Great school! Great Professors! Faculty and staff work together to help current and future students reach their goals. The classes are flexible and smaller sizes so there is more interaction and communication among students and staff. Classes are interesting and useful in today's society. There are even more courses that focus on today's new way of learning and communicating. I would recommend this school to any new mom, stay at home mom, recent high school grads and even working individuals. I am very thankful for the knowledge and information that I have gained from the University of Phoenix on line campus.

From the time I applied, and through the admissions process an advisor helped me complete everything. I love the fact that they encourage their students to only borrow what they need. In my first college experience, the advisors only informed me that I needed a loan and I applied. I received the money and didn't make very good choices and ultimately ended up quitting. Now, many years later I am back in school and prepared to see my educating through all the way this time. The professors are very helpful in giving advice to succeed when doing assignments. They also prepare you for your future classes and encourage you to associate with your classmates. Online classes are similar to in campus classroom when it comes to communicating with everyone. Although you're not face to face the forums still give you the opportunity to socialize and experience different opinions. Thus far, this has been a great experience and I look forward to my future!
University of Phoenix online is a good online college to use when you need flexibility. I was able to sign up for a class the day and started, which was really convenient. The classes are also shorter than a normal term, which is really beneficial when you need to take multiple classes. The only downfall is the attendance requirement for the online courses. You have to post something online 3 out of 7 days a week. This was very annoying because you can fail the class do to this policy!
