Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I joined the University of Phoenix in July and I have been with the program for about 5 weeks now. Overall, I've enjoyed the program due to its accessibility with my work in the military, it has been difficult keeping up with graduate education because of this work-life. The diverse group of individuals that make up the classroom through the online classes give a lot of opportunity for a student to learn from your classmates' experiences. Like any program, what you get out of this school will be what you put in to it. The alumni program is enormous and the additional education opportunities with online and local classroom seminars offer opportunity to expand your knowledge and connections beyond what you just pay for.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The program will allow me to teach online and have a flexible work schedule. The down fall is actually getting a job with the degree. They don't have a placement program or student teaching program.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The best thing about UOP's online program is I can attend when I have the time and work around my schedule. The cons are the stigma surrounding UOP even though the coursework is built around real world examples, not a text book class.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I am extremely surprised about the coursework. I doubted my ability as far as performing on a Master's level. To my surprise I am doing well and I currently have a grade point average that is higher than my undergraduate. The coursework fits, and I am enjoying the classes.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

An online program is truly about developing skills in time management. Weekly learning within a 6-week course is at times very time consuming. If you like tangible personal interaction, online is not really for you. As for as the work covered, there is always a tie-in to real world.

I Enjoy going to school On-line because of my busy lifestyle. I am a wife and mother, I also work full time, so On-line work best for me.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently in pursuit of my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice with the University of Phoenix Online. The program is excellent and the courses are exceptionally detailed and relevant to the field I am pursuing. The Criminal Justice program and classroom layout is accommodating, easily accessible, and effortless to learn how to use. With this program, time management is easy. Planning everyday activities, appointments and "me time" along with homework is easy. The only con that I can foresee someone having is the lack of face-to-face teaching. You are not in a physical classroom. This is not a problem for me however. Phoenix's online classroom gives you all the tools needed to succeed in your classes. There is easy access to your assignments, classmates, and teachers. There academic and financial advisers, teachers, and tutors are just a phone, email, or instant message on the message board, away.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Taking online courses at the University of Phoenix online has been a great experience so far. I am able to manage my work schedule, my loving family and my education without feeling overwhelmed. Yes my social life has come to a halt, but keeping my focus on the opportunities my family will have because of my MBA keeps me motivated.

The pros of my graduate program is that it is very detailed and clearly prepares me for advancing in the workforce. The con of my graduate program is that it is more expensive versus other programs.
