Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is difficult but not so difficult that it can not be completed. It has versatile classes and the academic support is wonderful. It has many options for class start times so the schedules can be as versatile as needed.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

The graduate program has been a great experience for me. I have been to other schools and UOP has been one of the best so far. The academic advisors and financial aid counselors have given me all the tools needed to proceed with my degree plan. I also enjoy the length per class. UOP offers Master's level courses in a 6 week interval versus 8 week's at other colleges.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I have just begun the graduate program and am having significant trouble navigating all of the places that I am suppose to for the courses. I am quickly falling behind in the course work as a result. The faculty seems to be really responsive and helpful... hoping it is just me.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I think the Masters of Accountancy is an excellent program, especially for individuals that are looking to take the CPA Exam. In my opinion, the program is structured to prepare you for the exam. I have been working in the Accounting field for over 30 years and this program has been very helpful in allowing me to be even more successful.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I do not need to travel to the school because it is online However I am an alumnus of the University of Phoenix in Philadelphia. It is uncomfortable to use the computers in their because sometimes the staff is not professional and sometimnes the students are not either but online I have had many professional teachers coaching and the faculty looking out for me as well a few problems with mky academic counselor but thankfully the fiunance counselor was ready to jump in as he was concerned

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

University of Phoenix is a great organization, unfortunately the quality of the instructors varies greatly from class to class. They each choose to read the Syllabus differently which causes great confusion during the first week of each class

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is exceedingly challenging and I rate it an "A". The length of some of the courses are the only cons

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

The main pro of my graduate program is the opportunity it is providing me for my future. With this degree, many doors will be open for me. I feel I will be able to secure a career in the human resources field and apply what I have learned there. The only con of the graduate program is the classes are very expensive (although I believe worth it in the end!).

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros of an graduate program is opportunity to further advance in the work field, further my education while working and being a full time mother and wife. I have been able to earn my masters degree online and it did not interfere with my busy life at all and I did not have to leave my home or anything. Pros is that I will be able to get a better job that pays better and I will be able to afford spending time with my family and paying my bills without struggling or getting more than one job to make ends meet. I will have more job opportunities in the job field and I will be able to add my years of experiences to my education experiences. I just need to finish one more class but I am not working, I am receiving a disability check because I had to stop working and stop school due to a breast cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment. I put school on hold despite it all and it was hard for me to do since I had already pushed through school while pregnant, even after the breast cancer diagnosis, while in labor I was doing papers. I am committed to finishing school I just need the finances to complete school. I have no cons I am appreciative to be able to go to school.
