    Bang for the buck

    The cost of school is significantly higher than going to a community college but for the convenience of attending on line, especially as a working parent it is worth the price.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you know what you need for financial assistance and don't rely on the school to handle things for you or you may not get the aid you need in time. Take advantage of all the resources available.

    In three sentences

    Financial Aid department is slow at getting things done for financial assistance. Group Activities for classes don't enforce all member participation. Advisors and Faculty are available and open to helping as much as you need.

    What to do for fun

    University of Phoenix is a serious college. It is aimed towards academics so, there aren't any after school activities for students. There are no sports available. One thing that students can sign up for are workshop classes if the students decide that they need more practice in a specific area.

    Food and Dining

    I am an online university of phoenix student so, I do not know what the food and dining at university of phoenix is like. I would also suggest calling the school to ask what the food and dining is like. I think that a school representative would be happy to tell new and upcoming students what the food and dining is like at university of phoenix.

    Dorm Life

    I am currently an online student at university of phoenix. All of the information that is online for university of phoenix is very organized so, I would suspect that the dorm life would also be very neat and organized. I think that a good way to ask about the dorm life would be to go online, find a representative's phone number and ask them about the dorm life. I would also suggest looking at pictures online to see what the dorms look like.

    Academic Rigor

    It is very important for students to aim for high grades at University of Phoenix. It is important for students to aim for high grades at University of Phoenix because the standards at University of Phoenix are high. It is very important for all students to keep at least a C average. Students should work hard on all of their assignments that are completed. I think that it is very important for students to use the online library before submitting their work so that they will receive good grades in their classes. It is also important for students to participate in daily class discussions and also substantive messages in order to keep a good grade in their classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    I believe that prospective students will like attending university of phoenix. I think that they will like the fact that they will have a person to talk to about their financial situation in school and also another person to talk to about their academics. I also think that they will enjoy having an online library to help them with their English classes. The online library is very useful when students have to write essays for classes. I think that the library is also useful because it helps students proof read their work before they submit it to the teacher. The online library also has things such as encyclopedias if students need to add more details to the essays that they have to write.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix is a great college to attend. The college provides each student with a financial adviser and also an academic adviser. The university also has an online library for students to help them with the work that they need to complete.

    What to do for fun

    I enjoy spending quality time with my friends and family. On rare occasions I enjoy tabletop role playing games, but those are luxuries as time is precious while working through school.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining ranges between homemade and fast food tasting, but that is likely due to the fact that I am attending online, not on campus and my food is either prepared by me or by a local fast food restaurant.

    Dorm Life

    I cannot say anything on dorm life as I am attending online. With my experience, working full time, taking courses full time, and raising two children (one with special needs) does not leave much room for life beyond those responsibilities, but others may not feel the same pressure.

    Academic Rigor

    Covering a semester's worth of content in a five week period is no walk in the park. It is true that only one class is normally taken at a time, but the high demand means that students must learn to manager their time quickly.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should ensure they have plenty of time available for homework. Unlike traditional school where a student may have a week to cover a chapter in a book, University of Phoenix's online courses are only five weeks long which means several chapter may need to be covered each week. I also recommend a balanced schedule. Students should plan time for relaxing in addition to scholastic work.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix's online campus is a fast paced and challenging experience. The courses focus on relating the content to real world experiences and situations.

    Food and Dining

    No food or dining if you are doing online courses.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms needed if taking online classes.

    Academic Rigor

    It can be a challenge if you do not follow the syllabus or the class calendar.

    Tips for prospective students

    Read all documents and apply for only what you need not what you want. Remember you have to pay back you federal loans. Choose a degree that you will be satisfied with and that you are interested in. Never be afraid to ask for help.

    You definitely get your moneys worth from University of Phoenix.

    Food and Dining

    I do online classes so I can't rate this.

    Dorm Life

    I can't rate this because I do online classes.

    Academic Rigor

    The online classes are very hard because you have 9- 18 weeks worth of classes to learn in 5 weeks but it is tangible! They challenge you but you remember what you learn and in each class you build from the last class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Call and get an enrollment adviser, especially if you are going to be doing strictly online. My enrollment adviser has been a huge help to me and I still contact her with questions today!

    In three sentences

    I would rate this college a 9 out of 10. They are very easy to understand transfer students coming from different colleges and are very patient. The only reason for them not getting a 10 is that the teachers are not very flexible on due dates.

    Classes are a bit expensive but are short so you can finish faster.

    Academic Rigor

    With short courses of only 5 weeks per class you condense an entire term of work into that short time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay on top of your studies if you choose the online option. You have to treat it as if you go on campus on the regular bases or you will fall behind and with the short course length.

    In Tucson we have a safe campus but still have security guards although they are not allowed to engage in conflict and are there to prevent and contact 911.

    Academic Rigor

    When I have researched for my field what companies like and what schools they like employing more for, they like University of Phoenix more than traditional schools.

