One Student Review of University of Phoenix : Online

  • Being a student from the University of Phoenix online, I can only refer directly to the online segment of the college. From 2008 to 2013 I attended UOP and obtained a BSIT and MIS. I had been there through three transitions of the online campus and the user interface. The second online classroom layout was, in my opinion, the best as their latest design seems to be more focused on emulating social media websites.

    In the beginning, a large segment of online conversation was accreditation. Students wanted to know that the online school was accepted at any given job interview after graduation. It had been the largest topic online for roughly a year before it was finally broken down and proven that UOP was in fact accepted as an accredited school. That said, the quality of the course work, in technology programs, is not as challenging or hands on as a student would like if their goal is to gain knowledge, rather than just a degree. Though the MBA is definitely a challenge and only a small percentage of dedicated students do go on to graduate.

    If taking any technology programs online with UOP, you should think of another school that offers better technology programs. The main reason being that you will not learn enough, without your own study and practice, to actually land in the field after graduation. If focusing on business and other programs, then yes, this is the school for you.

    Regarding the professors I can say that I have had some really tough professors both online and on campus and some really good ones as well. The professors at UOP are just like any other professors and expect a certain amount of work on the students part. Some of my professors had to put extra effort into providing a better online learning experience when there was not much that we could learn from the course. Simply put, the professors attempt to take the materials given and make the best of it.

    The courses are five weeks long for undergraduates, and six weeks long for graduate programs. Within the online programs the dashboard is very easy to navigate and there is an online community for students to participate in conversation, where they can speak about any information regarding course materials, job opportunities, and more. This is also a platform that seems like it is turning into something similar to social media as there are thousands of new topics appearing each week.

    When we finally look at the cost of attending online. I found that there is no difference in the cost of an online course and a course on campus. The bad part about this is that on campus you are buying your own books, so in essence the $175 extra for online materials per course seems frivolous to say the least. However, the course online is easier to maintain when it comes to digital materials where it is much easier than toting around a text book forever.

    In the end, UOP is a good school for some, and definitely not the right choice for technology courses.

    Overall Score: (4/5.00)
