Student & Graduate Reviews

3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The cost of the graduate program is expensive. The accessibility and educational instructions are excellent; tie to life experiences.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is fine, especially for a working adult. Some instructors are better than others. Then just switched their online portal and it made everything difficult.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I have only taken online classes. The classes I have taken have been challenging at times. I have really enjoyed it!
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are you are able to understand the concepts of the class by interacting with others in different career fields as well as the teachers. Another pro is although we are on different time zones we are able to communicate effectively as a class and get the job done. Con's are not a lot of interaction with academic advisors until something bad is happening. Another con, deals with the way there isn't enough online social clubs through the university. They have mentor programs which i am a mentor but people want to be able to be in some sort of club that will enhance his/her networking abilities.

I have truly enjoyed this program I only wish the financial aid part of the program was better organized and more was offered
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in the UoP graduate program. The program allows me, as a mother and full time employee; to access my education while participating in everyday life. One of the negative aspects would be the cost and the accessibility for internship and clinical studies that coincide with the program.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Phoenix makes use of technology to deliver an engaging experience on-line. The fees are extremely high and hampers with the general affordability of living but the work / life balance is manageable, especially if you commit to classes most days of the week. The syllabus is not as strong as other schools, but the University makes up for it by using other optional exercises.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros is that it is convenient and can work on your on time at home. The cons is that you don't have that teacher to student contact.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

UoP has a very demanding education program which results in a quality education.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros for attending the University of Phoenix is being able to complete a semester in 9 weeks and the quality of the teaching staff is excellent. The cons of attending the University of Phoenix is the cost. Also the workload can be extreme if not use to it.
