Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros are that it is online and allows me to continue my daily life and do my work on my schedule. I feel that the information is challenging enough where I'm learning. UOP also has a lot of beneficial resources to use to complete assignments and to prepare you for finding jobs, scholarships, etc. The cons is that I'm taking it online. Although it is a benefit, it is also a con because I feel I don't get to network as I would if I were face to face. Also, I feel the workload can be a lot for someone with a busy lifestyle. I have had online courses during my undergrad studies and I found online was a lot more work than in the classroom.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that the pros of the Ed D program is flexible and the online campus is a great option. The cons are the cost of the program and having to fly to Phoenix once a year - the cost is all out of pocket.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Attending the UoP has been an excellent choice for me. The classes are structured in a meaningful format and allow for useful discussion at all times. I have access to my instructors and students daily and my advisers are outstanding an available throughout the week. The only negative aspect about online courses is the intense workload for some classes. Six weeks per class is not enough time to grasp all concepts the way I would like but the resources are always available during the course and after.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

There are many pros about University of Phoenix Online. School works around you. You do not have to leave the luxury of your home or go and sit in a classroom. The classes are small and you get to know people from around the world. However, there are cons about going to school full time online. You do not get the face-to-face time with the professor or your classmates. The courses are fast paced and it takes real self-motivation to do online classes.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate education program at the University of Phoenix is very challenging yet rewarding. The faculty are very hands on and are quick to respond to any and all comments and questions. The diversity of the classroom makes the learning experience more exciting and intriguing.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I enjoy the fact I can do my online studies at my convenience instead of driving and setting in class when it is not so convenient. Online college is very difficult because sometimes it is hard to receive help when needed. This makes online students work even harder to find answers and learn while researching. I like the way the accounting program is set up because it makes sense how it all flows together. This program provided useful materials and an abundant of information to my accounting degree.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

The program permits the learner flexibility, with structure. The learner has the ability to access the discussion session on their mobile phones anytime. I would recommend the program to others seeking to obtain higher learning.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that the pros of my graduate program is as soon as I graduate I will be able to get a job right away. The cons will be by the time that I graduate my field might not be hiring in my area like I would like it to be.