    Academic Rigor

    The online program is designed for students to take one class at a time, but sometimes the workload can be a bit overwhelming for busy adults. Higher undergrad programs have shorter class calendars, but more reading and work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have a place away from any and all distractions when you start getting into class reading or assignment composition. Be patient with others in team settings, and make sure you double check your team member's references and quotes! I've found numerous references in error and have seen word-for-word copying from websites with no quotation whatsoever...if I was not diligently double checking questionable work, the entire team could have been kicked out of the school for plagiarism! Be sure to study APA Style and Formatting Guidelines: 6th Edition! You will have to know it inside-out!

    In three sentences

    The class structure is great for working or busy people. The new online class setup is difficult to get used to and students are having issues locating their assignments. Some of the classes have instructor-designed syllabus' completely different from course descriptions and prescribed goals and most classes rely solely on students reading the online textbooks for teaching, which means most of the instructors are simply facilitators, though some actually teach.

    It is a local tradition of the University of Phoenix Online participants to trip over at least two cats and spill my tea before posting an assignment.

    Bang for the buck

    University of Phoenix charges a ridiculous amount of money. If I had done more research, I doubt I would be attending here currently. If they hadn't made a wonderful improvement to their online program, I likely wouldn't be able to continue at Phoenix at all. I am also willing to retract this portion of the review if it turns out that University of Phoenix compensates it's academic staff in a manner commensurate with their experience and education in the same fashion as any major accredited university would find prudent.

    University of Phoenix is very strict about it's attendance requirements. The classes themselves vary according to the instructor, and the subject. However, the Discussion method of participation does allow a significant amount of room for student interaction which can include more precise and valuable information in even the most basic of classes.

The other great thing University of Phoenix does is help you set up your resume and cover letter for you to be able to look for prospective jobs.

    Great for these types of students

    University of Phoenix is great for students who are self disciplined and focused on their education. I think what sets University of Phoenix from other schools is that they have great counselors and the way the website is set up helps make it convenient for those who are learning online. I actually find it better to learn online rather than going to class.

It will be very easy to pass if you keep on top of it but it can be just as easy to fail if you do not keep up with your work.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best tip I can give to prospective students it to complete the discussion questions given every week. These are grades that can cost you an A oppose to a B. Also, team participation is something that all students should keep on top of. If your teammates do not know what your doing it can be hard for the other members.

    I an unsure of this since I attend online.

    Bang for the buck

    Price wise, the University of Phoenix online is much more affordable than most other colleges and universities. They are also incredibly helpful when it comes to financial aid. As soon as I was enrolled and getting ready to process my fafsa, a financial aid advisor called me to ensure that I knew all of my options and to explain that since I had been to college before for a few years, how many more times I could use my pell grant, when I would be considered maxed out for student loans, etc. I never had this type of help or cooperation at the prior university I had been to.

    What to do for fun

    I'm sure that if I were to live on campus there would be plenty of fun things to do, as Phoenix is a rather large city with a lot of life going on around it. However, since I attend online, I work full time and then come home to do my school work.

    Food and Dining

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan to attend here online, make sure it is something you absolutely want to pursue.

    Education is a difficult journey, but it helps a lot if you go about it in the way that suites you best. I tried the traditional college setting right after high school and it didn't work out. I didn't really care about my education and was doing what I thought was expected of me. About 5 years later, I am taking classes online and loving it. I understand and appreciate what it means to be a student and the University of Phoenix has gone a long way to help me get there. Figure out the way you learn best and then just do it. And if you need to take time off from school before you start, do it. Just make sure to count the cost, either way.

    You get out of it what you put into it. You must put the effort in every day or you will not succeed. Make sure to print out the syllabus and know what is going to be required of you each week with your assignments and any term papers that may be due. When you do orientation along with Composition, you will learn the foundation of good study habits and learn how to use the resources that is available to you.

    Tips for prospective students

    For any class that you take, take advantage of the resources that are available to you. For example, if you are taking Math 116 or 117, make sure to do the Adaptaive Math Practice prior to starting the class. Each lesson will prepare you for the actual class and gives you examples to practice with. You can write down the problem and use it to speak with a tutor that will help you do step by step instructions on how to get the correct answer. They will not do the math for you. You have to understand the concept and if not they will review it with you so that you are not so confused and able to come up with the solution yourself. Engage with your teacher and let them know when you are having difficulty; you can also reach out to your fellow classmates in the discussion forum or via email.

    A tip for prospective students would be to look for all scholarships that alumni and the University of Phoenix offers. I have seen a few after I enrolled but everyone should be made aware to help out their financial needs.

    The Oakland Satellite campus is located in down town Oakland. Much like the city of San Francisco, everything closes at 5pm. The campus is located in the same building as Pandora music, so it has perks. There is a vending machine you can pre-order food from and walking distance leads you to the bars in downtown.

    Academic Rigor

    The five week intervals are intense but they teach you how to react under pressure. Every week there is a deadline that you must meet individually and with your group.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to work with people; do not let your ego rule your perspective, actions, and collaborations. Review your professors and the classes as it is the way the University keeps the school working for the student. Be prepared to communicate with your team mates, and be kind in your interactions with them.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix focuses on group oriented learning to enhance the aspects of real world group collaboration. It has been useful for me as I struggle with trusting other people and working as a group towards a goal. This process has dramatically changed my perspective towards being a part of a group, which is essential and normative in the world today, especially dealing in human services.

