Some pro's of this program include the time management, technology factor, career resources, and large alumni network. Cons include high cost, not a top tier school, and no infrastructure.

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!

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program at University of Phoenix - Online is excellent for those who work and do not have the ability to commute to a campus. The level of education is excellent and manageable, although can be rigorous with the classes being shorter and more is expected every week because of the accelerated program. The support and business staff is very helpful and I can always communicate easily my need and concerns. Enjoyable experience.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Some of the faculty has been excellent, and some not so great...it's the luck of the draw. Could use more tutoring, but overall my experience has been great.
