5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility at University of Phoenix - Phoenix: Everything has been very easy to access and I have not had any complications at all. Of course when you first start it ay be difficult. However after your first week you catch on very quickly. They have live labs to help you with problems, mainly math problems. Those are the labs I used the most because I struggled in that area. Along with live tutors to help you with things you may require assistance with. It was just very convenient and no problems occurred.

Class schedules are very flexible, and work can be completed at your own pace at any time of day, with the condition of submitting assignments on the due dates. Any type of scheduling can be utilized with the flexible e-campus arrangement. Student reading materials or texts are available before classes start, and to understand assignments, it is good to peruse assignments before due dates to have a better understanding of the curriculum. The class courses require and are designed with a great amount of independent study and independent motivation.

Utilizing the flexibility of the e-campus environment is the student's decision! However, classes are generally so flexible and practical that it is very easy to complete requirements and also to complete them faster than a traditional school session. E-campus courses are great at developing planning skills and organization. They will also develop and build on your communication skills on two different levels in business: the team communication process and the individual process.

Academic/Testing Requirements
The assignments must be read through, and students will be tested on cognitive and comprehension skills.
Transferring Credits In & Out
The enrollment counselor will apply information related to any previous college attendance and request transcripts from you and the college last attended. This process is very easy, and the counselor wants to ensure you get every credit available toward your selected degree and pass any testing like CLEP and SATs for enrollment.
Work & Life Experience Credits
Work and life experience credits are given for individuals that have attended seminars or have interned for college credits with approval from the University of Phoenix. All credits are not applicable; therefore, students should request academic counselor assistance in resolving the credits.
Typical Session Length
The typical session is nine weeks long, and this is short considering the length of classes for traditional schools. There is also a five-week session called Fast Track.
Class Style & Structure
The classes are small, with 15 to 25 students per class. The professor provides one-on-one assistance to every student in the individual student forums. The professors are available on practically a 24/7 basis, and you have the advantage of online instant access, e-mail, or the telephone.
Course Registration Process
