    The instructor will actually break down what you're suppose to do and usually the classmates can help you if you ask as well.If you like instructors that really know what they are talking about and love to help you truly understand the assignment you are working on then this is the definite college for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    As long as you log in and pay attention to your attendance and participation requirements, you are sure to do extremely well at this college.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is very cheap for an out of state school and depending on what degree area you are studying in, they have scholarships you can apply for. It cost me $8,000 to attend this school for a whole academic year. Here in Indianapolis that is very hard to find. Only one of our schools is about that cheap.

    Am enjoying being here

    The students there aren't just completing assignments and logging off, you actually speak with them and enrich your thinking in doing so. Many of the students come from different origins and beliefs and its almost as if your on a campus only so much better. You might meet someone that is already in your field and might be able to give you an insight on the field you want to be in.

    Am learning a lot

    As long as you log in and pay attention to your attendance and participation requirements, you are sure to do extremely well at this college. I have tried attending 2 colleges before this one and they just don't give me the one on one feeling that University of Phoenix online gives me. My teachers are there when I need help with homework and they are very flexible.

    This school is great for anyone who is willing to put their best foot forward for their education, life, and career. If you are willing to learn, then the University of Phoenix is for you!! Have fun and learn lots.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just make sure you read and follow your instructors directions and ask any questions you might have, because there is no such thing as a stupid question!

    Bang for the buck

    I have had several schools tell me that they can give me just as good of an education as the University of Phoenix, but for a lot less money, and I always reply with: I am happy where I am, I like everything and everyone at the University of Phoenix, and I do not plan to change schools. Thank you and have a good day!

    The AXIA Online program for UOPX is a great program for students who have trouble getting to class on time, do not have reliable transportation, or who like to work with computers. This program was best for me because with the online program, I am able to log onto my classroom discussion and assignments on my own time. It is very helpful in keeping my daily priorities organized and in the correct order.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is helpful to stay motivated and have a stable back up plan. If online, make sure to always have access to the internet and classrooms. If on campus, it is good to be self-motivated and keep track of materials and schedules.

    Bang for the buck

    UOPX offers great financial aid services, along with many different scholarship opportunities. This university makes sure that students have a career waiting after completion of a degree.

    Will enjoy being here

    Everyone at the University of Phoenix is polite and ready to help students with any questions or issues they have with the program. UOPX has a great team of advisers to help students succeed in school and graduate on time.

    Will learn a lot

    I am currently enrolled in the AXIA Online program at University of Phoenix. They offer many useful workshops to help new students get started and learn how to be a successful student. Detailed instructions on assignments make it easy to finish work faster. I believe I will learn a lot from this University.

    This school, as I mentioned above, is great for students who like online class to begin with, who are willing to put in time and effort into understanding material if they come across a difficult concept, and who are independent students. If you are a student who relies on other people in person for information or who relies on the teacher's lecture to learn the material, this school is probably not the greatest for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    This school is perfect for someone who is willing to find out information on their own and who is willing to put in time and effort to learn the material if it means watching a youtube or googling a concept that you don't understand. Obviously, you should like the concept of going to school online as well -- if you prefer in class, this is obviously not a school to apply to. My biggest tip to prospective students, however, is to always communicate with your instructor. If you are going to be offline for a day or two and are submitting your assignments early, that's okay, but it never hurts to post something or e-mail your instructor to let them know.

    Bang for the buck

    This school might be expensive for some people, but it is definitely worth what you are paying for. I have learned so much from all of my classes, even my electives, and I continue to learn new material everyday. I like that the instructors always find a way to make the material interesting so you aren't just reading a textbook everyday and eventually becoming bored with it. You are always learning something and you may even pick up a few friends across the country along the way! I have became friends with a few people who were in my previous classes and we still talk to this day and help each other out with editing papers or help with any assignments if we share the same major. Everyone is always friendly and helpful.

    Am enjoying being here

    I absolutely love being at University of Phoenix. I love it because everyone is so helpful and wonderful, especially the students in the class. I have taken a few challenging courses and find that normally when I am struggling, at the same time someone will post a link to a video or webpage on the chat forum that explains a concept we are supposed to be mastering. I really enjoy how everyone comes together as a class and helps one another understand the concepts. All of my instructors have been really helpful as well and always willing to explain anything I do not understand.

    Am learning a lot

    Two reasons really drew me into this school. One - I was self-employed when I began going to college doing my own courier service and I was open for business 24/7, which meant I could not have time constraints on when I was or was not in class. Two - I was always one of those kids in high school who paid attention and read the book so listening to the teacher's lecture put me to sleep because it was something I had already learned by reading the book or by watching a youtube video that explained a concept. I am learning so much through University of Phoenix. There are discussion questions every other week where every student in the class is involved in them and by talking to your classmates about a pertinent subject in the class or a concept that everyone is learning, it not only makes you understand material better but also makes you think more on the subject and see how other people view the concept you are all learning as well. As long as you are willing to be your own teacher by actually reading the textbook, and if you don't understand a concept, then youtube a video or google it to learn more, you get a lot out of this college as far as information is concerned. Of course, your instructors are also always available by telephone or e-mail as well and I have, in the ten classes I have taken, never had an instructor who was rude or would not explain a concept for me. All of my instructors have been great at explaining concepts that I don't understand as well.

    This school is great for students wanting a edge for there education.If your the individual who wants to truly be connected to your profession. If it's more than a source of income than join a alumni that is willing to prove that hard work and determination can truly separate the amateurs from the professionals.

    Tips for prospective students

    expand your intelligence, many may go to school for better careers but it is also important to have a deeper and more connected reason than that. I am enlightened by the thought of gaining more reusable information.” This will allow me to meet my educational goals, creating a higher success rate for my job-related deadlines. failure is like a bee every one's afraid to hit it,but it falls like any other insect. So don't be afraid to hit the bee.

    Bang for the buck

    The expense is not really so awful, with so many options out here to take advantage of it makes debt seem merely impossible.If you talk to your financial advisors they are willing to assist you threw the complete process.They were almost like my best friends,all they would need is a Facebook page.

    Am enjoying being here

    By experiencing University of Phoenix has only broadened my horizons. I value this experience every second, there are others who could only wish for this experience and are rarely given the chance to pursue it. I can give back to those individuals by taking this chance and utilizing my schools resources.I am tongue tied, with the enjoyment I receive from attending this school.If only high school science fair were like this.

    Am learning a lot

    I have received unique skills out of my college experience; it has equipped me for the possibilities of life and given me reasonable sources. My University of Phoenix experience has showed me that it is important to communicate and receive communication. It has exposed me to many ways of avoiding job-related barriers and convinced me to make it to the finish line. There are so many things and ways to learn with this school.If your willing to put forth the effort to learn than the educational experience will become yours.

