Jolene - 12/16/2016
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017
"I'm currently a student at University of Phoenix. I would not recommend this school to anyone I know, not anymore. The financial advisors are terrible. The instructors were good, and the reason I stay until my currently class. She graded me base on her standard and not Phoenix university's standards. There was no engagement between me and her. According the the academic advisor she doesn't have to answer to anything I post... I don't know why I'm in the class giving her my money. I'm currently a student who is looking for a different college to attend."

"University of Phoenix's online degree program allowed me to purse a dream while working full time. The ease of online learning was lots of work but paid off as I achieved an education that has helped me advance in my career. I am now about to purse an education through a graduate program."

"This school is great for the working adult who wants to achieve a higher education degree. It is not easy like many others think that have no completed it. It provides a real education with teacher's that work in the field. With that being said the conversations and the real life application is on point."

"Don't start asking questions about your loans and grants you will be given different information and then they give you the run around.Terrible experience trying to withdraw now and get back into traditional classes. Classes are high as well as resource fee and all instructors aren't qualified. If there are other options use them this school is terrible"

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016
"I think University of Phoenix, is perfect for individuals who have a very busy life. Throughout the time that I was in school, I worked a full time job, tried to take care of things at my household, and was also working on becoming healthier. I was able to do all three things with no negative impact on my grades. They would contact me and make sure I was doing everything in my power to be successful throughout the program. I was inducted into an honor society based on my grade point average and my major. That was one of my proudest accomplishments to date. I'm very thankful that I decided to go back to school and pursue my degree through University of Phoenix. It is very true when they say they want to help you succeed and will be there for you every step of the way. That's one of the main reasons behind me choosing them as my Graduate School as well."

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."
