The University of Phoenix
I have had personal experience with University of Phoenix and their online education delivery system. I acquired a Masters and Doctorates through the university, I found that the asynchronous schedule fit my schedule and I was able to complete my degrees from the comfort of my own home. The cost of University of Phoenix fluctuates between programs and levels of education, but with a well managed budget, it is affordable for most people. The cost of a three credit undergraduate course is a little over $400.00, but that includes textbooks and materials The University offers associate, master, and doctorate level programs in business, education, information technologies, and many other content areas.
