University of Phoenix Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1,035)
I'm still actually going to this school, and it's a joke. I know myself and a few of my friends have been waiting months for or disbursements. They keep changing the reasoning to way we are still waiting. Honestly I rather know the truth then be given the run around. We have all talk to other collages and students and they all tell us that the University of Phoenix is bad news, That it's about numbers not the students well being.
The University of Phoenix is not a good college to attend. The instructors are not supportive of students. They intentionally fail student. Have you have any issue with your classes, they will not resolve it, but they just want you to repeat the classes and take you money. Please do not go to this university. It is a disaster.
I had an extremely positive experience with UoP. Provided me the basics I needed for a business degree, guided me in the development of a business plan that started a new business, and provided the analytical and executive decision making that I needed to propel my career. Ten years later, I am an executive in a Fortune 25 company running a $3 billion dollar business. Like any school, you get out of it what you put into it.
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!
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.
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.

I attended campus classes once a week, then the other portion was online. I am satisfied with my experience in this school, with the instructors, and with my earned degree. I agree that it is an expensive option, but when I considered the time it would take to attend a regular college with the commute and book fees, this seemed like a better option for me. I did not get this degree for higher pay, but more for a career requirement, since most hospitals are now hiring more BSN nurses vs ASN, so I cannot comment on now making a higher salary. I would recommend this option for nurses, it is a flexible way for working adults to get their degree completed.