    I would say that a person who is self-motivated and determined would be a good Phoenix student. It takes a great amount of effort to reach the learning goals and expectations they require but anyone with the ambition to learn and succeed should do well here.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are considering this school for your next degree I would highly recommend that you consider their online, Axia program as well as the closest campus location near you. When you combine the two learning environments it makes for the best experience and education you can get.

    Bang for the buck

    It may seem quite expenssive to go here for the average student but I have to say it is well worth the money! The amount of effort you put into your classes will determine your success and this school does a great job at giving its students every opportunity to succeed!

    Am enjoying being here

    My teachers and classmates are very interactive and communicating with them has been a great experience because we are able to respond via e-mail and phone calls. This makes the learning process much more enjoyable.

    Am learning a lot

    I feel like since becoming enrolled in this college I have learned so many new skills and tools to use for my future. Compared to the local community college I was going to, there is so much more information available through the UoP and the material has tought me more in half a year than I learned in two years at a public school.

    I'm not clear on what this question is asking. The online campus is great for busy individuals or for those who do not want to go traipsing across a campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Expect to do a lot of reading. If you enjoy reading, there should be no problem. If you do not enjoy reading, learn to. It is needed in order to be very successful in your classes.

    Bang for the buck

    I think I am getting a quality education. I do wish, though, that for what I am paying, that they would also have recorded online lectures to help hit a lot of the information home that we read in our texts. That is my only complaint.

    Am enjoying being here

    I definitely enjoy being at U of P. I do not have a car right now. Trying to continue my education elsewhere would have been a headache. Not only that, but I had a great academic counselor that pretty much held my hand in the beginning. I honestly never received such treatment from a physical campus. I'm not saying you can't. I'm merely speaking of my experience.

    Am learning a lot

    I remember thinking in the beginning that an online University may not give me as thorough knowledge as a physical campus. All of that has been shot out of the water. I am learning a lot. The classes seem to be thoroughly researched.

    If you do not like taking tests but do enjoy writing papers, UoPX online is the way to go. If you prefer communicating through emails, online forums, and texts, this is an ideal university. The most important quality for a student who is think about UoPX online is that you maintain good discipline. This is important for all students but when you are not showing up to an actual classroom everyday you must have good time management.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to write a paper almost every week. Be prepared to work on a team at least every other week of a class. They seem more difficult at first but become easier as everyone gets the rhythm of how the team thing works. Keep regular contact with your academic advisor and finance advisor. Some of them are a bit careless so if you do not hear from them in 48-72 hours call and ask if they are on vacation, if they have not ask to speak to their supervisor and request a new advisor. The advisors seem to be hit or miss.

    Bang for the buck

    It is expensive. The advantage of University of Phoenix online is that you can work full-time and do other things that you could not do if you were going to a brick and mortar college. I think that the classes should be less expensive because teachers and students are using there own space and utilities that brick and mortar colleges would normally have to pay for. The cost is probably my least favorite thing about the school, especially since even thought it is accredited some people still do not see online schools as equal to brick and mortar.

    Am enjoying being here

    Most of my time so far has been very enjoyable because I never feel like I have been given an assignment that seems like busy work. Because most assignments require research and reading the textbooks, I always learn more than I was originally trying to look for. Most of the Team Learning experiences have taught me how to work with all kinds of personalities. Some of the experiences were quite penitential but often times the tough groups were the ones I learned the most from.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning how to work with many types of people through the internet, which I am sure will be something I can use for the rest of my life. I am also learning how to do thorough online research. I took this for granted until I started a job where many people did not know all the best ways to make search engines and online libraries work for them. Most obviously, I am gaining valuable knowledge to help me toward my career goals of becoming a published author and trauma therapist.

    The students, who is very busy and have no time to go to classroom, should consider enrolling in the Online Learning System. It's great and students just spend less than an hour to submit works and do other works on there.

    Tips for prospective students

    Any student can be a phoenix if they are interested in this school. You can feel free to enroll and become UoP student. Things you need to do first is ask yourself what you want to learn, what your goal is, and do you believe that you have enough what it takes to be successful ?

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is not really too much for student. However, we should be serious and responsible while dealing with the loan and financial aid programs. We have right to make our decision, because the future is in our hands, so think twice before making any action.

    Am enjoying being here

    Being a student of UoP is great! I am enjoying my time in this school. The online learning system is so cool and awesome. I could do work, research, and chat in the online classroom at anytime.

    Am learning a lot

    Anything post on the OLS is the thing that students need to take a look and learn something from that. Because it contains ideas of the instructor or some friend who is pleased to share that opinion to students in classroom. I have learned a lot from every single discussion questions, assignments, and other things from everyone on the OLS.

    University of Phoenix, either online or onground campuses offers so much to students needing something that will cooperate within their work and home schedules.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make certain to stay focused in the areas that need additional work, be communicative with facilitators and staff while keeping your mind open to new ideas or re-learning things you thought you knew already.

    Bang for the buck

    It is always best to apply for any type grants or low-cost loans to assist getting yourself through the educational process, and the costs thus far, have been manageable, although I would love to have a free-ride.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am pleased that I chose University of Phoenix in an online format. Additional resources are available for financial and academic counselling if needed, along with other tutorial resources being available at the school's local facilities.

    Am learning a lot

    I learn very much from each course I have taken or will take here at the University of Phoenix, online. This format of education works well within my personal schedule, whether I am working or away for a few days handling other needs. If a person has interest in educating online, they should try this as it not too overwhelming.

    Self-Starters, Good time managers, highly motivated

    Tips for prospective students

    You cannot be a procrastinator at the school, you have to be self motivating and organized. If you like to read ahead this is the college for you! That doesn't mean you don;t have to participate weekly though.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be certain that this is the only option before enrolling. Also if they promise things make sure to get it in writing because most of it will not happen.

    Bang for the buck

    No, you do not get anything but a few chapters for the money spent on the course materials and only some of the e-books are available for download. There is also not much help from the instructors, or at least the ones that I have had over the last year and a half.

    I have not had a good experience with this school. they got me started with miss leading information and once started everything they said to get me here turned out not to be true.

    I am learning a decent amount from being in college. However, in this school it is mainly self taught. There is not that much help from the instructors and most of them do not respond back in a timely manner.

    This is a great school for mothers, fathers, people currently working and wanting to advance their careers, and basically for anyone who is busy or someone who prefers the online environment more.

    Tips for prospective students

    As with any school, your going to get out of this school what you put in. The discussion questions are great for getting the students and instructor all involved, but if you choose just to check in to make attendance and not participate you will not get as much out of the classes. Also, I recommend always speaking with your instructor with any concerns or questions. I have yet to have one that has not been supportive.

