University of Phoenix Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1,042)
The university of Phoenix was tough at times did not receive a lot of interaction or explanation with the facilitator. However I found a way to finish many of the classes were interesting. I believe that you learn much more on your own because you are basically on your own the curriculum was fast passed this was real so if your a self starter, motivated and not a quitter try it out. The courses are expensive at the doctoral level your best bet is to study hard if you want to graduate. At the moment I do not hold the position I should hold with my DM degree but I hope I can move up at the company were I work or seek another company that will honor my degree.
I opened a charter middle school after earning my MBA. I felt University of Phoenix provided a meaningful, quality education. You get what you put into it; in other words if you apply yourself and finish your degree while putting in 110 percent, you should get a return on your educational investment for life!
Scholarships & funding is available to many students. There are so many degrees & certificates available to you! The instructors are there for you both on & off campus. There are many groups you can get involved in also both on & off campus! I started out with funding help, stayed focused and walked away with my bachelors.
I have learned a lot going to University of Phoenix and it was hands on.
I enjoyed it but at the same time I do not feel that it is valued by many employers. I am proud of myself but sometimes wish I gave more thought regarding my choice of school and study.
My degree from the University of Phoenix campus was easy to complete as a working adult. Their class schedules worked well for me. But they are a privately-owned, for-profit university, so they are expensive. I will be paying on my student loans for at least another decade.
This college was amazing!! I was able to get my degree from home at my pace!! I highly recommend this college!!
I loved online schooling and the staff was really helpful.
I am middle of the road with this school. It was recommended to me by an associate that had just received her master's degree. I did not have the problems with financial aid, but I did get a new academic adviser about every three or four months, and I am not sure why. Aside from those stipulations, the real thing that left me up in the air was the education. Sometimes the "facilitators" or engaging and teach, other times they might as well not even be there. It is a "learn on your own" kind of system, which is fine because I am a very self motivated learner who has some common sense. The most annoying thing is the other students. Some of these folks probably should take another run at high school before attempting any higher learning. I'm no Einstein, but the majority of UoP students put zero effort into their participatory posts and team projects (it worries me these people are entering the psychology field). I would spend hours backing my posts with research and it would often be discounted by a barrage of personal opinions or experiences that reek of Dunning Kruger effect. SO ANNOYING! It bums me out that I had to do online learning because I am stuck working and can not attend a brick and mortar school.
UoP gets a bad reputation. I had a great experience. The advisors cared. The teachers were there when needed. They have math and paper resources. There is an extensive library. I learned more than I expected. It is what you put into it. Just like with anything else. One example I can give is I received my Bachelor's within a few months of "Facebook memories" coming out. I immediately noticed that my posts from years ago had very bad grammar and spelling. I had improved without noticing. Another example, I had a family emergency. We didn't know how long this would take to resolve. The advisor made sure I had months off just in case. He periodically checked in and followed the situation. They are compassionate. Last example, I can be in a conversation and know with confidence that I know a fact. Something I learned from a book or teacher in school. If I don't know something I know where to look. This school is worth the time and effort. I'm looking forward to obtaining my Master's next.
