Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

It is convenient to attend when it fits into my busy life and schedule. As a single mother of two kids I need a flexible program. The con is you are in the classes only 6 weeks and don't have enough time to truly form a personal friendship with other students especially because you are not meeting face to face.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros to my graduate program are it is easier to manage the work and time, you can be productive with other things while getting your degree, and easy contact with professors and classmates. The cons are courses are expensive, the different time zones between classmates, and the lack of ability to perform efficent group work.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my program is the ease of use, diversity of the students and instructors, and the freedom to complete assignments according to my individual schedule. The cons are dealing with the issues the system presents during upgrades or glitches, the team papers and projects, and the occasional instructor that does not communicate well. Pretty standard issues for any university.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Phoenix has been great with feedback and classroom support. I really appreciate the involvement of my advisors, they call me once a week to make sure I am doing good and I don't have any questions. The classroom is very organized and it is easy to get help from teachers. Phoenix is however, expensive making it difficult to afford my classes.

Pros: I save gas money and can easily work around my work schedule. They check up on me to make sure I feel comfortable with the work load and offer a wide selection of diversity among students. Cons: I have yet to find one.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall UOP is a great school. I wish they offered ground classes that allowed me to get more face to face education in my area. But the online technology is advanced and allows me to easily interacted in my online forums. I enjoy it a lot.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros to my graduate program is to better position me for possible management positions and/or promotion. The cons of a graduate program is the intense focus and time it takes for each course completion. The dedication that one must endure is paramount due to juggling both work and school. However the pros far out way the cons as this program is temporary but the benefits last forever.