    Bang for the buck

    The resources that are available are wonderful, and really help to get you through your classes. I have never felt that I have not gotten what has been paid for. I think money is well spent here.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love the school and all of the counselors. I receive frequent check in calls to make sure that my current class is going good, and if I have concerns. They have even been a great support for when I felt overwhelmed, and always ready to work with me if I need.

    Am learning a lot

    I received my Associates degree, and I am currently working towards my Bachelors of Science in Health and Human Services. Every class I have took, even the ones that make you ask Do I have to take this one, has offered me valuable knowledge. I have never walked away without learning something new.

    The University of Phoenix Online is great for all types of students. First time college students, returning students, or just anyone wanting to earn a degree and get a better education.

    Tips for prospective students

    If any student wants an online education, I would advise them to look no farther than the University of Phoenix.

    Am enjoying being here

    After being out of high school for thirty years, it was hard for me to make the decision of going back to school. My enrollment councilor, Nicole Tan, was the best. She was with me every step of the way. She answered any questions even the ones I thought I had already asked over one hundred times. Furthering my education with the University of Phoenix Online was the best decision I have made in a very long time.

    Am learning a lot

    As you proceed through orientation and then on to the classes, participation is the number one answer for this online school. The University of Phoenix is the best choice for any student looking for an online education.

    If you have a busy schedule and find a large classroom environment is not for you, this is a great option. I didn't do so well with big classes of 400+ students. I find a small classroom and online environment is a lot better. If I had questions, I was not afraid to ask.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid of taking part and sharing your knowledge. Take part in your Discussion Questions because you will learn so much more.

    I think I received everything for what I have paid for. Its gone by quick, but worth the effort put in.

    With families or full time jobs, they make it easy to fit around your schedule. Instead of taking time from your day to stop what your doing, drive to school, and sit in a class for hours, you can choose Phoenix. With online accredited courses you are able to work on your own time and how you learn best.

    Bang for the buck

    All the resources provided make it really worth the money. Whether it be online or on campus they provide all the materials in tuition and have unlimited resources. Campus's are open to all students around the state, when your out of town you can drop into any campus. Their are many programs to assist students with problems in math and english on the online learning center, and your counselors are always a phone call away.

    Am enjoying being here

    Such a great learning experience, you are able to communicate with other students and your teachers on online chat boards. The online site has everything you need to gain access to makes it simple for everyone.

    Am learning a lot

    I have not been a student for long but so far i am learning a lot and everything is laid out so well. The online classes are set up step by step to ensure you succeed in school. When determining if online classes are right for you you take a 3 week orientation which explains everything you need to do and tutorials on how the system works. Once you actually begin your classes your instructors have laid out your materials and syllabus to all of your assignments week by week. They make it simple to jump into and have many resources to assist you on those problem areas. With in the month i have learned more then i would have any where else. They don't just teach you stuff you'll never need to use but foundations for your future.

    I am currently enrolled in the Mental Health Counseling Program and I am loving every moment of it. I attend class ever Tuesday night and it is never a dread. I am constantly looking forward to class discussion and creative presentations.

    Am learning a lot

    Yes, I am learning a great deal of knowledge. The professors in my program are amazing, I couldn't ask for a better program to be apart of. The school requires students to engage in Learning Teams. An amazing opportunity for extensive learning and getting to know your fellow peers.

    Campus Safety

    The University has a posted security guard that is on-duty for the safety of the students. He is happy to accompany any student to his or her car as needed and is there during the school hours to insure our safety.

    Great for these types of students

    This University is awesome for my type of students. Having not been in the campus setting before it allows me experience the campus setting and still do my assignments online.

    Bang for the buck

    I have been out of the school setting for may years. After I lost my husband in 2006 in a work-related accident I decided to try and start over where I had left off . I decided I would do something for me this time and get my degrees in Medical Administration something I had dreamed of for many years.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic side of the University tends to address the older students and allow us to work at a pace that is easier for us to understand.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be very motivated and attend classes as they are designed.

    In three sentences

    The University has been awesome with the Instructors being very helpful. The financial advisers work closely on a personal level to assure everything is in line. The classes are small enough for personal attention.

    I think the only type of students that would do well at this college is if they have a horrible time with tests. Then they will have no problem with this school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Consider other colleges first. This college is not as marvelous and it appears or as they make it appear.

    Bang for the buck

    My learning experience at this school was not worth the money that it costed to attend it. If I could go back and choose another college, I most definitely would because I barely even remember any of the information that I learned at the University of Phoenix.

    Did enjoy being here

    I did not very much enjoy being at the University of Phoenix. Many of the teachers were not very helpful when you needed it the most and there was no easy way to contact the teacher besides inside the forums, but then you will end up without enough time to wait for a response before you have to start the homework. The best part about this school is that they are very understanding for medical complications, if it applies to hospitalization.

    Did learn a lot

    I didn't really learn that much through University of Phoenix, besides that I did not want to continue going there. This school doesn't seem to really test your knowledge. The final exams for this school are generally essays, which are incredibly easy for anyone. It's not even an essay on the entire course, it's just one small topic from the course. This school would be a lot better if they had tests for the final exam because then it actually requires the student to study all that they have learned and then apply it to the test.

    You have to have great determination and self motivation since you have to do everything at your own time, not like a regular school where you have a set time to attend class. Good for students who like to write because that is what yu will have to do, write.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your research to see if it has all the things that you want or work for you.

    Bang for the buck

    To be honest, I think the tuition or cost of the school is very expensive and sometimes I think I should have gone somewhere else just because of the cost. But, do not let cost be a problem that affects what you want from an education or what works for you. For me, I do not mind paying a little more to be able to do my work from home and being home with my kids.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy online school at Phoenix because I do not have to worry about doing presentations in front of people or commenting on what others say since I am usually not good with talking in front of a group of people. I enjoy being here because it allows me to stay home with my babies and I can log on at my own time.

    Am learning a lot

    The first year is pretty simple if you just got out of high school, it's almost like a review of everything that you just learned. Once you start the actual classes for your major it gets harder and you will actually be learning a lot of new things.

    Mature students, working parents, here's our school!!!

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask to audit or observe a class at the school you're thinking about, then have a list of questions for the teacher, counselor, and students. If I would've done this, my student loans would not be as high as they are now. Do the leg work and ask questions!!!

    Like any place, it's what you make of it. So far, I'm enjoying most of the people I interact with as far as students and staff alike.

    Am learning a lot

    The unique quality about this school that I've seen so far is that they focus a great deal in developing team building and group activities. This a different outlook than I'm used to. Unlike other schools, the books in the classes I've taken have been e-books. A stronger emphasis is placed on electronic education, so I hope you have a strong MS Office knowledge.

