Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros would be the challenge of the school work and the time to be able to complete work. The cons would be when trying to understand concepts mainly math courses not having a professor show how the problems need to be done.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

My school was very supportive every step of the way. The support staff from academic advisor to financial advisors were always accessible, informative and committed people. The classes were challenging, intellectually stimulating and very student oriented. The teams were wonderful and contributed to my training as a teacher. The resources were current, high quality and easily accessible. The mentors were good. The only con was that the residencies did not have on-site psychological counseling that I could access when I was under stress.

Although I am an online student, I feel that I am afforded the same opportunities as my peers in the traditional classroom. The customer service at the University of Phoenix is extraordinary and I feel like a member of the family. I was hestitant to enroll in a graduate program at first because I wasn't sure if I could handle the pressure of schoolwork on top of a full-time job, but the online classroom is perfect to balance both work and education. I am extremely pleased with my choice and I would highly recommend the University of Phoenix to those that are interested in pursuing a graduate degree.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

My grad program is tough to say the least, which is not a bad thing. Going for an advanced degree should be a challenge and one that all students should consider undertaking if they want to better themselves and gain greater career opportunities. The only issue I have encountered with my program is the lack of consistency among instructors. One instructor may require something that another instructor does not require or vice versa. If this was not an issue, UOP online would get a perfect 10 out of me!

I did not get any help with job placement and no support from my counselor poor customer service and I would like to go back only if I see quality customer service I am half way done with my masters degree and because I had death in my family I fell behind and end up not being supported by anyone to help me get back into my program my GPA fell to a 2.75 and was not up to part to meet the requirements of my student loan I would like a opportunity to continue my education and someone that is concern to help me to accomplish my goals

I have used University of Phoenix online program since 2008 throughout my Associates, Bachelor, and now my Master degree program. I can tell you the online program this University has is amazing. In addition, the University has mobile apps that allow me to respond to discussion questions, read material, and respond to my team and professor. My academic counselor and financial advisor are amazing. I am always able to contact the faculty staff with amazing results. The material is easy to comprehend. University of Phoenix provides reading material to the students at a flat rate which helps me financially. I am learning an extensive amount of information in my program, I don't feel lost. I feel my 4.0 is contingent to the school's program excellence.

The major con for University of Phoenix is the learning style. This school requires you to participate as a team for the entire 7 weeks of the class. I am not comfortable working with others in a team as i prefer to be held accountable for my action not that of the entire team. The pro has to be the flexibility of the school schedule.
