seanathan polidore - 8/12/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"I have really enjoy all 5 of my years at the University of Phoenix. Of course over 5 years a lot of life situations have taken place. I got married, I've been so injured where I couldn't do my work and I've been laid off of work. The school's wonderful staff more than accommodated me in every way possible to make sure that I was comfortable and able to perform at a high level. Every single member of the staff that I have ever spoken to have been super nice and helpful. Since getting my degree in Psychology I was able to get a job in my field of study right away and the knowledge that I learned in my classes I use daily with my clients."

"I'm an online student at UoP. I'm am nearly finished and worked hard to get to this point. Going to school online takes discipline and drive. If you succeed with online education you can succeed anywhere. My learning experience was meaningful and valuable. If I needed extra help they had the support. If you are a driven person who desires change and growth then you will succeed. However, if you lack drive and consistency, then maybe another alternative for a higher education may be necessary. I loved my experience here. I feel that the school valued me and my education and they want me to succeed."

Motivation and self discipline - 8/9/2016
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016
"The university of Phoenix was tough at times did not receive a lot of interaction or explanation with the facilitator. However I found a way to finish many of the classes were interesting. I believe that you learn much more on your own because you are basically on your own the curriculum was fast passed this was real so if your a self starter, motivated and not a quitter try it out. The courses are expensive at the doctoral level your best bet is to study hard if you want to graduate. At the moment I do not hold the position I should hold with my DM degree but I hope I can move up at the company were I work or seek another company that will honor my degree."

Sonya R.S. (VA) - 8/5/2016
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"The college that I attend is University of Phoenix. I would say that this college is a great college, and I am not saying these words because I just graduated with my Associates Degree in Heath Administration/Medical Records. I would say "YOU" are what determines how far and how determined you are in reaching you goal. We all have busy lives with families, our jobs, and everyday personal lives. When I started at University of Phoenix I was so determined that I was going to finish, and achieve my goal and go beyond. The staff at University of Phoenix help with that. The staff reached out to see how things were going and was everything okay with the class. The staff would ask if there is anything they could help me with or if there were any problems. I like that, I want a college that cares about me and cares what I think and the overall process. The fact that the staff reaches out to check on me is fantastic! Upon graduation, I had a 3.96 GPA, at first I was disappointed due to the fact I didn't get an A in my College Math class, I received a B+, which would have left with a 4.0 GPA. To me that was disappointing because I had gotten A's in all of my classes. I would say I had a nervous break down in that class. I reach out to Jason Ong, my Academic Counselor, I was crying couldn't breathe, I was telling him that I couldn't get the hang of the math class. The fact that he calm me down, and told me to take a day or two to think about and reflect on the huge accomplishments that I had already achieved. He was really a big help to me. He told me that I needed to pass the class with a C, he told me "Sonya you got this, you can do it". I was able to pass the class and my GPA was awesome! That fact that I can just pick up the phone and call is very important. The online process was fun, relaxing, you get to do the work at your own pace. It's up to "YOU" to set your own schedule, time management, goals and follow them through. I love the experience on sitting back at home or wherever, in my work clothes, pajamas, outside, on my home computer, laptop, tablet, phone, anywhere and just learn. There is no excuse on getting you work done, as long as you have the access and the capability of following it through. I feel like I have gain a lot of new friends along the way, and I continue to meet even more. I am attending my Bachelor degree with University of Phoenix this month, and I am so excited. My advice to anyone who is seeking a college to attend University of Phoenix. If not online, try the campus if there is one close to you. They really do care about you and your success. I tell my myself when things get overwhelming in class "Never give up! GO FOR IT"! These words have helped me through it all. So go for it and never give up!"

"I opened a charter middle school after earning my MBA. I felt University of Phoenix provided a meaningful, quality education. You get what you put into it; in other words if you apply yourself and finish your degree while putting in 110 percent, you should get a return on your educational investment for life!"

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2008
"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."

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."
