Degree: Healthcare Administration

Many mixed reviews about UoP. I may be in a different position than most others. I enrolled in the MHA program for self growth, not for career advancement. I am currently finishing the MHA program, capstone project. I have taken 11 on line courses and have to say have learned a great deal, even though I have been in healthcare leadership for 35+ years. The learning experience has been fun as I have been able to study on my own time and not be tied to a strict program that requires class attendance.... Read More

I'm writing primarily to respond to some concerns here and to provide an update on the program. UoP offers both an traditional and accelerated program for MHA completion. If you're a clinician or other long-time health professional that did well in undergrad, I encourage you to consider the accelerated program. It is cheaper and the program is teaching non-health professionals how to think on larger scales and consider regulatory requirements. The degree will help with my career progression, as an...

I chose to do this degree online as Im a single parent and parental caregiver. I did enjoy that I could do some at my own pace. Faculty was very kind and very thorough in helping me get through courses that could be difficult. I had to finish one more course after Hurricane Harvey hit. University of Phoenix even lent me a computer to help me finish as mine had flooded. The only thing I have negative to say is that this degree really hasnt helped me any in growing my career personally

Expensive and no real value and return with a degree earned from this for profit higher ed provider. If you're truly considering a return to higher ed that provides true value and the same convienience look into your local public university. UoP is a joke!

I am very disappointed with University of Phoenix. Tuition and additional fees are so expensive compared to other online schools. The professors and the curriculum are fairly poor. One think I've noticed is that numerous people have complained about not graduating on their perspective commencement date because of failing their class. Classes cost over $3,000 each and the professor will find a way to make the student retake at least one class during their journey. I think its a scam and hope someone... Read More

I have learned a lot at the University of Phoenix over the last few years. I actually think that I learn better by doing research and presentations because the information stays in my brain better. Every school is going to have some things that you do not agree with or teachers that are not so great but overall I can say that the University of Phoenix provided a great education.

Upside: This institution delivered a well-rounded education delivered by practitioners in the field. Downsides: Extremely expensive, Senior Administration does not connect with the student body, there is a restrictive limitation on the number of references that one may request form the Dean's office (fellowships, scholarships, professional, etc.), The office of financial aid pushes student loans and offers minimal support for scholarship opportunities, no Latin Honors for some programs, minimal professional...

I am unpleased with the school for the following reasons: The instructors were not well selected, I did not receive any job/career placement after finishing THREE degrees with the University of Phoenix. There was no added assistance with job placement and now I owe more than $97,000.00 in financial aid. I am paying the minimum because it is not right that I still have the same job/position that I had when I started with University of Phoenix. I completed three degrees: Associates, Bachelors, and...

I've read several reviews and feel compelled to interject my two cents...I just completed my master's degree and feel such a sense of accomplishment. I did this for myself and possibly my career.

I want to comment on a few things I have read in the reviews...first, I had only the experience of incredible communication with my academic adviser, S., and had no difficulty ever understanding and obtaining help with any financial aid matters. The content of the courses was amazing and at times, I felt... Read More

I say this as many, if not most, folks in my classes needed to go back and revisit English 101. I was amazed that some folks were able to proceed through a master's program and not even understand the basics centered on grammar, APA, and spell check!

Along the lines of career placement, I have had no introduction but I do suggest that each person steer the helm of their own future and not wait for promises of job placement. For those that write complaints of this offering, I suggest spending more time honing your grammar and seeking professional resume advice...

If you do not have the two mentioned above then yes you are not going to make it through any on-line program. I worked full time, moved 1000 miles for a new job and still finished my MHA in 2 years.

It was hard, I had to be dedicated, self disciplined, and stay on top of all the work necessary for me to get an A. I know other people who have tried to do this type of degree and they quit. The course work is hard, a lot of writing, excel, power point, and research. If you are serious about your degree... Read More

My advisers were totally awesome. I had one for financial, education, a life coach, and may other helpful people who really did care. Even when I thought I would not survive I got the strength from my life coach (a part of your tuition from UoP) to complete my degree.


The University knows the struggles of working, family, and school. So they have given every resource to us as a part of the program, which if you use will be very helpful. But you must use them to get the benefit. The help is their and the professors are very dedicated. Most of them work full time and have families just like us, so they understand time restrains.