    Dorm Life

    My bedroom is great.

    Academic Rigor

    Pretty good overall, but some of it depends on the teacher. A few are very lazy and do the bare minimum and won't deviate from a script they were given and cling to the garbage that is in the text. Some don't even deviate from the text or take it level deeper or explain anything...just a right or wrong for your responses or a good or bad. However most are not like that at all.

    Tips for prospective students

    The classes can seem easy but they are writing intensive. The professors are really nice and knowledgeable for the most part, but many will also not deviate from the material that they are required to teach regardless of the accuracy. Some of the material in a few courses in the text is so wrong that you can't even do an online search to find out how inaccurate it is, but fortunately this is not too often. Other students and teachers are also great and good to get along with. Call your advisers frequently and try to make everything clear for them. Look for as many scholarships as possible as they will only direct you to their website listing which is not extensive. I would recommend setting up a system for your personal self to make sure you meet all the requirements every week. I try to do the readings over the weekend for the upcoming week (which I downloaded ahead of time and then put on my phone..they are in PDF format). Then on Monday I answer the questions that are required. Tuesday I will do participation and try to save a few extra participation responses as extra saved drafts...that way I can just logon later in the week and click post for a good reply and valid participation that takes 5 minutes. If the reading is not done on the weekend, I will also take Monday and Tuesday to do some of the reading. Thursday and Friday I try to reserve for the homework that is due (depending on the schedule and when the assignments are due...some are due on wednesday). I try to spend 2-3 hours on those nights doing what I need to do. I will spend more time if I have more time, which usually subtracts from time on other days.

    In three sentences

    UoP has a great system and idea in place that is very effective for many people. The courses are fair and fast paced but can be overwhelming or oversimplified. There is an adviser for everything and they should be utilized for everything.

    Campus Safety

    I rate this as an A+. Like I said doing on-line classes I am safe at home. But I am more than sure that campuses have great security. When I took my high school diploma at an University they had great security they helped me with finding my class and taking me back to my car when it was dark.

    Greek Life

    I rate this as an A+ but to be honest I have no idea what this is. If someone good tell me or teach me that would be wonderful and I would appreciate that a lot.

    Clubs and Activities

    I rate this A+. Doing on-line classes I don�t belong to any clubs or any activities like a real campus. I do activities outside the on-line classes like swimming, volleyball going to church and going to the American Legion Club.

    Great for these types of students

    I rate this as an A+. I think that the University of Phoenix would be great for students that don�t have or cannot afford transportation. When they can�t afford a dorm or books they provide e books for you in your tuition. They don�t have to worry about babysitting or day care expenses or food because they can have all of this at home as well. I think it would be more practical to go this route.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I rate this A+. know them personally like on a real campus. Since I do on-line classes I don�t have to go to a campus. But my on-line campus is great. You get to meet nice people and your instructors are nice too.

    Bang for the buck

    I rate this A+. I am writing a book which I feel will help me with my patients. When I graduate from college. It is hard work. It is not an easy thing to do. Because I stay up at night and I am tired in the morning but have to do school work and chores to do. The book is to help veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues they have in life. Being a PSTD patient myself I can relate to their issues. We won the war but still have the battle.

    What to do for fun

    I rate this as an A+. I love helping out the veterans like on the holidays serving them food and making gifts for them or dressing up as an elf to help participate in the holidays at the hospitals for veterans. I like card games, nascar, working outside, spending time with my family and dancing. I like to read and write.

    Food and Dining

    I rate this as an A+. Well with being at home I can eat here and is healthier for me. But from time to time I go out and eat lunch just to take a break from my studies. With being in an on line class it makes it easier for me than running around all the time.

    Dorm Life

    I rate this as an A+. I am doing on-line classes so my bedroom is my dorm. I get more privacy there than in my office. I still get to have my friends over just like on campus for study time and to go over other strategies.

    Academic Rigor

    I rate this A+. I have to make a plan and stick with it. I have a schedule that I made to follow for my studies. I also have a schedule for cleaning and cooking and other chores that I have to do every day. I have to stick with these otherwise it wonÂ?Â?t get done. It is hard sometimes because I live by the beach and I would rather go to the beach than do my homework or other chores. Sometimes I canÂ?Â?t go to a show or out to dinner with my friends but my education is much more important.

    Tips for prospective students

    I rate this A+. It is easy to do on-line courses it offers you to be able to stay at home if you have kids or parents that you have to take care of. It is easy to access every day so you donÂ?Â?t have to go out in the rain or snow just stay in the comforts of your own home. You make up a schedule and the rest of the day is yours to do what you want.

    In three sentences

    I rate them as an A+ for being there for me. I feel they are the best fit for me in the profession I am going in to. They are always there when I need help either with the website or just a question. They are a great college.

    Dorm Life

    I personally do not know how dorm life is on campus because I am going to school online and I am living at home. But being at home saves the expenses at being at an actual campus and having to deal with moving in and transferring all of my stuff to another far location and live right at home. And it is because of the university of phoenix's online system that I can be allowed to do this.

