University of Phoenix Reviews

I just completed my Bachelor's Degree in Accounting, and it was very pleasant - challenging but pleasant. I made many friends during my four years at the University of Phoenix, and I must admit that the advisors and professors were very skilled (most of whom had a CPA or Ph.D. and worked in the field). Overall, I did 40 courses that expanded my knowledge in accounting, finance, economics, and management. However, the time and energy took its toll. In the end, my final GPA was 3.93. My advice to anyone considering this university is to remember that it is a university. Yes, you have the convenience of it being online; however, it requires a lot of discipline, study and research, personal devotion, and money. Ideal for professionals and people with time constrictions.
The online program for me allowed the flexibility that I needed to continue working full time. I learned more than I ever anticipated possible through an online program. The professors were very professional and created an environment that was very conducive to learning. I was returning to school after a break of approximately 16 years. I was very nervous being a non traditional student but I found the advisors and faculty to be very accommodating. I was not in a situation where I could stop work to attend class. I also travel all over the country for my current career and being able to log in and work in the classroom 24/7 allowed me to be successful. I was so proud of my achievement I am now entering the Masters Program at the University of Phoenix. If you are considering an online program and wondering if you can find one that encourages a challenging environment that cultivates growth in many areas, this is your answer.
The education I received at University of Phoenix was great! The professors were highly educated and talented working professionals. I appreciated the design and structure of the courses and wish they were more academically challenging. Overall, a wonderful school to attend.
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 would advise anyone considering attending UoPx to really consider if they are willing to dedicate the time that it takes to excel in your classes. I am enjoying my time at UoPx and I graduated this past May with my Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice and minor in Cyber crimes. My academic advisors are usually the absolute best. They would follow up with me periodically to make sure that I was okay and to track my progress in the program. I was able to cut a year off of my time in pursuing this degree my taking by transferring college credits from an community college I attend before coming to UoPx. My financial aid advisors never slack I have no complaints. The staff are very friendly as care about you as a person and a student. They provide timely feedback on assignments as well. The only negative about UoPx is the learning teams. In the beginning, the learning teams were horrible but as I moved into my core curriculum where people were serious about their education, I thoroughly enjoyed working with my teams. I would rate UoPx a 4.7/5 stars on professionalism.
The University of Phoenix has been amazing. I completed my bachelor's degree and am currently in progress of my graduate degree. The staff and faculty all have experience in the field of study. They have great advise, and knowledge to help the students further their education in their field of study. The College Campus chairs are easy to reach, and always willing to help! I would highly recommend the University of Phoenix to any inquiring students.
University of Phoenix is a great school for working adults. The school prepares you to go directly into the workforce. They have learning teams that teach you how to work with others on projects. The school is on the expensive side, however it is worth it. I am now getting my masters in Marriage Family Therapy from University of 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.
I really enjoy attending the University of Phoenix. I have learned so much about myself and met many different people over the years. I have learned how to work together with others in a team setting and whenever I need help with something the school has the resources available to point me in the right direction. You will never feel alone or helpless because your academic and financial advisor are there to assist with any questions or concerns you may have. Even though my classes were on line I learned just as much as someone sitting in a traditional classroom setting. I have never had any issues with the University and now I am enrolled again for the masters program. I have been in health care for over 20 years and this degree with help me prepare for the next level in my life. Once I finish the masters program I will start working on my career. I would recommend the University of Phoenix to anyone who wants to get a good education and can't sit in the classroom this would be the best school for you.
Like any online University, even the ones associated with a big name brick and mortar ones, you only get out of it what you put in. If you apply yourself and work with your classmates you will learn and grow. The faculty are experienced in the real world and come from all sectors of private industry. Personally, I enjoyed my experience with UoP and I believe it helped me do my job better and grow professionally.
