The online program brings to us the facility to take studies without stop the work and keep earning money while we are learning new things. And there is a very good way to the teachers teach on the distance. But the prices are a little high for the attention we receive, all or almost all the things are sent to our emails and I think that we could receive more online classes. But taking all the good and bad things, the online program worth is every cent. I've learned a lot of things in the same time I work and care about my family. One of the best things I've done.
I liked the hours and that I could do this program in the convenience of my own home. Also the instructors took the time to explain the class activities so as to be able to understand assignments. My instructors helped me in achieving my goals in college and I received my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. But the online program could be extended to more programs of interest and also the instructors could even out the homework so that all work is not expected to be done in a few days. I would love to have face timing in class with other schoolmates too so could discuss assignments. But I had a great experience and spent seven years and liked one course having my bachelors degree which was Critical Thinking and that was a class wish I could have completed. But other than that the experience was very pleasant and I really appreciated my instructors.
The online portal allows for a virtual classroom so you can actually see the teacher and other classmates. This makes it easier to understand the notes and also have time to speak freely with one another. The portal is fun and exciting. Easy to switch between subjects and makes scheduling a lot easier. The only issue with this is taking actual test in which we have to go to the school itself to do this. Student login can also take some time to find if you are new, so they should fix the website to where we can easily log into the site. They have it near the very bottom where the "contact us" link normally is. So that could be a bother.
The program enables me to do it on my own time and kind of at my own pace, however there are certain times where classes are scheduled and I have to be logged in at that time to receive credit. The teachers don't really seem to care about their students in my experience. They are hard to reach and rarely offer more help than to tell me what pages to read. I had a family emergency come up and my teacher would not give me an extension on my paper that was due and would not give me any help when I asked questions about the topic. I had an extremely poor experience with University of Phoenix.
My overall experience with the University of Phoenix was great. I got to experience what it felt like to do school online and how it is not much too different from a brick and mortar. You have to be a little more disciplined, organized, and responsible to do school work online. I liked that it was easy to obtain information on how to enroll. It was also easy to set up financial aid and once you were enrolled the instructors and staff were very helpful. I started to feel a little skeptical though once rumors were spread that the institution was not fully accredited.

Fully accredited, online education program for me is the ideal academic pathway for aspiring peoples who needs to do a lot of things every single day without hassles. Although, the main problem with every educational course is the price and the hours, as a whole, the program is very effective. I liked it a lot. My overall experience with the institution is very clear, without any problems and the quality is very good. Very likely to continue here and I want to make more courses but I need to finish this one first.
It has everything I need, has nice and friendly teachers. Also it has flexible classes so, I can attend online classes easily. Classes are offered in the evenings or on the weekend so it fit into my schedule and has also management and leadership skills to get ahead of my project management. But online classes are need to more improve with flexible hours and also it need to improve finding my campus easily. Management and leadership skills also need to more improve.
The Online Program allowed me to study and focus on the classes and workload without worrying about commuting to class. However, during my Online Program - Most of the projects require teamwork and most of the time we had many of the students/teammates on the teams that didn't participate at all or provided useless material. It was very frustrating that a few good students worked hard and the rest got credit for work they didn't participate in. But I got out of the program what I put into it and was fortunate to get a few good professors along the journey. I love the learning process and would love to continue my Ph.D. in Psychology but it is way too expensive for me to consider. But if I hit the lotto I will.
I love the way it is set up and how it allows me the opportunity to work efficiently without problems. It helps me learn and know what I am going on the site. It's a great school resource tool for students who preferred to take online courses instead of in-class courses. They both offer the same great opportunity. Overall have been a great experience with facts, information, and knowledge. I recommend.
The overall experience I have had University of Phoenix is great yet there were a few things that slightly turned me away. The courses web pages were a bit clunky at times and that the execution was weird at times. But the teachers were always responsive and prompt and I believe the courses were greatly planned and expected.
The University of Phoenix BS in Accounting program is very educational and rewarding. It is very collaborative and offers many tools for student success. The instructors are knowledgeable about the field of study and offer great insight into real-world application of knowledge in the job market. The program also makes it easy to understand how to do that. I learned a lot from this educational experience and was able to advance my career as a result!
I like that I can do it at my own pace since I work full time. Some classes have been challenging and others not so much. I really have liked the finance classes the most and I doing really well in them. Some of the classes are a little basic and the students are not serious. Some professors don't seem to care that much either, but I will finish with really good grades. Overall I have been a really good student.
University of Phoenix's easy to apply to, administration is quick and simple to deal with and the advisors are really kind and quick to call or email back if any questions arise. It's perfect the way it is currently. I love it, and would recommend it to anyone who lives a very busy life between work life and personal life. In fact I have actually suggested for my daughters to look into it with their busy lives of being parents. I know they both would love to go back to school to finish their degrees.
I had a great learning experience. It gave me a new perspective and insight on the world. It changed my life and made me more intelligent. I got a great score on all my tests as well. Accounting is a passion of mine and I am hoping that the program does not happen to change. I enjoy all of it and will continue this through continued education.
