Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros are better job opportunities to increase income and provide better support to your family or loved one. You also learn valuable skill to better yourself as an individual while serving and a role model to other. The Cons are the amount of time needed to keep up with the classes and getting into financial issues due to student loan.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I attend online classes and for me the pros are being able to complete assignments on my own time. I enjoy not having time restraints as one have with attending classes on campus. I have the ability to work full time, be there for my family and keep up with a full class load all from home. The cons would be not having that much interaction with classmates. Also, as an online student you don't get the opportunity to have direct one on one talks with your instructor.

I don't believe that there are any cons to the graduate program. It is about the individual and where their commitment lies. I admit it was difficult in the early part of my program and it is only human nature to blame others for your faults but ultimately it is the individual that must work for what they signed up for. The classes, professors, and the faculties are there to guide you to fulfill your goals. I have gained so much knowledge from the courses and my classmates.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The Master's Project was challenging. I did not pass the first time because the Request for Proposal was too long (152 pages), but, I thought as a consultant I could do the job for the Army. After I did not pass the first time, I search for another proposal approximately one year. The proposal required more than just one consultant. The second Request for Proposal I passed. The proposal had one page, and required one consultant. The pros of graduate school to define a good request for proposal, follow the guidelines in the Master's Project Handbook. The cons when you do not pass the first time, finding another acceptable proposal might take a long time. I completed the Master's Project in three years.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The flexibility of an online graduate program is the only option that is feasible for me at this point in my life. I work full-time; therefore I need an education/degree program that offers flexibility to work with my busy schedule. I also need a program that challenges me and push me to my highest potential in the field of education. The online graduate program of Master of Arts in Elementary Education that University of Phoenix offers fits my education goals/needs. Pros: -flexibility in schedule -classes are back-to-back but not simultaneously (allows me to work full-time and do class work) -accelerated program (little to no break, if you choose to do a continuous schedule) -online means no time spent traveling to and from campus -work can be done at any time that is convenient (there are deadlines, of course) -work can be done anywhere there is internet connection Cons: -Cannot physically meet with team members for group projects can be hard at times (clear communication through group chat/emails are crucial) -communication (phone and email) can be slow with professors/classmates -cannot truly build rapport/relationships with professors/classmates -no "group dynamic" that can been felt or seen, only through online communication

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a new college student. I have been enrolled since Nov 17,2015. The pros of this type of school is I can work full time and do school work at home in a comfortable learning enrviroment. I think this college is designed for working mothers like myself. I do not have any cons at this time. I manage my work and school schedule and I am doing a great job with balance. I love the advisors and instructors. I actually can appreciate the set up of my classes. They have been so helpful. There is no time I can not call or email one of them and they don't respond timely.

I feel that the pros of this graduate program is the flexibility to complete all courses online to create a realistic schedule. I feel that the cons of this graduate program is the student expense leading to loans in the future.
