Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The program has allowed me to achieve my personal and professional goals. The two cons of this program is that it is very costly which most graduate programs in America are and the accessibility to some of the instructors as they are not full time staff of the University.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

The biggest weakness of attending an online school is the inability to properly socialize with other students. Digital resources and local events allow for networking, but the overall feel of the university is adverse to socializing. With that said, the material is robust, and the learning process is effective. I was immediately able to apply what I learned in class to the real business world.

I only took my residency classes, so I had to pay for my stay in Atlanta, which was pretty expensive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

the areas where I gave a low mark it is only because I am an online student and those areas do not really apply to me. I did my undergrad and am now completing my grad studies at University of Phoenix and I love the experience.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Going to school online has given me the flexibility I need to complete school while I work. My family has not felt that school has come in the way of them. The only con I have for my graduate program is that every professor has a different way of laying out their classroom. They all have different expectations, which makes it difficult to plan ahead because they frequently seem to change their minds about what their expectations are.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros- advanced online capabilities that trump other programs. Diverse cultures bring both working long working adults and young students to create a well-rounded community within the classroom. Cons- difficult hours and sometimes there are server failures that limit the use of a class during specific hours. Some of the professors are not adding value past the lesson plan.

The pros for the graduate program at University of Phoenix-online are the accessibility to take classes online without technical problems. It is convenient to take classes that fits within my work and personal schedule. I am able to review materials using my Android telephone or using a computer that has WiFi access. The University of Phoenix encourage students and provides assistance to improve writing, communicating, and critical thinking skills to meet the competitive work environment. Grouping students into teams, allow students to communicate in an open environment and develop leadership roles, research and development skills, writing and proofreading, along with learning how to be respectful and offer sound feedback. The academic and financial advisors are proficient in explaining the details and progress I am on and available to answer my questions seven days a week. At this time I do not have a con about the graduate program and hope to continue moving forward in earning my degree.