So far all of the staff/ teachers are really cool especially when I went into the building I had no clue where to go and a lady stopped talking to her group and came and helped me. They are also really helpful with filling out your fasfa and other documents. It's a really personal school and they really want to get to know you! Loving it so far!

    I am going for my Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree. It is totally different than working in the veterinary field.

    Am learning a lot

    University of Phoenix is has a very intensive curriculum, classes are only 5 weeks long, so time management is imperative. I find it keeping my interest more because of the immersion that you have to commit to with each new subject.

    Food and Dining

    There is no food and dining when taking online courses.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life in online courses. Therefore, I have no experience.

    Academic Rigor

    Maintaining attendance and following the syllabus of each course may appear difficult, however, discouragement is found to be most influential. Get on board, keep up, and moving forward is key to good academics.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students who seek within their education interests have already taken the first step, which is taking responsibility for every subsequent steps taken. Furthering your education is not an easy task, whether online or traditionally; however, being a single parent of two children with no college background is harder. Construct an outline of your goals (short-term and long-term), and if those goals paint bigger and brighter pictures, that picture becomes your future. Make it happen by furthering your education; for you, and for your family.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix offers accredited online courses. There are courses for all types of students' interests. This is definitely a great opportunity for parents who have a deep desire in furthering their education for the betterment of their lives!

    under the phoenixconnect section you will find the communities, groups, and blog, tabs for students wanting to join in on specific conversation topics and information. there, some topics such as learning communities, career & professional development, campus life, and support communities are great ways for students to become involved with other students to chit chat about anything.

    Bang for the buck

    the bang for the buck? if you have trouble with math there are study materials and videos that help you figure out to solve the problems step by step! they have an element k section where you can study for other things for free on your own time and will with topics such as business professional, cisco, communications technologies, lots of other computer technology certificates and more! and when you need some more information about specific topics and you don't feel like reading they also have media library section with almost 2,000 learning videos for all different subjects!!

    Food and Dining

    i'm sure the food and dining is great but i only do online classes.

    Dorm Life

    i'm sure the dorm life i great but i only do online classes.

    Academic Rigor

    not only do they have tons of research information but they also have forums so you can talk to other students, the forums are kind of like facebook because you can add friends and talk to other students that are in the same classes as you or other students in other classes that have been in your situation in you need help or just want to ask a question or talk about a specific topic. uop also has a library section where you can go to study up on or perfect your math and writing skills.

    Tips for prospective students

    don't discourage yourself for applying to do classes online. it's so much easier to come home and do the work on your own time rather than having to re-schedule everything you do just to go to a physical class. also, if your worried about face-time, don't! you have the ability to email or talk on the phone with your counselors and professors all the time. they will help you if you ask for it.

    In three sentences

    i absolutely love the availablity of the classes and the supportive staff. i am bale to work full time and do my classwork when i come home. if it wasn't for the university of phoenix helping me with my financial aid and keeping contact with me from beginning to end i probably wouldn't have even started college yet!

    Bang for the buck

    i think i am getting my money's worth attending uop axia. classes are not cheap, like any other college, but i feel that with the curriculum for my degree, i have made the right decision in selecting this college. i am in my second year, and have loved every minute of it.

    What to do for fun

    my family lives in the woods, miles away from any town or city, so there is plenty of wildlife to observe and enjoy.

    Food and Dining

    again, being a non-traditional student, i live at home with family. my mom isn't the greatest cook, and i don't always have time to make dinner.

    Dorm Life

    because of being a non-traditional student, my dorm life is great. i live with my parents right now (for financial reasons), and my husband loves it as well. we maintain the freedoms that a dorm student would have, without the excess rules as well.

    Academic Rigor

    i am challenged everyday by something new. currently, i am in algebra, which has always been challenging for me. thankfully, even though i am an online student, i am able to receive help from labs and tutors.

    Tips for prospective students

    talk to you advisors about everything concerning school- hold no questions back! maintain good communication with your instructors as well; if you don't understand something, they may be able to offer you resources that can help you. finally, know what you want before you get started; this is a general tip for anyone starting college.

    In three sentences

    great school for those looking to get a degree without having to spend time in a traditional classroom setting. classes are generally flexible, and instructors are good at giving feedback on assignments. one final note is that the classes truly are challenging- they may be online, but they feel like they are being taught in the traditional setting.

    sometimes course materals or instructors are not as thorough as you would like. the solution is to always clarify with the instructor. if there is a different issue at hand, then a councelor would be the person to ask for help.

    Tips for prospective students

    the online environment is no joke. just because a computer is involved does not mean the experience is easy. in fact, it is quite the opposite. working together with other students via the student web site is difficult as life gets in the way of studies sometimes. it is important to communicate, and often.

    In three sentences

    the online environment is very challenging. the course work and materials provided in each class requires constant dedication. fellow students and instructors make each course a life changing experience.

    Great for these types of students

    perfect for students that want to work at their own pace, but you must be dedicated because it is easy to slack off when you don't have anyone else to answer to face to face.

    Bang for the buck

    it is a bit more expensive than most community colleges, but i definitely feel it is worth it. because your classes are only 9 weeks instead of 12 you're getting more education and more credits per year than traditional colleges, so it isn't really much more expensive when you take that into account. also, a lot of other schools if you take online classes you have a hard time getting in touch with your instructors or counselors, but that isn't the case here, they are very supportive.

    What to do for fun

    the joy of online classes is that you still live at your own home, with your own friends and family, and you can continue to enjoy your own hobbies.

    Food and Dining

    again, all of my classes are online so i have never actually been on any campus. that being said, i have heard that they have good food at the local campus in minneapolis, mn.

    Dorm Life

    i take all online classes, so i do not know anything about their dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    classes are quite demanding, especially the farther you progress towards your degree. you will be learning an entire chapter every week for each class, in addition to multiple posts per day and essay assignments.

    Tips for prospective students

    each quarter is only 9 weeks instead of the standard 12, so the material is much more condensed and faster paced, be prepared to take only 2 classes at a time and still be very busy. if you have any issues with your advisors, speak up and they will transfer you to another one that will be a better fit.

    In three sentences

    very helpful when you are first starting out, they explain everything and help you every step of the way. i take all online classes and my academic advisor calls me about once a week to check in and make sure everything is going great and if i have any questions. online classes let you work at your own pace and on your own time.

    Campus Safety

    safety is one of the highlights at phoenix. there is always at least two security guards at the front door of the school every single day. also, you will notice while sitting in class that one of the security guards will walk the entire building and look inside each classroom to make sure everyone is safe and sound! love the security!

    students at phoenix should be prepared to have multiple assignments due in on given week. students must also be able to work well with others no matter what cultures may be involved.

