"University of Phoenix was a great online college! I can't say enough good things about the whole experience. My advice is to make sure that any student attending this college is great with time management otherwise you will fail the classes. Schedule your life around the schooling."

"My overall experience with University of Phoenix was very positive. I didn't always love every instructor, but I felt that I did receive a quality education and gained skills that helped me in my current position as well as my future career. I began my bachelors program with six credits so my previous college experience was limited but I was pleased with the small class sizes and the group of people that matched my current life experience. While the workload of the accelerated classes may not work for everyone I appreciated being able to focus on one class at a time and being able to immediately relate the content to real life situations. I have committed to continuing on with education and have currently enrolled in my MBA program at University of Phoenix and so far my first class has been a really positive experience."

"My experience with UoP has been fairly good as it fit the need of working parent. My nights and weekends were filled with reading chapters and writing papers each week due to the compressed schedule. By keeping up with the assignments and reading the material, I maintained a 3.69 GPA. All but one credit was taken at an on-campus classroom rather than online. I did not find the online structure to provide what I needed as a student. I like the interaction and feel that part of what is being paid for is the lecture experience... I would NOT pay for this degree if it were entirely online. The classroom experience was a mixed bag but reflected my own personal experience. The students were working adults although I found the diversity a bit lacking. Not cultural or gender diversity but rather that most of my classmates were veterans and it would have been a better experience with groups with a greater variety of backgrounds. My college experience may be unique but I found some level of freedom to focus on the lecture and learning. I did not worry about grades but focused on the content and its application to my profession. I'm currently an IT Manager in a large organization and found that my director's comments suggested growth as a manager which I attribute in part to the UoP management courses and a lot of support from my senior corporate leadership. I would like to have seen a bit more edginess from the instructors."

"I pleasantly enjoyed my experience with University of Phoenix. The advisors both academic and financial make the experience seamless. The curriculum for a business degree is on point with real life business experiences and has helped me excel in my current role and opened the door for many more experiences. The time you as an individual out into learning will determine how much you take away from University of Phoenix. Upon graduating, University of Phoenix offers an online network of employers eager to hire a Phoenix graduate and a continuous network of communication with peers who are in the workforce. University of Phoenix offers resume training and several other after graduation tools to help excel careers. I would recommend University of Phoenix to anyone interested in post secondary education."

"University of Phoenix made my return to college pleasant and stress-free. Upon enrollment, you are assigned to a team of individuals who ensure that your class schedule is manageable and allows you to learn at your own pace. The financial advisors I've had have been responsive and helped me to navigate what can sometimes be a difficult road to ensure that my student loans cover the cost of my continued education."

"This school is not just a school. The staff makes you feel important and that they really care about your progress. Counselors will reach out to you often to check in, but if you have any question at all, you can call or email and someone will get back to you if not that day, by the following business day. The online courses are not as hard to learn as it may sound. Reading material, explaining your understandings, and relating to your current or previous experience is how you will learn. The instructors of the course are all knowledgeable and explain things in a way everyone can understand. You are encouraged to be engaged and work in team settings, but it is fun. You all take turns volunteering to structure projects and set weekly team deadlines. Ive been with the University of Phoenix as an online student since 2012, when I was starting my associates degree. Now I am graduated with my bachelors degree and still attending the University of Phoenix to pursue my Masters degree. This school is so great, even my grandmother graduated with her degree from this school. It is easy to navigate on the system and enroll in programs. You are assigned a team of staff to ensure you are equipped with everything and all the tools you need to be successful. If you are considering an online school, go to the University of Phoenix, they will help you achieve your educational goals without any stress of hassle. I am grateful to be a Phoenix."

"I have learned a lot of information and made some great connections with instructors that have provided me with the tools that I needed to continue my career. Obtaining my degree has allowed me to experience my career at another, satisfying level. When I first started with the University of Phoenix, I started attending at a campus, but due to life circumstances I had to withdraw. Upon returning I was conflicted about whether or not should attend a campus or online, and I decided to try the online environment and it truly fit my schedule and allowed me to be a mom and career woman at the same time. I must admit there were some challenges, but I was able to push past them and graduate with my Bachelors Degree. Now am in the process of obtaining my Masters using the online platform."

"University of Phoenix is the perfect fit for just about any kind of student. What I love about U of P is that they understand and embrace that every student is different and has a unique style in which they learn. So rather then expecting every student to fit into one box they offer several ways for students to absorb the material. This is truly exclusive to U of P. Also the university offers live on demand labs and tutoring where you can find help anytime you need. Finally, even as an online student I still felt very much apart of the university community, that I was valued and supported every step of the way."

"These people are so incredibly full of it....... They cost twice as much as any other school and they lie about everything. I "graduated" back in June, its now mid October and i still have nothing to show for it..... I found out after my "last class" that I then had to take all these additional proficiency courses which I was never informed of until the end. Then they had the nerve to charge $50 for my diploma which will take another 50 days to get to me..... what?!!! They didn't already make $42,000 from me in tuition? Carrot and a stick if you ask me, they are just trying to figure out how much more money they can suck from me."

"I started my degree program when I was 39 years old. I was scared and worried, that because it was online that I would not be able to do the work or keep up. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it ended up being for me, and how much help was offered throughout each of my degree programs. The teachers are very helpful and always present when needed, as are the Academic advisers and Financial advisers. It turned out that the online program was just the right for me and my busy schedule. If you are looking to go to school and need something that works with your work and family schedule, then online classes are the way to go, and University of Phoenix is a great school. I have been offered many new and exciting business ventures since graduation."
