Since its inception in 1976, University of Phoenix has dedicated itself to focusing on the needs of working adults who balance career, family, community and other life responsibilities. As a regionally accredited university, we’re proud to help the military community connect their education to civilian careers by offering a wide range of degree programs available online and at campuses and learning centers throughout the country. This helps the military community achieve their professional and educational goals no matter where they serve. Courses are conveniently accessible, yet academically rigorous, and applicable to today’s workplace.


University of Phoenix is staffed with dedicated Military Representatives, most with military backgrounds and all with one common purpose: to help military students navigate their financial options, and to support and guide them from enrollment to graduation.


We also have powerful career resources. Our Phoenix Career Guidance SystemTM allows students to review current and recent hiring demands in their local area, as well as the qualifications and education employers are seeking. Included in that system is our Military Skills Translator Tool, which helps match students to careers that align with their military skills.


“As I traveled up and down the I-10 to cover various breaking news, I saw these billboards that featured real people with the degrees they earned, and anecdotes as to why University of Phoenix worked for them as individuals. Those people represented what I wanted to be and where I wanted to go.” – Christina Brown, U.S. Air Force, Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist/TV producer