    Academic Rigor

    The rigor of my academic course can be quite challenging but I love a challenge. It is a full time job of going to school online and there is plenty of work to do even though through my program I get two classes at a time. But if you are to plan accordingly, then you will succeed in every class because there is a standard routine to it all.

My idea of fun is curling up with my husband and our two beautiful children and watching a great comedy flick.

    Tips for prospective students

    Schedule your classes around your life, not the other way around. Though school is important, don't neglect your relationships. Keep your life simple and don't over-work yourself. If you have been out of school for over a year it's always best to take a refresher course or to simply quiz yourself before enrolling or starting class. And when not in class keep your brain stimulated by doing puzzles, sudoku, word finds, or simply reading a good book. Its very true when they say, use it or lose it.

    Great for these types of students

    It's great for students that either don't like classroom settings, or learn better on their own.

    Two classes per 9 weeks is steady but it makes it easier to keep up with than highschool ever did.

    What to do for fun

    There are several workshops available for students to attend before school hours and on some weekends to interact with other students.

    Food and Dining

    Classes take place in the evenings between the hours of 6 and 10 pm so vending machine access is all we have.

    Dorm Life

    Because UofP focuses on working adults there are no dorms available for students to live in.

    Academic Rigor

    University of Phoenix is a very rigorous program because the classes are 5 weeks long with no breaks between sessions, but it is worth it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students that are considering University of Phoenix should make sure that they are honest with their enrollment counselors and resource specialists about availability and internet access. Also, be open to working on teams with people of different ages and backgrounds - this is what it is like in the real world.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix provides a great program for working adults wanting to further their education in order to advance their career. The first year sequence along with outstanding staff and faculty prepare students for what it means to hold a degree in their chosen field and how to handle the responsibility. Great technology and curriculum combine to make an outstanding learning environment for all students to learn and grow.

    Bang for the buck

    More expensive then a traditional public university however the ability to flex your time to get assignments done is very useful for people working a full time job and also have a family.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic schedule can be tough with the compressed 5 week courses, however you only take one class at a time. If you are not able to build a schedule for yourself and keep yourself on track you can easily get lost in the fast paced setup on the Online system.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have an erratic schedule with work and home life then the University of Phoenix could be for you. You will pay more then a traditional college and you will only get out of it as much as you put into it. With the system they have in place you can easily get a degree and come away with very little education or you can get your degree and come away with a very good education. It is all dependent on your willingness to learn.

    In three sentences

    The University of Phoenix is a good over all school for learning core classes and getting your education done part time. However with my field of study, in Computer Information Science, it is hard to get a deep grasp and understanding of the field with the five week compressed courses. Finally the learning teams can either be a disaster our a great deal of help when working on assignments but it will not really prepare you for team work at a real job.

    What to do for fun

    Wow, this could cover a lot. I love to paint and work puzzles. These two things help me in relieving stress. On my free weekends I go hiking. Yes, I do allow some free time for myself, family, and friends.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would say to any prospective student is to be honest with yourself as to what you really want out of life. Live every day and remember to be happy! Remember to leave some FREE time for yourself, family, and friends. Do things that make you happy and those that help in relieving stress from your life.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix offered me the chance of a lifetime to go back to school and get my Teaching Degree. UoP has the best staff and their quality of knowledge is above any I have ever dealt with. The online instructors are always responsive and willing to help at any time.

    Academic Rigor

    There classes are hard but they are not hard to understand. The professor helps you understand if you are lost which sometimes I am. The classes are not just put together and they actually teach you something unlike another school I attended that seemed I was in a middle school classroom. These classes challenge me to try harder.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't try to go to all these different schools thinking that they will help you. Once you are enrolled they stop caring. University of Phoenix is well known and plus they help you even after you have started classes.

    In three sentences

    I love this school. I have tried transferring to other colleges and they all seemed good at first but there was no help from the staff. In University of Phoenix online they were so helpful and they helped me with any question I had. They were never too busy to answer any concern I may have. If my counselor was unavailable for any reason they made sure someone was there to help me. I really enjoy this school and I have already recommended it to many family and friends.

    There are many things this school offers. There is a huge on-line library along with help building a resume. All the tools we need in one place. There is another place called the Phoenix Connect where students are able to collaborate with one another just like a Facebook. We are able to connect with other successful students and even join clubs.

    Food and Dining

    Food and Dinning is great because you eat from you house or take out. I attend UOP online so they don't offer food and dinning its all on you.

    Dorm Life

    No Dorm life UOP is not a traditional college. I attend UOP online so my dorm life is my own house and it works for me. Even if you choose to do on campus there is still no Dorm life. so I guess that part sucks but that's all apart of being an nontraditional college.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic Rigor isn't that bad. UOP courses are 5 weeks each and you work with a learning team. your first class may seem a little overwhelmed because it seems to be a little fast but when taking it a week at a time the work will get easier and time will fly. However, don't get me work there are the classes that will give you a hard time but just make sure to talk to the teacher and always use you learning team members to help you out when you feel a little lost or confused because that's what they are there for, so that we learn from each other and build networks with people.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would tell prospective students to get to know the people who are going to be on you success team. They will be with you the whole way whenever you need help call on them. Also get to know your group members and build you A team each class by making sure they are in your next classes. The school is great even if it may be scary at first take it one week at a time, and you will be fine.

