Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

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.

Degree: Accounting and Business/Management
Graduation Year: 2016

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!

Degree: Accounting and Business/Management
Graduation Year: 2014

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.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2011

Very convenient for a working adult, but very expensive. Overall, the UoP was a good experience for me and helped advance my career. Besides class specific material, it focuses on working within a team, writing skills, and presentation skills. I took an on-campus program.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I respect the University of Phoenix as a great institution for higher learning. I will start off by stating that the curriculum is much more rigorous than the curriculum at my previous institution. I have had some professors that I have respected highly and then there was those that I wouldn't give the time of day. With that being said my educational endeavors at UOPX has been up to par with the instructors. The discrepancies for me teeter in with the surplussed academic and financial aid advisers we once had. We have switched advisers at least 8 times, because of the realigning the University is doing for the betterment of students. I really have no idea why they continuously do that because it is really frustrating dealing with new people every two months or so. Everyone sees your account differently; in addition to having a say so. There is just too many people putting ingredients in the pot and in the end it comes out a catastrophic atrocity. The University of Phoenix also do not hold students accountable for not meeting required deadlines and they are allowed to move right along with others have done so. After they've had a blatant disregard for the stipulation that we were given. As I've spoken to many of my classmates; we indeed feel that some of the things that go in the program are highly unfair. For example, we are told that we have to pass a test by a August. If you do not have the test passed by that time. You must be dropped from the program. You must either go online or wait until the program is offered again at your ground campus. In education, our classes are subsequent (so we were told) you are only allowed to take a class after you pass the ones before it (so we were told). So here is where all that information ties together. You didn't pass the required test in August and you're in group A1. Group A1 continued without you and now you lack 3-4 of those classes, but you've finally passed the test. From we were told you either had the option of going online and finishing or waiting months until B2 starts. But you are NOT allowed to go back to A1 because you did satisfy all the requirements of that group by the deadline. They are a school that say one thing but do another. With Financial Aid, I don't think you should play the blame game. Those advisers have over 200 other students. I would behoove you to make sure that they are keeping your account in order. You're old enough to inquire about what is going on with your account. Do NOT wait until something comes to bite you in the stool for you to realize that things are going haywire. They do not catch every detail of every student. They are not the IRS. They don't sit and analyze every detail of your finances. I am just making an observation. Besides that I graduate next year and I am happy. #IAmAPhoenix Dammit!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE!!! I am a military vet and my classes were not paid. VA did not know I was in school because University of Phoenix FAILED to let them know Ii was enrolled in school. My undergraduate would send my transcripts to the email University of phoenix provided and they said that it never sent. University of phoenix kept encouraging me to continue classes with them but I was not getting paid!! DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL!!!!!
