Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is fairly easy. Most classes have non-traditional students who are back in school. The program is not challenging and is pretty straight-forward in all classes. What I least like about the program is the mandatory team assignments for all classes for the entire program. It builds your team skills and conflict resolution skills, but it is very redundant after the fourth class. You are able to work with different types of personalities, educational backgrounds, personal backgrounds,etc. The school is very concerned with their students' succes with weekly tutoring sessions, weekly calls from advisors, and career fairs.

One of the best advantages of going to University of Phoenix is the availability for night classes and the ability to only be required one night a week for on campus "in class" instruction. The program does not allow for good communication beteween the instructor and student. Usually it only allows for guidance 24 hours before the due date of homework.

Overall, University of Phoenix is on the competitive edge of programs. I like the learning style. Only thing is that your grades should not reflect the work of your peers if they are not doing their part of the work in a group setting.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I liked the school because it was a quick fix to me messing up in high school. I went to school mostly with older people. The instructors were great but the environment was strange. You felt watched and if you didn't have financial aid in time they kick you out without notice.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The flexibility of the program can't be beat but the faculty and rigor of the classwork leave a lot to be desired.

University of Phoenix is a great place to keep a balance between personal life and student life. I would definitely recommend this institution!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I think that the University of Phoenix offers very convenient class sizes and location. The only problem is that i think the tuition is a bit much considering that all of the books are online. Other than that i think the University of Phoenix is very good.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I have been extremely happy with the University of Phoenix since I have started my Masters in Elementary Education there. The customer service has been impeccable: from signing me up for credited classes, preparatory classes, financial aid and tech support! The professors have also been extremely knowledgeable because they have many years experience in the field I am learning about.

Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2012

Cons: The curriculum for the MBA program has apparently not changed much over the past several years. It is a disservice to the students who are paying their hard-earned money for this degree program and are able to essentially "Google" their way through the program. Instructors are likewise discouraged from altering the institution-provided curriculum in any way and are often unable to provide very much assistance to students when needed. Overall, it appears that the institution is more concerned with collecting tuition as opposed to providing a quality graduate education. Pros: I was able to gain some valuable information from my concentration courses in International Management. Additionally, I was able to procure one networking contact.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

Being a student at UOP has given me the opportunity to be able to continue with my education as well as work full time. I have been able to learn so much concerning Law Enforcement and all of the specifics of all the areas that are involved with Law Enforcement. my experience with going back to school at a late age was at first a little frightening, as I was not sure that I would be able to keep up with the courses, however as I am nearing the end of my degree I am finding that i will continue on with my education. My experience with UOP has given me a new light on education and I encourage all I come into contact with to further themselves by going back to school.