    In three sentences

    UOP is a great school. They give you such a big support system that help you feel safe and ready for each class. I enjoy going to this school and I have learned a lot and gain friends from all over the place.

This meant that I too would have to become degreed to compete with my peers and other generations.

    The University of Phoenix will give any prospective student the opportunity to become responsible and grow.

    Do a lot of research when trying to find which school suites you the most. Once you find the school for you, work hard and never give up! Use your time wisely to gain your degree! If you`re a student like me and have children or working. Make sure you keep a schedule, to get studying and assignments done. Don`t be scared to ask questions. There are other students who want to know the same thing and are too scared to ask! Be optimistic and come up with a reward plan, so you stay motivated. Remember, a degree is something that can never be taken from you. Once you have it, it`s always there and good luck!

    In three sentences

    I enjoy learning from my instructor! My student advisor has helped me so much and I love the fact that they build relationships based on school, that makes it more comfortable to talk to them about almost anything! They have a great online learning system, it`s a family oriented classroom.

    Bang for the buck

    The online courses are a little more expensive then traditional college. But being able to work from home at your own pace makes it worth it.

    Academic Rigor

    Being able to work on your time is the best part of this college. But, you have to make sure you have a strong balance on your work, school and home life. Just because you can work on your own time doesn't mean that it is going to be easy. There are many projects that take time and you have to find the right balance to get everything accomplished.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that online classes fit your life style. There is a lot of studying that you have to do on your own. With that being said make sure you are a good note taker and use your notes and partner with other students in your class to make sure you have a understanding of the information.

    Campus Safety

    I use online therefore I have an online campus

    Great for these types of students

    Military or untraditional students that have schedules which prevent attendance in a traditional classroom setting.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel that for military personnel this is the one of the best colleges that you can choose. As I have mentioned in the past posts, you truly have to pace yourself appropriately. There are only a couple of colleges in which they truly work with the pace of the military and this is one of them. When you look at people that are not military, for example professionals that are trying to seek further education then this college is a good choice. When you start talking about Masters Degrees then you have to start looking at different options depending on the degree, because there are only a couple of options through UofP. However I highly recommend UofP

    Academic Rigor

    The fact that it is self paced makes it so that you are truly responsible for yourself and for the military it is fantastic. However it is easy to fall into the trap of losing track of time and therefore you either run the risk of not getting work turned in on time, or completing sloppy work. Ensure that you are truly pacing yourself appropriately.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always be ready to be flexible. University of Phoenix (online) is designed to be flexible and work around the student and that is something that I was not able to say about other colleges that I attended in the past. Understand that you will still have to make the appropriate time for every class, although the classes are at your own pace, it is a good thing and bad thing, if you do not self pace yourself.

    In three sentences

    Excellent at working with the military Academic Advisors are always available and this is an amazing thing when you are in Hawaii and working behind the mainland on time. Instructors are extremely helpful and knowledgeable, I have not had a bad class yet.

I had the unfortunate event of my dad dying literally the night I logged into school for the first time, the staff was amazing and sweet and let me postpone for a month, awesome, Dedicate time, you have to lknow this is very labor intensive, fast paced, and you get done in a reasonable time. Never ever boring. Have fun, be social with good boundarys, I majored in clincal work; not counseling other students, be smart

    Anyone that works a full time job is a perfect candidate for online schooling. One can fit school into their schedule instead of fitting their schedule around school.

    The University of Phoenix is a well known online college as well as a ground campus. My experience with Phoenix has been mostly positive with the exception of adviser changes every few months and constant phone calls. I would recommend anyone to find a community college to get all of your pre-rec's out of the way as Phoenix University is rather expensive.

    Academically, University of Phoenix online program is excellent and the faculty has been wonderful throughout my time attending the school. I receive frequent calls from my academic adviser; making sure everything is alright with my schedule and leaving room for any questions or concerns regarding my schedule. Attending an online program is not an easy task, especially when life is constantly throwing curves, however I have been able to receive A's in my classes which was something that did not seem possible in community college. The instructors are great, some are more harsh than others but it is for the students' own good.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tip #1: use EVERY bit of resources on the UOP site, especially if he or she has trouble with mathematics. Workshops are available 24/7 as well as other sources to help accomplish assignments. Tip #2: always make sure to check in with his or her learning teams; communication is crucial in an online setting and it can be detrimental if communication lacks Tip #3: keep on top of any class/team/individual assignments because they will pile up quickly. Do not procrastinate. Make and stick to a self-made schedule that will help him or her keep track of the assignment he or she needs to complete. Tip #4: do not be afraid to get somewhat aggressive and take control when working in his or her learning teams. Things will get rough and frustrating at times but as a team leader the individual must learn to take action and do what is necessary to get the teams assignments submitted on time.

    In three sentences

    Choosing to transfer to University of Phoenix online program was the best choice I could have made; it has allowed me to further my education in less time rather than attending a community college for four years or more. I have accumulated a 3.57 GPA that was something I could not accomplish in a community college setting. The faculty has been great and supportive throughout my time attending the program; making sure to answer any questions or concerns.

