Learning Teams

We are taught the value of getting along with others since kindergarten. Collaboration is still just as important today as it was back then.

That’s why, if you're earning your bachelor’s degree or an advanced degree, you will be assigned to a learning team at the beginning of each new class. Your learning team will likely include three or more students. You’ll work together to complete essays, presentations and more.

By relying on others and having others rely on you, you’ll grow your collaborative skills.

Student Support

Our team approach to learning means you’ll have a built-in support system as you complete your studies. In addition to contributing to your learning team, you'll interact with others in your class—sharing ideas, debating issues and learning from their experience through interactive online forums.

Under the guidance of faculty and with Graduation Teamâ„  support, you can find the resources you need to achieve your college goals.

Stay Connected

You can stay connected with your classmates and learning team members from course to course, and even after you earn your degree. Join us on LinkedIn®, Facebook™, MySpace®, Twitter® and YouTube® and become a part of the University of Phoenix online community.

And as an alumni, you can take advantage of the extensive network in the University of Phoenix Alumni Association.

What you'll experience

Before you enroll, we want you to be informed about the time and financial commitments you'd take on.

University of Phoenix
What to expect video

In school, as in life, clarity is good...Confusion isn't.

No one GETS THAT more than the faculty and staff at University of Phoenix.

That's why we thought it would be helpful to walk you through what to expect...

...and what not to expect...when you attend our University...

...and enroll for course work towards a diploma.

Before you enroll in our University, we must politely ask...

...are you truly willing to make the commitment?

Education requires hard work and dedication.

It demands time...energy...and financial resources.

You'll need to study. You'll need to spend fifteen to twenty hours per week.

You'll need to login to our student website at least four times per week for active class discussion.
Are you willing and able to do that? Are you sure?

Thomas Edison defined genius as "one percent inspiration...ninety nine percent perspiration."

The same is true of education. To succeed at University of Phoenix...

...you'll need to apply yourself and be willing to work hard.

To say the least, we want all of our students to succeed...but you'll need to do your part.

Of course, every job requires proper tools. Education is no different.

Students enrolled in our online programs or in our local campuses...

...must have access to a computer or a laptop.

To do the work assigned, you'll need the necessary supplies and software.

The better equipped you are, the more empowered you'll feel to perform.

Now a brief word about financing.

As you probably know, education isn't free. And money doesn't grow on trees.

Like checkout at any store, paying for tuition is a requirement.

We recommend you plan your financing in advance.

You may qualify for a loan. You may qualify for a grant.

But ALL students are responsible for meeting their financial commitments...

...and all loans need to be repaid when you successfully complete your degree program or if you withdraw from the University for any reason.

Before you make your final decision, we encourage you to thoughtfully consider whether these are commitments you are able and ready to fulfill.

We know you have a choice in schools and you'll need to weigh your options.

Other schools may offer similar programs at a lower cost. Only you can decide which school is the best fit for you.

But if your choice is University of Phoenix, we welcome you....and we'll look forward to helping you unlock your fullest potential.
