"The University of Phoenix online was a great school and great program for me. I can't understand why some people here say that the teachers were not helpful. I received both a MA degree and a credential and NEVER had a teacher not do their job. They were extremely attentive, did what they were supposed to do, etc. I did more work for this degree than I did for my Bachelor's degree. The work is REAL and you read a lot and must do a lot of reports, power points, and group work."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016
"Two and a half years ago, I made a decision to return to college. No direction, no path to follow, my history fell on the Emergency Services, Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement. After spending numerous days looking for the right path, I stumbled on the University of Phoenix. I researched and read reviews, but more importantly, I called them. I was enrolled at the same time, had the financial information both Federal and private loan taken care of and started my first class less than a week later. The individual spent a couple hours getting me going and I personally appreciate him for taking that time. That was just the beginning. Each of the classes I have been enrolled in have been challenging and the individuals that are participating as well have been a diverse and creative bunch of people. The individuals that have guided me along the way, financial advisors and academic advisors have also been front and center in my degree. They contact me by phone or email, just to check up on me. The whole process I would recommend to anyone who may be thinking about going to school. If by chance someone is reading this and questioning the University of Phoenix, call them, do not hesitate. I am 42 years old, had been out of school for 20 plus years, I will be graduating with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice and a GPA of 3.89. It is not easy and it takes some work, you only get out of it what you put into it."

"I really enjoyed my four year journey with the University of Phoenix as they allowed me to continue my education while maintaining full time employment. The faculty is really amazing and caring when it comes to their students, if I had to do it all over again, University of Phoenix will still be my first choice."

Victoria Cao - 9/12/2016
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013
"I attended University of Phoenix after being unsure of what I wanted to do, career wise. When I completed my education, I had hesitation of going back to school to further my career. I was a branch manager by the time I graduated and felt that I had already accomplished a lot with 7 years of work experience. In 2015, I decided that in order to further my career and develop myself, I had to further my education so that I could stand out from other candidates that may be applying for the same position. It gave me an advantage when I started my new journey because I was able to obtain a better position."

"This school has been great and I've learned a lot. After reading some of these comments I was shocked to see all the negativity. Students/ex students need to take responsibility for their own actions. There is no college that guarantees you a job after you obtain a degree, the leg work is on you. The school has the resources needed for you to become a successful student and job placement services. As a military member juggling a busy schedule and multiple deployments I was able to complete my BA degree. Yes some teachers are picky and hard to work with, this is present at all colleges. Financial Aid department were easy to work with and any funds remaining were always released to my account. All you had to do was, fill out the funds request form and send it back to your finance counselor. The money would come as check or direct deposit to your bank account. Furthermore, all issues I had at the school were my fault and being lazy or waiting until the last minute to do any assignments will reflect upon your grades. People need to take responsibility for their actions and not blame the school because they're not given an "A" for effort."

Robert Williams - 9/10/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014
"The university engaged in high pressure tactics to entice me to enroll. Once enrolled they were more concerned with how I would pay and offered loans I did not need. The quality of education was mediocre. I will give them this though, because I obtained a degree, I was able to be promoted in the Army, but it was over-priced and the quality of education was lacking."

ELVIN LEE ANDERSON JR - 9/9/2016
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."

J. Bovell - 9/8/2016
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."
