We believe everyone deserves access to higher education.
I've finally found an education that's tailored to my life and academic goals.
In 1976, John Sperling founded University of Phoenix so working men and women could go to college and earn their degree. What began in Phoenix, Arizona, grew to become the largest private university in North America with more than 100 campuses and learning centers. Now, students come here for an education that is relevant to their lives, and to the world around them.
Whether you go to class online or on campus, you'll find:
- Class times that fit with your work, family and social life.
- Small class sizes for engaging discussion and interaction with your classmates and instructor.
- Faculty who combine their personal knowledge of the field with proven academic theory.
- Up-to-date curriculum that is developed in collaboration with faculty and industry experts.
- Personalized student support from a team of advisors who help you from enrollment to graduation.
- A world-class online library that is available 24/7, so you have access to scholarly research, when you want.
Gain knowledge you can use tomorrow, not in four years.
I'm looking for a degree program that teaches me what I need to know—not what a textbook says is important.
At University of Phoenix, you learn from a curriculum designed by experts in your field of study, whether you're earning your associate's, bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree. Our curriculum is developed in collaboration with our faculty and industry professionals to ensure that it is up-to-date and relevant. This means our programs aren't wasting your time; instead, you're gaining knowledge one day that you can use at work the next. Program availability varies by location and learning format.

When it comes to paying for college, you have options
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.
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.
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.
