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.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

There are different areas to focus on outside of the classroom that would benefit from my graduate program. I see as the only portion to be helpful because I work full-time. There are many portions to this that can help establish a continued working environment as well as making changes to how I can develop within the community. The con would be that there are not all ways a time for each team member to be on and at times it will take other classmates days before they will return emails or have their assignment ready for the team to complete there portion. With the overall experience that I have developed through UOP is that you have to always be competitive and sometimes be the one to take charge to have the work completed.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Becoming a mom was one of the biggest challenges of my life. I thought I was not going to be able to handle it all. UOPX has made everything easier on me. Their online campus is absolutely user friendly and the teachers are always accessible. They are always challenging us and making us do more research and get the information so we can actually learn. It hasn't been easy maintaining a good GPA but I am glad. I like challenges and this is one I am willing to take.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Pursuing a doctorate program while sustaining family and work responsibilities is a huge undertaking. A balance must be made between working on your degree and being available for your children and work leaders. University of Phoenix online allows for my degree work to revolve around working 40 plus hours a week, taking care of my children and home during the evening, and work on homework or papers in the late evening. The professors and mentors are supportive of working individuals. The con to the program is it costs quite a bit of money to take courses and being a single parent makes buying additional books or paying for classes during the dissertation phase difficult. I am almost complete, but need $5,000 more to finish my last two classes. Submitting for scholarships is one way I am trying to raise the funds needed to graduate and start teaching to return the knowledge I can pass to others. I also did not rate campus safety, surrounding area, or transportation since I am an online student.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

This program will help me pursue my career goals that go past teaching in the classroom. My master will help me go on to work in develop curriculum and eventually end my career teaching at a college. The only con that I would have would be the redundancy of some of the assignments. I am all about growth and reflection but when I repeat assignments almost two weeks in a row and am told to copy and paste to the new information, I become discouraged with my program.
