Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

With the way the world of technology changes everyday the information technology program I am taking at the University of Phoenix will have me in the right place where I want and need to be when I graduate in late 2017. The interaction that I have with my instructors and other students gives me the comfort level that I can do this and that I am ready for the changes in technology that happens everyday.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending the University of Phoenix has been one of the best choices I have made. The courses are interesting and very informative. The Healthcare Administration with an emphasis on Management has been very challenging for me. I chose to do the online course because of the flexibility that it busy working parents. I am currently already a healthcare professional, but I wanted a degree that would help me get into management or advance into other careers. The teachers are great and I have been fortunate to get awesome academic counselors. I would recommend this college for the individual who finds it difficult to fit into on campus schedules.

Degree: Education, General
Graduation Year: 2016

I couldn't speak higher of this institution. I obtained my degree online and you seriously have to do your share of work when you're online. Classes were fast paced and challenging even for my level of experience. I was able to apply previous college credits from another university and my knowledge in a foreign language to pass a test for credit in language arts. My academic advisers were absolutely fantastic in meeting my personal needs and went beyond my expectations in helping me graduate quickly so I could advance in my career. Never did I feel like a number. The cost was extremely reasonable for the quality of education. I loved everything about my experience at Phoenix and when I'm ready to continue, I'll look nowhere else.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

University of Phoenix helped me develop my intellectual ability. I was a stay at home mom the first two years while obtaining my associates online. The It was hard, lots of papers and discussions at 2 classes at a time. I did not do very well. I went back for my bachelors in business on campus and I excelled. I loved my professors as they were all working in the field they were teaching. One of my teachers worked for United Nations, others owned their own multi million dollar businesses and so on and so forth. I loved the opportunities that were given to me. I have also had no problems obtaining employment with my degrees. As I have been looking at getting my Masters I have seen that UOP is not much more expensive than my local state colleges.

Degree: Software Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that to many people emphasize on the inability to attain a brick and mortar feel from the university of phoenix. In my opinion learning should be in the hands of the learner and not placed as a burden on the instructor. I had a great experience while attaining my bachelor degree from the University of Phoenix and would recommend attending this college to anyone. Secondly I would like to address the fact that people say this degree will not help you get a job and is worthless. To be honest, if you expect to work at a fast food restaurant or a field unrelated to your degree plan then yes it will be very hard for you to get a job fresh out of college with limited experience. In my opinion, regardless of what college you go to it is important to work in a related field while receiving an education. I am happy to say that while attending the University of Phoenix I grew my career in technical support to the maximum capacity landing me a position in my company's QA department helping with beta development (no degree). After graduation it took around six months to attain a position as a software engineer that I am happy to say boosted my income from 45,000/yr at my old job to 80,000/yr at my new job (degree). So my advice is to not put the burden of finding a new job on your degree regardless of what college you go to. Instead focus on growing yourself and having your degree as a ticket to more opportunity. Lastly, to everyone who's misguided information produces a hatred toward University of Phoenix my opinion is to obtain an education in your own way and stop bad mouthing others who are doing the same. And for everyone out there who is at UOP and wondering if they will be able to get a job with their degree, YES you can. The software company where I work has several engineers with a degree from UOP and are getting paid the same as others from top name universities.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2011

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.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2014

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.

Degree: Health and Medical Administrative Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

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.
