Our Philosophy

Our core goal is to meet the needs of working and underserved students by giving you the chance to earn your college degree. Flexible scheduling, faculty with real-world knowledge and a consistent and effective curriculum design help make higher education accessible to everyone.

Accessibility to Higher Education

We don’t require students to provide standardized college entrance exam scores or essay submissions for admission.

Instead, we want to you to take what you’ve learned and put it to good use. In addition to the basic admission requirements, we ask that you be employed or have access to a working environment where you can apply the theories and methods you learn in class.

Flexible Scheduling

We offer flexible class schedules instead of operating on a semester or quarter time frame. This means you can get started right away and enroll at University of Phoenix year-round.

Practitioner Faculty

We bridge the gap between theory and practice by hiring faculty members who bring more than an advanced degree to the classroom. Faculty members are also working professionals who are encouraged to stay current in their professions and involved in academic and scholarly activities.

Centralized Curriculum Design

Our degree programs are designed to provide a quality education based on relevant and effective learning. Our college Deans and select faculty members collaborate to create each program based on specific objectives for student outcomes.
