Degree: Communications

I took the AA in IT (Networking) program at UoP first. I absolutely had NO complaints about the school back then. I enjoyed the accelerated pace of the classes, found the projects to be very proactive and useful. However, I did notice that students who did not come from a technology background struggled with the program, and most of them dropped out. The degree targeted students who already had the basic computer knowledge needed for A+ certification, but I doubt their advisors told any of them that.... Read More

I regret the day I ever enrolled at University of Phoenix. After taking a few classes, I decided this school and I were not the best fit, no big deal. It wasn't until I decided to withdraw that things turned sour. All the sudden everyone I talked to, once finding out I was withdrawing, became cold and almost impossible to work with. Every "financial advisor" I spoke with told me different things and gave me different amounts of money I owe. (Not to mention when I log into the site, it even tells... Read More

My degree is in Communications with an emphasis in cultural and diversity. My current employer supports me going to school but having applied for 25 jobs there I've been turned down for all of them. Not even getting an interview. It's discouraging having been here 11 years and feeling like I went to school to make a better quality life for myself and two little ones, but I'm in no better position than I was not having my degree. I start my MBA next month and I'm praying something pays off asap. I... Read More

University of Phoenix is a great school, if you want to learn, the challenge is on you. My only complaint is that there is not enough career advising and scholarships offered for students in attendance. It is worth looking into this university to complete a degree; make sure to get involved with others that live in your area and attending the University of Phoenix, they are helpful resources. The university also has great tools and resources, use them they are very helpful.

I can only give top marks to UoP. I could not finish my Bachelor's at the traditional University I was previously attended, due to job and family commitment, and this was a wonderful experience. If you are not a self-motivated, self-disciplined self-starter, keep on going because UoP is not for you. The program is very intense, more so than traditional university, and if you are not dedicated, you will not make it. I did, and was very proud to walk in 2013!

Basically the way there online system is set up is by points. You get points by participating in discussions. You can earn up to 8 points by posting messages and participating in classroom discussions. The thing with the online system is it's basically like teaching yourself. They have all the tools and worksheets that you go through and all the instructor does is post questions in the discussion forum so you can earn participation points. It's really black and white and charging 10,000 plus dollars... Read More
