Good educational environment. Faculty was accommodating to any conflicts dealing with work or personal.

Degree: Business

Being in the Business Administration program each course was six weeks long and one at a time continuously throughout the year. It helped focus on the course which helped maximize the education level. Although the learning aspect is amazing, the courses are extremely expensive.

Classes at the University of Phoenix are quick, but very educational. I have learned so much in the last year of college in a short amount of time. This is a great way to go for a full time mom and full time employee. I feel this is a great place to get an education in while still working.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

There is always going to be positive and negatives with any college, but I have very little negative comments about the online programs with University of Phoenix. The staff is very friendly and always available to help, and the curriculum always meets my needs of education. If I were to provide a con for this school I would say that the classes are at a faster pace online than at campus, and at times you can become overwhelmed and behind schedule if you are not familiar with the process. Other than that I absolutely love this school and the convenience of online learning!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program is I am able to work or be home with my children and continue my education. I do not have to miss work or things for my children because I have a class to attend. I feel that the cons is there is not enough peer and teacher interaction such as lectures. I feel some sort of technology should be used for students to see and listen to instructors lessons.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that some pros of my graduate program (EDD) include providing me with the opportunity of understanding effective critical leadership model in education. Developing leadership behaviors that are consistent with positively influencing organizational culture and work environments in educational institutions. The cons include paying back the student loan, and maybe the difficulty in getting the right job that will provide me the opportunity to practice what I have learned while paying back the loan.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The overall grade for the online education program using this site's rating system is not representative of the benefits that students receive. Unfortunately, many of the items do not apply to the online learning environment. I would recommend this program due to the challenging nature and opportunity for interaction with a variety of professionals.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am truly enjoying my graduate program. I believe that the accessibility of the instructor and other staff is a pro. I believe another pro would be the free course material because I am alumni. The different concentrations available for the Psychology degree is a pro! The abundance of information on the program and field, as well as the resources available, are both pros of my graduate program. The only con I believe for any of the graduate programs online with University of Phoenix is that internet access is required every time course material is accessed. I see this as a con because if an individual is not alumni, the individual is required to pay for his or her online course material. I believe if an individual is paying for the course material, after the initial download of the chapter, the individual should be able to access the purchased course material with or without internet access.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

I got to work with people from all across the country which was pretty awesome. The downside was that they weren't always available at the same time.
