    The courses are 5 weeks in length. UOP is by far, the fastest paced online courses I have taken. If you are not up and on your feet on day one, you can get incredibly far behind. 5 weeks compared to 15 weeks in a typical semester. Translation, miss a day with UOP and it is like missing 3 days of a traditional class.

    UOP requires quite a bit of writing. Every class I took also had a team project which has it's own little nuances in an online environment.

    The good thing that got me through a few classes was the thought that it was only five weeks long.

    Very expensive as well. The last class I took last year was $1500. for 3 credits.

    Hope this is helpful,

    I go to UoP and have to say that I love the online environment and the way in which the courses are set up. My instructors have been outstanding! I think I am getting a better education with UoP than I would have received at my traditional ground college. You can't beat being able to go to class and not have to find babysitters for the kids. It really is great. Good luck and I hope you decide to go!
