Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

Many of the criteria does not apply to an online graduate program. But I have been satisfied with the rigor of the program and the overall quality of the program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the online campus. Being able to complete coursework whenever it was convenient for me was a huge benefit. I didn't find the coursework challenging enough and I was disappointed that my peers were not as competitive as me. Overall I am glad that I joined the program, but I will also be pursuing a degree in a traditional classroom setting.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

There is always a debate about traditional schooling and online schooling. Online schooling offers convenience and availability to complete the necessary workload on personal timelines. The use of technology makes add to the simplicity of school by having all the classroom tools in one place. I would definitely recommend online schooling but there are also several aspects to consider. I am not going to lie that adapting from traditional schooling into online school was a bit of a challenge because you have to force yourself to remember timelines and homework. Also there is one negative aspect to consider which the relationships and direct interactions is more difficult to establish. By the time I was done with the graduate program, I developed one friendship and professional relationship in another state. Other than that, I am very proud of my education and my degree with UOP.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The pro to obtaining a degree in this environment is there is no travel required and I can work at my own pace, the con to this program is there is no traditional lecturing from the professors.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently enrolled in the MSN/MHA online graduate program. I find that the online programs offered in the UOPx provides a more diverse exposure. Interaction with students and professors from all over the United States and exposure to their online classroom was not hard at all.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that the graduate program that I am currently enrolled in has many pros which include but aren't limited to the accessibility of the faculty, the diversity of my classmates and the quality of the assignments. The faculty is always available and willing to help sort through any issues that arise. In the filed of Psychology, you encounter people from many different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and the classrooms in my graduate program were very diverse. There are people from many different backgrounds who have different and interesting insight which forces us to think outside of the box. Working in teams prepares us, the students, to what our careers will consist of once we graduate and become employed in the Psychology field. I can honestly say there aren't many cons that are associated with my graduate program. I am very pleased with the quality of the workload and the expectations they place on the students. I was unable to properly rate many of the survey questions because I am an online student.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pro of graduate school is the opportunities I will have once I am completed with the program. The many classes that I am taking are very good learning experiences. The con is the financial aspect. It is unreal how expensive it can be to want to further your education. However when you want better for yourself and your family, one tends to put that behind them to go for their goal and worry about that when the time comes. Although it is good to apply for an many scholarships as possible and repay to the best of your ability while you are still in school so that you will not have as much to pay back.
