3 College Senior

Academic Experience at University of Phoenix - Phoenix: It depends on what the major is. I feel my major isn't very clear in it's unique aspects. The workload and curriculum are good but, I'm honestly not sure about my job opportunities.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience at University of Phoenix - Phoenix: The academics offered at the University of Phoenix are very thorough and the class registration process is easy.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience at University of Phoenix - Online: Like I said before this is a great school. I enjoy everything about it from the students, to the instructors, and the courses. This school has given me a second chance at finishing college and so far I have already earned one degree and am working on another.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience at University of Phoenix - Online: I think that my school focuses on each major in a way that each person can grow in whatever career field they choose. I like that I have one class for five weeks and then it is done. It is enough time to learn what will be needed and applied to my career field. There is always homework and reading and that is good because that is what is needed to succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience at University of Phoenix - Phoenix: I like that I can express my opinions and everyone has an open mind about it.

the workload is heavy but it is workable. Even the classes are five weeks, it calls for discipline and planning. The updates on the online classrooms is very new but it is adjustable.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Aida Garcia
View all previous student authors

For full-time students, the courses are given in blocks of two classes as a full load, even at a brick and mortar traditional campus. The classes are online, and the textbooks that compliment a course are provided online in PDF format. These classes are designed for anyone over the age of 18 that is independently motivated and wants to successfully complete these courses. Students work at their own pace from home, and because it's an independently motivated course, students make the choices to succeed! Students are required to attend classes at least four hours per class per day, and the check-ins for the discussions are four times a week per class or eight times in a week of discussion. Course sessions are normally a nine-week period, with the exception being the Fast Track program, which consists of a five-week course study. Part-time is one class per nine-week session. The classes are very easy to access in the student thread, and you have access to your professor 24/7 by going into the individual forum. In addition to student/professor relationships, students also get to know each other by submitting biographies; they can also chat in a chat room forum.

There are many resources for students. There are workshop labs that a student could schedule themselves into to enhance the study of the course, and in addition to these workshop labs, there is also a wonderful form called the Center for Writing Excellence. Using this resource on an ongoing basis for term papers will help and guide students in grammar and originality. Academic counselors help students select courses that compliment each other. Usually, if a student has a C average or better in a class, he or she can get three credits for the course.

Class Sizes
The class sizes could range from small to large, typically not more than 25 students. They are individually tailored for each student in the individual forums.
Student/Professor Relationships
The relationship that a student has with the professor in an online setting is personal in the individual forums, where the student can address questions to the professor and get test scores on a personal level. The individual forum is not seen by the class. The relationship that a student has with a professor is solely up to the student. Since it is not a traditional school, the relationship is primarily in writing, but if a student prefers to speak to the professor, the professor makes themselves available at the beginning of the course with introductions and a biography.
Testing & Grading Procedures
The testing is done through the assignments, and there are tutorials for almost every class. The submission of written assignments to the Center for Writing Excellence will give you guidance on grammar, editing, and plagiarism. Originality is also included as a percentage of your grade for assignments.
Typical Lecture - Single Day
Reading materials and discussion forums that are assigned weekly.
Typical Course - Start to Finish
The typical course is nine weeks from start to finish.
