Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

University of Phoenix offers a wonderful online learning system. They seem to have a resource for everything. They offer an online library, counseling services, writing centers, math centers, and more. The professors have been really friendly and willing to help. The only downside I have noticed about the university is the workload. Then again, I am enrolled in a graduate program, so it is to be expected. Overall, wonderful school. Glad I decided to enroll with the University of Phoenix.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I have been a student at the university of Phoenix Online for 10 months now. During this 10 months I have no complaints thus far. UOP staff has always been there to have any questions or concerns that I might have. The curriculum is excellent as it pertains to the topic on hand.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2005

Pros: I was able to handle both school, a full time job, and be the mother of two all at once. It was challenging, but well worth it in the end. I was able to apply for school and be enrolled seamlessly and without difficulty. They made that process incredibly easy for me. NICE! Cons: With the exception of high tuition costs, I highly recommend UOPhx.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

The curriculum is challenging, and the professors are very knowledgeable. The cost is not comparable to other online institutions. If you are an online student there isn't an opportunity to network with students.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The online courses are awesome. Great interaction among students, and faculty I would not trade the University of Phoenix for nothing in the world. I was sort of hesitant to apply, because people said it was very expensive, but once I was accepted and learned about the educational tools that were offered for free I had no regrets. The previous University I attended did not have a third of educational tools to help you become successful in class and the workplace than the University of Phoenix.

An excellent program with good work life. The online program allows access to classes with little interference to other activities. The education is quality with no extra expenses. Learn from home in your spare time. fully accredited. the down side is no real personal interaction with students. digital community.

Graduation Year: 2015

I personally feel there are more benefits than disadvantages in the graduate program with the University of Phoenix. The school of advanced studies provides a challenging program that requires students to be dedicated to their studies. The program is relative to real-world needs but incorporates a well-rounded historical concept foundation. With the online virtual classroom, the only disadvantage I can express is a lack of personalized one on one conference with instructors. While instant messaging and email conversations give guidance, there is no replacement for face to face conferences.
