Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros works well for continuing education students in regards to the classroom time. However, the expectations regarding assignments and observation hours are quite arduous for someone working full or part-time.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The school is great for education and other subjects. Wonderful instructors. However, poor financial support. If you are a student who do not have a job and only relies on Federal Loans you will not be able to complete the entire program because they do not adjust the loans amount to make it possible that you continue in the program.

University of Phoenix Online was a great career choice for myself. I am a stay at home mother with two young boys, one of them being a special needs child. Therefor, my education choices were limited due to not being able to get child care. U of Phoenix has amazing career support. They are very encouraging and always supportive. Everything needed to succeed in the class is available online in the course materials. I am glad i chose to attend the University of Phoenix online.

The University of Phoenix online graduate program is an excellent avenue for working professionals to advance in their field or receive a competitive education that will allow them to change careers. The flexibility, sophistacted use of technology and highly interactive online classrooms are unmatched in a classroom setting. All of my professors were also working professionals which enabled them to provide a current context and modern, practical application for the curriculum of their course.

The graduate program that I completed was the MBA in Health care management the University of Phoenix online campus. The program laid out very well and my fellow students were from many diverse areas and had an array of experiences : preceding their quests for degrees with the University of Phoenix. One of main pros of the program was the flexibility and the fact that only once course would be taken at a time every 6 weeks within a two year time frame. Also, the instructors and professors were very intellectual and knowledgeable regarding the subject matter in every class, and I can absolutely state without hesitation that there is nothing that I regret about choosing to pursue my MBA in Health Care Management with this university.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I love being able to do the work on my own time. My company even lets me do my homework on their time because it pertains to my job. The University is VERY flexible and accommodating with my schedule; when I got pregnant and had morning sickness really bad, I was able to take a simple leave of absence until I felt better. Plus, they have a great alumni program that allows you to access all their resources for life once you are an alumni!! Attending the University of Phoenix is one of the only recommendations I have ever made to friends and family.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

The Pros are another opportunity to learn the skills I need to compete in the new Global marketplace. The Cons are that I could accomplish this without the University. The only reason I am enrolled is so that I have a chance to win some scholarships to pay for some diapers.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2013

The online program at University of Phoenix has allowed me to pursue my dream of a doctorate degree while working and taking care of my family. The education I receive is just as rigorous or more rigorous than any classes I have taken on any campus. The largest con is the inconsistency of university advisors (not faculty) with communicating important information to students. Additionally, University of Phoenix does not always have the reputation they deserve in certain states. This program has been demanding, rigorous, and has allowed me to pursue a dream I didn't think was possible.
