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.

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.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I like the University of Phoenix everybody that I have talked to from financial aid, facilitators, academic advisors have all been helpful. I couldn't give a rating for on campus questions since I haven't been on campus, all of my studies are online. I would recommend anybody that would like a good education to go to the UOP.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

My rating above doesn't do the program justice! I am completing the program online, so I can't answer many of the questions about the area because I only travel to Phoenix once a year for my residency. I enjoy the flexibility of doing an online program. I do miss the interpersonal interaction of an in-person program, but the residency really helps to manage this well. I think it is a great option for someone, like myself, who is busy with a career and doesn't want to take time off for 3-4 years to complete a degree.

Being in an online setting, it is hard to received feedback in a timely manner from your professors.

Overall this is a very good college to attend. There are a lot of good resources that you can refer to if you need help, there is a financial aide counselor that is very helpful, the college is very close by my home and convenient for me to go to, you will get a better job upon graduating because there is a career center, and there is a lot of communication with your peers even though everything is conducted online. There are a lot of cons about this college as well there are times when the system will be down due to maintenance issues and you may have an assignment due, and also the career support is fair but not all like it should be you have to apply yourself to career center if you want a better job. Over this is a great college.
