Go someplace else. The school has its conveniences, no doubt! The curriculum is so so, more analysis than fundamentals such as writing, user friendly and constructive math. This school does not make it easy to transfer to tier 1 schools. It is designed to keep you at Phoenix, while missing varies college benefits. The staff is very uninformed. They make it hard to graduate due to the communication issues between departments. A student working their butt off should at least get a phone call when they are out of attendance, as a result of "lack of communication".. They find ways to make extra money off of you. I was in the last week of class, all assignments complete...but I didnt post one word " check-in " that week (I posted all my assignments in one day) to be counted in attendance and was dropped. I was never informed of the check in..just posting twice a week, but at the time I had completed everything.. nothing to post! 1375.00 charged out of pocket ..(Financial aide didn't cover this) I had to retake the class. I was punished here. It was my daughters high school graduation week. Rude staff will talk over you. You have a mentor and graduation coach at the beginning they drop off after your third class. No stars here! I'm done.
Great University with a very rigorous Doctoral program. The University prepares its Doctoral Students to face any academic and research challenge. This University has helped me achieve my career goals in academics. The dissertation process is a bit long by makes sure that standards are met.
This is not an easy school. I thought it would be a piece of cake but you have to work and you have to work REALLY hard to EARN your degree. It is not given to you. Anyone looking to make "easy" A's - this is NOT for you. Anyone thinking that UOP is a "degree mill" - DO NOT apply. I have never worked so hard for anything as I did this degree but it is MOST DEFINITELY worth it.
I had an excellent experience as a student in the University of Phoenix. I learned, the teachers and advisors were very helpful and I was well prepare to continue my master in another college. I graduated from GCU and thanks to the work given in University of Phoenix, I graduated from my masters degree with a GPA of 3.49.
My college experience was non-traditional at the time; although, in the three elapsed years since I believe it is becoming less non-traditional. My college is a for-profit institution so the cost is much higher than most schools but I was able to complete my degree online while working full time and raising a family along with the help of my wife. I am honored to have a degree from University of Phoenix. I believe that a college degree helps sets you apart from your peers in your ability to stick with something and see it through to completion. I also believe very strongly that I would not be in the current position I am today without a college degree.
Dont attend this school! save your money and DO YOUR HOMEWORK!! THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE!!! I started attending this school in February of 2012 and I am almost done but I honestly feel scammed. I was told I would have to pay 75k for a 5 year b.s. degree and now I have to pay 10 thousand more????? apparently each year according to "department of financial affairs" students are only entitled to 12500 per year and apparently I exceeded that. Absurd!!! Do you homework everyone before attending any school!
I finished my associate degree in accounting at University of Phoenix and started on my Bachelor degree this year. Tuition costs in the associate program were fair, but when I started the Bachelor program the costs almost doubled, and when the course costs did not take all of my student funding the tuition and materials costs were increased by another $150, and now on top of student loans (unsub and sub) I have outstanding school charges as well. I was unprepared and unadvised that my tuition costs would rise by such a ridiculous amount and am now in the process of searching for a school that is not trying to take all college funding that I have available to me. So Associate Degree=fair deal/Bachelor Degree=poor deal.
Going to College changed my life. I was able to get the educate to become successful and succeed my goals in life. I pushed myself to finish to the end. Having this degree has giving me many opportunities.
This is not by any means a technical college. Certifications in the IT field will go a long way further in this career field than a Bachelors from here.
I am still actively enrolled in with the University of Phoenix and I have been for a year now. I am an Army Vet and I have to say the VA rep who helped me enroll was great. They took care of all the paperwork for me. All I had to do was print them, sign them, and send them back. They took care of sending the documents to the Dept. of VA and I have never missed a payment. I am currently using my Post 9/11 GI bill and it is working great. I am almost done with school, I should be graduating mid 2016. I have been in school for a year now and till this date I get calls from the school's VA rep and my financial advisor to find out if I need anything and how things are going. Both of them walked me through every class to begin with and made sure I knew how to log on and complete and submit assignments. I highly recommend this university to anyone especially military veterans. Oh yeah, and the school's VA rep's name was Anthony, he did a awesome job. They also offer an advanced prior learning evaluation to waive courses from your program. They used all my military education and my police academy certification to waive several of my classes in my program. It was free for military transcripts and state certified police academy certificates as well.
