    University of Phoenix Review Highlights

    Students with experience at both campus-based schools and University of Phoenix online appreciated their professors. Joseph A. wrote, "I took most of my classes through a brick and mortar university, and to tell you the truth, I actually got more response through the [University of Phoenix] staff and faculty." Other students note the academic rigor of coursework. Additionally, military students note in reviews that they appreciate the school's freedom and flexibility. One student mentioned the convenience of having specially trained military enrollment counselors separate from regular academic counselors.

    A handful of students question the quality of education they received at University of Phoenix. One student suggests that the school revise its teaching philosophy, including the heavy emphasis on group projects. Joe J. wrote, "You can work really hard on your part and often times, someone will lack the motivation to do their part well. Thus, bringing everyone's grade down because one or more person lacked to do their part right or turn it in at an acceptable time for [the] group leader to correct." Other students mentioned dissatisfaction with the school's reliability, particularly among academic advisors. Melany Y. wrote, "I noticed that my academic and financial advisor changed a lot throughout the program. If they would remedy these issues, I think it would make attending [University of Phoenix] a much better experience."
