Let's get to work.

What do you want to do with the rest of your life?

Maybe you already have an answer. But if you don’t, that’s okay. We can help you figure it out.

When you get in touch with us, we’ll discuss your goals and dreams. If University of Phoenix is a good fit for you, we’ll explore some degree options together and help you find your ideal program. We’ll also talk about how you like to learn and discuss ways to fit school into your busy schedule, so you can make an informed decision about taking classes online, on-campus or both.

Once you’re sure about what you want to study, getting started is really simple. You can complete the entire enrollment process with an enrollment advisor. They’ll take you through it, step-by-step, help you fill out the admission forms, and be your go-to-person leading up to your first day of class. They’ll also set you up with your Graduation Team —your team of advisors that will support you all the way until graduation.

This is an on-demand education, available whenever you want to start. So you tell us when you’re ready. In the meantime, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. And be sure to check out the Visiting Student Center on, where you can get a glimpse of the resources available on eCampus for University of Phoenix students.

We realize everyone’s situation is a little bit different.

There maybe some financial resources available to you that you never knew about, which is why you’ll have a finance advisor that can guide you, step-by-step, through all of your options.

We can make this a little easier in a lot of ways. Our Cash Plan, for instance, allows you to pay for a single course at a time, rather than paying for a full-year or semester-at-once. And if your employer offers tuition assistance, we may be able to set up a third-party billing plan.

You can also apply for Federal Financial Aid online, or find out exactly what each course will cost with our Tuition Calculator tool. And be sure to check out the many possible scholarships to see if you’re eligible.

We want to make sure you’re making responsible decisions, even before you become a student.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a team of dedicated advisors supporting you from the day you enroll until the day you graduate?

Meet your graduation team.

Your enrollment advisor can answer all your questions about what it’s like to be a University of Phoenix student, and can help guide you to your ideal degree program if you’re unsure about what you want to study. They also make the admissions process really simple by walking you through every step.

Your finance advisor is your University financial expert and is always available to talk. In addition to helping you apply for financial aid and scholarships, they can point you to financial resources that you didn’t know were available to you. It helps to know people who know things.

Your academic advisor helps you map out your course of study so you’ll know all the classes you need to take, and the order you need to take them. They’ll also check in with you on a regular basis along the way to help you stay on track.

Your graduation team is there to support you so that you can focus on what matters most—earning your degree.
