What is the University of Phoenix (I hear a lot about this) and does it fall into
the same category as some of the other online institutions?

The University of Phoenix is one of the first traditional accredited universities to offer
complete degree programs via the Internet. At University of Phoenix, you can earn a
Bachelorís, Masterís or Doctoral degree on campus, online, or in certain areas using
a combination of both. University of Phoenix has grown to be the nationís largest
private university, specializing in the education of working adults by offering degree
programs that are highly relevant, accessible, and efficient. With 163 campuses and
learning centers in 33 states, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico and via the Internet, you
can complete a degree program no matter where you live, what hours you work, or
how often you travel or relocate.

The University of Phoenix is fully
accredited and is recognized by CHEA Ė Council for
Higher Education
Accreditation. The university is accredited by The Higher Learning
Commission (HLC) and a member of the North Central Association (NCA).

The North Central Association (NCA) is one of six regional institutional
accrediting
associations in the United States (each is named after the region in which it
operates-Middle States, New England, North Central, Northwest, Southern,
Western). These are the associations that grant membership to all regionally
accredited educational institutions, including Harvard, Princeton and Yale. While
independent of one another, the regional associations cooperate extensively and
acknowledge one another's
accreditation.
