I completed my associates and my Bachelor's Degree at this school and i really enjoyed my experience. I was able to work full time and be a parent while doing so. The school is expensive and I had a few teachers and assignments that i didn't like but I feel like i would have had that experience anywhere. Most of my instructors were knowledgeable and helpful. I was able to get support from my advisor when needed and i never had any issues with financial advisors. I have not had any issues finding... Read More

I have attended the University of Phoenix for about three years now, and I am transferring to a different college as soon as I finish the class that I am currently in because I cannot endure the stupidity any longer. The assignment descriptions are too vague and leave out critical information for the assignments. Currently I am in PSY/335 and the team assignment instructed each team member to choose an article and complete the proposal questions, then consolidate each member's contribution and choose...

This University is fast-paced, finishing a class every five weeks; it is up to YOU whether or not you earn those three credits after that. How bad do you want it? They have an LOA option that I utilized a couple of times to take care of things and take a 'little break' since the courses are one after the other. I do wish there were more graduating ceremonies in the state of Texas, though. Texas is such a LARGE state, and a lot of Texas students enrolled, having a ceremony every three months would...

University of Phoenix was a great option for my Bachelor's program. While online education was difficult, using their platform made it easy and possible for me to earn a degree when I would not otherwise have been able to. The user capability and ease of access allowed me to work around my busy schedule to earn a degree and change my path in life. With the degree I earned there I was able to go on and get a second degree in education to be able to teach others and use the knowledge I learned in my... Read More

My degree program was manageable for adults who are working and/or have children. In this program, one course was taken at a time for 6 weeks. The program included a lot of group interaction and projects. The book and class materials will included in the tuition so any materials needed for the classes were online. I felt that this program included a lot of self-teaching. The professors could be emailed when there were questions or difficulties, but there were not videos or webinars that would instruct...

I was being pushed by my chain of command to get a degree. We desperately needed officers at the time. I will say I did not do enough research. I had not been in high school in 15 years and was looking for a program to help me consolidate the random credits I had learned from several different community schools. No one told me you have to get at least 60% of credits from your gradating school. No one had ever explained that there is a difference between semesters and quarters. I had no idea there...

Just like any other institution, the University of Phoenix had its ups and downs. After attending both brick and mortar and online universities I can conclude that it is much easier in a brick and mortar classroom to get lost in the nether and avoid participation, but still, come out with an A. This is not the case with online schools such as University of Phoenix participation is required to pass. However, I got a lot more out of the class. I would have to say the work was more difficult because... Read More

I have never had any problems while at University of Phoenix. The financial aid staff was always on top of everything and my advisors were excellent with communication. I have never had one employer or gone to an interview where my school was looked down upon. If anything, employers like that you can hold down a full time job and take a full load of classes online. I would recommend Phoenix to anyone!

University of Phoenix is a joke. This is a money hungry school that does not provide the support the students need. I was on a leave of absence and needed it extended. I could not get my academic advisor to respond hardly ever and when he finally did, he assured me that he would extend my leave of absence for me because the system would not allow me to complete the form. Now I have received a letter stating that I owe them money for the classes I was signed up for during my leave of absence and that... Read More

The University of Phoenix was a great experience for me personally because I am a mother, military spouse, employed and a volunteer. The online courses allowed me to interact with other people in my situation, therefore making better understanding relationships. I was able to achieve everyday activities listed and still earn my bachelors degree, especially always moving from duty station to another. The school was very understanding of my affiliation to the military and worked with me every step... Read More

I recently graduated with a bachelors of science in psychology from the University of Phoenix. I feel the professors have prepared me for life as well as continuing my education with a masters degree in psychology. I would recommend this school to anyone who would desire to better their circumstances with a degree.

I was happy with UOP the first couple of years, but as I started getting to my upper division courses, the price for those courses literally doubled! As everyone knows by now, UOP already charges about 110% more than a community college, but that is only for the lower division courses...being slapped with another 100% increase was not acceptable. On top of that, I was told my degree plan was being discontinued due to a government study that proved a graduate from this school would not earn enough... Read More

Where do I begin? I can't say enough Great things about University of Phoenix. I am an older learner who was skeptical about online learning. I soon fell in love with it. I graduated in July with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and decided to venture to another school for graduate work. I soon found out there is no place like home and am enrolling back at University of Phoenix in the MAEd program. I was able to use my U of P degree and get a better job with more money.

It was an amazing experience going through UoP for both my Associates and Bachelors. The curriculum was followed as expected, not many issues with the usage and the faculty were amazing. If I could pursue my graduate study in my major at UoP, I would have had. Recommended school for a positive experience. Only negative really was the cost of the school; however, that was presented before I joined and remained consistent as expected.

I don't even know where to begin. Signing up for school was easy. But the financial aid procedure was a joke. They allow you to attend classes before the aid comes through. It is part of their process. So I took the first class, a critical thinking class, required, and now I owe the school over $1000. Their computer system returned my pell grant money to the government and knew it was happening and could not stop it. My financial aid, on my end, was completed and done properly. They blamed computer... Read More

The classes are tough but if you schedule time to do them, and put aside distractions to keep focus on your specific school time everything will be just fine. I know for me in the beginning, and end things were tough, but with much persistence and help from the staff at the school I made it through with flying colors.

DO NOT GO HERE! Your first red flag should be that the university doesn't require former transcripts - meaning they in no way make sure enrolling students are up to the required work (thus, why so many drop out due to struggling with material or fail out and wind up in massive debt). Beyond this, the school's aid department is a joke. Not only do they rarely, if ever, have accurate information on aid amounts, disbursement dates, and so forth, but MANY students have had money go missing. Further,... Read More

University of Phoenix's online programs are extremely rigorous and require a great amount of time management. Almost every day, I would need to complete some kind of assignment. My academic advisor was fantastic! He called at the beginning and end of each class just to make sure everything was going well. He was also available for me to call if issues happened to arise. He made me feel comfortable enough to speak my mind when I had an issue with a classmate and offered excellent advice on how to... Read More

My alumni provided me with the best ethical and behavioral learning models that I applied to my current career. This learning model had many challenges, but what is a challenge without a reward.I would love too continue my graduate program thus I know will open up greater career choices and applied knowledge for success.
