Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018
"The University of Phoenix is an amazing school to attend if you have a busy life. What I liked the most about this school is that I felt like I was still able to get stuff done at work and at home without stressing myself out to much. I am the first in my family to obtain a degree and I strongly believe it was because of the friendly school environment and the amazing staff at the University of Phoenix. I just gradate with my B.A. and I will be starting my masters next month all thanks to the confidence I now have in myself thanks to this university."

"I should have read reviews period! The enrollment reps and instructors are great along with the online format. BUT the financial department is a joke! You get told over and over different things that aren't correct and then next thing you know your being pulled from classes because they didn't get documents that you had sent multiple times. So now me, a straight A student, and I'm suppose to be held back and wait for classes while these idiots wait for the same documents I sent. Which causes me to fall behind and graduate late! I've invested a lot of time already and it makes me sick to deal with incompetent people and ones that make you suffer for their mistake! At least own up to your faults and don't mess with someone else's life! Way to encourage people to stay in your school!"

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018
"It is worth every second, I have to admit that I was worried in the beginning, however throughout the process I have met many people that have received either their bachelor's or higher from UoP, and are doing extremely well in their profession. It is all about the work you put into it regardless of the university you attend."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017
"I attended the U of P from 2015 through Feb of 2017. My experiences with the instructors and students was diverse and interesting. In the beginning I did not like the team assignments but found that by the time I was in my senior year, I preferred the team assignments over the personal assignments. I work in prisons and can honestly say that I have used my BS in Organizational Security and Management quite frequently. I am currently researching on-line universities to further my education in pursuit of a Masters Degree and am seriously considering U of P because of the positive experience that I had in obtaining my Bachelors. My only issue is the cost. U of P is one of the costlier schools. I have read many negative reviews about the school but cannot say I saw any of what they are saying."

"University of Phoenix Online was a great way to complete my BS degree as a working single mom. I was able to complete my degree at my pace. I also enjoyed the team project approach which is real world based. The team projects simulated just how working with peers in the workforce can have it's challenges and rewards. Overall University of Phoenix worked out extremely well for me and my educational needs."

"The online program is a great option for people that have limited time in life due to their life circumstances . The counselors are helpful and make sure to communicate with you on a regular basis. The online classes are simple to navigate. When I started school, I was a single mother of four and worked two jobs, I am now almost finished with my bachelors degree and will be working towards opening up my own agencies here in the future. I am only able to create these future plans because of the online program I attended with the consistent help of the counselors that helped me along the way."

"I graduated from UOP in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in IT. That degree helped me obtain a great IT position in management. Fast forward many years later, I signed up for their online MBA program because of the wonderful experience I had as an undergrad, and the fact that their MBA program will definitely allow me to grow professionally. This school is fantastic and I have nothing but great praise for them. Their B.S. program was amazing and I was able to apply what I learned in class to real world scenarios. I am so excited to be starting their MBA program because I know the experience will be the same. Disregard the negative comments about this Univeristy, it's a wonderful college!!"

Graduation Year: 2016
"The University of Phoenix was a great experience for me personally because I am a mother, military spouse, employed and a volunteer. The online courses allowed me to interact with other people in my situation, therefore making better understanding relationships. I was able to achieve everyday activities listed and still earn my bachelors degree, especially always moving from duty station to another. The school was very understanding of my affiliation to the military and worked with me every step of the way."

"I wish I would have really payed attention to all the reviews on this school when it comes to the fiance department it is a complete night mare. Then they expect you to focus on your education when they have your finances all screws up. I will not recommend this school to anyone just go to regular community college if you can"

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2012
"I took in person classes. Online work was homework and out of class work to be done for the next class. It was regimented. It taughtbin real time with real time issues and tech. We were forced to do public speaking,presentations and it helped. It is very good for the working professional. I was already established in my career and won a scholarship to finally finish my undergrad. Its not a degree mill. If you do not do the work you wont pass. Simple. It has changed since my time yet it helped me a lot. Financial aid was the best I ever dealt with when I had to use my own funds. Simple and easy. Unlike ALL the brick and mortars I attended prior. People talk down about U of P because it forced brick an mortars to change the business model they had. Education in tge US is all about money. Frankly,most brick and mortars are very behind. Teaching dead knowledge and charging you over the top for it. They view your debt as a cost of doing business. Its all about getting YOUR money. U of P was upfront,straight forward and provided a program with direct results for those needing work. No brick an mortar did that at all. Unless you were on your parents dime. Side note- almost all of my profs were profs at brick and mortars near. TCU,SMU A&M. They themselves saw why everyone hated U of P- because they shook the status quo of brick and mortars and the student loan debt racket. My career and path since tgen worked great for me."
