University of Phoenix


What They’re Known For

In 1976, John Sperling founded University of Phoenix so working men and women could go to college and earn their degree. What began in Phoenix, Arizona, grew to become the largest private university in North America with locations nationwide. Now, students come here for an education that is relevant to their lives and to the world around them.
