Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

After having many hang-ups about taking online classes, I can safely say that I highly recommend getting a degree online, especially to the full time worker. As a person with a full time job, and not much time to spare to sit in a classroom, let alone write papers, study, and take tests, the University of Phoenix has offered me more than I could imagine for my graduate degree. I was very nervous going in, thinking that I wouldn't make it, that I would be forced to drop out, or that I'd fail. I currently hold a 3.7 GPA, and am able to keep a great balance of work, school, and home life. It's very doable, and I can't recommend the school enough to anyone looking to go back to school, or further their education!

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I do not have personal communication with many of the students and I miss the classroom experience. Otherwise, my education has proven to be effective in the areas that matter. I would not have been able to complete my degree without the opportunity that online courses provide.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm in graduate school, work full-time and a Mom of three kids. Going back to school was a major sacrifice, but I feel that it is worth it for my family. I like the online classes because they allow me to be able to complete my homework and coursework any time of day. Going back to graduate school is the best decision I made.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that my online graduate experience is a great fit to my life. Being able to further my career while working a full-time job and raise two boys is why I chose to go to an online university. The only downfall is having a difficult time communicating with other people from my class teams.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I really like the program that I am in. It is a great opportunity and it is also nice to be able to chose the best four days that are best for the set schedule that a person has in their personal life. I really wish that you could take at least three courses at at time though because it would make the graduation process go a little faster and I would be able to get my degree sooner.

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.
