend the University of Phoenix for several key reasons. As a military member, they are very accommodating in the idea of time. Being able to conduct military matters and attend class when I have time without a penalty of being late is a huge draw. The School has been willing to work with financial issues and are experts at the use of tuition assistance. Being stationed overseas the biggest hurdle is the time difference, which the university has helped with by allowing penalty free submissions. Overall the experience has been great and the academic content is on par if not higher than those of my civilian friends attending other establishments.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Phoenix is almost everywhere, which makes it ideal for a single working mom. I had great instructors and it could be a good fit for people who have limited time and don't want to sit in a brick and mortar style classroom. You must have the drive and initiative to get the job done.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2017

I attended the University of Phoenix and obtained a Master's Degree in Adult Education and Training. The school was wonderful and I highly recommend it to others seeking to advance their careers through higher education. There are three main reasons why Phoenix appealed to me. 1. My program was completely online. I live is a somewhat rural area, so the online program gave me access to options that I did not have locally. I didn't have to travel to the school at any point, so that was an added bonus. 2. Class sizes were small. I was in classes of less than 20 students fr the entire program. Most of the classes were fewer than 15 students. I took many classes with the same group of people, so we built relationships that made group projects easier to complete. 3, University of Phoenix allowed me to take one class at a time. This was excellent for me as I worked a full time job and a part time job throughout the program. Being able to focus on one class at a time made the difference for me. The University of Phoenix is a great school. My personal experiences have been positive and I look forward to returning soon for my Doctoral degree.

Degree: Small Business Management
Graduation Year: 2019

Before apply to UoP, I have researched attending other online schools. UoP staff were/are extremely helpful with assisting me through the enrollment process. As you could imagine being a single mother of 4 school aged children and a full time employee, there have been life issues that have risen and the staff at UoP has been supportive, understanding, and great guides to help me stay the course to pursue my degree!

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

University of Phoenix is a good college that a individual will enjoy going to. The instructor are really understanding with the student in helping when a person having a problem with the assignment is about and the online program is a flexible if a student are working.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2018

University of Phoenix offers the flexibility of working through classes on your own time, while providing a robust and informative curriculum that allows students to excel in their careers. As a working mother of three children, I needed the flexibility of an online program, as well as the knowledge that comes along with obtaining a Master's Degree. My children get to see how hard mommy is working with school and work, and I don't feel as though this would be possible with out the University of Phoenix.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2019

The University of Phoenix has been a great fit for me. I have tried a few different online programs and all have either been hard to use their platform or not engaging enough. Each course is 6 weeks for the graduate program and lots of work is required. In each course you are grouped with peers in each course to form a Learning Team. You are required to complete individual and group assignments each week. It allows you to actually engage with other classmates even though you don't step foot into a classroom. Overall it is a challenging program but I have enjoyed my journey.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Phoenix Online Program offers great outcomes to any student who has the desire to strengthen and heighten their education level. UofP support from the beginning (with orientation) to the end (with graduation) has the proper foundation and formula for any students professional and personal development and growth. Based on my experience with the UofP  the administrative staff, tutoring staff, professors and other university's resources truly represents the rise of the phoenix. As a student, the UofPx is giving me new life!
