You’re determined. When you make the decision to add college to your long list of responsibilities, having the drive to earn a degree is key. We understand. That’s why University of Phoenix has been helping working students like you realize their education and career goals for nearly 40 years.
Here’s how we keep our degrees relevant, accessible and attainable:
Support for working adults: Flexible online courses that are accessible 24/7, locations nearby, a mobile app and our Phoenix Career Guidance System™ are just some of our available resources.
Credits for prior experience: You've paid your dues, and we recognize that — which is why we provide opportunities for you to earn college credit for your relevant work, life or military experience — so you may be able to graduate faster.
A risk-free trial of our University: Going back to school is a difficult decision. With our Risk-Free Period Program, you can take up to three weeks of your first credit-bearing class with no financial obligation, so you can commit with confidence.
Degrees in relevant fields: Doing what you love — there’s a degree for that. University of Phoenix designs degree programs in a variety of fields with the help of industry organizations. This enables you to connect what you’ll learn to a meaningful career.
