Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

The am currently two classes away from receiving my graduate degree in Criminal Justice. I chose the University of Phoenix-online because I believe they offered me the most challenging classroom atmosphere while performing my work online. The teachers are extremely knowledgable in their respective fields of study. The major con of my graduate program is the amount of effort that had to be placed into working on team assignments in an online atmosphere. It became tough doing extra work for those individuals who choose not to partake in the "team."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I really enjoyed the fast pace environment, the ability to communicate with others across the globe, and all of the resources available to me. Additionally, being a single mom for many years, it was impossible for me to go to a physical location. The University of Phoenix provided me with the best option for myself and my family. I have continued my education with them because of the quality of the coursework and the excellent support I receive all around. The only negatives are that people still do not feel that a University of Phoenix degree is as valuable as other colleges.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I like University of Phoeinix but it is sometimes hard to get instructors feed back, also it can be difficult to communicate with all the different time zones. I feel the UOP Online is pretty to navigate. The cost of UOP I feel is to high and more then most online colleges. I have considered looking into other colleges that are more affordable, and have a better job placment rating.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

For international students it is very difficult to get a chair or committee member. There are very little opportunities for scholarships or grants for international students even if the gpa is good.

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.
