Graduating from the University of Phoenix

What did it feel like?

The Scarecrow gets his UoP Diploma?


On September 16, 2007, looking back almost three years, it was a huge sense of accomplishment and relief.  I took every course very seriously and worked hard for excellent scores on every assignment.  I felt very proud of my achievement and so did my family.  I also think that earning this M.S. degree in Computer Information Systems helped prepare me to get better career opportunities in the future.  The longer you are in the Information Technology career field, there are greater and greater expectations for career development, self-education, and improvement.  The M.S. CIS degree is a significant demonstration of the fact that I am taking taking my IT career seriously and hope to work many more years in this field. Visit my career page for more information about my IT career.

My final UoP grades are shown below.




Note: In January 2006, I received a National Science Foundation scholarship and started in the Data Center Technology Certificate Program created by the Institute of Data Center Professionals at Marist College.  Taking two 3-credit hour classes at a time for 12 weeks, with only a weekend between sessions has been a brutal academic endeavor, sometimes requiring as much as 35 to 45 hours of study and course assignment work..  It has been even tougher than getting a graduate degree at UoP, where I only averaged about 30 hours a week.  Anyway, I will finally complete this Data Center Technology Certificate Program in February 2008 after completing my Data Center Accounting class.
