The University of Phoenix Online campus is easily accessible to students both new to College and students who are returning to school. The online classroom is easy to navigate, intuitive, and informative at all stages of every class. The online campus offers many workshops and tools for students to use to improve their chances of success in college, all of which are easy to use. What really impressed me was the amount of resources students had access to at any given time. UoPX's staff is extremely helpful and almost always available to answer any quesitons and concerns a student may have. I have never had to wait more than twelve hours for any question I have ever posed. Enrolling in the school was quick and easy, and there are advisers every step of the way. They also call students often to offer assistance and check in on progress. One really feels like they want to help you succeed. So far, the only con I feel I may have is the emphasis on team assignments and group participation at UoPX. There is always a chance that there will be a student or two in your group that does not carry their own weight during an assignment, and no one wants to have their grade on the line in such an uncertain environment. That being said, most of the students I have encountered are friendly and helpful. I would recommend University of Phoenix's online program to any one who feels they would like to go to school, but does not have the time to go to a brick-and-mortar campus. It is a positive and enriching experience for students of any age who are ready to pursue a degree in a field they are passionate about.

Degree: Business

I completed my first Masters degree at University of Phoenix and now I am beginning my second. Online learning is easy for me. I just started my program and don't really knows the pros or cons of this particular program yet.

My graduate program has been so far but now I am in Project Management with Ann-Marie Lee, she is a horrible instructor she honestly makes me want to leave the school then I think about all the wonderful instructors that I've had.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are having the flexibility of having to complete your work on your own tie. The cons would be having to work in these groups with people in different time zones. Other than that a great school.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that the University of Phoenix caters to my needs as a student. I am a seasoned student that has a family, works, and has a home to run while I am getting my education. The University of Phoenix's graduate program lets me be able to do what I need to do to succeed. I can come and go off of thier site as often as I feel necessary, to do my work in a timely fashion, makes me feel comfortable, gives me the tools I need to do the work right, and has many different people that have many different and good ideas. I am a self driven person and feel like I dont need a professor breathing down my back to get the work done. This has been a wonderful experience.

I am an online student, so most of these questions did not pertain to me.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

The only con I feel of the graduate program is the same as the bachelor program, learning teams. The teams don't tend to be effective and are more of a hassle for those who actually do the work.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The main pro is that I can take this class at my leisure and I do not have to be online at any set time. The main con is that some technical issues with the website or classroom can hamper your school work schedule. Although this issue is rare.
