  • U. of Phoenix Online thoughts????

    Would doing the online program for a CJ degree be a worthwhile endeavor?

    I've got somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 credits already (no degree, two vocational certificates though) so I shouldn't have to do too many classes the get the degree.

    Do you think it would give a little more aid in getting hired with an agency?
    Really? Guess what, I still don't care.

    I would think as long it is acredited it should be fine.
    But I would like to know the answer cause I just started with them and slated to take the first course next week. I am already a LEO just trying to finish my degree. I picked them because of the full online course load.

      The only problem I've seen with U of Phoenix is that the program is outrageously expensive. When I checked, it was like $400 a semester hour. Even if they give you the maximum amount of credits for work and life experience, thirty I think it is...you would still end up paying about $36,000 for a undergraduate degree. I know that the benefit of finishing your degree online is worth a little extra money...but not that much...at least, not to me. I've looked at some other online programs and they run anywhere between $200 and $400 a semester hour (all accredited).

        I'd never spend money on a "college" that resorts to pop-ups and spam email to attract visitors.

          Bubba, with a fine Community College system, and both the U.C and Cal State system, I would think you'd be set!

          I know our local C.C offers serveral online courses now too.

            I am a Phoenix refugee.

            UoP is accredited, and they are outrageously expensive, but the online aspect was attractive to me, although the deadlines of the 5-week terms can be grueling. I took 4 classes with them, and had a generally good experience however, until my last class.

            The instructor was substandard, and also seemed to have no problem with academic dishonesty. I made complaints through channels and still nothing was done. I left.

            I found a less expensive program here in FL, and so far have been pleased with it.

              I looked around and could not fine many schools online that were cheaper. My dept picks up %100 + books so it doesn't affect me.
              I would like to know of other online schools please let me know.

                I'm taking some of their online classes. It's OK. There is no way I could complete the units going to a traditional school and still work full time and be able to post here (lol). Besides I have a short attention span and 5 weeks is about all I can handle of a lot of topics. So the fact I've been posting here for so long says a lot about this website, it's actually kept my interest for a long time. UOP is accredited and I'm considering transferring to another school so I can graduate from a traditional school. We'll see.. that might not be feasible due to my schedule.

                Let me know how the CJ classes are, I'm taking a few of them starting next month, just as electives, my degree is in Information Technology.

                    Go here for a bunch of links:

                    University of Wisconsin Platteville is a great criminal justice school, however the cost of $500 per credit ($1,500 per course) scared me away.
