Overall a great experience. knowledgeable teachers, challenging work, great feedback from professors. Technical assistance was available even in the wee hours! The price was fair and the expectations were high. I liked taking classes online because it was flexible. I recommend this school...
University of Phoenix was overall excellent. I began my second go at college at the age of 38. I was very nervous. I hadn't written a paper in years (17 to be exact), but I knew I had to do. I needed to gain knowledge as well as position myself to make more income. The advisors, counselors and professor were excellent. I had the occasional professor that was a bit more demanding or detailed, but overall my experience was great. Because I was so nervous about writing papers and expressing myself correctly, I considered different avenues where I could receive the help I needed to assist me in writing. This was not at all needed. The University of Phoenix offers so much help! They have a 24-hour paper review center! You just submit your paper and it comes back, in good time, with all the suggestions and corrections to make your paper great. This was an awesome tool for me. You also have direct access to grammar and format checks. I feel like I am not doing UOP enough justice. All I can say is everything you need, University of Phoenix has it. I loved this school so much, I am going back for my master's in a week! I am grateful for all the care UOP has given over the past few years and would refer everyone to attend.
If you want a degree that requires no more education than an elementary student, Phoenix is for you! You will not learn anything from attending this school. I wanted my degree to expand my knowledge in my field, but I ended up losing out gaining knowledge on potential opportunities. Not only is the education terrible, but the teachers are too. They cannot type or speak in the least bit of English, so I do not know what they are asking for us to do. All of my teachers have also forced their political opinions down our throats and fought with their students to prove their vastly incorrect points. All-in-all, a great kindergarten school and a very mediocre elementary school, but VERY far from a college.
I am only 4 classes away from completing my master's program and I am not satisfied with the education I have received. I have not had any issues with financial aid but my academic advisor has not been regularly contacting me. Since I have enrolled back in August 2015, my advisor has only contacted me twice. I truly regret enrolling in this school and I wish that I can transfer. I should have done further research on the school, for this school does not have a good reputation. I can't help but feel that my degree will not matter once I complete the program. I chose this school because it catered to those with busy schedules and have full time jobs. But I should of researched further on the quality of the education.
University of Phoenix is a pretty decent school. Academically it meets the criteria but financially not so much. The teachers were great! They were helpful throughout every course. I love that they are made available to you mostly 24/7. The financial part of things at UOP was kind of frustrating because when it came down to financial aid there were several problems that delayed my financial aid or required. I was told that an associates degree could get me into the job I wanted which is probation officer but I later found out that a bachelors degree was required for the job. Other than that I enjoyed the University of Phoenix and look forward to starting my bachelors program with the UOP.
I attended the University of Phoenix online for my bachelors of science in nursing (BSN). I was a registered nurse but I wanted to further my career because education is extremely important to me. I had a great experience going to school for my BSN. I feel it truly made me a better writer. I was required to write an essay every single week, and even though I dreaded writing one so often, it benefited me tremendously in the long run. Now I'm going to school for my masters in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and it's making my transition so much easier. I have made straight A's in every single class, including the weighting portion. I feel the University of Phoenix made me a better, more educated nurse!
The University of Phoenix is a great institution for non-traditional students that may have ventured off of the road to higher education and want to get back on it. While I certainly did not take the traditional four year road to get here, my journey as a phoenix is one that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Even online, I have made special connections with many of my classmates and we keep in touch outside of the classroom; you don't miss out on being social if you cannot commit to physical classes. Additionally, the university does a great job to prepare students and make sure that they are ready and able to seize opportunities, and ultimately realize their potentials. For me, everything seemed so impossible before this journey, and the University of Phoenix changed that for me... nothing is impossible to me now and all of my hopes and dreams are finally within grasp.
Scam. They enroll you in courses without telling you about it, and then charge you for them (even if you aren't a current student). This "school" cares about one thing only- their bottom line. It's all about the money. The education stinks. The courses are horrible. Save your time and go elsewhere. Ashford University has an online program that is amazing!
This school throws information at you and that is about it. There is no actual teaching done here. So far I have learned nothing to help me in my career and also tuition went up without notice. Stay away. This school is a ripoff and not worth your money.
University of Phoenix has not only made it possible for me to get a college degree while working full time, it has also helped me gain the knowledge and skills that I needed to excel at my job. I earned my bachelors of science in business with a supply chain management certificate. I was so impressed with University of Phoenix education system I immediately enrolled into the MBA program at University of Phoenix. I am proud to say that I recently got promoted to a director position and the executive officers within my company were impressed with the work ethic and knowledge I had in business after completing my degree. I hope to earn my MBA at University of Phoenix to help me reach my goal in becoming a business professional.
