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.

Life’s responsibilities may make some people feel as though they are hop scotching from one stressful situation to another. You juggle work. You’re busy getting the kids off to extracurricular activities. And then, at one point, you decided to throw in the pursuit of a college degree ...
The stresses associated with being a non-traditional student juggling schoolwork, family life and professional responsibilities can cause even the most committed and ambitious student to falter.
