Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The acacdemi support was for the most part great. My second academic advisor is great as well as my second financial aid advisor is. Maybe that is why the first ones are no longer there. Program was challenging. The concept of having regular group projects via technology was the most challenging and also rewarding. This simulates real life - doing project s with fols you don't know with varying levels of abilities and dedication. Taught good skills on teamwork and humility.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I love having the flexibility of doing my classes online. My one concern is disconnection between teachers, even in the same course.

University of Phoenix's Ph.D. program is very rigorous and full of knowledge from faculty educated and experienced in their field of study. This has been a very productive, rewarding experience.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the ability to access the graduate program online will be helpful with my lifestyle. I will be able to work and be at home when needed as well as gain the knowledge I need to achieve my degree. A con may be that although I am able to integrate with different individuals online I am not personally meeting these individuals or professors. The experience as a whole will be worthwhile as the end result will lead towards a better future for me and my family.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

MY program at the University of Phoenix is very flexible. The online program gives my the flexibility needed to pursuit an education while attending to my children needs. The only thing I do not like about the program is the learning team portion that is a requirement of the program. The fact that part of your grades depends on the productivity of another individuals is hard. At times my grade suffers because some individuals are not as committed.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2011

It was nice to be able to complete a program quickly and on my time schedule. The ease of using an online program is great for people who cannot make it to traditional class times. However, I felt as though much of what I learned was a repeat of my undergraduate program. I also did not receive any financial assistance of guidance so now I have a mound of student loans.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The program is great. The short 6-8 week classes are packed with so much information it can get overwhelming.

The pros of the program include the innovative use of technology used to educate students, as well as the enhanced technological resources available to students. The cons are the cost and tarnished reputation of the institution.
