Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Great program. I started our this program with hesitation due to the lack of time that would be spent in class. After a few classes and getting into the swing of things, everything started to fall into place. The teachers are great and I love being about to talk to people in different fields of work. After making it through my bachelor's program I decided to work for my master's degree. Although times are tough financially, it is worth every penny.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019

University of Phoenix staff goes the extra mile to ensure that their student is successful in their chosen field of study. You get curiosity calls when it seems like you are having trouble in class. On the first day of class, you get a call to ask how the class went and how you feel about it. University of Phoenix also provides its students all necessary resources that they fell will be helpful in being successful in class.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

University of Phoenix offers a great program for students who have other responsibilities. The flexibility of class rotations, start times, and functionality has made it possible for me to go back for my MBA. The key is that the instructors are all master craftsman. They are not just another professor standing in front of the class spouting theory or info from a text. They work in the field they are teaching, they bring real world experience to the class room and relate it to what we can use in the workplace. The only dislike is the learning teams, but it is awesome to build relationships with people you are in the same rotation with to encourage and motivate from start to graduation.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I graduated from UOP with a BS in Criminal Justice in 2013. I choose to pursue a BS in Criminal Justice, ultimately because of the strong relationships I made with the Los Angeles Police & Sheriffs Department, as well as some of the faculty members in LAPD Gang Units. I then challenged some of my former students who wanted to drop out of high school, that if they continued their High School diploma, I would go back and get my MBA. My interest to further focus my degree in Education and Leadership was influenced heavily by my participation in the work in the community as a Mentor, Minister and Educator. I currently serve as the Dean of Student Services for a charter high school located in Compton CA, I am a Youth Minister as well as a Mentor for the nation Guard (Sunburst Youth Academy) at risk youth 15-19 years of age. Being awarded this scholarship would certainly help me financially since its more costly in the Doctoral Program. Thank you in advance!

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019

I have been so pleased with the University of Phoenix, they have made everything so easy in the registering process and my advisor checks in with me regularly. Of course the schedule works well for me, I work full time and I'm also a single mom to a 13 year old. Meeting on campus one night per week works best for me. The classes are challenging, but in a good way, I feel very engaged and the learning has snuck up on me, I am already feeling like I am starting to understand the process of counseling. I have a lot more to learn, but it is clicking and I am so proud that at 45 years old, I am back to school and excelling with a 4.0. I did not know if I remembered how to write a paper, but it came back, no problem. The professors are very accessible and encourage questions on assignments if there is confusion. Even outside of class they are happy to help. I have recently joined the Alpha Beta Honor Society, and I am looking forward to networking with others in the field there. I highly recommend University of Phoenix, especially to working adults. If you are like me and an "older student", you can do it!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

University of Phoenix is a great place to get your degree, they help you work around your schedule and many people supporting you along your journey. They online library is a great resource to research all items your area currently working on. What I enjoyed most were the free workshop. The one I took was being a critical thinker which definitely helped open my eyes.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

Classes in my program, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, are hit and miss. About half of my instructors have been good, some have been dismal. The program is way too long and way too expensive to be worth your while. Go to a state school for better value. My program is considered full time, yet it is 3 and a half years long, where similar programs at other schools are 2 years. By keeping us in school so long University of Phoenix gets to keep charging fees. Due to the length of the program, and the cost, pick another school.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Phoenix offers a rigorous Master's level program with excellent instructors. My tenure in the 18-month program was enlightening and enjoyable. Receiving instruction which prepared me for the challenge of further studies at the doctoral level was immensely gratifying, fulfilling and has proven quite useful in my current academic pursuits. Most of the professors were engaging and readily available for support if needed, and provided helpful feedback on your progress during the programs. If I were to make a recommendation for the improvement of the program, it would be a greater focus on independent study and less reliance on 'group' study for students, culminating with an individual thesis. While I understand that as scholars there will be times when collaboration will be necessary in research efforts, the challenge of team work in the online environment, is that some students are not as invested or as professionally responsible as others, and the spread of the work to be completed is not evenly distributed among team members because of lack of participation by some. All in all, my experience was a pleasant and productive one, and I am proud to say that I attended the university of Phoenix.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

University of Phoenix has an excellent set up for adults who work, raise children, are involved in activities, and are living life where day school is virtually impossible. One night a week is the common set up for programs presented at University of Phoenix which is perfect for those of us that want to pursue and complete graduate degree programs, but also have obligations in life which must be met. The teachers that I have had instruct the courses that I have taken in the program so far have been knowledgeable, helpful, and fair. I am grateful to have found a program that fits my busy lifestyle and that is preparing me for a career in counseling, along with preparing me to pursue a higher degree.
