Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I have always enjoying attending University of Phoenix. I can always communicate with my classmates and teachers. When programs needed to be adjusted the counselors would contact me.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

As I am a student of the online campus transportation and surrounding areas do not apply. Despite visiting a physical campus, UOP provides many opportunities to for students to interact and network. Many classes require group assignments. Overall I love the convenience of being able to make my own schedule. It allows me to work full-time while still being able to be there for my family.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The Industrial and Organizational Psychology program is challenging. The I/O program requires a lot of researching and writing. To understand I/O psychology, I style it as a hybrid degree with a focus on business, human resources and psychology. The I/O program is excellent for those pursuing human resources type work or looking to advance their knowledge, skills and abilities to address organizational issues such as applicant selection, change manage, or executive development. The program is longer than most graduate programs, which is why dedication is required to complete the I/O program.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Phoenix online program offers a unique experience for all students. There is a great diversity with student interaction form all around the world, different business sectors, national and international organizations. Students learn from each other and give insight into realms associated with their own work environments while gaining valuable perspectives of corporate structure, organizational management and leadership. Navigating the Doctoral journey is not easy no one ever has said it was, but it is just that a journey with roads that are sometimes wide, narrow, on track, off track, bumpy, smooth , whimsical at times, always a challenge but in the end an experience you will never forget. You have to keep your eyes on the "prize" and you back to the " wind".

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Wanting to obtain the credentials to teach is only obtainable through the Master's of Education program; unlike some other local schools that offer the credentialing program solo.

As a alumnus of The University of Phoenix, I believe that I received a great education which left me with the confidence of obtaining my dreams and goals within my life. I believe that with my education, anything is possible.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is designed to flow in a logical order to build the dissertation from the initial idea through completion and presentation to the college chair. The program is well designed and the interaction between myself, the facilitator, and fellow students is beyond rewarding. The above categories marked with five stars are simply because I am an online student and there is not a section for N/A. The program is preparing me for a wealth of employment opportunities beyond my degree program completion and retirement from the United States Navy. Thank you in advance for allowing me the opportunity to apply for this scholarship as graduate program expenses are extensive.

University of phoenix has a staff that is knowledgeable, eager, and available to help at all times. The technical support staff makes it easy to engage professors and students. It feels like you in the classroom. The experience is priceless.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am just at the beginning of my Master's of Education in Elementary Education. This is an online program with outside field study and education. I am a non-traditional student who is 49 years old and working full-time while I am attending school. I am working to improve my marketability in order to better support my family as I am a single mother of three children. I have been very impressed with my University experience so far. Staff have been very helpful and involved to this point and the instructor interaction has been wonderful. There is 24/7 technical support for students and faculty and email or phone access to all faculty. The only con that I can think of at this point is that as an online experience, it requires a person to be extremely disciplined in order to stay on track with classes. It sometimes presents a challenge for the non-traditional student who is working and raising a family as well.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I really enjoy the program, it is up to date and relevant. My only wish is that there were better resources for financial aid. Most of the financial aid/ scholarships resources are not applicable to me. (I am either too old or too young to apply for them).
