Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

The best thing about this program is the learning from various sources around the world. You have instructors that are experienced in their field. With more online options, University of Phoenix is too expensive and the rigor of coursework is not up to par with other Universities around the country. I'm worried that as it may have prepared me for a career in education administration, it may not have prepared me to be successful in a doctoral program. Some advisers are great but it is a call center environment so there is a lot of risk to get advisers that really don't care fully about you as a person.

Must be self-disciplined. School needs more one on one advisers but is a great program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

The course work was easy to work in around my busy schedule. Being able to complete my degree online and on my own time made it possible to still work full time, be with my family, and still teach my educational goals.
