Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Graduate school will afford me accessiblity to many avenues of nursing which would be off limits without. I have been a nurse for over 25 years. I have worked in an emergency room nurse, cardiac care nurse, psyhiatric care nurse, nurse in emergency care for prison and I can go on and on. I believe by gradest contribution to society would to teach the young people what I have learned over the years from hands on care. Teaching has always been my gift-however, currently I do not have the credentials to work an University. However, Graduate school would open these doors and poor all the compassion and knowledge I have for nursing and help shape future nursing leaders.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

I have completed my associates degree and bachelors degree with the University of Phoenix and the academics and school support staff have been phenomenal thus far even into my graduate courses. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking into online school.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

University of Phoenix has allowed me to continue my career and my family life without causing a great financial burden. Students and staff have been excellent at providing research feedback, analysis, and support for my progression. The program provides a great deal of critical thinking and scientific methodology. The only cons to the program is that a physical meeting of fellow students normally occurs once a year during the residency requirements.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2015

UoP is a very challenging university with the privilege of being able to work full-time and still be able to do class work online! The courses are quick and you have to stay on top of your game or you will get left behind. The only bad thing about doing classes online is not having the connection with everyone being in the classroom, sure you do online, but you never really see them in person. Being able to sit in class with everyone makes a big difference, but when you are an adult and have bills to pay, online is the best way to go! Sure, you spend many late nights/early mornings, but it will be all worth it in the end!

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the graduate program is that you are able to further your education online regardless of your schedule because classes are flexible and they offer plenty of information. You can also pace yourself according to your personal lifestyle. The cons are that although you can interact with people, it is usually through social media and outings, and you don't get to see people on a daily basis in class.

I feel that there aren't any cons to the University of Phoenix online grad program. UOP has all the latest technology and, in my experience, awesome instructors. All your resources are right at your fingertips!

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2107

The pros for this graduate program is that it is very flexible with my time and work. I like to the flexibility of being able to do my classes when I can. Also being an online program the program is very easy to access anywhere. The only con I can say about the program is that it is a little difficult going from a traditional classroom to the online platform. Not that it is bad, it just takes a little getting use to.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My program is online, however I actually learn better in a classroom setting. I discovered that I am a visual and tactile learner and work best learning hands- on instead of reading and discussing information.
