I completed my Associates program with Phoenix and couldn't think of anywhere else I'd rather go for my Bachelors!

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Phoenix graduate program has many pros and cons. Being able to attend school via online based on your personal schedule is beneficial. The individual and learning team assignments can be labor-intensive along with weekly mandated questions that must be answered. Depending on the professor, there can be a number of essays on a weekly basis that must be completed. This can prove to be challenging with a full-time career and family. The cost of school has created some financial issues. Overall, I am pleased with the program and look forward to graduating in October 2015.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

The flexibility and accessibility of the classes, especially for those people like myself that are in the workforce. Another pro, is that the rigor and challenge of the course work is equivalent to and in some courses greater than what I experienced while I was an undergrad. The instructors, academic advisors, and financial advisors are very helpful and attentive to the students individual needs and issues.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The Pro's about the program at UOP (besides having the best online learning environment and accelerated classes) is that I know for sure that I will be able to get a good paying job when I am done in my area of study. The Con is that my degree comes at a high price for me; both figuratively and financially. While in pursuit of my degree I have lost immediate family members, my job, and my place to live. However, I promised my grandfather; (on his death bed) no matter, what Iā€™m finishing college. While there are some that do not agree with attending college online because it takes a great amount of discipline; online education is the only way that I have been successful at attaining my education. As a child I was diagnosed with a learning disability (dyslexia). As a result, at an early age I was trained to be self-disciplined. Also, It was instilled in me that; "No matter what; NEVER GIVE UP until you finish." Now, I am 5 classes away from a better life and keeping the promise that I made to my grandfather. I will be the second person in the history of my family to ever attend and graduate from a University and the first with a GPA over a 3.0.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2013

All of the classes are online which makes feedback from the instructor or team a little hard because you must wait for a response before completing an assignment. The up side is that the work is done at your own pace, sometimes you can complete a lot of assignments and sometimes you can only complete one per day. What I have noticed is that there are not a lot of Heath care Administration jobs available nor mentors for this field. I do how ever like most of the instructors who were on campus for the BA/BS program, the MBA program is sink or swim.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

I am alumni with University of Phoenix and find the school the best fit for my life as a single mom. I highly recommend University of Phoenix to anyone who is looking to improve their current situation. The course work is vigorous but there are tons of support and resources at your fingertips.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Of course, a couple of the pros to any online institution is the freedom to work somewhat at your own pace and not having to make time to travel to a traditional classroom. As far as cons, if there is something that you don't understand or need clarification on, you sometimes have to wait a day to get a response from the instructor. Also, there is a massive amount of coursework crammed into six weeks and that is challenging at times when life gets hectic.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently attending University of Phoenix online for my Masters Degree in Nursing with a focus on Healthcare administration. I attended UOP several years ago and obtained my BSHA. The online program is easy to use, available 24 hours a day on my time and very competitive. The school uses learning teams where the students must learn to work together, remotely, to attain a common goal and complete assignments. This process represents real world challenges as we are often not in the same office or location with our peers. The program builds upon itself, laying a firm foundation for further learning. Students must be self disciplined and dedication, taking advantage of all available time to complete school work. Students are encouraged by instructors to strive for excellence. Feedback is given weekly to reinforce positive outcomes and teach where improvement is needed. Students are expected to incorporate this feedback from week to week to show progression in learning. Online learning is a bit more expensive, but well worth the investment.
