Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the pros in the graduate program is being able to further my education. One of my cons is there are times with working, taking care of the kids, and house along with school can get overwhelming at times.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The online program is a perfect fit for my busy schedule although meeting the weekly assignments can be challenging. Nonetheless, I could not have chosen a better fit to ensure I would be able to complete my doctoral degree in a reasonable amout of time that was affordable. I would recommend UoP to anyone interested in online class when the traditional classroom is no longer an option.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program is that it is conveniently located online. The class size is very small. The cons of my program is the financial aid and the limited number of scholarships the university offers to graduate students. The switching of academic advisers; sometimes two or three times during a week.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

After a year long break I decided to re-enroll again with the online courses. So far it has proved demanding with reading the textbook online, plenty of assignments for individual and team work, and almost daily participation in online discussions or team forums. However, it is rewarding in the end or so I hope. There is plenty of interaction with the instructor and advisors, but there is always a time lag unless you call them during office hours. As an online campus I am unable to rate some of the components and hence, the overall grade is low.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that this school offers the best in education and workload for their psychology programs. I would encourage all prospective students to check it out. The advising team is very helpful and they answered all the questions that I had in a timely manner. The cons are that the online schools is a little more difficult to navigate compered to other schools but worth it for the knowledge gained.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

This program meets many requirements of the state with regards to teacher preparedness. The various classes are relevant and timely based on the demands of teaching and learning. One challenge for me is that the program is highly demanding. Another challenge with this program is that during the summer, teachers are not always able to find schools where there is a summer school session to conduct observations. The university should consider scheduling those classes in the summer that does not require field experience.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The flexibility of going to school online is great. You basically set your own schedule and have to be responsible enough to get the work done. The negative part of going to school online is that you do not get to interact with the professor nor the other students face-to-face. This becomes a challenge when you have to complete assignments as a team. It is difficult, but not impossible. I am determined to finish this program because I know all of the opportunities that are going to come with graduating.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I need a financial boost, but I didn't apply for any scholarships. I just work full-time as a CNA. I have always worked while attending college. I obtained my Bachelors of Arts in Sociology in 2011, but I just haven't gain a professional level position, yet. I will hopefully after the completion of this MBA online program. I am focused and ready to get my education on! You have to plan financially, physically, and mentally or it will be a terrible waste of time, money, and energy.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2014

The workforce is becoming more and more competitive and there is a need for project managers. Not only is there a need for this specific position, but, there is a need in general to know how to work in groups on projects. PM goes deep into time management and budget management which is essential for any manager climbing the corporate ladder. Most of the PM positions I find are within the government sector and it is difficult to enter this sector late in your career.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The pro for this program is there is a lot of information and its current. I feel strongly that what I'm learning has practical applications. The con for this program is the expense. I don't know how I will every pay back my student loans.
