Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros include fostering a teamwork atmosphere. Working in healthcare requires a great deal of teamwork and with the UPOX team projects, students have the opportunity to become leaders within the group. This is a selling point when looking for employment after graduation. The cost of course would be the con for me.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

As a working student, online courses are very convenient and fit in with my schedule perfectly. Faculty members are always available to answer any questions I have. The courses are very informative and working in teams/groups mimics real work situations which helps when looking for a job. Sometimes there is not enough time to finish an assignment throughout the 8 weeks program. If I was given an extra week I probably would have finished that assignment. Overall, excellent program at Phoenix.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Phoenix is an excellent accredited higher learning graduate school. The teachers give constructive feedback that helps me grow as well as assessments that pertain to the area they teach. I thoroughly enjoy working with other students from all over the world. The University of Phoenix has given me the opportunity to make a lifestyle change to a career I've thought about for years. I'm able to balance an odd work schedule with online courses. I'm thoroughly grateful for this opportunity and I need financial assistance. I'm making it on my own but every little bit of help makes this dream a reality.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Phoenix has allowed me to continue my education while continuing to work full time. The faulty and staff have been very supportive in helping me with financial aid and in answering any questions. My classmates online are interactive and assist in my understanding of the information we study in class.

Pros: flexibility to balance worklife, homelife, and school. Supportive staff. Accreditation Career Services Diversity Accountability for your own success. Cons: Must be self motivated, able to commit time each day for class and keep up with the accelerated pace of the classes.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2011

Since this was an online program, many of the questions do not actually apply. The school has higher standards than most other online schools I have taken courses with. The school has also been around for a long time so they know what to expect from the students, staff, and software they need to use to teach the courses. The cons of the program is that it is rather expensive. I could have gone to another school with the same certifications for much less, but I chose not to because this school has a better reputation as well as stable online resources.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Phoenix is an excellent place to start getting in the education grove if your schedule does not afford you education at a brick and mortar school. If you can afford to do so, I would highly suggest go straight to traditional universities as the value of the programs at this school might not get you to your career goals.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The online experience isn't for everyone. There's a lot of work involved and it requires a high degree of self discipline to keep up. The caliber of students in class and the diversity of work experience and geographical location is great! Not to mention some students in class with doctorates already - I was surprised at the number I encountered. Most instructors are helpful. And the material is relevant to my professional endeavors. I appreciate the course content in my IO psychology classes. Some of grading categories are not applicable to online courses.

I have had a great experience thus far in my program and do not expect anything less. It is a great school to attend when you have a busy schedule and need the flexibility to participate in class on your time.
