Education built for working adults
Today, you couldn’t imagine having to choose between working and going to school. Yet that was the reality for many adults trying to earn their degrees — until John Sperling came along. When he opened these doors in 1976, Sperling didn’t just change higher education forever. He gave workers like you the chance to shape your future.
Why University of Phoenix?
Shorter classes, smaller course loads
They say you should tackle big projects by breaking them into smaller tasks. We handle that part for you. By taking just one 5 or 6 week course at a time, you can focus on every assignment, skill and victory — up until you reach the big one: graduation.
Classes for the way you want to learn
You’re not one to get sidetracked by obstacles, and we’re in the habit of removing them by giving you flexibility. Study online or on campus — or, in some cases, a combination of both — and pursue your degree your way.
Credit for the work you’ve done
Transferring prior college credits is just one way to save on your degree. Your life experience may count, too. Apply to have relevant work or military experience evaluated for potential tuition-saving college credit — and earn your degree faster.
The same price from start to finish
Life is unpredictable. Your tuition doesn’t have to be. With our Tuition Guarantee, you’ll keep the same affordable tuition from the day you start until the day you graduate. That way, you can focus on what matters — like pursuing your dreams.
Education that counts in more ways than one
Learning theory is important. Knowing how to apply it on the job is even more so. That’s why our instructors have advanced degrees and an average of 23 years of real-world experience — to ensure you learn skills you can use.