    UoP provides a do-it-according-to-your-own-time schedule for online students. Working adults who have little extra time on their hands and/or demanding families can really benefit from earning a degree (or two or three!) online. Students that manage their time well and enjoy reading and writing would also benefit from this school. Between one and three chapters must be read each week, and one or two writing assignments are due each week as well. Those that excel in reading and writing would do well at UoP.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Taking courses online is a little unusual, though it is quickly becoming more and more common. (I just saw a commercial on TV tonight for online school for K-12!) I love that I do not have to commute to school or spend additional money on gasoline, and I do not have to worry about getting home late. I hate getting home late, scarfing down dinner, and getting into bed, worrying about how little sleep I will get. Doing homework and assignments online eliminates all that stress for me.

    Bang for the buck

    I love the flexibility UoP online gives me. I work full time and commute to work, so I am in the car for at least an hour a day. That may not seem like much to some, but after working all day, I do not want to have to go anywhere else but home. Taking classes online allows me to earn a degree while maintaining a social life. I can read class material, learn a lot, get my assignments done, and still spend time with my family, fiance, and friends. I love the course structure and have enjoyed working with the instructors. Any questions I come across (regarding finances, academics, specific course assignments, etc.) have been answered. UoP online has been great for me and I am excited to earn my second degree!

    What to do for fun

    Phoenix Connect is a great way to get to know other students. I can ask questions about classes, degree programs, and get views and opinions. It is like Facebook for UoP students. It is a great resource and I have learned a lot from others. It is a nice option to have when I am looking to share program details with other student.

    Dorm Life

    I take courses online, so everything I do is from home.

    I feel challenged but not overwhelmed. To me, that is what school should be. I want to learn, test myself, and expand my knowledge and skill sets. I do not want to out my brain on overload or become so stressed out that I cannot handle school. UoP's curriculum has allowed me to learn a lot while keeping my sanity!

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to do a lot of reading and writing! Also, read ahead of time so that you do not fall behind. Try to get assignments done early, too, so you can still enjoy spending time with family, friends, and doing other fun activities.

    If you log on four days out of the week and participate in the weekly attendance requirements, which all depends on the diploma you are going for, you will do fine. Also as long as you turn in your assignments on time you will do fine, though if you turn it in late you will get deducted points or you may have a chance of not being able to turn it in. The school will offer you help and tutors in the areas that you need help in.

    Depending on the instructor that you are assigned the workload can vary greatly. All instructors follow a basic curriculum but some require more work than others. Be ready to write paper after paper after paper. Also, if you are not accustomed to working in groups where students have varying schedules (because of geographical location) then you may have a difficult time with learning teams.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared Phoenix is very costly. Advisers change frequently so you may not always have the same academic or financial adviser. It is difficult to manage your finances if this happens to you. There is a strict attendance policy and plagiarism is never tolerated. Some courses have intensive readings. be prepared to participate in learning discussions because you are required to reply eight times a week (two times on four days).

    Know your sentence structure and APA formatting. without this you will fail. Instructors are big on proper sentence structure and formatting. even a science instructor marks off points for spelling, structure, and punctuation.

    If your brain can only handle one task at a time, this is the school for you. One class every five weeks works best for me. I tried the traditional university with three to four classes per semester but my grades slipped out of sight. Now they are back in the A's again.

    Academic Rigor

    High quality faculty and course work that can be applied directly to your work.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Have your financial aid in order before your get started. Be prepared to do all the searching on your own. You will not get help from your financial aid advisor. 2. Be prepared to study, read, and write every day. This is not easy, but it is worth it in the end.

    In three sentences

    High quality faculty members with real-world experience make course work interesting and meaningful. Financial aid office does very little to help you find funds, and there are very few optioins other than loans for graduate level students. Cohorts are great to work with, and learning from each other improves the quality and rigor of the courses.

    All the college's I looked at wanted to take the full grant money and the full amount of my student loans. Some of the colleges even wanted me to take out peronal loans on top of those two to attend. The University of Phoenix didn't do any of those things to me. I definately feel the University of Phoenix is by far the best bang for your buck.

    The school is really worth attending and everyone should test it out for the three week orientation they have to offer. By then, you should know if the University is right for you.

Number 2: Never back down from any homework challenges you may face, because there is help from the Writing Shop, Math Shop, classmates, teachers, and your advisors at your fingertips.

    University of Phoenix Online-Axia College is worth the money you put in for it. A star rating of 4.5 out of 5 is just about right for the teachers, advisors, academics, and classmates you enjoy spending time talking with and interacting with to earn the degree you are looking for. The best part of it all is the curriculum and time you are given for each class to learn all about the materials suited for your program.

    Bang for the buck

    I think it is a good education, with many additional programs for tutoring, mentoring, job search, and guidance. Although it can be a rigorous chore, financial aid and loans are available. The cost is fairly competitive with the rest of the market, no more, no less.

    What to do for fun

    I attend school online, so this does not apply. I do the same things for fun that I always did. I just have much less time to do it.

