I can only give top marks to UoP. I could not finish my Bachelor's at the traditional University I was previously attended, due to job and family commitment, and this was a wonderful experience. If you are not a self-motivated, self-disciplined self-starter, keep on going because UoP is not for you. The program is very intense, more so than traditional university, and if you are not dedicated, you will not make it. I did, and was very proud to walk in 2013!
"I found University of Phoenix Online as well as seen many commercials, I was hesitant at first to apply. But once I spoke with an admissions counselor I was able to decide right then and there that I wanted to go back to school. At this point I was out of school with an Associates Degree in Business Management for 5 years. I returned after having my second child and worked full-time. I completed my Bachelors Degree in Accounting within 1.5 years. It has now been 7 years that I am out of school and I am pursuing the option of going back in September of 2016 for my Master's in Accounting with the Bridge Certificate for CPA. This is one of the best schools I have attended."
Don't ever take a class from the University of Phoenix. What a waste of time and money. They promised support, both with tutors and online lectures and tutorials. They had none of that. Navigating the site was a nightmare. If I could go back, I would never have even considered them. What a waste. They didn't tell me I could buy my own book, so I was charged even more for that when i could have gotten it online for 20 bucks. A lack of information and communication. I didn't pay $1000 to have a professor to grade me on how well I read a book.
I recently graduated with my Associates of Arts degree in Criminal Justice, and now I am currently pursuing my Bachelors in Criminal Justice with University of Phoenix online classes. I love that you can move at your own pace, and teachers are available online with various means of contacting them. There is many resources online available to help students survive through all their classes.
When I attended University of Phoenix I was dealing with a lot of health issues but I kept pushing to finish my MBA program. When I graduated from UoP I was so honored to walk across the stage with a smile on my face. 3 years later I obtained my dream job as a Financial Analyst due to my MBA.
By attending UoP, I was able to work full-time and attain my degree. I had a very good experience and had no issues with getting feedback or clarification on anything that I did not understand from any of my instructors. If you are dedicated and a self-starter, you should have no problems with your courses. I walked across the stage in July of 2008 and it was a great day for me. I was happy to be able to attend school and work full-time because I am a single parent.
This school has gone down. Staff changes every three months. They misinform you of information that you need. WHAT HAPPEN? ON the focus of success. YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT just a number!!!!! I am disappointed in this School, To deal with this kind of staff that passes you along and not focus on your future is hurtful.
The college does not help you to learn and does not help when you have a problem with in instructor or school dispute, which they should offer you since you are taking out a loan. plus the school said I would only need 12,000 loan to complete this program but was putting me further in debt with more
No problems at all attending the University of Phoenix while in the military. Really helped my career a lot. No problems at all attending the University of Phoenix while in the military.

The classes are good, most instructors are helpful in the area of assisting each student, most not all. The degree program allows for a wide area of study that may be of help if the student decided to change degree. But I have had nothing but problems with the financial aid advisors, each time my grant is in, the FA will not place the entire amount due in my account she is always very slow about it, (months delayed) and recently lost (somehow) over two hundred dollars out of my grant amount and I am yet waiting for this to be recovered and placed in my account. Every time I call, the FA is rude, abrupt, and one more than on occasion very insulting. I told her that as an online student I needed the funds to keep my internet up as so I could continue classes without missing any of them and she told me "that is not my problem" and actually hung up. No one has or will give any exact answers as to what has happened to the funds owed to me and each time I call I am treated very unkindly and very unprofessional.
