Degree: Human Services, General
Graduation Year: 2014

University of Phoenix is a great program for nontraditional students. The flexibility in achieving my degree is the only reason I was able to finish. My academic advisor and financial advisor worked closely with me to insure that I finished my degree. They helped me numerous times when I had to change my schedule last minute due to family commitments.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2014

The school is an excellent choice if you do not have the availability of a vehicle. Through the online program you can complete all your studies from the comfort of your home while saving on driving time and gasoline cost. However, they advertise as highly flexible but this I would not say is true. You have weekly assignments to complete and depending on your schedule these may be difficult to complete on time which means your grades will be suffering from those which are turned in late. Each instructor is different about what they will and will not allow when it comes to assignments. Some are understanding and some not so much. Overall, I would say be prepared to read your little heart out because if you do not it is impossible to pass these classes.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2011

I was in the Accounting program and receive my Associate's degree. I honestly feel that the courses for this program were good but sometimes the structure of the programs was not good for working people. I also realized that there programs are just too expensive. I won't say anything else about the program though because overall it was not bad.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I have tried other online schools and in house campuses, but the University of Phoenix has worked for me the best. I began with my Bachelor's degree while I was in the Army traveling and having my first three kids. After completion of my degree, I realized that I needed more to get the job I really want to work, for the money I wish to make. So I am now attending UOP for the Master's program, which will also prepare me to take the certification for it. I am excited to complete my degree to work in a fulfilling career.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2014

My three year experience at the University of Phoenix taught me things I am still absorbing. I have learned more about myself than any other subject, and the abilities I have to learn and grow. I have received a promotion since I started school and also plan to attend graduate school within the next few months. My experience at the University of Phoenix affected my choice of career change as well. When I began, I had not considered a Master's Degree, but now, I want to "Pay it Forward" by obtaining my Master's in English Arts and Creative Writing so that i can teach online for my next career (retirement-ha!). I recommend the university to everyone I talk to and at least two of my friends have started going back to school because of my positive experience. Online higher education is the future and it is here!

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

As a mother of three, being able to pursue my Bachelor's Degree online was such a wonderful option. I was able to continue substitute teaching full time, raise my children, and still have the time to devote to my studies. I recommend University of Phoenix to those who are unable to be in a classroom full time. The educational experience was wonderful and I feel prepared to enter the work force this fall.

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2013

UoPX was fantastic. Worked with me every step of the way. I was able to complete all my classes on time and with little struggle. Had all the resources I needed at my fingertips, no need to buy extra books or supplies! Loved the financial aid team and my personal academic advisor was a great help.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2012

University of Phoenix is a very good university. The faculty are competent and they seem to really care about how each student does in their class. I received compliments when it was deserved and correction when it was necessary. The instructors seem to notice and value hard work and effort and rewards it with good grades and praise. I enjoyed most of my time at University of Phoenix but it was not easy. If potential students are looking for an easy A they will not find it at UOPX. The degree program I studied was general psychology and I enjoyed the courses. The curriculum was thorough and relevant to my career interests. My biggest complaint is with their financial aid department. I feel they are not as well trained as other members of the faculty because the reps I dealt with were not up-to-date on the latest rules and regulations relating to federal guidelines regarding student aid. Unfortunately, I have not finished completing my bachelor's degree because I ran out of federal funding, so I have to find other means to finish paying for college. I acknowledge that as an adult it was primarily up to me to make sure that I had the funding to complete my education. However, UOPX financial aid reps could have helped by understanding and alerting students to the upcoming issues with their financial aid and any guidelines the students are not aware of because they are the professionals and it is their job. It would keep students from being caught off guard as they reached their financial aid limits and those students could already be seeking additional aid or putting money aside to complete their education. Otherwise, those students would find their education interrupted and their plans put on hold as they scramble to find the necessary funds.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2012

It was the best experience. It allowed my to earn my degree without it interfering with my family and work. Plus it had some many tools and support systems that allowed you to succeed in your studies.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2014

The people that work for UoP from my academic adviser to my Financial Aid adviser have been pleasant to work with. This includes needing and being allowed to make weekly payments out of pocket so that I can finish my degree. The program is pretty decent I do not know yet it it will get the job I really want but it does cover a lot of information in my field.
