My graduate program at University of Phoenix online has been even better than I expected! I am learning advanced technological skills as well as information and knowledge concerning online programs that will be extremely beneficial to me as a future online educator.

My graduate program was great at providing the PhD in an online format. However, I am of the opinion when students get near the final stages of the PhD program, the support was not as great.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

the pros of the program are that it allows the student to do the work at the student's convenience and that the student does not have to physically go to the building, rather the student completes work online. The cons are that there is no face-to-face interaction and it may be more challenging to learn when the student cannot interact in real time.

I love attending UOP online! It's great! All of the resources you need are available. The teachers are very helpful and our classmates. The con is we can't see each other and I would love to because everyone has been friendly. The support is much needed and appreciated.

I felt the overall online experience went well. I am going to start student teaching and am concerned about the financial aspect of working for 3 months without pay. The one thing I feel about the financial aid that could have served me better was being told about scholarships/grants that might be available to me. I was never given that information because I applied for loans. It would have helped me a lot to know there was some monies available to me that may not have needed to be paid back.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are that it is an accelerated adult learning program. I go to class one time per week. This was good for me because it fit into my life schedule and allowed me the opportunity to take care of my family and personal responsibilities while still earning my degree. Of course a con would be the cost of an education today. It is very expensive and after graduation I will have student loan debt.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is online so a majority of the questions were left blank and do not pertain to my school. I thought the online classes would be boring, because I did my undergraduate work in actual classrooms, however they have proven to be quite interesting. I do feel like it's more work because I am on the computer all the time, but the convenience is nice and the teamwork in the classroom makes me feel like part of a real class. I think the program is good although I am coming across some issues with the praxis. I will have to stop the program for a month or two while I wait for the results and I wish I had been notified of this a long time ago. I reside in Misawa, Japan and the praxis tests only come once or twice a year. Overall the classes are effective and I am glad I chose this program.

My personal opinion regarding the University's graduate program it gave me the flexibility to manage my personal life along with the compact education program. Balancing everything was a difficult task in the beginning but with the support of the university I overcame my fears. i am eager to work toward my Master Degree with the same university.
