I would like to start off by saying every accredited college or university offers federal aid to students who qualify for it, not just University of Phoenix. I would also like to add that you can take 12 credit hours each semester and the tuition would be about $45oo for two semesters. As far as the quality of the education, I don't know. Typically, you get what you pay for in an education. For instance, an employer will almost always hire somebody with a degree from a school such as Vanderbilt over somebody with a degree from a state school or tech school. However, in this economy, almost all employers are hiring people with experience because it will cost them less to train them then it would somebody who just knows the textbook material of the job. Best of luck to you.

I found no respect in the business world with a MBA from UoP. Before you earn it you will be required to do more work and pay more in tuition then at other universities for a degree that for me has been worthless. The reasons are many. The caliber of the student body extremely low because of open enrollment anyone can attend UoP, and as you will see, most of them could not get accepted anywhere else, so you will be forced to carry those students through the program in the Learning Team environment. UoP does not employee professors or licensed teachers only facilitators who do no teaching only facilitate the class according to a predetermined curriculum. Everything you learn, you will learn on your own, and those who not want to learn anything and just want a degree, they can get that here, which is why I have found their degrees are not respected in the business community. That has been my experience.