    Tips for prospective students

    students must be prepared to work in teams, as phoenix is based off of teamwork and working with other people. also, students must be prepared to discuss topics or subjects during class, and don't be afraid to get involved. students should also know how to used computers, as you will do all your homework with a computer and you will submit all homework through the internet, instead of on paper.

    university of phoenix is very convenient for students, especially for those students with full time jobs and/or children. i have held a 4.0 gpa since attending university of phoenix. as a student i feel that i get so much more out of the classes at university of phoenix, because of the fact that it is based on a discussion based learning rather than lecture.

    Dorm Life

    because the school is geared to adult learners there are no dorms.

    Tips for prospective students

    my best advice for students concerns using the feedback provided for assignments. often i hear fellow students complain about a grade, or say they are content with a passing grade. school is not all about the grades, but what is learned in the process. when i receive feedback, i figure out “what i did wrong. if my infraction was apa related, i look up the rule in my apa publications manual. i once found that the teacher was wrong, and with a proper reference i was awarded the point i originally lost. if my point deduction was for content, i will research further and ask for clarification. if i misinterpreted an article or study, i will ask the instructor for clarification to ensure i understand the concept in the future. these suggestions i am writing are techniques i use to maintain my 3.93 gpa.

    In three sentences

    university of phoenix is a unique learning experience for the adult learner. all faculty and staff understand the rigorous schedule of a job, school, and often caring for a family. if succeeding in the world of academia is your goal, university of phoenix has the tools to motivate and help a student achieve more than imagined.

    Campus Safety

    attending an online facility campus safety has little concern for me. my campus is the website i must log into in order to attend class so there is no concern for personal harm. the only campus safety issues i worry with is if my computer were to catch a virus or lock down and i took out extra insurance and technical support in case this were to happen.

    Greek Life

    i am new to the college scene and am learning about college life. at this time i have no input on greek life nor do i know if it even exists at the university of phoenix online. i appolijize for my lack of knowledge.

    Clubs and Activities

    i am new to the college life and cant honestly say whether or not the university of phoenix online has any clubs. i do know that as a single mom by attending here i will not have to worry about missing any of my children's ballgames and other school activities. i will be able to focus on obtaining my degree without giving up or missing out on my children's lives.

    Great for these types of students

    online education is great for people like i that have busy day to day lives yet have the desire and willpower to further there education and need to attend class around existing work and family obligations. i also feel that the online classroom is a great idea for people that are shy without the face to face confrontation it makes it easier for these type of people to actually participate in class discussions and debates. as a new student that hasn't entered into an actual classroom in 20 years i found it less intimidating to take the step of furthering my education by using the online classroom, i was eager to attend class and begin learning without the added anxieties of having to search for the right room and any other phobias that pertain to the first day of school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    here again by choosing to attend an online facility and only having attended the orientation workshop i cant give any information on traditions or locations on campus. the student web page is my campus and it contains forums, which are rooms you enter into in order to obtain assignments and have discussions with facilitators and classmates. it also contains a library that easily accessible and i have found much faster at locating reading materials needed for research for assignments and you have all this at your fingertips without causing disturbance or being disturbed.

    Bang for the buck

    with gas prices rapidly rising i find that i will save approximately $200 each month just on commuting back and forth to an actual campus; not to mention the additional traveling i may have to do to go to the library and other on campus requirements. this will save me around $2,400 a year and with a 3 year academic plan ahead of me that is a good bit of cash. not to mention that expense is only rising and i am saving wear and tear on my vehicle which means i will save even more money by not adding more miles to my daily drive, saving on tire and other maintenance expenses.

    What to do for fun

    in choosing an online learning center it has proven so far to be easier to maintain a personal life while attending class. you can take your classroom with you if need be and can also plan ahead so that there is time for fun. you can schedule your class time around your personal schedule as long as you know assignment deadline and have them turned in on time, this makes planning events much easier than working around an actual on campus class schedule.

    Food and Dining

    due to the decision to attend an online institution i will not have any encounters with college food and dining. there is no feedback i could possibly give in this area. i can not say that i will miss that experience of college life.

    Dorm Life

    i have chosen to attend an online facility due to my work and motherly obligations. i found this to be the best way for me to further my education and still maintain my previous obligations. due to this fact there is no information i could possibly give in this field.

    Academic Rigor

    in the online classroom there is a discussion forum where actual classroom discussions take place. you read and respond to fellow classmates ideas and facts on the topic at hand like you would in a regular classroom only not seeing or hearing the person you are corresponding with. i have found this approach less intimidating therefore making it easier on myself to participate freely in class discussions.

    Tips for prospective students

    feel free to ask any and all questions that you may have no matter how simple or complex you may think it is. be patient and have confidence in yourself and you can navigate their online system. if you are looking for an online school and still want the attentiveness of an actual classroom with ad visors that are there for you the university of phoenix may be the one you are looking for.

    In three sentences

    i have only attended the orientation workshop so far but have found its online classrooms easy to navigate and informative. the facilitators are easy to contact and are very responsive to all questions and concerns. so far it has been an enjoyable learning experience.

    This is the best part. With your academic growth and schoolwork in your hands, you can easily organize your fun time around your workload. And since you can access your classroom anywhere you can access the Internet, the possibilities are limitless.

    Food and Dining

    As with Dorm Life, your food and dining does not change much. However, I would suggest using your free time to learn about eating a proper balance meal or maybe go out and sample some local cuisine in your area.

    Dorm Life

    Since you don't have to change your life or move to go to school online, your dorm life is your regular life. Just with more time spent on or near a computer. However since classrooms are always open, you can plan your school work around your recreation time.

    Academic Rigor

    The standards are stiff but compromising. Instructors are very easy to talk to and come from a variety of different backgrounds and academic perspectives. As long as you are able to articulate and put in the work, your grade will reflect that.

    Tips for prospective students

    Going to school online has a certain stigma attached to it; easy, not as good as a traditional classroom, etc. Ignore it, in truth, online classroom ensures that students get what they put into their work. There are no short-cuts or easy' work.

    In three sentences

    With flexible programs and 24-7 classroom availability, UoP is a great academic institution for the working adult or stay-at-home family person.

    Be sure tostay in tune with finances for school to ensure that you will have enough funding to finish your program. Be advised that the online curriculum is a little more exspensive than the ground classes.

    Food and Dining

    The University of Phoenix provides Hot Drinks (coffee, tea, and hot chocolate) but there are vending machines for snacks on site. However, most instructors allow food brought in because they understand that students are comming straight from work. Sometimes the indavidual classes go together to bring in food for everyone in the class but that is entrely up to the class.

