University of Phoenix Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1,038)
I am currently a student at UOP and I feel there are some pros and cons to the program. I am ok with the program I am in "software engineering", but there are things I would change, and I'm sure any student at any university would want to change something, so singling out this school for that would be wrong.
Since I have not graduated yet I do not want to give a full review though. But I would like to request something from those who have graduated instead of spilling out a review of paragraphs of information that barely have any relevance to the actual courses they studied.
1. Provide your program of study 2. Did you graduate 3. Did the program help you get a raise or a job. What extra efforts were needed to get the job?
I am a graduate of UOP and my experience was nothing but positive. Compared to my experience in a traditional college, the experiences were equal. At no time was I taken advantage of, misled or lied to. If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose UOP. I am proud of accomplishment and to top things off; I have not had any issues gaining employment with UOP on my resume.
I AM CURRENTLY A STUDENT AT UOP, AND IT SEEMED TO BE A GOOD SCHOOL IN THE BEGINNING, IT IS UNPROFESSIONAL, THE ADVISORS NEVER KNOW ANYTHING, THE SCHOOLS MAIN FOCUS IS MONEY, MONEY, MONEY. I CANT SAY THAT ALL OF MY INSTRUCTORS WERE BAD BECAUSE SOME WERE GOOD, BUT HERE WERE OTHERS THAT WERE JUST RIDICULOUS. YOU WORK HARD ON A PAPER AND EVEN SUBMIT IT TO THE CWE AND MAKE CHANGES THEY STILL GIVE YOU A BAD GRADE FOR NO REASON AT ALL.
FOR THE MATH CLASSES THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE RESOURCES TO HELP STUDENTS UNDERSTAND. THEY WILL MESS YOU OVER WITH YOUR FINANCIAL AID, THE WORK LOAD IS CRAZY, THE COST OF CLASSES ARE REALLY TO EXSPENSIVE, DONT GO TO THIS SCHOOL OR EITHER TRANSFER TO ANOTHER SCHOOL, IT IS NOT WORTH IT AT ALL, THIS IS THE ONLY SCHOOL THAT HAS BEEN ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA, WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU.
I am an online associates degree student studying human services management, and I feel that this school is definately going to give me a great foundation for my ultimate goal in social work. The courses provided you with so much useful information, especially the core courses. The instructors are great, and there are such practical resources that this university has to offer, such as the student work-life enrichment program. I agree with other person that did a review when she said that this school offer resources that no other university offers.
I recommend this university to anyone! :)
University of Phoenix is a good school; some of this organizations employee needs positive customer service training. Please speak up and assist University of Phoenix employees in obtaining proper customer service training, students should not have to settle for rude or unprofessional service.
Coursework is great, online learning is especially great, make sure to stay on top of personal time management. Most of instructors are positive. I did have issues with a financial and an academic advisors, since he or she are assigned in teams. Please do not settle for less than top positive customer service.
These people work for us, so if any person (student) is not getting top positive customer service get his or her name and either file a complaint, also please remember to file praise(s) for he or she who deserve praises, thank you for your time.
I completed the international version of UOP Masters program and a Bachelor in Engineering at a traditional School. My work involved a lot of travel both domestic and international so it was impossible for me to attend a regular school. The coursework was challenging and most of the professors have experience working for big companies.
Most of my classmates were working professionals and some of them have one or more masters degrees. The school is expensive but is not easy, I spend between 10 to 15 hours each week reading,writing papers and answering questions.My overall experience was excellent and is paying back.If you are a working professional who can't attend traditional schools online school is the best option.
Just graduated yesterday with my Associates degree in business, I will be starting the Bachelors program sooon. This is a great school to attend but not for the LAZY NOR THE COMPLAINERS!! This is not like a regular school, it is designed for working professionals who have a family and other obligations. IF YOU APPLY YOURSELF AND MANAGE TIME WISELY YOU WILL SUCCEED AND LEARN A LOT. My courses were rigorous and extremely challenging. YOU HAVE TO BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR OWN EDUCATION YOU GET WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT!
This is a great school and I would highly recomend to those who are interested!
I get my Associte in July, and have really enjoyed all my classes except one.(Com-220/Female)I've found that some of the instructors teach like ROBOTS if you ask a question its alway refer to your course syllabus which sometime are not clear. WE ARE TO LEARN and some instructors treat you like a child, if it wasn't for us they wouldn't have a job to teach. Over-all the school is good, I've been thing of transfering to another school. I've only spoke with my advisor three times and she was unprofessional
UoP is certainly not for everyone. I finished the second half of my Undergraduate Degree online, and at first I really missed the "classroom" experience and interacting with "real" people. I also became a bit jaded at first because I felt that I was really just teaching myself; however, I also realized that some of my former on-campus classes were the same way.
It took me about 6 months to get used to the online format, (i.e. TONS of reading, TONS of writing, PP Presentations, etc.)and I did feel like quitting several times, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. Most of my Facilitator's were amazing, brilliant people who were very willing to assist students in any way possible.
My Financial Aid specialist was also extremely helpful and kept after me about my application. The worst part of the entire experience was the required group work and all the PP Presentations. That said, I am so glad I did it, because I am now attending Grad School back on-campus, and I feel as if I am more prepared for it than many of the other students in my classes.
Most of them are not used to researching, writing, discussing and having to do presentations. For me, it's just normal. UoP can be extremely challenging for many people, which is probably why they dislike it so much. Though, I feel like it did a great job of preparing me for the "Real World."
I am on my 5th block of classes and I have yet to read any course material - and I have a 3.8 GPA. As long as you give "politically correct" answers you will receive a passing grade. In addition, be prepared to translate text lingo and emoticons from your fellow students. I think the classes are actually filled with 10 year olds. If you are looking to BUY your degree, not earn it, UOP is for you.
