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.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

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.

Pros of my graduate degree is that I have flexibilty. My classes are online so I am able to work around my family and job. Cons are that I do not have an actual lecture to attend and that is something that i do miss. I miss the classroom interaction

Online is great for working adults. I had never done online before, but find it to be a good fit for me.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I loved my graduate program! It was very flexible for my busy lifestyle and the curriculum was very rigorous and appropriate for a graduate level program. The instructors were very attentive and would respond 99% of the time within 24 hours as promised. The one thing that was sometimes a struggle were the learning teams, but that is something that everyone has to deal with in the real world. We all have to deal with working with people who are not team players and learn how to work around it to make a project a success. As frustrating as it was at the time I am thankful for the experience because it has taught me how to deal with difficult co-workers who do not want to respond to requests or take part in projects and such. I rated the "physical campus" items based on what I know about the local campus in my area. I am an online student and do not have a need to go to campus but know there is one close to me if I need. Also UOP does not have campus housing so I base that rating on surrounding housing in the area as well.

I think it provide an overall view of the mechanics and components needed to associate in the business world and also applies real life situations so that one can prepared the after life of college into the real world.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I went to University of Phoenix for my MBA and did the first part of the program online, and later switched to a campus program to graduate earlier. During that time, all staff and faculty were supportive, encouraging, and provided me with networking connections post graduation. Within six months of graduating, I was making well within the targeted salary goal I had made for myself. Moreover, I have decided to go back to University of Phoenix Online to pursue a PhD. I recommend this program to students who want to learn business theory in conjunction with real-world practice and team building.