    Academic Rigor

    Some weeks will be very simple, and some will be exhausting, long, and laborious. Every teacher interprets university policy their own way, but none of them will admit they do it. So in each new class, you must make sure to find out the individual instructor's interpretation of policies regarding participation.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you understand the time and effort needed to attend and succeed in these classes. Make a list of questions and get them answered before you sign anything. Research the necessary exams and certifications that are required to find work in your chosen field. They will not automatically inform you they exist.

    Since I obtain an online campus only I prepare my own meals so of course the food and dining are excellent.

    Tips for prospective students

    Use all resources available to you. The university saw fit to build this big learning environment and give the tools to succeed so why not use them? Using some of your free time to refresh your math or English skills are very helpful when it comes time to take your core classes. There's nothing more frustrating then not understanding and watching the deadline get closer. Ask questions use the tutor forums or use the self paced centers of excellence.

    University of Phoenix is an excellent institute to obtain an education from.

    Campus Safety

    The campus was secure, monitored, and well maintained. It has a very welcoming feeling when you are there, and has a lot of space for everyone to get things done!

    Greek Life

    Unfortunately, this is another topic that I would not have anything satisfactory to contribute.

    Clubs and Activities

    Unfortunately, I do not have any input for the clubs & activities section, because I attend online and do not have a whole lot of time to explore the extras that are offered by the University.

    Great for these types of students

    UoP is great for all types of students. They offer such a variety of majors and concentrations, that you can go to the University for almost anything you want. It seems like the experience there will be just as good, no matter which focus you have.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I really don't have anything to contribute to this section, simply because I have only visited the campus a few times, and did not spend a lot of time wandering around.

    Bang for the buck

    The school definitely is not the cheapest around. You can go to a Community school to receive general education to save you some money, but I believe the experience is different. UoP offers an online library that you can go to and learn virtually whatever you would like. You don't have to confine yourself to one specific learning realm.

    What to do for fun

    One thing I noticed at UoP that I have never seen at another college is their provided theater inside the college! You can see a movie in between classes! This gives you something to do if you have two classes in one day that have space between them. You can also take workshops online to make you a more well rounded student, or even give you skills that you may not have anticipated.

    Food and Dining

    I give this a 5 star rating even though I do not attend campus. The reason being that the Livonia, Michigan campus that I did visit, offered a plethora of options when it came to dining. The campus had restaurants inside the building, as well as so many options nearby for both fine dining & fast food.

    Dorm Life

    Personally, I do not attend a campus for school. I visit the school once or twice every few months to make sure everything is in order, but other than that, I go completely online. It makes being a parent and going to school much easier, without sacrificing time with family.

    Academic Rigor

    The University definitely challenges your skills to read & show that you know what is going on in the classroom. Especially online, you are completely reliant on yourself to learn the material that is required, and there is no classroom to help you do that. This could result in some harsh times if you aren't self motivated.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your research, and just make sure that the courses match what you are looking for in the long run. When I chose my Degree, I spoke with an Advisor for almost 2 hours strictly on which concentration to choose within my degree program.

    In three sentences

    UoP offers an excellent range of degree options. The online courses are just as engaging and require the same amount of effort as campus based classes. The University is extremely willing to help with any and all students, no matter their circumstance.

    Great for these types of students

    University of Phoenix is an excellent school if you have outside obligations, such as work, family, or other personal matters. The asynchronous format means the classroom is always live, and as long as you meet the deadline, you choose when to do your school work and participation whenever.

    Dorm Life

    University of Phoenix is an online university that offers some on-site classes. They do not have dorms, as most students are online.

    Academic Rigor

    This completely depends on the facilitator. The university has an overall set of guidelines that all students must follow, including strict participation requirements. There are set deadlines that cannot be waived, but assignments are graded fairly.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to put aside time each day to complete small portions of the work due for each week. It is tempting to wait until the last minute to start an assignment, but it is not worth the stress to wait that long. Also make sure to keep up with your team assignments and discussion. The more you participate, the more you learn.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix is an excellent choice for students who have to maintain a job while pursuing their college education. Classes provide me with a wealth of information in a user-friendly format no matter what class you take. University of Phoenix understands that you have other obligations outside of the school environment, and at this school you can get a quality education without having to sacrifice whatever else is going on in your life.

    This school is great for busy parents or people who do not have time to go to campus. The classes are very informing and attendance is 4 out of 7 days. The teachers will work with you through tough situations such as family emergencies.

    Bang for the buck

    There are a lot of resources to help with essay writing and more. The workshops provided are very helpful and informative. There are different workshops for different needs. There are scholarships students can apply for to help with their tuition. The counselors and teachers are very encouraging throughout the earning of the degree. It is worth the money because even though it is an online classroom, it still feels like an actual class.

    Academic Rigor

    Everything needed to get an assignment done is available through the information provided by the school. There are all kinds of tools to help write the best essay.

    Tips for prospective students

    Going to school online takes hard-work and determination. Everyone encourages you throughout the year to help you move along and see how classes are going. It is a great online environment and very welcoming. Everyone that I have came into contact with have been very pleasurable to speak to.

