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.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

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.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the criminal justice program are that there will always be a need for individuals within this field and vast opportunities on were the individual will work because the criminal justice field is much more than just police work. Therefore, individuals who chose the criminal justice program will need to decide which direction to take their graduate program because the concentration of the program will lead the individual onto the correct path. The cons of the criminal justice program are that some of the assignments require the individual to interview those already in the field which takes time because these officers, judges, lawyers, etc. are not readily available or not open to the interview process. This makes completing assignments a challenge because the interviewee may not be able to set aside time to assist the student.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pro is that I am able to teach and be with my students while obtaining my degree, the con is that there is so much information, having to work full time is difficult to absorb it all.

Degree: Software Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

As a online student and soon to be father, University of Phoenix online program allows me the flexibility not only full-time work but as well as family time. I cherish every moment time spent with my family. This is the same reason why I pursued to finish my studies at a later age. The online class also provides online video materials to adjust to your learning habits. They offer an array of materials to understand the subject as well as research it too. I one draw back for being an online student is the interaction in real time with other peers; however, you do manage to find students are online "all the time" which crucial to ask specific homework or project questions. I would like the option to interact in a video conference with my teachers. I can email or chat ,but emotions or expressions can get lost during communications. The video conference would provide language inflections to indicate what an online student is trying to convey. So, their are always good things and bad things. I believe you make due what you have and not let it hinder your studies or goals.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I have found the University of Phoenix online graduate program to be extremely rigorous yet supportive and overall informative and quite scholarly. I am never alone and can always access and reach my professor, and financial or academic advisor when I need him or her. The guidance is more than what I experienced as an undergrad student at a brick and mortar school. I would highly recommend University of Phoenix online programs, hands down and without reservation --as a matter of fact, I already have!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

I love the ease of online classes. I am a single mom working nights and conventional classes would be impossible to attend. Working around my children and my work gives me the opportunity to complete my degree.

The UOP online program is very stimulating and allows you to meet a great diversity of people through the online classes. They are on the cutting edge of online technology and continually making renovations to improve student online experience.
