Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I currently had three associate's degrees from other colleges and decided to get my BSN through the University of Phoenix. The school makes it simple because they do all the leg work for you. They set up your classes and provide assistance if you need it. I graduated with my BSN last month and had an outstanding experience. I completed it in 16 months. This program requires the student to be independent and a self-motivator to complete it. I graduated with a 3.79 GPA and I am starting my masters program next month. I prefer online education so I can spend more time at home with my family and it works around my full time job. I would recommend an online program if you are a motivated individual otherwise I would say to go to class.

Degree: Finance and Financial Management Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm very unsatisfied. It has done little to enhance my knowledge. I had a 3.42 GPA my first few months give or take about .03 points but got dropped because one teacher graded few assignments so finished with a low c abd my GPA dropped to a 2.68. I've had bad experiences with half the instructors. Everytime I get up to a 3 or higher they accuse me of plagiarism even though even I run through checker it rates at a zero or one percent similarities and everything is document therefore instead of getting decent grade I don't. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I didn't review when I applied but lately have and majority of people have more negative then positive to say.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

University of Phoenix's Masters in Public Administration (MPA) program is excellent. The coursework was paced appropriately and the content is indepth. The diverse faculty and their professional insights enhance the course. It is important to note that there is a tremendous amount of reading required. However, this is typical of any quality graduate program. Although many students find the cohort format daunting, the University of Phoenix has designed a system that allows students to benefit from the rotating course schedules and by rotating members within one's cohort.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Phoenix (UOP) is an excellent school for the working class adult to earn a degree in a expedited period of time. The hybrid online/on-site classroom setting is convenient and reasonable. The coursework is compacted into 6-week courses which could really be challenging to complete but not impossible. Instructors are credentialed and well-versed in their specialties. Final exams are all online and not very difficult to complete.

Degree: Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I did 3 years with University of Phoenix, and received both my Associates and Bachelors degree through the online program. I did very well in the classes, and I was able to secure a job with the county Juvenile Probation Department within 3 months of graduating!

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

What they do not tell you is that they will work your class schedule to where there is a class left over to where you are not 'full time status' and you will have to pay out of pocket for it. But every check they send of 'extra money' should have been saved for the extra class that is not covered. They do not tell you this. Its just another way for them to get more money out of you. Then when you have to drop out because you cannot afford to pay $1200.00 out of pocket they will send it to collections right away.

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

When I graduated from high school I was on my own and working two jobs. I had decided that I was not going to be able to go to a college campus full time and still be able to provide for myself. I decided that my best option was to take online classes. I began my degree in late 2010 and ended early 2014. Normally for an Associates degree you would only take 2 years to complete, but I still have alot of bumps along the way. My couselors were great. They understood what I was going through with changing jobs, moving to different states and just all around changes in my life. They worked with me every step of the way and working with me helped to complete and finish my degree. I am thankful for all the help I received and would recommend University of Phoenix to anyone that is in similar situation or just wants to go back to school and still be able to continue working and living their daily lives.

Degree: Medical Office Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

The University helped me step by step to completing my Associates Degree. They were very flexible with my full time work and single mother schedule. The online classes were very beneficial for my hectic schedule and both the Financial and Student Adviser were always there to answer all my questions. If it weren't for my employer offering a discount with another online school I would still be attending.

Degree: Human Services, General
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Phoenix is a great school. I have taken a lot from this University, that I will utilize once I join the work force. UOP has helped me to achieve my education goals, and has given me the tools to be successful in this world. I never dreamed of being educated until I had a chance to sit and talk with one of UOP admission advisers. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2012

I attended University of Phoenix online to further my career as a Cisco System Engineer, I had certifications from Cisco, Microsoft and Netware but had not completed my BS degree. University of Phoenix gave me the chance to complete my career, now I need to pay for the degree. Degrees are very expensive but there is a payoff, my are very encourage to go to college even more because of what they saw their 50 year old dad do.
