When I became a single parent of two young daughters, I attempted to complete my bachelor's degree on many occasions but was unsuccessful. My school schedule was not collaborating with my work and parenting responsibilities. Motivation and determination to find another way, led me to discovering the University of Phoenix. After speaking with an enrollment counselor, I was very satisfied with the online method of classes. The only concern I had was the cost for my program and how I was going to afford it. University of Phoenix assigns a financial counselor to each student along with an academic counselor. These counselors were with me for the entire program and I was able to focus on every course. UOP gave me the opportunity to complete my BS in Health Administration because of their method of teaching class online. I was able to work a full-time job and a second job part-time, and attend my daughter's school functions and games. The convenience of online courses was an option I could not resist. I graduated in 2008 and my career took off. I am currently back in school for a dual Master's degree in Health Administration Management/Business Management with a concentration in Information Technology. University of Phoenix is an innovative way of learning but I just wish the tuition was a little more affordable.
I am a single mother and I was working a full time job so it was hard for me to be in school full time, work, and raise my son. With UOP I was able to go to school and still do those things. I had a great experience with UOP. They were attentive and helpful counselors, the teacher were hands on and willing to help, they have been in the business for a long time, and will respond to your co concerns.
Scholarships & funding is available to many students. There are so many degrees & certificates available to you! The instructors are there for you both on & off campus. There are many groups you can get involved in also both on & off campus! I started out with funding help, stayed focused and walked away with my bachelors.
I have learned a lot going to University of Phoenix and it was hands on.
I enjoyed it but at the same time I do not feel that it is valued by many employers. I am proud of myself but sometimes wish I gave more thought regarding my choice of school and study.
My degree from the University of Phoenix campus was easy to complete as a working adult. Their class schedules worked well for me. But they are a privately-owned, for-profit university, so they are expensive. I will be paying on my student loans for at least another decade.
This college was amazing!! I was able to get my degree from home at my pace!! I highly recommend this college!!
I loved online schooling and the staff was really helpful.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in English from the University of Phoenix. I needed a career, not a job. I worked full time 12hr shifts. I have a wife and 4 children at home. My youngest angel has cerebral palsy and has therapies four times a week as well as a team of doctors (with associated appointments) to juggle. University of Phoenix gave me a quality education on my very tight schedule. I honestly did not know if I could do it, but I needed a change in my life, so I could provide better for my family. I did my research on online schools. I saw the negative press. Still, going to school in a traditional setting would have a been a failure for me. I had already tried it. So I took a chance on the University of Phoenix. This past February I received my Bachelor's Degree. I enjoyed my time there so much there, I have returned to get my Master's in Education. I will be forever grateful for the University of Phoenix for giving me the opportunity to earn a degree. I am very proud to be a Phoenix.
All the classes that I took at UOP were taught by professionals in the field of study and Instructors work in every area of law enforcement and provide practical and real-life examples of subject matter. Instructors will provide leads on possible career opportunities within their departments and agencies they work with. Course material is challenging and provides fundamental understanding of topics, anyone with a loaded work schedule can easily manage the once a week class. Courses run 5-6 weeks depending on the subject and require in class attendance once a week for four hours, classes are comprised of individual assignments and collaborative team assignments. Each week reading and assignments are assigned, as well as research for the final paper as the class progresses. Class size can vary from 6 - 25 students and the instructor have plenty of time and opportunity to answer all questions. Overall this is an excellent program for people working full-time and trying to go to school, administrators and instructors are both understanding and helpful every step of the way.
