Although University of Phoenix has many positives, this still may not be the right fit for every student. There are a variety of degrees, however University of Phoenix may not offer the degree that will help you in your personal educational goals. Students should speak to those who already work in their desired field, check their state's license requirements and all pertinent information to ensure that they are pursuing the correct degree that will help them become gainfully employed. Also, assess your situation and lifestyle. Is this the right time to go to school? Do you have the support you need? How much time can you commit to reading, studying and participating in class to be successful? If it's not the right time, wait for the right time so that you don't get into debt.
