Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I have been part of the University of Phoenix since 2009, when I decided to begin my collegiate education. I love the multiple choices for online degrees and how much dedication they give to their students. It is amazing how all of their instructors are or have worked in the field they are teaching , which increases the student's success. As a military spouse I am proud of their commitment to the military and family members alike.

Degree: MBA in Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2013

Univ of Phoenix is a great online source for education. It is highly expensive and you get what you pay for- a phenomenal curriculum. I am changing to Educational Technology due to career changes with Univ of Florida. Furthering education is amazing!

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

This has been the perfect school for me. I researched several different options before choosing to go with University of Phoenix Online, including other online universities and local universities where I would need to attend classes on campus. They were a lot cheaper but not what I needed. I am a busy single mother of three working full time, so flexibility was crucial. You take one course at a time and it only lasts for six weeks. It has been an immense organizational help to focus on one class at a time rather than three of four. Classes usually run consecutively, so you simply move from one class to the next. If for some reason you have to opt out of one of the six week courses, like I did at one point because of family issues, you don't have to wait until the following semester to begin classes again. You simply pick right up where you left off once the next round of classes begins. With such a busy schedule, I have been able do my classwork when it is convenient for me. I can work on something at 2:00 am in the morning if I need to. I don't have to miss anything my children are involved in because I have "class". The program that they use for online classes is fabulous. It is user friendly and has so many links and options to help you with your course work. It keeps you on track and up-to-date with information needed for your current course and degree requirements. It has been a huge success in keeping me organized so that I don't get behind. The instructors are reputable and are currently or have been heavily involved in your particular area of study. They are available through several means such as the class site, personal email, texting and phone. Through email or a quick phone call, there is always someone checking in on you to make sure your needs are being met.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely love my MSN nursing administration program! I had been out of school over 25 years and was apprehensive and not sure how it would be. I knew it would be work, but I had the time and the drive. The online program worked well for me as Pennsylvania winters could be difficult traveling to classes. The faculty are excellent and give feedback to help you succeed. They engage with the class and ask thought-provoking questions that keeps it interesting and easy to participate. I feel like I am learning just I need to help me in my current job as a Master's degree is required now. I loved working with a diverse group of students and have made some online friends who give each other support and keep them in a positive attitude. I can't imagine a better school online.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

When I applied for University of Phoenix (UOP) I did it online. I wasn't sure if it was something I wanted to do or not but I went for it. Within minutes of applying I received a call from the school. They answered all my questions and made me feel at ease with the whole process. Even after I started my academic representative called me before every class and to ensure I was doing fine and to see if I needed any help. She was with me every step of the way. I would definitely recommend this school to others.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I really love the online learning. It provides me the flexibility that I need. Some of the instructors are great and make themselves available day or night. The first year residency could have been more informative with more work that would have given me the opportunity to gain knowledge that was gear toward my specific degree program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Phoenix online program has given me the opportunity to go to school and earn my degree while working and raising my family. I have achieved getting my Bachelors degree thru UOP online and looking to further my education by getting a master degree. While I am assigned an advisor for both student issues and financial, I am not limited to talking to just those advisors. If they are unavailable another will step and address my question and help me with what ever issues I may be facing. The university also provides multiple aids to help all their students online and on campus. The career guidance link and life resource center are great resources to help me further my career path and face difficult life challenges. The instructors in class are also great. They provide opportunity to connect with them no matter what time zone you live in. I have been able to communicate with several east coast instructors even though I live on the west coast. The commitment and dedication of all the staff and instructor helps me obtain my goals and feel supported in my efforts to broaden my education. This is why all my higher education will be done thru University of Phoenix.

Degree: Nursing

University of Phoenix MSN program is very rigorous but rewarding at the same time. The professors are great and provided much needed feedback throughout the course. My academic counselors and advisors are always available when needed to answer questions and guide you in the right direction.