    UOP is great for students who are too busy to attend normal course structures. The flexibility of a purely online or an online/on campus hybrid program is really helpful.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to move very quickly through your classes. Each class only lasts 5 weeks so you're covering several chapters per week. You will also be required to complete learning team projects in every class, so be sure you are prepared to work with others on a regular basis. Finally, be prepared to be surprised at how much information you really do cover and retain in such short class periods. The UOP course structure really challenges conventional schooling procedures.

    In three sentences

    The University of Phoenix is perfect for students who are seeking to attend school full time but have other obligations like family or full time employment. The courses move very quickly so if you are looking for an accelerated course program, UOP is just that. It is a private school so the costs are a bit high, but you are receiving so much support with those costs.

    I personally feel that the very high costs of this online University is worth the money if you factor in a positive experience and continued learning on your own time.

    What to do for fun

    Not much time for fun while working and attending school.

    Academic Rigor

    5 week cram courses are not easy at all, especially when you have to accomplish 10 or more essays each week, combined with an individual assignment of 1,000 or more words each week, and a team assignment to match.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay on top of the assignments and adhere to the facilitators course instructions. If they say a DQ is 150-300 words, make sure you fall in that range - no more or no less. Take the team assignments seriously because it is a team effort.

    In three sentences

    University of Phoenix has been one of the most challenging endeavors at this stage in my life. I feel the experience is well worth any/all aggravation that I have experienced to date. I would suggest a serious look at this online University.

    While the cost of tuition is high, the education received is worth it. You don't sit in class wondering when am I going to use this? Professors teach in the field they work in, making what you learn relevant.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms for this school. The classes are remote campuses or online.

    Academic Rigor

    The work load is more than the average college course, but that is because the classes only last 5 weeks. The professors help students learn job related functions which helps them relate to the subjects better.

    Tips for prospective students

    A tip for prospective students would be to borrow wisely and be open to change. College is not the easy ride its thought to be. It takes dedication and financial education to succeed.

    When going to a traditional college you are expected to purchase expensive books. University of Phoenix requires students to purchase materials, but not those big text books that you are only going to read a few chapters from.

    I would encourage prospective students to be ready to do a lot of self-teaching. You do this by reading the material provided by instructors. When you read the information you will succeed.

    Great for these types of students

    University of Phoenix-Axia is great for students that are self starters and need to work online. Full time employees, or those with families make it difficult to attend on campus courses and succeed in obtaining their degree. Online students, if focused, can succeed and feel great about obtaining their degrees.

    I attend the University of Phoenix Axia college, which is an online university. I am not aware of any unusual traditions or locations on any campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips I would recommend is to ask as many questions as you feel. The staff at the University of Phoenix are more than helpful, they are friends that help to guide you onto the right path for your education. Take time for yourself while keeping up with your courses and give yourself credit for the work you do. It is not easy for anyone to work full time, take care of a family and go to school full time.

    Private colleges in my area range from 20K to 50K a year, so U of P is in the lower end of physical campuses I could go to. They offer loads of resources, in fact, too many to name here. I had no idea everything available to me until I started. It is worth every penny in my book.

    Understand it is expensive, but I think all the available services they give to you make it worth every penny.

    Take a list of questions to ask. Make sure you write out the answers that you get and keep it as a quick reference sheet. Ask for copies of FA papers such as drop slips and credit slips prior to starting, just in case you need them. MONITOR you account because your academic advisor will keep adding classes and changing your schedule without you knowing or speaking to you first.

    Great, simple, and easy university to attend. Very helpful when you sign up and get going, but can drag you down quickly with the lack of communication by your Financial and Academic advisors. Totally recommend them anyway because of the ease of completing your degree.

    Each course consists of five classes and students can only miss one. If more than one class is missed, the student will be dropped from that particular course unless they get with their advisor to make the necessary adjustments.

    To me the school is kind of expensive. Each year that I have attended, tuition has gone up for the most part.

    What to do for fun

    There is not a lot to do for fun. The University is not a typical one. Classes are only about 4 hours long once a week.

    Academic Rigor

    Not your typical University. Most of the assignments are written papers.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you like writing papers. Make sure you enjoy working in a team environment. Do not wait until the last minute to do your work.

    Overall as a working adult with a career I did find Phoenix beneficial to my career. Will it help; that remains to be seen. I will say that personally this challenge has given me extra knowledge and helped me to hone my study skills. It has assisted me with understanding protocol and to be a team member as well as leader. For those of you who think Phoenix will make you a super star; STOP! You must put forward a lot of work and hard study to really soak it in. Five weeks is over before I can grow a beard.I will receive my Master degree in Accountanting in 2014 and it's a fantastic experience. I met many people in my online experience and the classes were great! I would absolutely recommend University of Phoenix to anyone who has already gotten a career and is looking to move up. This school is great! I would like to say that UoP is a great school and my counselor always call and check up on me and my financial advisor keeps me in the loop with everything. School is what you make it if you don't apply yourself and you are looking for a quick check and think you don't have to do anything then of course you would have a problem. Classes were challenging and some more so then others and some people may not find college that difficult for them at all so it really depends on the person. College is what you make it and you have to put your best foot forward. University of Phoenix is one of the best colleges online.
