I don't have free time. I work. I have kids. I run a household. But I want my degree.

University of Phoenix exists because there are thousands of people like you who want an education, but can't afford to put life on hold for four, or more, years. Many of our students are working adults who have families and demanding schedules.

Everyone at University of Phoenix, your classmates, instructors and advisors, understands the sacrifices you're making to get your degree. Our learning model reflects this. We help you fit school into your life. That means you can take classes online, on campus or both.

It's still a lot of work, and we definitely won't say it's easy. But getting your degree is possible - if you're willing to work hard and be a little creative with your time.

We believe that every adult deserves the opportunity to earn a college degree. University of Phoenix was established to provide options for a high-quality, higher education.

We offer classes on campus and online, so you can pursue your educational goals and still work and keep up with all of your other commitments. While widely available, not all learning formats are offered at all locations.

Campus based learning.

Go to class near your home or work.

• Attend class once a week at night or on the weekend. At some campuses, you can choose day classes, too.
• Meet with your learning team at least once a week.
• Complete assignments on your own, as well as with your learning team.

Online learning.

Go to class online from anywhere you want.

• Online learning lets you "participate" in class through online forums.
• You access reading materials, lectures, questions and assignments from your instructor online, so you can study when, and where, you want.
• Build teamwork skills by collaborating online on assignments with your learning team.

Earn your degree one course at a time.

While widely available, not all programs are available in all locations or in both online and on-campus formats. Please check with a University Enrollment Advisor.

Let's face it, college is expensive. But, that's no excuse for not going to school. There are a lot of ways to pay for your education- including grants, scholarships, loans, payment plans and more.

Federal financial aid

We participate in many federal student aid programs, including the low-interest Stafford Student Loan, the PLUS Loan and the Pell Grant. There is no charge for processing financial aid applications. Your Enrollment Advisor can discuss these options and walk you through the process while helping you with your application for admission.

Financing options

We offer numerous options for financing your education. Our cash-paying plans let you pay for one course or block at a time, rather than an entire semester or year at once. Alternatively, pre-paying tuition will guarantee that your rate will not increase for the duration of your program.

Company funding

University of Phoenix is eligible for most company reimbursement programs. In fact, many of our students receive all or part of their tuition from their employers.
