University of Phoenix - Bay Area Reviews

I've had a handful of excellent professors, and a few not so great ones. The only complaint I have is it seems as though the professors are sometimes just thrown into teaching a class. The reason why I say this is because when I've asked questions regarding the syllabus, I've gotten answers such as "oh I hadn't actually read through it." That statement just made me question why I'm spending so much money to gain a higher education when the teachers aren't familiar with what they teach. The registration process was easy, I love my financial and scheduling advisors; they are really helpful, quick at responding to my questions and very knowledgeable. They built my schedule for me according to what fits into my hectic work schedule and check in on me to see how I'm doing as I complete each class.

The classes are flexible, every Tuesday night from 6pm-10pm. The campus I attend is roughly a 2 hour commute considering I'm driving in peak rush hour times and I leave work early so that I'm not tardy. That is horrible but you can miss 1 class if absolutely necessary but it's not worth it because the amount of work you cover in that 4 hour class can really put you behind. Plus with the amount of money I'm spending, it's dumb not to go to class or you're basically throwing out $400. Transferring of a couple credits was a bit of a hassle, because even though I had signed the TAG agreement with my junior college and then was not accepted to a four year state college due to impacted programs, University of Phoenix told me they were not transferrable. I fought back and dealt with the admissions department who eventually overturned their decision and awarded me my rightful credits.
The program I am in (Business Admininstration) builds on a lot of the experience I have developed over the years. It reinforces things that I have learned on the job at work and teaches me new tools and ways of looking at different situations. I currently work two jobs in order to fund my education so I would say at times the workload is somewhat overwhelming. The curriculum is covered quickly as the program is accelerated and what is covered in a typical semester, we cover in only 5 weeks. The campus I attend is in a great location, safe neighborhood and the parking lot is well lit, which is comforting being a single woman attending night school. The career portal on the website is a great tool for searching for opportunities that I may be eligible for once I graduate.