    Dorm Life

    The University of Phoenix does not have a dorm life so there is no added costs.

    Academic Rigor

    The University of Phoenix is a fast paced academic non-traditional environment requiring the student to keep up or lose points, but with the determination the students can excel and achieve excellence. The University of Phoenix requires the student to work in teams, which can be difficult for those use to working independently. However, this process will become easier with time.

    Prospective students should prepare for a fast pasted study regiment because the University of Phoenix requires participation, team learning and academic excellence from their students. To prepare yourself for this experience, make sure to schedule a time to study because the time can escape you, which will become overwhelming.

    The University of Phoenix is a fabulous place for adult students to learn because the instructor's have experience in the field corresponding to the classes they teach. This experience is beneficial to the education process because it allows the student to learn what their chosen field requires from the instructor's successes rather than just book learning. Combine this learning experience, with the benefit of team learning and you have a university that understands what the students need to be successful in their future. The University of Phoenix works well with all work scheduals because its ground calsses are one night a week and the online classes stucture gives flexability there is nothing this university does not do to assist adults to continue their education.

    the one thing to be aware of is that many times graded assignments are due before the first class day, which means you sometimes need to actively search for the answers elsewhere than the university. this is for several reasons. one is the university many times does not offer information related to the assignment given. second you may not get a teacher that understands this method and will not change the due date of the assignments. third then in class there is usually 2 to three hours of instruction on the paper or assignment you previously turned in. hopefully you will get a teacher that allows for a midnight due date a day or two later after proper explanation of what they are requiring of you.

    In three sentences

    the university is centrally located in colorado springs. it caters to adult students who have a life outside of class, which many times include family, work, other schools being attended, and/or just busy people. they have several campuses in colorado springs which all students are welcome to get assistance while a student at the university.

    because the university of phoenix is an online school does not require campus to attend. therefore there is no need for a dorm or form life.

    Academic Rigor

    the class work is consistent. the classes are two classes every nine weeks when you are receiving your associates to agree. when in the process of receiving a bachelor degree you have one class every five weeks. as a student if you keep up on your reading and your assignments you will find that the weeks pass quickly and before you know it the course is over and your new course begin.

    Tips for prospective students

    i recommend for new students to take any and all workshops. also take the new student three-week workshop which helps acclimate you to the web site. these workshops not only help in assisting you with how the website is ran, but also help build strength in courses that you may be lacking and otherwise. each workshop is three days long and helps cover a wide range of courses. take advantage of these workshops which will help benefit you as your education progresses throughout the year.

    In three sentences

    the university of phoenix online school is amazing. education i received will last me a lifetime. i cannot wait to begin my career.

    the mandatory 3 week orientation seems silly at first, but when you get into it, you realize how hard navigating the student website and getting information/materials you need is. after the orientation, everything makes sense and you know exactly how all your classes will be set up and how to succeed in them.

    i previously tried going to college online with everest university and was sorely disappointed with the quality of teaching i received. at university of phoenix i have never been disappointed with the quality of teaching, even in a class that bored me. after extensive research before enrolling with university of phoenix, i looked up tuition rates on several different colleges. university of phoenix has one of the lowest tuition rates with one of the best teaching qualities available out there.

    some of the freshman year classes can be seen as easy but as time progresses with the classes, so does the work. plagiarism is not allowed in any form and while each teacher has their own style for what they look for in essays, all of the writings have to follow apa format. i have found university of phoenix to have high academic standards and strive to maintain those.

    like any other school, the teachers vary. lots of reading because of alternative class schedule. lots of presentations as a team. the difficulty is primarily balancing competing priorities since most students have jobs and families to tend to concurrently

    Tips for prospective students

    be prepared to work outside your comfort zone: team assignments are required - conflict resolution and pro-active communication are a must for every class. five-week classes are a two-edged sword. its over quick but there is no time to catch up if you slack off or have difficulties - try to work ahead so you can get help quickly.

    Campus Safety

    Campus security was more of making sure the instructors on campus were not letting classes out early. If the class was scheduled for four hours you attended class the whole time. In a year and a half I had one class get out 30 minutes early on the final night, at Christmas break.

    Clubs and Activities

    None.

    Great for these types of students

    Well organized, dedicated, and serious about completing school. If you are the type of student to wait until the eleventh hour to complete your assignments you will not survive as an individual or team member at UoP.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The diversity of the students on line are the most unusual and yet interesting.

    Bang for the buck

    Being a full time employee, traditional full time school was not an option. UoP in Utah was the best price and timeline to complete my Bachelors Degree with 50% transfer credits completed for campus and online classes.

    What to do for fun

    Reading, study and completing papers that is the life at UoP.

    Food and Dining

    Again, UoP does not offer on campus living so food/dining are independent of the college and most often are not located on site for campus learning.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life that I am aware of. I did enjoy dorm life when I attended junior college back in 1992-4.

    Academic Rigor

    Be ready for daily participation and a ton of reading if you attend any U o P program. Often there are 3-6 chapters at 40 pages or more per chapter required each week. You need to be organized to balance work, family and school life to attend UoP.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep in contact with your academic and financial advisors and try to get at least $2000 in scholarships if you do not qualify for grants as the students loans often are pro-rated your last semester and you will be close to a full class short on tuition.

    In three sentences

    The accelerated course schedule takes some getting used to but taking one class at a time was the saving factor. I have been an on campus and online student and prefer the campus setting so I have a better working relationship with my fellow team members. I wish there were more breaks scheduled during the program, often going to class for six or more months straight without a week off has been tough.

    I think that any student benefits from the flexibility that the University of Phoenix (UOP) offers. I started UOP as a busy full-time bread-winning worker, climbing the ladder working 40-60 hours per week and having two children and a husband to support. Anyone who has a desire to attain their degree will succeed at UOP. Even a high school graduate finds the online classes helpful because they can take courses around their work schedule, which often has the vast hours of retail. Anyone can do it.

    Bang for the buck

    My husband was attending a college in Colorado and although they claimed to provide a better everything, he shortly found out he was paying a lot more for a lot less. He transferred to the University of Phoenix (UOP) after two semesters, and he will not only finish his degree six months earlier, but he has learned so much more through UOP that he can take and apply in his industry on a day-to-day basis. In 2011 a huge study was done on private college costs, and UOP was rated as one of the top cheapest universities.

    What to do for fun

    The world is your oyster. Each day offers another pearl. The dry and sunny weather in Arizona allows for a lot of outdoor exploration.

    Food and Dining

    I do not live in Arizona,so I cannot say whether it is good or bad or even in between.

