University of Phoenix Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1,248)
The University of Phoenix is the perfect solution for the non-traditional who wants to go back to school but has other commitments in life. The flexibility of the program, course choices, scheduling, etc. made it possible for me to work full-time, raise a family, take care of ailing, aging parents, and earn a degree. The learning teams gave me an opportunity to make lifelong friends while learning the importance of collaboration and diversity. Because all of the instructors also work in the field they teach, learnings from every class could be immediately put into effect in my career. I owe my most recent job promotion and pay raise to my University of Phoenix degree and I cannot wait to see what I can achieve once I complete my Graduate degree.
I read a lot of bad reviews. My honest opinion is that the school helpled me with my goal of deceive my bachelors. I was a busy mother and i feel online courses helped me i could get on when i wanted n submit work. We had to work n teams and it was something new to me, but over all worked out great. I even took rime off a few times during my two yrs of school. If your ready for a degree and ready to be dedicated then i would recommend coming here i loved online.
I think UOP is okay. I've been a student with them for a long time. As a kid, there were the only adult alternative school I heard of and when I failed to take the SAT, they were the first to accept me. Collegiate programs are already exclusive settings. One really can not acquire too many occasions of "A Life Interrupted" or else...that's the door. I believe most rankings are really based on the initial experience one has with an organization or person(s). I've had counselors I've liked and then severely disliked, as well as professors. Now, I just figure that's life. I finally graduated with a degree after a long hard eight years and now I'm going to pursue a Master's from them. My advice for anyone looking to further their education with special circumstances would be to call around and ask questions from learning institutions you feel will best fit your needs. Be specific in what you are looking for or with what will benefit you the most. Ask specific questions such as, "What would be my overall study time for each week in regards to the program I want to enroll in or is it possible to have two full time jobs and still be successful in the program?" In some cases, the answer may be vague or unsatisfactory, so then I would suggest asking someone different and if still unsatisfied; applying to an institution that you feel meet your personal needs. College is expensive no matter where one applies. All schools hope to enroll students that will grant a favorable reflection, so be focused. Don't be hesitant to ask questions that may affect your ability to remain in good standing with any university and try to plan ahead if at all possible to avoid any additional fees or financial hardship. The programs with UOP normally starts off rather light and then progressively becomes challenging. I hope this helps :)
My instructors did not give me help where I needed it, some even did the work and just had us submit it. They did not teach how to utilize the resources they provided or how to access them. I had a new adviser every couple of months and in my last year the school messed up my Fafsa and put me on an LOA repeatedly, did not tell me they couldn't process my funds while they had me on this LOA and made my last class take me a year to complete.
University of Phoenix was all online for me. It was a fun degree to pursue, but almost too easy. Now that I am working on my Master's degree, it feels like I missed out on some pertinent information like neuroscience. But for a Bachelor's degree I still think it was a decent school and was very accommodating. It was easy to get to Financial Services or anything else you need; just a simple phone call or email away.
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.
At University of Phoenix, Advanced education has never been more open, and there have never been more choices for each kind of spending plan, learning style, and objective. Having such a variety of choices is great,You need to choose where to seek after your objectives. It's a significant choice, and it can be elusive quality and germane data to help you on your way. Hence, I felt University of Phoenix gives the most momentum research and audits on the best academic choices .
University of Phoenix greatly prepared me to enter into the health care field. UOP focused on team work through learning teams. The professors were all active health care professionals and shared their experiences with us. Their emphasis on presenting and group work has prepared me to enter into the health care field.
I thought that this university was not credible and I was scared that a job would not recognize a degree from this institute as good, however I have not had that issue. This school is great for those who like me had a family but also needed to work. Online classes are difficult and it takes a person who is self motivated to complete an online degree.
I received a great education and had wonderful teammates while attending. I would recommend UoP to a friend, but one must research first and to know what you would like to do before applying is important. Of course, improvements are necessary in order to compete with other Universities. I graduated in 2012.
