I completed my Bachelor's in Business Administration/Finance at the University of Phoenix in 2011. In addition, I am currently fulfilling a Master's Degree at University of Phoenix within the same field. Although it was a challenging road while completing my Bachelors as I had a full time job, and was taking care of my household, it was an exciting and amazing journey. Staff was friendly and classes were fun and I learned all the necessary tools that helped me become the professional I am today. I liked the university so much that I am currently completing a Masters as well, and still have the same great feeling. I recommend the University of Phoenix to anyone. All I can say is to never give up on your dreams. I had the dream of completing a Bachelors, and although it was a tough journey I fulfilled my dream, and who knew then I was going to be studying a Masters as well. The Journey may be rough, but don't quit, and you'll see your Dreams come to pass.
Selecting a college can be an intimidating and sometimes daunting task. As a single mother, I wanted to ensure that I was choosing a college that not only met my needs but my son's needs as well. You see, my son needs me to be there to help him with his homework, attend practices and games, and to play an active role in his upbringing. University of Phoenix provided us with the opportunity to complete our homework side by side, attend classes from the bleachers during practices, as well as the opportunity to be the positive role model that my son needed. Our alma mater plays a vital role in preparing us for our future careers but also helps shape the individuals we are to become. University of Phoenix does this by providing students with knowledgeable educators and a caring supporting staff. I have so much confidence in the University of Phoenix that I am currently working on my third degree and could not be more satisfied . If you are looking for a college that understands the struggle of getting supper on the table, driving the kids to practice, and still finding time to complete homework assignments then UoP is for you.
The University of Phoenix is a great college. I can say this because I have attended University of Phoenix for six years. I had the support of my academic advisor, financial advisor, professors, and the Alumni Association. I would highly recommend UOP.
I'm still actually going to this school, and it's a joke. I know myself and a few of my friends have been waiting months for or disbursements. They keep changing the reasoning to way we are still waiting. Honestly I rather know the truth then be given the run around. We have all talk to other collages and students and they all tell us that the University of Phoenix is bad news, That it's about numbers not the students well being.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I returned to school after a 20 year break in my education. As a husband, father of four, police officer, and high school football coach, time is one of my biggest assets. The University of Phoenix allowed me to obtain a quality degree around my schedule. The curriculum was significant to my profession. Course materials were even available through the school app, making the opportunity to study or participate, as simple as opening your smartphone. The instruction was provided by leaders in the criminal justice community, who were able to not only instruct the class, but provide first hand, real world experience, that was relevant to the subject matter. My only regret was that I waited so long to make the decision to go back to school because I thought I wouldn't have time. The experience was so positive that I plan to continue my education and obtain my Master's Degree.
The University of Phoenix is the perfect school for those who don't plan to have the traditional college experience. Life happens to some of us before we are able to finish the degree and that is where the University of Phoenix comes into play. Defiantly a great choice that I am happy about.
The University of Phoenix programs was designed for students who are also working. After I got my AA through UoP, I was promoted to Team Lead at my company and eventually to Production Supervisor. Both positions required many hours of work, sometimes over sixty hours per week. The flexibility of the program allowed me to return to school and graduate with my B.S. in communications and technology and now I am working towards my MBA. The online program is definitely the way to go for anybody who wants to get their degree while working full time, and still have time to spend with their family.
The University of Phoenix is not a good college to attend. The instructors are not supportive of students. They intentionally fail student. Have you have any issue with your classes, they will not resolve it, but they just want you to repeat the classes and take you money. Please do not go to this university. It is a disaster.
I believe the University of Phoenix is a great school. It offers flexible scheduling for us students that work while attending school. The interactive online classroom allows me to stay accountable to my class assignments. Team assignments allow me to learn to communicate and work with others . The program also incorporates two field experiences that will give me hands on learning opportunities to explore my field of study.
When I decided to obtain my Bachelors degree from the University of Phoenix, I was excited and nervous. However when I met with the campus student advisor he was friendly and patient while I asked a ton of questions. That was the last time I was pleased with my experience, as shortly thereafter he was no longer with the school, and I was not informed ahead of time. During my four years of attendance, the academic and financial advisor turnover was substantial and we were never informed about the change ahead of time. There were some very talented instructors unfortunately they were outnumbered by those who were just teaching as a second source of income. I cannot say that I am regretful for signing up, as I did accomplish my goal of graduating with my degree. I just wish the university was more organized and communicated more.
