Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

During my course of study I felt challenged, and my instructors provided great insight and feedback. However, I often question if my degree is taken as seriously as those from other colleges and universities because of University of Phoenix's reputation.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2006

It was very convenient. I found most of the class challenging. The biggest obstacle was coordinating team projects with people in other time zones.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

A great opportunity to explore new topics and become better at something you love. A way to build a foundation for a future career. What you get out of it is based on how much effort you put into it. There's a lot more to college than the classroom.

It's not worth the money. You don't learn a lot, teachers just pass everyone.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007

I wish I had waited and chosen a different school. UOP is an ok school but doesn't carry any weight when it comes to getting jobs in NY state. I payed too much for a degree that I wish I had done differently.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2011

It was a lot of hard work and I have never used the degree. I am also hugely in debt because of it. But I have made life long friends.
