"University of Phoenix is a wonderful school, its main focus is its students. Teachers are motivated to have every student succeed because they understand they are preparing them for careers. Class sizes are small and the environment is professional. Coming to this school gives me hope of a better future, a better life, and a better career."

"University of Phoenix staff goes the extra mile to ensure that their student is successful in their chosen field of study. You get curiosity calls when it seems like you are having trouble in class. On the first day of class, you get a call to ask how the class went and how you feel about it. University of Phoenix also provides its students all necessary resources that they fell will be helpful in being successful in class."

"I have been so pleased with the University of Phoenix, they have made everything so easy in the registering process and my advisor checks in with me regularly. Of course the schedule works well for me, I work full time and I'm also a single mom to a 13 year old. Meeting on campus one night per week works best for me. The classes are challenging, but in a good way, I feel very engaged and the learning has snuck up on me, I am already feeling like I am starting to understand the process of counseling. I have a lot more to learn, but it is clicking and I am so proud that at 45 years old, I am back to school and excelling with a 4.0. I did not know if I remembered how to write a paper, but it came back, no problem. The professors are very accessible and encourage questions on assignments if there is confusion. Even outside of class they are happy to help. I have recently joined the Alpha Beta Honor Society, and I am looking forward to networking with others in the field there. I highly recommend University of Phoenix, especially to working adults. If you are like me and an "older student", you can do it!"

"University of Phoenix has an excellent set up for adults who work, raise children, are involved in activities, and are living life where day school is virtually impossible. One night a week is the common set up for programs presented at University of Phoenix which is perfect for those of us that want to pursue and complete graduate degree programs, but also have obligations in life which must be met. The teachers that I have had instruct the courses that I have taken in the program so far have been knowledgeable, helpful, and fair. I am grateful to have found a program that fits my busy lifestyle and that is preparing me for a career in counseling, along with preparing me to pursue a higher degree."

"I am currently pursuing a master's degree from Phoenix University of Ontario. The school is close and convenient for my busy lifestyle. Phoenix provides instructors who are working in the field of Counseling and Psychology. The experience has been great, especially for someone who use to go to the library and complete papers. I have not been to school for over twenty years but with the supported staff that are there for you to succeed if you want. The staff help to remove all of the fear I had with technology and writing. They provide assistance in every area of learning. It has been a blessing to my future endeavors and I look forward to conquering this next chapter in my life at 50."

"The University of Phoenix Southern California is a great choice for a working student. The graduate program of Marriage Family Therapy is a rigorous program because the program focuses on one class at a time. Classes are on campus and are every six weeks to eight week courses. The courses are taught by LMFTs or PHds. therefore an extremely high standard is expected. It is important to note that cohorts or learning teams are a requirement therefore it is important to learn to get along with different personalities and remain professionals. The great part of this graduate program is no thesis but be advise there is individual papers due every week which is the same as a thesis. Also there is learning team projects due almost ever week too. There is the rigor of two huge check points in the program and they are called portfolios. Portfolio I is the entrance into the program which is six weeks at the very beginning and is a competency for the program. Portfolio II is the midway check point if the student is mastering the classes and it is a tough experience and many people do not make it but the professors are supportive. The only negative issue with this type of program is the usage of e-books because in the Marriage Family Therapy field it is important to keep your books for reference."

"The graduate MSC/MFCT program offers the tools one needs to enter successfully into the counseling field. The program however, requires the individual to direct the learning experience. This program is geared toward those willing to do work inside and outside of class. It requires self-direction and committment."