    Dorm Life

    Although I have not lived in a dorm at the University of Phoenix, every student is enriched through dorm living. Learning how to deal with others is a fact of life. Dorm living provides an outlet of how to do this on a small scale.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes and facilitators work very hard to provide you with the most updated information. They challenge you in three ways each week. First is the weekly topics for discussion where you have the opportunity to provide your opinions and experiences while learning from other classmates. Second is the individual projects and papers you will provide - this is an accountability to your gained knowledge. Third (and final) is the team projects and papers which enable you to work in a team just as you would in your industry for or with your management team (holding meetings - through Skype or such, collaborating all the team's knowledge, research, and capabilities to provide the best of the best). The online classes enable convenience in WHEN you do the work, but you still must do the work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tip 1 - Call an Enrollment Counselor: information is your best tool for decision-making. Tip 2 - Be Honest: the more information you provide, the more the staff can assist in placing you on the path that is best for your success. Tip 3 - Be Flexible: provide as much contact information for the staff to reach you through (a dead cellphone battery comes to mind). Tip 4 - Be Proactive: Don't wait on paperwork, do it immediately or as soon as you can. Don't let paperwork be the reason for missing the opportunities.

    In three sentences

    Whether you are a prospective freshman, transfer student, a professional looking to brush up on a skill, or a person who had some college and wants to complete a degree, then the University of Phoenix (UOP) is for you. Anyone (the stay-at-home parent without a car, a grandparent/senior citizen, a senior in high school, or the busy go-getter climbing the ladder doing 50-60 hours a week) can fit UOP's convenient classes into their schedule. UOP's administrative staff are very helpful and flexible to support your success.

    The University of Phoenix is great for the non traditional student who has a varying schedule or many obligations. Because their isn't a class time or physical place to be, the UOP student only needs to schedule in their own time for learning and meeting classroom obligations. UOP is amazing because now the military soldier, single parent, or traveling retiree can continue their learning!

    The University of Phoenix online does not offer food or dining. Feel free to eat dinner (if time is not available) while reading, learning, or working on projects. Your food and dining can now fit into any schedule- balance it with children, work, or even school work!

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should contact an enrollment counselor and discuss their goals and the opportunities available to them. Exploring UOP's programs will help one gain an idea of how UOP will enrich their life. Also, ask others how their experience with UOP has been for more preparation for online education.

The school library is all interactive and online. They have the same materials that you would find at conventional schools, all uploaded onto their mainframe. The math was the hardest of all the classes. Most of the criteria is research, study, participation, collaborative participation, essays, and research papers. They are looked over and graded precisely. If you are not a great academic writer, this school has labs and additional courses one might take to improve their writing knowledge. They also have online tutors that will help you with APA style formatting.

    Campus Safety

    No-nonsense here. Campuses are often located in business complexes.

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm not sure there are any, and if there are, they aren't easy to come by.

    Great for these types of students

    Returning students who know exactly what they're looking for.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Orlando has four campuses. Makes for an interesting first day.

    Bang for the buck

    Cheaper than my alternative: University of Minnesota, for an equally respected degree. The sidebits of business knowledge gained is a trade off for dorms and a social life.

    What to do for fun

    Get your homework out of the way and live life however you please.

    Food and Dining

    Usually, on the last meeting of class (assuming on campus classes are taken) the students volunteer for a potluck. I have yet to have been disappointed.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Group assignments are required for every class, to emulate a professional setting, yet a majority of students are in desperate need of a 25th hour. Lots of writing, even in classes that would require none at other schools.

    Tips for prospective students

    Plan on writing a lot. Plan on depending on other people (or finding ways to get around them). Plan on short bursts of intense homework. Don't expect a social life to come from it.

    In three sentences

    Entire classes are taken in a short five week span, with all of the associated homework still necessary. The concentration here is on returning students who know what they need, so the student aid and course planning division suffers. Not a bad school, but if you don't know exactly what you need and who you need to step on to get it, it may not be the best.

    UOP is a great opportunity for single parents, working students, and those who may have difficulty getting to a live campus.

    Bang for the buck

    University of Phoenix does have a higher tutition than most onlline schools. I chose UOp because they have a fantastic academic and finance support team. Enrolling in classes at UOP was seamless because of my enrollment, academic, and finance teams.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your area of study and your work experience in your chosen field, the curriculum for some courses can be intense.

    Tips for prospective students

    Should you choose University of Phoenix be sure to utilize all of the online resources. The school offers 3 day workshops that are excellent for preparing for the onine learning environment.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix has allowed me to return to school at a time in my life that on campus learning is not possible. My experience has been both challenging and rewarding. Going to school requires motivation; online school requires dedication, self-motivation, and a willingness to learn.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am currently a board member on the Advisory Board of the Community Corner Clubhouse, which is a psycho-social community-based program for the support of individuals with mental health issues. I volunteer my time to spend one-on-one time with individuals with mental health issues. My plan after graduation is to continue to work supporting, advocating, and case managing consumers.

    Great for these types of students

    I believe that the University of Phoenix is great for any type of student, whether they are traditional, non-traditional, or involved in continuing education. The University of Phoenix-online allows the student to work around their personal, and work life to achieve their ultimate academic and career goals.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    All the classes I take are online, thus this does not apply.

    Bang for the buck

    I like many other people who are in middle-age are focusing on improving their knowledge through education. I have been advocating for individuals with mental health issues since 1985, and would like to combine my Business Management and Human Services Management skills and education to better serve the community.

    What to do for fun

    Being an older student, I do relaxing things for fun such as fishing, walking, and art. I enjoy my volunteer work in the community. I volunteer at a local elderly resident care facility, and Community Corner Clubhouse, which is a community program for the support and advocacy of individuals with mental health issues.

    Food and Dining

    Again food and dining do not really pertain to my college career, because all my classes are online.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life does not really pertain to the University of Phoenix which I intend, because all of my classes are online.

    Academic Rigor

    The current program that I am in is very intense, however, very rewarding. I have a class every five weeks. Learning teams are a great tool that are used within the Bachelors programs to promote professional teamwork, that every one can take with them into their professional careers. I appreciate the Learning team concepts.

    Tips for prospective students

    One of the main tips that I can give to prospective students is use all the resources available at the University of Phoenix for maximum achievement and success. Do not be afraid to ask for assistance. The University of Phoenix offers great workshops, online tutoring, and many other resources. Time management is crucial to success.

    In three sentences

    I am an alumni of the University of Phoenix, and earned my Associate of Arts degree in Business Management June 2011. I have chosen to continue my education in the Bachelor's of Science program with an emphasize on Human Services Management. The academic, financial aid, and facility of University of Phoenix are outstanding, therefore I am very comfortable doing all my classes online.

