Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program is that the University of Phoenix has companies that they promote within so when I finish my degree I can find a good job. The program is very flexible which is helpful when you have a job and family. The cons of the program is that the professors are not always that helpful. The amount of time it takes to get your degree and the cost of tuition is rather high.

Online Campus provides flexibility and convenience.If you are really determined to achieve your goal, the only major problem is the cost of tuition .Overall, this University offers many valuable resources to succeed.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel that the pros of the Education program online are convienience and ability to use your technological skills while learning. I feel that the cons are working with a professor who doesn't get to know you personally. I love University of Phoenix and would recommend this school to anyone!!!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I have nothing but positive things to say about my program experience. Everyone I have encountered has been extremely supportive and helpful and continues to offer support throughout the program. The professors and faculty understand that the majority of students in this program have families and full-time jobs in addition to pursuing further education and are understanding of that while not giving up any educational quality. The social life is a little lacking simply because is it primarily an online experience! Overall, though, it is an amazing program!

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Phoenix online has provided me with such an enriching experience thus far. The networking experience with other students throughout the world has been great. One of the cons is the workload. I like the structure of most of the classes. However, when you factor in that most students are in school full-time, work full-time, and have family responsibilities, it can become a bit much. The other con would be the financial aid factor. I'm in a situation now where I am frozen until I come up with the money to cover my last class, which I was told should have been covered by financial aid. Then, I will have to come out of my pocket again because there is a shortfall. But overall, it is a good fit for me.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I love attending University of Phoenix. This program is allowing me to finally achieve a major academic goal.....earning my Master's Degree. This is major accomplishment for me. I am able to do earn this degree while working as a full time multi-disabilities teacher and a single mother. My six-year old daughter is able to see me through this process. I am a role model. She is six years old and she already speaks of going to college. Attending University of Phoenix Online campus is allowing me to achieve many great things!
