Student & Graduate Reviews (1,171)
I actually enjoyed my time as a student with the University of Phoenix. Although, it was enjoyable..it was a bit high in tuition, but overall, it allowed me to be able to work and complete school at the same time. I just wished I had more funds to complete school, however, it was great being a student with UOP
I really enjoyed attending the University of Phoenix Online Program. I was able to keep up with classes, work a full time job and be a single mommy to an amazing little girl. I felt very motivated because I knew the classes I was attending would be very beneficial to my future endeavors. My academic counselor and financial aide adviser were always available when I needed them which made me more secure. I would recommend this University to anyone interested in taking online classes.
The school is harder than an on-campus University because it is online they except more from you. They are always accessible with help via email, phone and/or chat. I got to meet people all over the world and felt like I was studying aboard. I still to this date keep in contact with the school via Twitter and hope this review enlist future students. I went to school late via society standards, but the experience was priceless and am glad I finally have a degree, which I put to great use. -Twitter@cjeter
Easy to understand how to post to conversations within the discussion board. Writing papers for class became easier as I begun to learn how to paraphrase articles. Instructors are awesome and will help you with anything!
As a single mom with a full time job, an online program was the only realistic way that I was going to be able to get my degree. I was so glad to have the opportunity to do that for myself through the University of Phoenix. I had completed my Associate's on campus through our local community college and transferred into University of Phoenix for my BA. It took me about 2 1/2 years. The best part was being able to take classes at my own pace, and take time off when I needed to. An online program definitely takes more self-discipline than a campus experience, but if you have the motivation it is well worth the time and money.
The online courses are tough to say the least, but students interact with other students in teams which prepares him or her for their career workplace. I had attained my associates degree from the same university, but in another field and have never regretted my decision to attend online education which is the wave of the future. University of Phoenix is highly accredited and offers many degree choices as well as student scholarships and various tools like workshops and resume creator to assist students along the path to a successful graduation. I highly recommend the University of Phoenix, especially for busy people who wish to further his/her career options.
I am a current new online student at UoP started in March. I think this school is good. Only problem is how expensive it is taking some courses overall I been getting good grades doing what I am suppose to do. I hope it all pays off and I can find a job right after obtaining my degree. I am excited already getting my certificate in EHR in 4 months and degree in Health Administration done with classes November 2015. It's not a bad school just focus and you will be done in no time. Good luck to all that's attending.
Disillusioned with the drone of a traditional university, I transferred to Phoenix and experienced ultimate fulfillment of my educational needs. This resulted from the superior faculty and their intimate knowledge of current trends in the industry and expertise with course content delivery. Very motivated for success, I completed the degree on time and with a nearly perfect GPA. Fellow learners who struggled or dropped out as with any school, seemed to expect a grade just for enrolling in a course. I am glad Phoenix has high academic standards.
I am almost done, just 9 more classes to go to earn my BS Business degree and they had to change the classroom format!!! I was so confused with this new classroom tool. I'm getting the hang of it now, and realize even more that this tool was not thought through well. It is very confusing, not intuitive, and actually hinders productive communication for learning. Why did they get rid of the old classroom? It worked just fine. If they wanted to change the environment, they sure did a poor job of vetting new software.
The two good things I can say with all certainty: (1) I learned how to write really well with all of the weekly essays, and (2) I learned how to work in a virtual team. The skinny on my bad experience: First, they make high-pressure sales, so watch out for predatory behavior. Second, the quality of education received compared to the tuition rate is not worth it. Enroll with a traditional institution that has an online program instead. Third, I had to drop out due to errors made by the financial aid department. They rescinded part of my student loan, which resulted in a balance that I had to pay out of pocket. They would not allow me to continue taking classes until the balance was paid and would not negotiate a repayment plan. The errors occurred a year or more prior, but they did not catch them until their audit time. I paid the balance with a Sallie Mae private student loan with a high rate of interest. At that time (2006) University of Phoenix didn't offer enough scholarships for its students and I didn't qualify for state grants or many other private scholarships.
