Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

Online makes it easier for the working adult to continue education. As a busy teacher, mom, and wife, I do not have time to attend traditional classes. Having completed my Masters Degree online, I knew that I wanted to pursue my doctoral degree online as well. Financial and Academic counseling are lacking. If I do not persue them, then I rarely ever hear anything. I cannot continue in the program if I do not get a scholarship, soon!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

I have attended University of Phoenix for the past four years and have yet to be disappointed. The admissions was wonderful, my adviser's have all been supportive and updates me on all information needed. The financial aid department works hard at keeping me updated on my financial standards and the importance of borrowing money. I don't think there is another school I would rather be with, I love be a Phoenix!

Degree: Business

Taking an online course for MBA is definitely challenging than attending an actual class as it requires more dedication and effort. However,the UOP gives every available resource to get the skills needed for career advancement.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2013

This program is very easy for those that are still working full time. I am not sure what it would be like if I were taking it on campus, but the online option is effective for a working professional such as myself. The only thing that was not accessible about this program was the online availability of instructors. Sometimes I would have pressing questions and they would not always be available.

Degree: Business

I like the online courses because they have everything for the student located in one place and a million references to utilize. Workshops to teach you how to navigate their system and much more to help any type of student.

University of Phoenix, is an awesome school. I am a returning student and the couselor's have been very courteous and attentive. The course work is not too intense but it does make students think and participation is a must. Students communicate on a regular basis and overall the work pays off. Just as every other school, it does have its downfalls but for the most part, it is an awesome school and students can learn from one another.

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.

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!!!
