Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I like to work at my own pace, on my own time, yet feel connected among my contemporaries. University of Phoenix Online affords me this opportunity. Not everyone can work in an online environment; you need to be disciplined in every aspect of your professional and personal life. With determination and organization, you'll accomplish your goals.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2010

I liked the online program. The availability of coursework and the convenience of completing schoolwork when I could, was worth the higher tuition than another college that requires a commute. The instructors were always helpful and very friendly.

Some of these did not pertain to me as I am an online student.

There are always classes that can be taken at anytime.Not much help is given in helping students locate grants and scholarships.
4.5 out of 5.0

Pros are online convenience. Cons are bachelor's program involves ONLY working in teams for each class. Team work is not productive and students do not seem serious.

3.83 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

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.
