Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

The overall experience of an online university was great. The staff and students were courteous and respectful. Everyone handled work, school and home life issues in a mature manor. I have not been able to find a job or career that works with my degree but I am still looking. Overall the school was a great learning environment.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently still in my program and so far I feel that it has been very challenging in a good way. The online forum provides excellent access to others thoughts and ideas on specific topics. It also provides flexibility to each student's time management. The only con is not being able to get real time responses if needed. However I am finding many tools that the University provides outside of the classroom to assist in the success of my program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of this graduate program are having easy access to classes and being able to go to class and to complete classes and work anywhere I am. Cons are inconsistency of professors with different expectations and the price of each class.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the graduate program at the University of Phoenix is that it works with my full-time schedule since I am an online student. The access to information and the facility is excellent. The cons with the online program is the actual interaction with people. Since it is in an online format, you do not get the same connection with people as you do with people from taking courses on campus.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I like the flexibility of the online courses in the Grad program. I enjoyed the online discussions and the fellow students. I have had a need to contact a instructor but they have been available by providing various means and methods of contact information and providing times and dates of availability.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

The Ed/CI program at UoPx is awesome. The residency requirements allows students to have an up-close and personal classroom, networking and social environment to get to know both their peers and instructors. Because we are from various states and grad programs, this experience allows us to network, learn and work together at a level never before experienced by many of us. Additionally, the level of instrution and exposure received throughout the program has been impeccable, as well as invaluable in both my life and future aspirations!

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I love my graduate program because I have had the opportunity to network with colleagues from all over globe. My life has been enriched by these experiences. My professors have been professional and truly care about my educational success. Their shared experiences have made my course load far more fulfilling. I wish I could attend a traditional class with my team mates and professors. I feel by actually interacting in person, I could draw upon this experience to the fullest.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I am very grateful for my Doctorate of Management at the UOP. My biggest complaint would have to be the financial cost as other schools are more affordable. I have been with UOP for over 5 years. I do like the online environment.