    Great for these types of students

    University of Phoenix online is great for students that are self driven, have a strong support system, and hard workers.

    Bang for the buck

    I have found that UoP is no more (or less) expensive as any of my local colleges that offer the same program. The advisor staff is knowledgeable about most aspects of the school, as well as specific state requirements that apply to your state only.

    Food and Dining

    Food and dining are what you make in your home or where you enjoy to go eat while you attend the online campus.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life for the online campus unless you count you home as a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Most classes for the online campus are three (3) to five (5) weeks long and therefore fast paced. Constant group and individual participation is important, so make sure you have excellent time management skills.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared for constant group assignments. This means that a portion of your grade depends on other individuals to do their work in conjunction with yours. Keep a calendar near by to write down course start dates and assignments due dates. Stay in contact with you advisor staff (this varies for each program).

    In three sentences

    The enrolment staff is attentive and helpful. Class facilitators (professors) are easy to contact even after the class is over, and they are most often in a field related to what they are teaching. There is a lot of self guided work, but it pays off if you can manage the pace.

    Campus Safety

    I did not live on campus, but did attend some off campus classes. At these classes, the other students, and the professors, were very safety conscious and were always available to walk you to your car if you felt it was to dark or unsafe. I always felt safe when attending my classes.

    Clubs and Activities

    During my educational journey, I work full-time at a local Chamber of Commerce, volunteer for my local police department, started my own online company, became a senior consultant with Mary Kay, Inc., and found out that I am going to be a grandma for the first time. It has been a busy, but valuable journey.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One of the traditions of the online courses is to submit a bio of yourself during the first week of each class. This is a great opportunity to meet people that are going through the same things and reaching for the same or similar goals. It also helps the adventure feel like more of a group effort.

    Bang for the buck

    Getting an education is not just acquiring some knowlede, but it is also an experience of a lifetime. During the education journey you have the opportunity to meet many people and touch many lives. The value of education, combined with the experience and new acquaintances, is the best bang for your buck you could ever invest in. During my educational journey, I work full-time at a local Chamber of Commerce, volunteer for my local police department, started my own online company, became a senior consultant with Mary Kay, Inc., and found out that I am going to be a grandma for the first time. It has been a busy, but valuable journey.

    What to do for fun

    It is important to have moments of rest and relaxation. For many that can consist of going to the beach or attending a local function, but for some it is as simple as avoiding all technology and sitting in the backyard with iced tea and the family pet. If you do not give yourself some rest and relaxation, school can eventually become too overwhelming. Take a few minutes a day to treat yourself special.

    Food and Dining

    During my education journey, I had to search for a variety of locations that were wi-fi friendly and study friendly. During this journey, I learned of a variety of food venues and types of cuisines. It is amazing how many people are actually out in the community doing homework assignments and/or working on projects over the internet in public venues. More and more venues are catering to the needs of college students.

    Dorm Life

    I began at an off campus site and during the last year swithed to an online status, therefore, I did not experience the Dorm life. While I understand that there are distractions everywhere, I believe that Dorm life can actually help a student stay better focused because they are less likely to be involved with the daily distractions of homelife.

    Academic Rigor

    Homework is just that work you do at home or away from school in order to accomplish a class grade. If the word work is in it, then it most likely will not be as easy as pie. It is important to stay focused and dedicated to accomplishing the necessary assignments, and whenever possible, go above and beyond. It will only make you stronger and help you to be more educated.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep in touch regularly with your guidence councelor, they are your best asset. Make use of the Life Resource number UofP offers. And don't give up! Anything of value is more valuable after struggling to obtain it. Education is VALUABLE. One can never know too much...

    In three sentences

    UofP is dedicated to the success of their students. Their guidence councelors are very understanding and helpful. After trying other schools, UofP was the won who made my dream finally come true.

Do not listen to blogs or unreliable resources, but rather hard evidence on the college or university of your choice. University of Phoenix works with what I want to complete in life. I definitely recommend this university for anyone who wants the flexibility of the online environment along with attentive advisers to help with the processes of college.

    I recently graduating from a tech school for Medical assisting. This school was down to earth, small, and felt like home at times. The learning and curriculum were terrible though. We constantly helped each other in many ways. One person could not even read well. It was great to go and escape reality, but we did not learn much, and it was expensive...with University of Phoenix...they had it all, the learning, the friendships, and is reasonable on price...

    Non traditional campus. No fraternities or sororities.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are online blogs and chat rooms students can participate with. There are workshops students can attend either online or at a ground campus to further their learning.

    Great for these types of students

    University of Phoenix is great for students who are more nontraditional. If you have full time job and can not go to school. You can go online, or you can choose to go to campus once a week for four hours to go to class. University of Phoenix is great for business people who travel, stay at home moms, students with disabilities, etc. You can go online and never miss a beat in your life.

    Bang for the buck

    I think University of Phoenix is a good place to go, if you are disciplined. You don't have regularly scheduled classes. Usually just once a week. Depending on your major, the number of classes you're taking at once and, whether you are undergraduate, graduate or doctorate student. You have to stay focused and it is worth every penny.

    What to do for fun

    You do the usual for fun. You get to meet new people when you go to class, so maybe you will make new friends. Since this is a commuter campus, there are no real student activities on campus. This is a non traditional university.

    This is a commuter campus. There are no dining halls or cafeterias.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at the University of Phoenix. Everyone either commutes or goes online.

    Academic Rigor

    The University of Phoenix is different from other universities. I have 5 week classes. I go to campus once a week for five weeks. All the other time, I'm on my own for homework and group projects. You have to be focused and stay up on your work. If you need help, don't be afraid to ask. The teachers are for the most part there to help and will do all they can to make your learning experience a good one. Depending on the classes you are taking. You will have to gauge for yourself the amount of time you put into studying and homework. Learning Teams are mandatory. Be ready to work with others. Learning Teams are a good tool for socialization and expanding your horizons on many different fronts. Different people have different ideas. Embrace the Learning Teams concept of learning, it makes for a well rounded education. 3.5

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice for prospective students is to stay on top of your educational advisor and your financial aid advisor. They are the ones who can help or hurt you in the long run. Make sure they have you in classes you can actually use towards graduation and make sure your money is right, so you don't end up owing any more than you were told. Also when it is time for refunds. Stay on top of the financial aid department. It's your money. Not theirs to hold on to. Most importantly, stay focused on your goals. If you don't have a list of goals or a goal to finally reach. Make a list of long term and short term goals. This will prove to be very helpful if you start to lose site of your purpose.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix is a decent College. I think they need to get a better system of picking schedules. Their advisers should listen if you tell them you have a disability, they should not schedule you in a class that is an elective that you will definitely not do well in because of your learning disability.
