Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Phoenix-Online provides me the ability to work full time as a teacher while I pursue the Master in Education in Administration and Supervision. I completed a Master in education in Teacher Leadership this past spring and decided that I wanted to add on administration so that my opportunities would be greater. My enrollment counselor assisted me with determining what courses I would be required to take as several for the new program were completed during the previous program. The coursework challenges me to move beyond the rhetoric of just writing papers and makes me delve into the texts and electronic resources so that I have a broader understanding of the realities of education and how I may positively impact the school and system that I work with. Without the fleixibility of the online classes, I would not have been able to complete my first Masters program, nor would I be beginning my second.

Degree: Criminal Justice

The graduate program offered by UOP is hands down. In today's life there are many demands such as raising a family, working full time and getting a higher education. UOP offers that to it's students. I am married, have two children, work full time as a litigation secretary, and am pursuing my Master's all at the same time. The course materials and online forums provide me with critical information and knowledge that I need in order to be prepared for the field I hope to enter.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program. I have come across some very supporting faculty members as well as other students. The campus life is missing, as to be expected since it is an online program. Understanding that other class members have full time jobs and therefore untraditional class work schedules, done take some time to adjust to. This was also a great opportunity to practice my time management since their is no teacher in person that is telling you to get your work done. Overall the format of the classroom setting it very well worked out. I chose this school mainly for that reason; I did not want to be in the guinea pig class for a school that was implementing the online system.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

University of Phoenix has what I believe is an equal amount of pros and cons. One pro and con together is learning. Learning teams can be an uplifting and influential experience, but at the same time it can be or become very stressful because of non-participants in the group. The other pros are labs but the con to this is the labs need updated equipment although the software is up-to-date. Another pro is the fact that the instructors are wonderful, smart, knowledge, and seem to care about teaching and students learning. The remaining pros are use of the university's online library, resource/career center, counselors, and tech support. The remaining con is that sometimes assignments can become confusing or the syllabus appears to not be structured.

Overall learned a lot. Challenges were understanding complicated material and not learning it in a classroom.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The school goes above and beyond to walk you through the entire process of the program from applying to completion. The best part is that when I need to access someone for assistance I literally never have to wait and will always have someone to help me along.

Degree: Criminal Justice

I don't feel that there are any cons to this program. I am so happy I applied to go back to school and chose University of Phoenix. I think they are well organized and each person is is so helpful. Anyone who asks me about what college to go to online I would send them here.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: I have been utilizing the classes and course materials to my current work place. I have learned more about public administration and the government than previously. My employer told me, as soon as I graduate, that we can discuss the next steps in my professional career. Cons: Level of students vary in consistency and accuracy of team/academic work, even in a grad school setting. The level of professional did get better with each sequential class.
