Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of attending University of Phoenix would be the flexible schedule and class times. Having the option to attend online or campus is helpful for those of us students who work full-time and have kids. Cons would be the the cost of tuition. For an university to have most of its books online i feel that the cost students pay in tuition is too much for online books.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is good and contain a lot of information that can be useful in my career the only cons is that it does not have an internship in the master's program and this is needed at most jobs in that field.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I did not see any options for the field I am getting into. I am a full time student and employee. Getting my BA in medical administration with a concentration in management is very important to me. My goal is to help people in any way I can. And this scholarship will help me reach my goal.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The pro's of attending school online is the accessibility. I am able to work full time and deal with all my personal responsiblities while taking classes. I like the fact that faculty are available for assistance and the teachers are willing to help. The one disadvantage is the team projects, because some people work harder than others and it is relying on others to finish their work for your grade.But I am learning alot in the program and it will benefit me in my career.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2010

University of Phoenix has an ideal online program for working adults. Its online environment allows students to pursue their degrees from the comfort of their homes without the hassle of commuting. It's programs, though rigorous, equip students with skills that will foster marketability in the job force. The online environment promotes social networking among learners, yet its unique structure allows for flexibility for those with busy schedules.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014

I wanted to attend an online school, because of my work schedule and I believe online learning is the future of education. There are advantages, such as, it teaches me discipline with learning, the school requires interaction with other students and realistic subject matter. The downside is the world still has not caught up to see online education to be equal to the brick and mortar education. But over all, graduate school has answered the age old question of, "when will I ever use this stuff". In grad school it is not focused on learning new material, but mastering the material you already know.
